I will eater go with a 1911 or xdm .45 as my next gun. It will most likely be the xdm. 1911 is my favorite gun but I won't the xdm for the 13+1. And in my eyes the xdm is the best polymer guns out there. And posable the most accurate .45 out there.

The Glock 21 and 36 are both EXTREMELY good .45 pistols.

XD, Ruger, and S&W M&P make good .45's too

1911's are great, but are heavy with low capacity.
I am new to semi auto pistols. I have had quite a few revolvers. I really don't have a budget because I believe you get what u pay for

as good as H&K firearms are, i would still choose the Colt 1911, just because of it's history and following it has.

hands down 1911,, I think the H&K is the only pistol I have ever sold and never looked back, and I have quite a few.

i wouldn't rule out some of the other 45 semis on the market though, XDM 45c is one of my favorite 45s.
