i recommend a supersoaker.
FN FNP-45 (Tactical or Standard Version)
Springfield Operator .45 (Green)
Springfield XD (Earth tone Black slide)
Beretta Px4 .45 or 9 (Maybe Earth tone)
M&P .45 (Earth tone Black slide)
Sig P220 (Earth Tone Black slide)
Generally you can't go wrong with a Sig Sauer.
Here is my Sig P220 (not in earth tone)
and my Sig P220 compact
The Sig P220 is a great gun.
One of my best shooters.
Anyways I will agree to disagree, there is some level of skill but to demonstrate my thinking two videos for you to watch
Collateral Tom Cruise training - YouTube (being skillful and badass in his training)
Tom Cruise being odd on Oprah - YouTube (wait no anybody can learn to do that after a couple weeks) jk lol
You gotta go with the 1911. Best pistol design ever (IMO). I have a Springer loaded model, and they are great guns. Most intuitive shooting automatic pistol I've ever shot. You already have two polymer pistols. Other than that the only one I can comment on is the XD. Great gun I've had one for 5 years and shot it quit a bit. So reliable it's almost boring. I can't shoot a Sig P220 worth a damn so I haven't bought one.
If it were me, I'd ditch that HK 9mm and get the 1911 and the XD, but that's your business. Good luck on getting a good price, and I doubt you'll be disappointed in any of the reputable .45's you are considering.
None of the above.
You my friend need a .22
The decision making process I use is like this:
1. Application. How do I intend to use the weapon. Deep concealment? Concealment on the ankle or in the pocket. Target. Home protection. Etc.
2. Suitable candidates. Make a list of those weapons that are suited to the task at hand.
3. Budgetary. How much am I willing to pay for the weapon.
4. Research on the suitable candidates that are within budget.
Without a decision on the application almost no suggestion can be well-considered. So how are you going to use the weapon?
I voted for the springfield operator, I think I would change the grips though
That sig p220 is very sweet, I already got the Beretta Px4 as my 3rd gun
There has been an occasion where I bought a gun for looks and pop culture references (HK USPc)
Beretta Px4 3rd gun, definitely not a pretty gun, accurate and reliable though
I recommend either purchasing from CZ custom shop (Ghost Products) and getting their $160 hammer/trigger job OR sending your gun to them for the trigger job or contact Stuart on the Czfirearms.us website for a hammer/trigger job. It will make it a competitive style trigger with no perceptable creep. You may want to ask them about a different spring as well.
It is a great gun to carry as well. If I had the decocker version, I would carry with a round in the chamber and decocked. If you are looking for a holster, the Springfield XD holster should work, or Sig compact holster. Check on czfirearms.us under the RAMI section for other suggestions on holsters.
Great choice...and enjoy and train a lot and be safe
