I have a Kimber Cutsom TLE II that I got a deal on and it is absolutley the most accurate handgun I have ever shot I have also shot a .45 Springfield XD and it was also a great shooting gun.

I was just about to pick up another HK USP 45 and then seen the new Handguns magazine, FN now has a 15 round (14 mag 1 chamber if i read it right) 45 acp. They say that the grip size is very manageable. I will have to get my paw prints on one to see how it feels. I also like the new ruger 9mm they just announced. Looks nice, accurate(in their test) and cheap to shoot :yes:

too many guns and too little time. I do not have enough time to shoot what I have and WANT MORE :help:

S&W 329 not a good carry gun? noone else has mentioned a wheel gun... just thot id throw that in there.

the slidey guns are fun to shoot at paper, but a 44mag will slow down most any mean critter, 2 legged or 4, alot faster...

I prefer 45 caliber my self, i own several, my carry guns are all 45acp. I prefer a 1911 or a springfield armory xd in 45acp. the one thing i really like about the xd over the glock is that the grip on a xd is not as thick as a glock, and they both have 13 round in the mag, the xd feels better to shoot, i am not a small guy but even to me a glock 45 grip feels a little i like the fact that even tho that a xd shares a trigger a little bit like a glock, the xd has the grip safety on it.
