Try different Guns & Calibers
I would recommend a 1911 as it is entirely different than the one you already own. It functions differently and I think it is good to have experience on all kinds of firearms!

As far as cost the .45 is more expensive but not a lot if you reload. I can reload .45 for approx $1/50 rounds more. If you shoot factory ammo it is approx $4/50 more.
I do agree that practice practice practice is the key as an earlier post said. I always stay in practice with all my weapons!
What ever you decide be safe and have fun!
