    so looking at the results so far in the thread "Design the Perfect Handgun" by Spenser...

    and taking the most votes...

    SEEMS TO ME it is a:
    PARA-ORD- PXT LDA High Capacity Limited - Hi-Cap Limited .45

    LDA is not the same as DA/SA. LDA is DAO with a light pull.

    Heckler and Koch HK45. It came from H&K trying to design a 1911 but scrapping the idea because the company felt the production cost would be too much for an all steel 1911 from them so they took all the good ideas and design evolutions and put them into a new pistol design. I have one and I'm still in love with it...I choose it over my Sig, Kimber, or Colt any day....sorry for the blaspheme... But in all seriousness, it's an amazing gun in my opinion...check it out http://hk-usa.com/hk45_general.html when they say "no compromise" they mean it...

    It's unfortunate that colt decided a long time ago to discontinue their double eagle. Fortunately, I was able to acquire a lightweight officers acp (when it was still in production) and lately a stainless regular size (5" barrel). Both are sweet looking/shooting gun.

    FN also makes a DA/SA 45 in high cap. I waited almost a year for this one. All I can say is that it was worth the wait. I had posted several months ago on how this gun functioned. All I can say is, you won't be disappointed right out of the box. It's in the FN site if anyone wants to read it.
