    other than a 1911?
     
  2. G21. It's a 4.6" barrel, which I figure is ~4. Can't go wrong with reliability, low cost, and simplicity.

    I would suggest you consider the Dan Wesson Bob Tail... in .45 or 10mm

  12. I didn't want to be the one to bring up the 10mm, but since it has been brought up... Get a 10mm.

    I shoot my 220 better than my 1911's. Yes I love my .45's.

    Yup.

    I just disposed of my G21. G21SF might be a better choice with the smaller grip, but the recoil on a G21 is pretty ferocious compared to my P220 and the single 1911 I once rented (but not the Baby Eagle). Probably something to do with most of the mass being in that huge slide... Baby Eagle has a similar problem with a heavier slide and the metal frame does nothing to buffer that recoil.

    Love mine. It's my second handgun and even though I've had less range time with it than my USPc, I'm a better shot with it.

    I'd like to try an M&P45 mid size. 4" barrel with 10 round mag cap.

    Very controllable I love it. It is more of a push. See if squid will chime in he has the 29 and 30.
