      Best .45ACP handgun for less than $1400?

      Got the itch for another .45ACP handgun. Currently have two:

      Sig Sauer P220
      Kimber Pro Raptor II

      Most likely looking for a full size as it would be a house gun and range gun with possible carry while in the field while hunting. I own Glocks in other calibers. Also own an STI Trojan in 9mm.

      1911? If so, which one? STI Lawman? SA TRP? STI Trojan?
      HK45?
      Glock 21SF?
      Others?

      Since you already have a 1911, I would vote for something a bit different. Since you will be using it for house defense, then I would vote for the H&K. Otherwise, a basic blued Colt 1911 would be hard to beat....

      If your budget is that high, and you want a full size... get a Dan Wesson Valor.

      Try these on for size. A CZ97 or a Witness. They are almost the same guns though the Witness is Italian, Tanfoglio, or maybe a Turkish Zigana.

      Maybe look at a hooked up SA Operator.....or another of their high end 1911's. They are badass guns. If not.....the H&K is nice. Even though you have one.....maybe a decked out P220 with all the bells and whistles.

      Why not a Kimber Custom...and then you modify it to suit your wants and needs? I have 2 of the Custom's here...one box stock ( wife's gun) that I put their 22 rimfire kit on...the other "my gun" thats been modified to suit what I wanted and needed. I could buy one and replace every part in it...including the barrel and still end up less that $1400.??
