American Pistol Compact 45 ACP

Recently picked up a Ruger APC 45 ACP. At the range I pounded 200 rounds thru it, 100 FMJ + 100 assorted hollow points from Remington, Federal, Hornady, Speer. The ACP ate'em all up and never skipped a beat, not ONE malfunction. Combat accuracy was fine with the pistol shooting point of aim / point of impact with every trigger squeeze. The steel Novak sights were easy to pick up on double-taps. Trigger was good for a striker fired pistol. The audible tactical reset was short and from there the squeeze was soft. The overall trigger pull seemed to soften toward the end of the 200 rounds. Considering the price point this is a helluva good compact 45 ACP well suited for ccw. I liked it enough I went back and bought another one.

Finally picked up (today) Remora RFT IWB/Pocket Holsters for my twin APC 45s. I like the Remora system for ccw because it's not dependent on a clip or loop so I can "sweet spot" it exactly where I'm comfortable, and also I can switch from IWB to Pocket and vice versa anytime.

The more I shoot these 45s, the more I like them.
