This weekend I was in a store looking for a compact 1911 to carry. Now I love my pt1911, but it has a rail and is therefore not the easiest firearm to carry especially if I want to use a IWB holster. Anyway, i came upon a Kimber CPD pro ii for $1250. That gun just felt right in my hand. HOWEVER, the price just didnt feel right to the wallet. Also, again, the Taurus PT1911 is truly a quality firearm hands down. Not knocking Kimbers at all. They are really nice. But I think I am just going to get a duotone PT1911. Yes I have looked at the RIA Citadel, but I the PT1911 has spoiled me with all the custom features it has. I will say if Taurus ever came out with a compact 1911 I would be all over it. I think this is an untapped market I hope the enter and soon!!!!!
