    Comments from anyone who owns and operates a TP45 would be very much appreciated. Bud's $430 price tag is hard to ignore.
    1. Any holster recommendations?
    2. Any trouble concealing that long grip?
    3. Any reliability issues?
    4. Comments both pro and con?
    Thanks, JW:patriot:

    You would have the option to shorten the grip if it proves to be too long. There are several threads here about this.

    Anyone know of a link to directions on shortening the TP45 grip?

    Follow TMann's directions here but use a P45 mag (6-rd) as the post-cut length... P9 Covert Modification

    As for holsters, you will find that 'bikini-cut' (aka JIT slides, etc.) leather holsters for the 1911 will work just fine. Good luck!

    OK, I have a TP9 not a 45 and it has a 8 round mag.
    I don't understand the threads about shortening the grip.
    I have no trouble carrying the TP8 with 8 rounds. With a Hogue Handall Jr. grip it's about perfect to shoot and to carry. Come on, an inch or so in length will not make a difference in carry but a huge difference in firing grip.

    Works great. About 300 rnds nothing at all. I use CrossBreed for

    IWB and as posted JIT for OWB. A little large for my small hands,

    but I have a P45 and a PM 45, so I am covered. Recoil mild.

    Good luck

    How is the felt recoil on the TP45? Im thinking its not a gun you want to put 50/100 rounds through at a time! Is there a difference in felt recoil before and then after the cut job on the grip?

    I find the TP45 recoil to be quite light, follow up shots are also quick and quite easy.
    The TP45 is a SLEEPER.:thumbsup:

    I have/had TP 45, P 45, PM 45. TP shoots great. Low recoil. Handles

    easily. P 45 not bad. PM 45 fun to shoot. I would not cut it off, unless

    you were keeping it forever. My friend did all kinds of cuts on guns

    and told people they were custom. They bought it, but they were

    newbies. 8th
