    For everyday carry I carry a Kel-tec P3AT in a slip case in my back pocket.

    That being said... I, in the past, was not a fan of Glock. I'm a gunsmith and work on a variety of hand guns. I began to notice that Glock's were the only guns that only come in for upgrades. I have made repairs on the M&Ps and of course 1911 style pistols but I have never had to make a repair on a glock. That got me thinking.... I ran across a deal on a Glock 23c that was an officer's service weapon so I bought it. The cool thing is that for about $40 you can make it not shoot like a Glock anymore. An extended mag & slide release, helped handling. A 3.5 lbs disconnector and a new spring set took some travel out of the trigger. A little polishing and I have a glock that shoots more like a single action pistol. Don't get me wrong, you still know it's a stiker fired gun but for a small amount of $$$ it can be made to shoot way better.

    I would recommend everyone read Mas Ayoob's article in this months American Handgunner if they are considering using a modified handgun for self-defense. The other big no-no is using handloads.

    Our stores are full of ammo again and prices are reasonable sorta. I plan to spend plenty time on the range since this will be my first auto and while confident in my skilz with firearms, I have a lot to learn about these pistols.

    I dont think I could reliably shoot a .45,,, I am a bit limp wristed!
    When I bought my Ruger SR 1911 .45 ACP a few years back ammo was scarce ... but plenty today on the shelves. It is a big gun, but the weight makes it easy to do well shooting.. The fit and finish on the Ruger 1911's is remarkable for a gun made in the USA with all American parts.

    Ruger also employs a man who made some great training videos...
