Kimber or GLOCK

4991 Views 25 Replies 24 Participants Last post by  rayomefor45
I would like to purchase a firearm to carry concealed. My two favorites are the Kimber Ultra Carry in 40 S&W or the GLOCK in 357 SIG. I need pros and cons of each please.

Glocks are FAT and klunky. The trigger guard is as large as some compact semi-autos.

Glock trigger is mushy, squishy.

I like the ultra compacts in a 1911 for carry. It's possible to carry a full-size or even a "compact" gun concealed. But it's MUCH easier to carry an ultra compact.

The down side with the ultra compact is capacity. Springfield makes an ultra compact in high capacity (10 rd), The ParaOrd 10-45 is ultra compact and 10 rd too.

I have a ParaOrd. It's a fine gun for me. My other conceal carry guns are a Smith Mod. 60 in .357 and a Makarov. Full size 1911 for field carry.

357 SIG is an "odd" caliber. The ammo NEVER goes on sale and is expensive. You'd be better served with a 45 ACP, 40 S&W, or 9mm Parabellum/Luger -- in that order.

In a revolver, 357 mag is the only way to go.

What part of "shall not be infringed" needs 'splainin' ???
