How about the new Springfield 1911 EMP (Extreme Micro Pistol) in a 40?

Sig P245 -- it's a little short on the handle, but shoots like most Sigs -- awesome. It's pretty easy to conceal too.

You're on the right track there. I think the little subcompact 9s are PERFECT for the CCW holder. My own is a Kel Tec P11, more my price range and I've been very impressed with it for 11 years and over 11K flawless rounds now. It holds 11 rounds (13 with the new magazines) and fits in a pocket, 14 ounces unloaded weight. That's the beauty of the subcompact 9s, firepower, horsepower combined with easy carry. I alternate mine with an alloy .38 snub (which I'm carrying today) in a pocket or IWB if necessary depending on dress code in a Mitch Rosen Workman tuckable rig.

There are choices for subcompact 9s, Rohrbaugh is the smallest if you're rich, Kahr has several models, Taurus PT111, Kel Tec P11 or PF9. The G26 is on the large and heavy side and I wouldn't pocket a "safe action" anyway, even with a good pocket holster. But, if IWB is your thing, the G26. If I know I have to carry IWB, I'll often put my Ruger P90 or my Taurus M66 3" .357 magnum in a Sparks Summer Special, but the little 9 or 38 get most of my wear. They're effective and convenient/easy to carry all day every day.

Yea the judge. It looks nice but its not the only one. Any handgun made for the cartridge 45 long colt can accept .410 shotshells.


You keep saying that and it ain't so. You cannot chamber a .410 shell in a standard .45 Colt cylinder no way, no how, it won't fit. It ain't a dangerous situation because it just won't fit. Might as well try to stuff a .50 BMG round in that .45. :no: :lol:

Made my first range trip with the SP101 today and my chronograph and a collection of my favorite handloads. The little fart shoots to POA with 3 of my magnum loads AND my wadcutter load! What are the chances of THAT happening?! My hottest load is a hunting load I worked up for my very stout 6.5" Blackhawk and I won't fire it in medium framed guns with side plates like K frame Smiths. It shoots nearly 800 ft lbs out of the Blackhawk and out of the SP101 it shoots just over 1300 fps for 662 ft lbs. That one's accurate if I can keep from flinching. It HURTS to shoot it, not the load you wanna practice with. But, I managed a 2" 25 yard group with it not counting called flyers from flinching, dead on at 25 yards. It involves a 180 grain Hornady XTP/JHP and a stout charge of Accurate AA#9. The load I will carry is a 140 grain Speer/17 grains of 2400, produced a 3" group and 550 ft lbs energy and shot to point of aim. Not bad at all from a 2.3" barrel. Even my .38 wadcutter load shot to point of aim, though, and a little over 2" groups. That's unheard of. :thumbsup:

So, I think I have a new CCW and a nice little back packin' gun to boot! I do have other guns I like a lot and shoot well for outdoor carry, but this little thing is nice and light, accurate, stainless, small, easy to tote, and very powerful. I like it!

Do not carry it concealed, but I do carry it... .40 ACP from Hi-Point. $100 brand new and has a lifetime warranty. Thing is huge though. Shoot straight and will put a hurtin on something if need be.
