      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.

      An older Sig(milled), yes. The newer "bent rail" pieces of crap are horrible. Saved 'em some money, but it's destroying their brand, imo.

      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)

      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.

      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?

      Hey! That was going to be my recommendation! Thief.

      I chose the Operator. Least ugly. Fact.

      My decision making process:

      1. Which ones are ugly? Eliminated.
      2. Which one is prettiest? Check. Done.

      @Dondavis3

      That sig p220 is very sweet, I already got the Beretta Px4 as my 3rd gun

      @Holly

      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

      On that basis, I like the CZ Rami. Nice lines, nice metal work (all metal). It only needs some fancy grips to make it look like a collectable.

      This is a great choice...I own a RAMI as well...the RAMI P.
      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
