Springfield XDS or Springfield RO 1911 in 45acp
My EDC is a 9mm Sig P320 X-Compact--not my first choice for EDC, but it's reliable and fits my hand well (at least with a third-party pinky extension on the magazine.) I would've chosen a more expensive "better" pistol, but I read an interesting piece of advice about EDC pistols--buy one that you won't cry over losing because if for whatever reason the police take it away, you're not going to get it back in the same condition it was in before it was confiscated...if you get it back at all. (...and for perfectionists like myself, additional scratches, dents, and other damage can quickly turn a treasured item into an unwanted one.)
Welcome to the forum guys! Post and enjoy, lots of good people here!XDS in 45 ACP. Stealth Gear holster and spare mag carrier.
Grew up with the 45 and it it is hard to change.
However I would sure like to give the Hellcat RDP a test run.
Got one myself in FDE tan. Mine has thumb safety though ( I’m a bit old school).My earlier response to this thread simply stated .40 S&W, which does answer the OP's question directly. The more expanded answer is that for the last couple of years, I have carried the Smith & Wesson M&P40 m2.0 compact as my primary EDC, and I love it. I realize that this is a Springfield Armory-centric site, and will redeem my response by stating that I also own a custom SA 1911 and the XMm Elite 5.25 that I use for local competitions, and I love those too.
