Which size?

Ultra, pro or full size,,,,what do you prefer?
I have a Micro9, 2 Ultras and 2 Pro size. I think the Pro size is the least soldier , am I correct?

Pro for carry, full size for sexiness.

Ultra for conceal ability.

Custom for accuracy, hunting / target work.

Pro for all of the above.

I have all 3 size guns including smaller pocket guns and I think the Pro is the workhorse of the group. If I could only own one gun it would be difficult to chose between my Super Carry Pro and Classic Carry Pro.

I have all of the above in the house, but seem to always walk out the door with a Pro.

Wow, I'm shocked with so many Pro fans, that's great !
I prefer my Ultra Covert for ccw, have a Pro Raptor and Saphire. Would NEVER carry the Saphire, it's for the wife and she'll never shoot it. It's in 9mm but she prefers a .45.
My Pro Raptor is .45 but wouldn't carry it, I've got other .45's I ccw instead.

Love my PCII's and my ECCII, but for conceal carry it's my Raptor.

I always stick with full size or Commander size for 1911s for reliability.

Contrary to many people and the internet Ultra's are reliable also.

"Ultra's are unreliable" another internet fable, my EDC is an Ultra Tactical with close to 2,000 trouble free rounds through it.
