If you are enamored of 1911s, you could consider the Sig P938 for a small concealment pistol, because of its very similar manual of arms.

A question for those who recommended a Sig 1911, myself not being a 1911 buff: I have a vague memory of reading somewhere that some Sig 1911 internal parts are not interchangeable with other 1911s. True? And if so, how big an issue might this be?

Frankly, if you are really going to spend enough to buy something Dan Wesson 1911 priced, you owe it to yourself to make it a Dan Wesson. If CCW is really where this is leading, I think Dan Wesson, Sig, & Colt all make CCO style guns which, IMHO, is the best size for CCW.

If my 3.5" SA didn't shoot and run so well, I would be looking that way.

Avoid the MIMber or the mini Sigs. Many are fine, but a Dan Wesson could be a first last and only pistol!

There can be only one.....

The Browning Hi-Power Practical.

I've been carrying Hi-Powers since the 70s; never had one need service. Accurate, tough, and have served in most of the world's armies over the last 80 years.

21st birthday what handgun?

I've always wanted a 1911 .45. Did my research and settled on the Magnum Research Desert Eagle 1911 G. It has most of the features as the Kimber, but not the price tag. I get many comments on it at the range where I serve as RSO. My gunsmith is putting Meprolight tridium sights on it now!

I have a sig sauer p229 and it is fantastic. If you intend to carry though be warned the sigs are pretty fat guns and print pretty bad. You will want a good holster and belt if you intend to carry it. I don't have my ccw yet, but I have been experimenting with holsters, and actually hiding this thing is pretty hard.

Best of luck picking something out. There are a ton of great guns out there so take your time and try things out.
