Thats about the size of a Walther PPKS. I like it, but I've always wanted the 12 shot "officer" size in double stack .45.

Shoot one before you buy it. The super small frame only gives you a 3 finger grip. It's not something you want to put a couple hundred rounds through at a time when practicing. And with an aluminum frame, it is going to recoil like a mutha! The high-cap grip may make up for that, somewhat.

The Warthog doesn't have the LDA trigger system. That is an experience that must be had! I LOVE my Para C6.45 with the LDA!

Look at the Carry 12 if you want to get the LDA trigger system. You can also shop around for an older 10-45 or 12-45 LDA pistol.

Jack,

If you recall, You and Winn had to practically drag me out of the Para booth at the NRA convention.

The Warthog had me drooling, but as Rhino mentioned the LDA models are the balls.

If/when they make the MA roster ( I won't bore you with all the foolish details, but the MA AG has to approve pistols before we can buy them here in MA ) I will be the first guy in line to buy one.

BTT.

I bought me a warthog recently at the VA Beach gunshow.

...if you don't have an XBOX you probably won't get the chupathingy... check the 2nd episode of red vs. blue.

Anyway...

These are the older P10 model, reborn with new marketing. I have the "nite hawg" meaning it came w/ factory night sights. I could hit the 10 ring with my buddy's P10 a few years ago, and in my small hands it grips just right.

You know its funny, my buddy has been screaming for a P10 LDA (now warthog LDA) for years. When they started making the LDA line, he even phoned their main office and talked about it. He was told by PO at the time that they could not make the P10 sized frame LDA due to the fact that the P10 frame lacked the needed inertia that is required to properly cycle the LDA action. That sounds bogus to me... anyone else?

The P10/warthog isn't that much smaller than the P12. I've been wondering now about taking a P12 LDA, chopping the frame, and using a P10 slide and spring with it. What do you think, is this possible? Since there are many smaller-sized pistols with ported barrels, it seems that there would be enough impulse energy to cycle the action here. I just don't know for certain.

Any thoughts on this?

Firestorm is, I believe, the same as Llama. I was recently comparing the Llama minimax II sub compact with the warthog, they seem very simular, I am now in the market for a Llama. The one thing holding me back is that they don't have a ambi. safety, wich is important to me cause I need a offhand BUG. I would also like to have a matched set with a shoulder holster rig, quickest reload is a second gun!

I'll throw in my $.02. I carry the Taurus PT145. 11 Shot .45 very accurate. Manageable recoil, in fact great recoil, and It is an awesome weapon overall. All of my buddies now carry them. We took a course locally and our instructor was a Kimber man. He shoots matches nation wide and I offered for him to shoot mine. He loved it. Ordered himself one immediately and carries it now. His $1600.00 tricked out Kimber is collecting dust in his safe now. It feeds every ammo I have tried for it and is rated for +P. My chrono clocks my corbon +P's at 1200fps at the muzzle. I simply love it. Try one out. At $300 or so dollars you can own two or three for most others that are available. Just my $.02.
