    The Gun I love To carry

    Can't we just get along? Guys, why all the hostility? Glocks are fine guns. Lots of police and federal agents use them. 1911's were the choice of our military for nearly 100 years and some special forces still use them. Will Glocks be remembered 100 years from now? maybe. Regardless...

    My New .357

    Don't get me wrong, I love my RIA 1911's and carry my compact model constantly; however, I wanted a wheelgun. I had a Rossi J-frame .38, but the grip is pretty small and it's hard to control with my big hands. So I sold that and got an EAA Windicator .357. Link Removed Steel frame, 6-rounds...

    What holster do you use???

    For my RIA 1911's, I use a basic Galco paddle holster, but I didn't like the cold plastic against my skin, so I glued a leather shield to it for more comfort. Works for the compact and the full size as well. Link Removed

    A little Advice

    Can't vote So, I can't vote because my choice is not in the list. I'm sure any of these handguns would do just fine, but here's my vote: Link Removed It's a Rock Island compact 1911 in 45ACP. Slim, easy to conceal, reliable, and the RIA guns won't break the bank. AND it's a .45 :biggrin:
