    Nothing wrong with the Kel-Tec P-11 IMO, small, plenty of rounds and good warranty too

    Is this a BUG ?

    Out of those two choices, I'd recommend the Taurus PT111.

    Much "MUCH"better on the $wallet$ too.

    My own recommendation for a Sub-Compact would be the

    XD SC .40 - $400 to $585











    You can Google XD Subcompact and find lots os sellers.

    My mom chose this gun a while back. It's very nice, has a real good weight for a Sub-Compact and I love the Springfield XD Features and ergonomics anyway.

    i do like the xd in the olive drab color , anything reliable and small under 500 bones would be great. and this seems to fit the bill{no pun intended}

    When it comes to the very piece of hardware that will possibly stand between life and death for you, what it costs is not the first thing on my list. I'll agree that when you're on a very tight budget, "A gun" is better than "NO gun," but if you can afford it, why short-change yourself? My life is worth more than the "lowest bidder."

    I have carried the P245, which is essentially the older version of the P220 Compact, but without the beavertail. Extremely accurate and easy to carry/conceal weapon, especially IWB (I used a Kramer #1-1/2). You will find that the single-stack .45's will be much more comfortable to carry on a regular basis than the double-stack ones (like the Taurus). Another couple of single stack .45s you may wish toadd to your list are the Kahr P45 and GLOCK 36. These are single stack polymer-framed guns and are very light and thin (you will carry it more if it's not a burden on your belt).

    From your two options, however, I'd say go SIG.

    Well, you're comparing apples and pears, (most) P220's are .45ACP vs. the PT111 9mm.
    The Taurus PT145 is very similar to the PT111 but is a .45.

    I have a 3rd generation PT145, it is very nice although I have heard that earlier revisions of this model had various problems. Right now I'm craving a p220, if I had a P220, I probably would not be craving a Taurus, but it really is a pretty nice little gun.

    The Taurus is smaller, lighter, and 1/3 the cost, but has many fewer choices for holsters, sights, magazines, and other support gear. Not all that surprising given that the 220 has been around for almost 40 years, the MilPro only about five.
