Just dreaming here, and playing the game of the ultimate carry pistol within NYS' insane new laws, what do you think of the Kimber compact. Any other compact 1911's I should compare it too? Anyone have one? Know of comparison pics to a Glock 36? Or next to a 26? I'm not buying anytime soon, just always figuring in my head that next gun The compact has a 1/2" shorter grip, takes a 7 round mag, and has a 4" barrel. Also aluminum frame. Currently in 1911, I have a full size aluminum Taurus 1911 rail (I carry a 26), and the wife has an EMP 9. For deer hunting backup, would the Kimber or a Glock 36 typically handle hotter loads safely, or no difference between them? On paper I like the idea of the compact size, definitely the 7-round mags, and the 4" barrel seems a better idea than 3" for velocity, quieter, less recoil, better sight radius, and probably still carries ok ___________ I joined the NRA, have you yet?
