Well summer is around the corner and I have an itch for another carry gun. I've been carrying a G19 a couple years but now I've decided I want something a little smaller. I know I could go with a a G43, but I think I want something similar to a 1911 style gun (Kimber Solo,Micro) Caliber is not really a concern. So what are some of your opinions or options out there.

Haven't been very impressed with the small kimbers. Very picky on ammo and still not 100% reliable at least the two I've owned neither lasted very long.

I'd suggest taking a look at what Kahr has to offer.

Sig Sauer P238 is basically a mini 1911 in .380.

Probably a 938. If going very small then the 238 or the Kahr.

I found this article about stopping power to be interesting. As with all "studies" read it and make your own call about how accurate you think it is.

When I don't carry my Glocks, I carry a small PM40. It will fit anywhere and I can carry it with gym shorts and a T shirt.

My dad bought my mom a Glock 43 for Easter, and I put about 150 rounds through it yesterday. I don't like glocks, but I was thoroughly impressed by this piece. I was able to shoot 2" groups at 10 yards, something I am not able to do with a ruger lcp or sig p238. Haven't tried their 9mm equivalents fhough. But after shooting moms, I will be purchasing my first glock.

I think I've gone through at least 8 different carry guns over the years. Never tried a 1911 style because there are typically heavier and have more snag-able features.

I finally ended up with a G43 and can't really see myself changing from this. Only way I see myself ever going away from the G43 is if Glock comes out with a newer/improved model.

Glock 43. Love it. Accurate. Reliable. When summertime hit's, then I'll switch over to my Kahr CW380.

I was surprised at how accurate a 10 ounce pistol is.
