The Ed Brown with the installed optic.
I actually own a Glock 40 MOS with an RMR , a 7" KKM barrel and a Johnny Glock trigger. Just looking for something a little nicer.I have deep affection for my Nighthawk long slide 10mm, and I sold my Glock 40, which was a long slide 10mm. That said, were I to want one strictly for handgun hunting, I would have kept the Glock. Low maintenance, wouldn't care if it got scratched, dirty, or wet in the brush. One less thing to take up brain cycles that could be dedicated to the hunt.
Other than what looks like the frame what are the differences between the Bruin and the Kodiak?I think the Kodiak or Bruin from Dan Wesson would be my choice. Not that the NHC's, GI's EB's, etc. aren't great, but the DW options seem to offer quite a bit for the money.
