    Why would you only use a 3" if you knew the confrontation was going to be within 10 feet?
    My 3" Kimbers shoot just as well (if not better) than my 2 friends that shoot full size Kimber 1911's. They have even shot my 3” guns and agree that at distances out to 25 to 30 feet it shoots just as accurate as their full size models. I don't shoot IDPA, but I do shoot allot (more than 6,000 rounds a year). Carrying a full size (or even a 4" 1911) can sometimes be difficult. A 3" CDP is lightweight, easy to conceal and deadly accurate out to and beyond 25 feet.

    I finally went to the gun store a few days ago. And they had a Ultra CDP II that someone had only shot a few times for $899 and thats all it took. I'm in love! :smitten: I went into the range after finishing all the paperwork for a proper introduction and I have to say this gun is sweet. Natural pointer, and accurate, Oh Yeah! I fed her a hundred rounds, and she was beggin' for more. Of course I got her a couple of Wilson Combat Mag's. You don't want to use the factory ones.

    Oh boy, the gun store is a very dangerous place for my wallet to venture into. Because I could not get out of there without also getting an AR-15 from Bushmaster. And red dot sight, some mag's and..... Its dangerous allright, but I'm not complaining, not one bit! ;D

    Before I retired my off duty carry was a Colt New Agent .45 ACP, not a Kimber granted but a 3" 45 auto none the less. Great carry in that size IMHO. Now that I'm an old curmudgeon I've gone to a G43 and one reload.:smile_coffee:
