I have a full size .45 and a Kimber custom carry w/ 3" barrel. The short barreled version is slightly less accurate, but mostly the shorter sight radius is inherently less accurate more due to the human behind the gun than the gun.
I also find the smaller gun much more difficult to handle the recoil...a seasoned shooter will do better, but for me, it is sharp!
The picture below is from about 20 yards on a bench...that last group was about 25 rounds in to my laser sighting in activity....the second batch of 25 wasn't as good as I think I was beginning to fatigue mentally. I thought it was pretty good for me and gave me a lot more confidence in the gun.
Man once surrendering his reason, has no remaining guard against absurdities the most monstrous, and like a ship without rudder, is the sport of every wind.

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.
