Just picked up a second hand slim hawg. Really liked the fit in my hand. Knew I needed something small for carry, and the Kimber sis ultra and I just weren't good friends. Then start seeing all the discussions on para failures, slides, extractors, etc. I typically chalk most complaints up simply to people like to complain. But, I am still in a debate between the Para, or a Kahr mk.40. I like sticking with .45. And I learned a long time ago with the Kahr mk9, that they are really no fun to shoot. Now, I know, bringing this up before I have taken the Para to the range is silly, but since I have to work tonight, was just looking for opinions.
