You wonder if the safety switches off too easy on the Kimber but are considering a glock with no safety??

Where has common sense gone?

Do you know why the 45 "felt nice"?

Because it was designed by a man to be used by a man.

Not designed by a computer to be sold!

95% + of today's shooters know the feel but don't know why.

Look at the graphic below and join the 5%.

If you can make it to Burlington to Handgunner's one of us can give you some thoughts. You can rent several handguns for $8 a piece to decide what feels right to you.
