With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

I say, get what fits you, is comfortable, and you can hit well with.
I have two CC weapons. One for my "Winter carry" (Sig p220), and one for "Summer carry" (glock 26).

Kahr P9 Covert or the Kahr P40. I carried that when I delivered pizza for an un-named popular pizza joint... Us drivers used to get robbed a lot (not me - hehehe)

I carried the Sig Sauer P229 when I was in Iraq.... Loved it!!

I have a Taurus PT145 Mil. Compact .45 Feels good, low recoil and fits nicely in my conceal carry! I shoot about 100 rounds every 6 weeks or so at the range and has not failed me yet.

I had heard the same thing but I must say I have not had a single jam on this one so far and I have shot about 1000 rounds through it.

Hmmm really? I argued to my friends that a gun will jam if it isn't clean (like USMC clean) but they showed me when we went to the range with the Kahr .45 compact. I was rather suprised. I think the Taurus has a larger frame than the Kahr.

It is a bit larger I would say frame wise. I am meticulous about keeping it clean as well. Swabbing at the range before I leave and then a full clean that day when I get home. There have been a few times I have slacked on the cleaning but I try to keep it in tip top shape. The Taurus is almost a replica of the S&W compact but squared off across the top of the barrel and has active safety. For the money it was a better choice I thought.

Here is my listing: Taurus .45, Kimber .45, a S&W .45 Magnum, an AR-15, a Mossberg 500, and a Kahr P9 Covert....

In Iraq, I carried a shortie M4 Carbine (reg M4 that we "unofficially" modified with Bushmaster 10'' Upper Receiver and bolt), a MP5, and a Sig 9mm.

I was a Marine before - but I went to Iraq as a civilian... Everyone always asked me - "Why do you clean your weapon so often?"

To which my reply was: "I was a Marine - a clean weapon is a weapon that fires when I need it to... that and I am bored".
