    What are the advantages to each? I know the 4 is earier to conceal, but if i wanted that i would get the compact 3 inch model. Just looking for opinions.

    Doesn't really matter.
    Seen Verm put almost identical groups out of his 3", 4" and 5" so accuracy isn't much of an issue.
    the 5" just has a longer distance between sights so aiming is easier than on the 3".
    The 3" is good for concealing, the 4" is ok and the 5" works just fine in a shoulder holster or on the hip if you are used to carrying a 1911 or other full size gun.


    I am getting a 4" myself since it's easier than the 5" to conceal and still full sized. (plus they don't make the 45acp model in a 3") :)

    Get the 4". It's easier to carry, and the 5 isn't any more accurate than the 4" . I have a 4" and my buddy has a 5. I like my 4 a ton better... and he wishes he had gotten a 4.

    ewww no! not an AK? now we have to start a new argument AR>AK

    ....but mainly for a beater gun (jk)

    I have an AR.. I want an AK, just because I have always wanted one and people reaction when they see one.
    I have shot one before, its just a crude gun.. would be a nice beater

    i had the 4", and sold it when I bought the 3". If you plan on carrying at all, just go for the 4", I don't see any advantages to the 5" except for the longer sight radius.
