I`m thinking about either a Para Companion C7.45 LDA or Glock 27. Personally what I don`t like about the Para is it`s SS. I`d have to get it blackened. What I like about it: Thumb safety,slim grip, nice trigger, and it`s .45 acp.
What I like about the Glock 27:
It`s easy to maintain.
ten round vs. 7
What I don`t like about the G27:
It`s a bit thick compared to a 1911.
No external safeties.

Price really isn`t a factor here. I`d appreciate any opinions. Thanx in advance. Bob

Get the Para. It's a blast to shoot. The chopped mini-Glocks are too thick and too short.

I also recommend the Para, especially if it will be a carry gun.

I just don't trust the Glock enough to carry as protection.

The combination of a light trigger, and no ext safety on the Glock is just asking for a problem.

I have heard of people shooting them selves in the leg or foot while trying to pull a Glock from a concealed holster.

I'd have to vote for the LDA. I've got a buddy that just bought one for CCW. He's been shooting a Government model colt for the last 23 years and said the transition was EASY.

Personnaly, I'd go with the Glock, and have to agree with Aimless in regard to drawing and mode of carry. However this question is like comparing apples to oranges, they are two totally different guns. As someone with formal training with revolvers, my main reason for the Glock seems to be Arbob's main reason to lean toward the Para (the external safety, I don't like them).

I'd go with the para, but I'd get the SiG 220 before I got either of those. The 220 has to be the most reliable, most accurate out-of-the-box 45 semi out there.

I personally don't care for the LDA's trigger pull. It feels mushy and weird to me.
I'd either get the Glock or buy a real single-action 1911.

I finall decided and bought the Para.Obviously a bit heavier than the Glock. The slide release is a bit stiff. It`s difflcult to depress. Some range use is obviously in order.

Is the slide stop hard to press with an empty mag in or without? If it is hard to press with an empty mag in, thats a good thing. It will help remind you if you are trying to drop the slide on an empty mag in a bad situation. It will smooth out a little after while though. The surfaces of the metal will mate and smooth out. Rnage use is a perfect remedy.
