So i sold my Shield 40 a little while back to help pay for a new truck i didn't want to finance. I've scraped up some cash and i'm ready to replace it. I had originally planned on just getting another shield 40 but i started looking askance at some other pistols and the Kahr CM45 caught my eye. So now i'm kinda getting ideas. I want an auto, either dao or striker fired, in 40sw or 45acp. I wouldn't want to go much bigger than a shield/nano. I do lots of hiking in the summer and i'm often running around in shorts and a teeshirt. I had a SR40C that i absolutely loved but i left it at home too often when doing outdoor activities. smith & wesson m&p shield 40sw 19oz 6.1"L 4.6"H 0.95"W 6+1 & 7+1 kahr cm45 45acp 19.3oz 5.79"L 4.49"H 1.1"W 5+1 (6 rd mags avail, poss takes some 1911 mags?) I really liked the Shield. It fit my hand well and recoil was very manageable for the "snappy 40". All reports on the CM45 suggest the same, it's surprisingly mild recoiling for a sub-compact 45. Any comments on these two? Any others i should be considering? I oogled over the Taurus pt-145 and 24/7 g2 45 compact a bit before i realized they were DA/SA pistols. I just don't shoot single action as well as dao or glock type triggers.
