For a big all steel gun in .45 you can't beat a 1911. Lots of folks make them and prices in the lower 48 are anywhere from $400 - $2500.

There's nothing wrong with polymer pistols. It's up to what you want. There's also a video of a Beretta doing a kB! also on youtube, and they are pretty much metal all over.

Go to this site. It will give you a snap shot of the recalls from the different firearms manufacturers out there. The problems from the recalls are probably fixed and do not provide a good, accurate picture of the current guns reliability, but it does provide some insight into a gun companys quality control and engineering.

Maybe that will provide you a starting point.

I have also seen Kel Tec P3AT's blow up... on +P ammo.

I'd advise you to go to a local range where you can rent some handguns. Hold them, shoot them, inspect them and then go home to sleep on it.

Then do some research on the internet and make your own decision. For once I agree with SGT-MILLER, we can't make that decision for you.

However since you asked for our input, I would look at a Baby Eagle aka Jericho 941. Fine weapon.

Yes, a fine weapon AND a CZ KNOCK-OFF. You may as well get the "real thing".

I can't really jump on this one... as I have more brands of handguns than most people have ever heard of.

To be honest I actually like the Baby Eagle better.

It fits better in my hand, the trigger is effortless, smooth finish and I actually believe it is a better made gun. Those Israelis sure know how to make fine weapons.

NO bitching about that... For being such a small counrty, they sure know how to make fantastic weapons! Not only are they well made, Israelis have the best weapons designers on Earth.

thanks for all these good Q's everyone. very appreciated.

my choice has been made. i made a deposit on a glock 22 yesturday...as i heard only good things about this bad boy(excepting the hexagonal barrel and sensitivity to unjacketed ammo) i cant go wrong with that one. i asked for a C model , will see if it's available.

for the .45, for sure, i'll go with that ruger P90 full frame, stainless-alloy. i want a full metal one, and as SGT MILLER suggested, it is maybe a safe choice to pick that one (made proudly by true americans,wich doesn't hurt héhé) for this particular caliber, and unlike the glock(wich is pretty ugly imo) , this ruger is very nice specialy in stainless-alloy livery (cant wait héhé).

now there's only that damn 9mm left........i lean toward an H&K, but it would be only because of the hype around that brand, but i'm still not sure about the brand i'll pick for that particular caliber. i know the 9mm is probably the best caliber for target shooting, but everyone + my grandmother has one,so, i'd like to get something very nice and special....as in canada we can only get 10 rounds mags...

...if anyone has a cool suggestion, i would be more than happy to get advice from you, numerous pros on this forum....

...i'm very proud to be a member of this forum , i love it, and i will proudly post pics of my little collection as soon as i can.

I bought a Glock 23 first but if I had known then what I know know I would have got the 19 first. I like the way it shoots better for me anyway.
