I've been mulling another purchase but like ice cream there's so much to choose from. The perfect gun is hard to find.

That's why you buy enough to have all the perfect parts spread out amongst them.

Kimber is nice but expensive. I'm sure I could find a feature or two I didn't like...maybe not I've never tried one

Sigs look nice but bulky...never tried one of those either

Glock...got one things I like things I don't

Ruger....things I like...things I don't.

There's gonna be stuff in any especially the lower end price point stuff.

I like a good wheel gun double action please...but again bulky for CC.

Beretta. S&W Kal-tech so much to choose from

My little Beretta Px4 storm was inexpensive but very reliable. Great little gun.

Mag release and saftey on the right side?

Does California make you have key locks?

Not sure about the keylock thing. But mine is in a finger push lock vault. Door springs open in a about a second or 2.

And I'm left handed.

There's a California compliant rule. This pistol itself must be able to be locked with some kind of internal mechanism. It's usually on the back of the grip and has some stupid key. I have a little Taurus 22 pocket pistol that has it. I just keep it open I don't want to have to look for the stupid key

Actually that may only be part of it supposedly California compliant pistols have to have a micro imprinting firing pin that leaves a unique micro imprint on each shell casing unique to each individual gun. According to my research these guns are hard to find......I guess and expensive to make too. Having to laser engrave the firing pin down to a microscopic level.....what BS. I'm sure they care about that on south Crenshaw

Between this and the emissions crap I would not want to live there I don't care how much money you can make. Had to be a cool place once upon a time but nobody remembers when cause they ferked it up bad

If I was going to buy another 1911, Kimber wouldn't be on the short list, or the medium list or the long list.
