Taurus .45 acp

My brother carry a Taurus .45 for his conceal weapon license. It got lifetime warranty (he said) and it very accurated for the money.For the stopping power to me i carry H&K .45 ,save money and invest on something that you comfortable with and other life depend on you.

I carry the Springfeild XD .45 and it is a great handgun. It has a 13+1 capacity, and is accurate as any other .45 I have shot. The wife even shot the gun and fell in love with it. I only paid 550 for the new gun, 2 Mags, holster, and a two mag holster. My only complaint are the holsers were kind of on the cheese side. Oh yeah it came with a gun lock that I ended up using for a lock on an outdoor shed.

If you're rich, get a Glock. if you're poor, get a job and a Glock. I'm starting to come around to the idea of an XD, but I won't be selling my Glocks off just yet. 1911s are great guns if you enjoy visiting your gunsmith.
