I don't like 40sw at all so 45 would be my choice. Besides nothing beats the 1911 platform, not even a nice Beretta 96.

Sig 1911 for sure. I've owned a handful of .40s over the years and every one has been sold or traded on something in a different caliber.

30 years ago, in Iowa, you could only conceal carry the gun listed on your license. I asked them to squeeze two on mine, which they begrudgingly did.

I would have to go with the 45 ACP 1911. It is the guiding light of handguns!!

Get a SIG P226 in 9MM. The gun and caliber by which all handguns are judged, worldwide.
