    Nice pistol.

    How do you like the bushing-less barrel? I've never had one of those, but I've never had one shorter than Commander-size either.

    I like it a lot. Visually, its pretty cool and makes a .45 barrel look like .75 haha. It shoots very well too. And even with the full length guide rod, take down is simple without a silly tool. I was hesitant to go with the 4" barrel instead of the 5", but I'm very glad I did.

    I have a S&W with a 4.25" barrel but the conventional bushing. It shoots well and has never given me the problems that some people complain about with the ultra-short 3" barrels.

    Very nice! Stainless and cocobolo is an awesome combo. I don't think I'd go any shorter than a 4.25" or 4" 1911 myself.

    I have heard that the Daltech Force Bull Hide belt is good. I thought $50 is where they were priced. Anybody worn them?

    I have 2. Glock 27 with Bladetech IWB or FOBUS paddle with a 5 degree cant. Various loads-current is Hornady critical defense.

    Or when I'm not really carrying, I have a Beretta Bobcat in a pocket holder. Surprisingly accurate for such a short barrel and it only eats CCI mini-mags well.

    I believe these are on sale at Cabelas now. Also I think you can get the factory rebate which includes a bag and extra magazines until June 30

    I have a XD mod2 subcompact in 9mm and my wife has a S&W shield.

    Here is a few pics side by side. Shield is a little thinner.

    My wife uses Can Can concealment and Dean Adams products and carries all the time.
