I saw that 'covert' in your tag line. I'm quite happy with mine.
I certainly don't have any of the "3 inch problems" that some report.

My normal ammo is the FMJ 230 gr, 5.5 grains Unique. My Moles and Coons don't deserve better bullets and they feed well. I keep a few mags of defensive ammo for the road.

Yep. Sometimes paying a little (or a lot) more money for a top quality gun pays off in quality of the gun and can save you in the long run by avoiding replacing a cheaper gun that was not so great a bargain. I have a Para Warthog that for a 3-inch barrel is quite accurate and dependable, and is easy to conceal. I won't be getting rid of it in the foreseeable future.

I have a Kimber Ultra CDP II and absolutely love it. Yes I did have to send it back in after the 500 round break in for some feed ramp work and they replaced the extractor while they had it. Since then it has run perfect with anything I stuff into it. The next 3" will be a Sig C3 a buddy picked up a used one for $550 that looked brand new. Sig got this one right. Shoots great, conceals well, looks great.

My Kimber runs so well now, that I though about getting one of those PSA 1911 for $329 just so I could fuss over one.
(I also had Kimber send a new extractor to me, not sure what happened ? ? )

I picked up a RIA Compact a couple of years ago. Really enjoyed it. But it had feeding problems. With everything sent it back came back fixed.

Now I have a Sig 1911 Ultra Carry, great pistol. Love shooting it, very easy to conceal and carry. Price tag was not to bad $950 out the door with 2 boxes of ammo.
