I haven't been on a bike since an inattentive driver crashed into me and my BMW R1200RS in March of 2017.

That said, I do still have my custom Motoport kevlar jacket, which unfortunately I was not...

Wilson Combat KZ-45.

Worst pistol I have ever owned, by far.

It would not go a single magazine without failures to feed. I tried different magazines, ammo, shooters, sent back to WC twice.

There are things I don't love about the Pro... for example, the sights are not ideal for me. I absolutely hate the look of a 3-hole trigger. I'd prefer a one-piece MSH/magwell, the S&A unit is...

HK45C, I carried mine for quite a while. Comfortable to shoot, and considering the size, it manages recoil very well and gets back on target quickly. Plus, it's an HK, so you don't have to wonder...

I don't carry DA/SA, I don't use them for home defense, so I have no reason to pick something practical.
