A 20-something-ounce .45ACP pistol should kick like a mule. It shouldn’t be accurate either. You have to give up something to get something. Our subject here is a pistol that holds the 7 + 1 capacity of the original 1911 pistol at a fraction of the weight, while being smaller and still being capable of gunfight accuracy. That’s the Kahr TP45.
If you can only carry a semi-auto that holds 10 rounds or less, do you want a smaller caliber gun or would you prefer the .45ACP? A .45 that doesn’t fit your hand because it’s too big or that you won’t wear because it’s heavy and hard to hide will do you no good.
