South Georgia summers can be brutal, and carrying a heavy firearm in this heat and humidity doesn’t help. Before this summer even got warmed up, I decided I wanted a smaller, lighter carry gun for summer carry and for anytime around the house. I have always tried to remain a one caliber household, so I initially concentrated my search on .45ACP pistols.
I have never been a fan of Glock. Sorry Glock fans, they just don’t feel right in my hand, and I can’t shoot them as well as others. So, I steered away from them. The only other pistols readily available on the shelves in my area are Ruger, Springfield Armory, and Smith & Wesson. I got a few recommendations for Kahr pistols which I’d like to explore in the future, but I’m a touchy feely consumer. I have to lay my hands on some things before buying blindly. So, of those makers, the choices in .45ACP were slim.
