I have never heard of a psych eval for a CCW! I had to get one once for a job and the psychiatrist said he wished HE was as well-adjusted as I was! It really made me question his mental health...

Haha poor guy. Yeah it's basically ridiculous. Oh another thing when getting a CCW permit here, it says on the forms to expect a visit from the cops so they can interview you, at your house. It also asks for references, and says they will be interviewed and they will also interview your neighbors.

This is seriously sounds like getting a security clearance...

Try on a Para Warthog. It has a good size. And it just looks like it would beat you up and take your lunch money.

Yep. Nice looking gun.
A compact 1911 is a great choice.

Single stack was pretty much a given to keep the width down. If it takes more than that, you have back ups, if you use up your back ups well then you shouldn't have been there in the first place was my thoughts.

I appreciate both of your information and will keep it in mind. I am looking forward to getting back home (Afghanistan right now) and be able to actually put these babies in my hand at least and see how they feel. Been kind of a revolver man before and my pistol is a 1873 Cattleman .45 LC, just not something you carry around unless you are out on the range (cattle chasing range) or up in the hills.
Your Welcome!

Good Luck and be safe over there. Let us know when your back in CONUS, if you find any particular gun that you do like and give us the name/model, we will be able to list out several comparable models of the same size for consideration.

Tack

an excellent pistol. The Companion in 45ACP is another great one form them. I have a Para LTC that I would to trade for anything. It's been with me for years now and I just keep liking it more.

Should come up with more but am blanking.

The Bersa really is a top notch gun too, but already mentioned, just wanted to give it dues.

XDs also seems like nice gun, but I don't do anything without a hammer and with how thin it is I don't believe you'll wind up liking the fit much.
