What's the smallest .45 you own that has worked reliably for you? I find myself carrying my Kahr stainless MK9 instead of my .40 cal Glock 27 because the slimmer profile of the Kahr wins me over. Both are 100% reliable. But, for the extra stopping power of a .45 I can settle for a bigger framed gun. EDIT; I just can't understand why NONE of the the big players would offer a 2 finger grip C&S style 1911 like THIS for under $3,300!! I don't think it would take a marketing genious to recognize a consumer demand for it.
