The .45 is subsonic. It is slower.

depends on your needs and what your decent price is. Not many bad pistols makers out there today. All can let a turd of a handgun slip thru too. Try to shoot aven pistol you get a chance too and see what you can rent with in your 45 acp caliber . Some gun range will let you shoot any pistol they have available to help with short'n down your list.

Any pistol is as accurate as the shooter. The calibers and loads make the bullet drop more or less. Other than a bullet knows one thing... Bang and go straight. A certain gun with triggers or barrel types may make the shooter less or more accurate but the bullet has nothing to do with it.

If your worried about capacity this horse is 15 + 1. Not for small hands though.

I saw a "Glock" 9mm today with a 50 round mag!! Fueling it!! Pretty wild but great for the range!! And pretty much anything else but conceal! Good luck trying to pull that off!! The gun was 600,000 pennies and the mag was another 200k!! 800 bucks and your HD problems would forever vanish!! I almost bought it!! But I didn't think a local war was going to break out anytime soon-

Best for what? Carry, target shooting, hunting, competition, busting beer bottles, home defense, taking to war?

You want an auto or a revolver?

Double action, single action or striker fired?

What do you consider a decent price? A decent price for a hand fitted gun milled from forged steel may be a lot different in price range than a gun made of cast parts and mass produced, ore even one with molded polymer frames.

We talking .45 ACP, .45 ACP, .45 GAP, .455 Webley, .454 Casul? Lots of gun have the bore diameter (caliber), but run very different cartridges.

Need more info.

You should check out "professional Russian" on youtube. He has a lot of awesome vids. One with a full auto glock 18 and a 100 rd drum.

If I can't carry it I really don't want it these days!! I have a little something in the safe for any unwanted company!! But my little sub 9 is like my wallet, if it isn't on me it's near me-

I am very fond of my XD45 tactical/geezer-barreled in OD green. It has never malfunctioned. It seems as accurate as any of my other pistols (a function of my lack of practice). It was about $570 a few years ago, probably a bit less nowadays.
