I have an H&K USP 45C--it is NOT a small piece, as it is made to handle constant +P loads, but it carries well and is ultra reliable and more accurate than I am.

You said a good cc .45, but did not specify which type. 45 Automatic Colt Pistol, 45 Long Colt, 454 Casull? Hell no. This is what you need.

American Derringer in .45-70. Definately a one-shot wonder. Fire it once and you'll wonder why the hell did you buy it. From American Derringer you can buy a single shot version, and double barrel version with 2 shots of 45-70, or one where the top barrel is 45-70 and the bottom barrel is 45LC/410 shot.

YouTube - 45-70 derringer
Video of one brave soul.

Genitron.com: Details for American Derringer Model 1 .45-70 Government Pistol
Here is a website that I found that has a lot of useful data on different guns. For the American Derringer in 45-70, it says that the recoil force is 183.681 ft lbs for the single barrel. That is THEE most powerful recoil of any handgun that they have data on. The might 500S&W in the 2.5" snubbie bear gun only, "ONLY" has a recoil force of 68.908 ft lbs.

So there you go, a nice little concealable 45.
That thing is insane!

Seems like a decent back up (or maybe even primary if you're ballsy) for bear hunting.

Well I was all set on wanting the .45...that is until I went looking at guns and handling a few. I found a few I liked quite a bit but the one that felt best to me and was still well within my price range was the Glock 27, which as I'm sure you all know is a .40. Should be a very easily concealable piece that is easy to find accessories for.. It helps too that my wife's uncle gave me 300 rounds of Golden Saber .40 cal hollow points and 100 rounds of target ammo since he had it just sitting around and no .40 to use it in. I'll probably still caryy my full size .45 in the winter and what not when I have a heavy jacket, or sweatshirt on, but this should be a great gun for shorts and t-shirt weather.

Take a good look at the Kimber Stainless Ultra Carry II 3". It's easy to conceal almost any time of year and it's accurate.

I actually carry the G21. It's not very hard to conceal in winter clothes. I'm also a bigger person tho.

Save some money, invest in the right belt, holster and how you dress. Lots of options depending on where you like your pistol to be.
