.45 suggestions.

Probably going to be getting my new .45 soon (antis please stay out of this, it is OT) and want some suggestions/advice.
Renewing my carry lic, I have never had a "civilian" lic before, I had a commercial lic. I'm sure it is very different.
I know I can't carry where they sell open alcohol, state/govt property and some other places. That will be different, but not much.

I am looking at the Glock Slimline .45 or this one. If I remember correctly it is the Glock 6.
I really hate the weapons with the thick handles.


What is the difference between the APC round and the straight .45, which is what I always carried?

I liked that I could get my target ammo at Wal-Mart.

I was thinking of getting my cock shortened. Any suggestions? It's just so big, and ungainly. I'd like to get it under 24 inches at least......but 18 might be ok too.....

I know the apc was developed for the Thompson, but don't know the details.
Does not look like I'll ever own a US gun... all my previous weapons are from Germany, the Springfield is a company they purchased from Croatia and they just import it.

rk -

I'm sorry I can't give you any advice, as mine is an old M1911. I haven't looked at any of the newer ones.

Some of my Hapkido instructors are also handgun instructors. I'll ask if they have any recommendations. Are you determined to go with a .45 for concealed carry? Or are you open to other options? How will you carry it?

I have a few options for carry, as I have the chair... but yes, only a .45. I miss my old officer's model, but it was really heavy and am wanting to go with the newer, lighter, type.

Were you planning on doing anything about the girth? I really hate weapons with thick handles.

Suggestiong number 1. Yes it is silly to think people would stay on topic in this place.

I already stated it was a pipe-dream.
You already went over your .45... thanks for the suggestion.

I wasn't counting the decimal point. I still have 44 to go.

In a recent Star magazine there was an article about a 15th birthday celebration. This phrase was used: "La fiesta de quince anos." The word "anos" is spelled incorrectly, because in order for it to mean "years" it should have a tilde above the "n". As printed, it is an anatomical term.
