    Hey all,

    Lets say for some strange reason you just couldn't carry a 1911. You still wanted to carry a 45acp though.
    What pistol would you choose and why?

    I think I would pick a SIG P220. Not one of the new ones, but one of the old ones without the light rail and made in W. Germany like the 2 that I had years ago before SIG was a GIANT.
    My 2nd choice would likely be a Glock 30. Then it might be an HK45 Compact.

    What would your top 3 picks be?

    Thanks and have a good weekend.

    I carry an HK USP 45 and a Glock 41 on a pretty regular basis. My normal backup gun is a Glock 36. I also carry one of a few different Beretta 92 series pistols.

    I don't carry a .45 at all, job falls to my Agency Arms 919, or CZ 83.

    For me, if I could not carry a 1911, it would be either a CZ or M&P 9 2.0

    I’d carry a 1911.

    Nobody gets to tell me I can’t.

    Years ago I had a Sig P220 DAO. I guess if I couldn't carry whatever 1911 I wanted that old Sig would get the nod.

    My German P220 or HK USP Compact. Probably like the USP more because I can carry cocked & locked and SA trigger is 4#'s. Yea, it would be the USP.
