2nd CA357

The 1911 is IMHO the most shootable handgun design on the market. The XD .45 is a close second w/superior capacity and enhanced control w/large caliber ammo due to the reduced felt recoil inherent in polymer receivers.

But you are right that is the best way to find some thing you will like.
I agree! The only other down side of renting, is that it tends to be expensive, but that doesn't stop me .

Me neither. That is the one thing about the military that I miss the most. Going to the range when we had to burn up all the extra ammo we had.

Although there are a lot of great 45 calibre handguns out there.
I am, needless to say, still partial toward my Smith & Wesson 457.

PanBaccha, you don't back up your statement with any info. Inquiring minds want to know. Thanx, jd45

The Glock 21 if he has big enough hands for it.

I gotta give my vote to the XD45. I have one and I like it much better than my M&P 45. More capacity and better trigger. More compact and much easier to handle. The G21 would be nice if he has the mitts for it. As a small guy, I don't so I can't recommend it. Not sure if the XDm 45 is worth the extra $$$. I doubt a 1911 is in his future as a security guard but I could be wrong.

Well, I found out from his mother yesterday that what they bragged about offering prior to the interview turned out to be a lot less when it came to actually talking wages. Twelve dollars an hour vs $19-$22. I opined that I wouldn't put MY life on the line for that chump change. If this is the way it's gonna be, I suggested he look for another line of work. jd45

I'm new around here but for that kind of money you'd be driven into the poor house just buying your duty weapon. I'm a lover of the 1911 but also love Glocks. Have plenty of both and several Sig's also. I had a Sig P245 that I actually hated and darn near gave it away. I like the G36 for concealment but would not as a duty type weapon. I peronally carry a 5" Ed Brown Special Forces and they are superior 1911's IMHO. Pricey sure but they lock up like a bank vault and it loves 230gr +P Ranger SXT Winchester. I had a Kimber Tactical Ultra II and it was a great small 1911 that never gave me a lick of trouble in over 3,000 rounds. If I had to carry and they'd let me carry cocked and locked, like I do, I'd look into one of the Ruger or Remington 1911's that seem nice for reasonable money.
