Curious to know what others think as for me: In the home I chose a commander length 1911 in .45ACP. for the following reasons: 1. Night sites. 2, big bullet. 3. low muzzle flash 4. Won't blow out my eardrums Concealed carry, Here's where I get a bit fickle based on climate. 1. Commander length 1911 in .45ACP. for all reasons listed above. 2.Commander length 1911 in 38 Super because it comes close to .357Mag. 3. Colt Cobra for hot weather prefer 38 special over 9mm punybellum. 4. Sig P365 also for hot weather. 5. Colt pocket lite .380ACP for really hot weather. Woods carry: 1. S&W 625 .45Colt pre-lock mountain gun. 2. S&W 629 .44Mag. pre-lock 6" barrel. That's my choices, what's yours?
