SIG SAUER 250
I have to go with some of these other guys....for a .45,the Cz designed frame in a Witness or IMI/IWI Baby Desert Eagle is pretty darn comfortable and is as solid as a tank.
Of the guns listed I would chooes the Ruger, but I'm waiting for the reviews of the Sig 250. I personally have a Witness P Compact .45. Grip was a little thin so I made 1/4" thick mahogany panels to attach and now it fits quite well and looks good too! No malfunctions and the CZ design is infallable.
Don't knock florida1098 for preferring Glock. He never said it was best for everyone, just that it is what he prefers and what he will buy.
The only service pistols I'll carry are also Glocks, because in my opinion they are the best design on the current market. I acknowledge that there are many other good guns on the market, but I will only buy Glocks (in service-type pistols).
And CZs are hardly infallible. My experience is that they are very reliable pistols, but not quite as reliable as Glock.
I picked ruger simply because everything they make seems to be tougher than woodpeckers lips.
I haven't actually shot any of those listed and couldn't make an educated vote. Watching this thread though I think will be interesting
I have an XD-40 but I have resently purchased 2 1911's a friend of mine got the XD-45 compact and I am giving some thought to selling the 40 to pick up a compact 45... its a great gun
I HAVE A HK USP. I LOVE SHOOTING THIS THING. ITS A BIT LARGE AND A DRESS AROUND GUN BUT GOD DOES IT SHOOT.
I WOULD LIKE TO SHOOT A G21 WITH A GRIP REDUCTION FROM ROBAR OR AZ RESPONSE. THE 21SF IS STILL TO BIG FOR MY STUBBY FINGERS.

BTW: The Sig P226 comes in 9mm, .40SW, and .357SIG
Sig has 3 handguns avaliable in .45acp that are not 1911's. The p220 series, p245, and p250. I would have to say I would take a CZ97b over anything on the list but since it wasn't included I'll have to go with the HK (I am just not a fan of striker fire actions).
Showing my ignorance here about actions..
Those Sigs have hammers, does that not make them a non-striker fired pistol?? I thought striker-fired guns were hammer-less such as Glock, XD, SR9, M&P etc. ??
I shot a Glock 36 the other day and was highly impressed. Only downside was small capacity at 6+1.
