my opinion, 600-1200 is a huge price range. that pretty much makes any "performance" .45 attainable. definitely check out Springfield. they have everything from loaded 1911s to the extremely popular xd series. id check out the mil-spec. good baseline. tons of parts. but the 1911s are going to require some up keep definitely more of a tinker's gun. but if your just looking for a high capacity accurate range gun then the .45 xdm will be a great addition to your collection. then you can spend that dough you saved on ammo... cause lets not kid ourselves .45 aint cheap no more

when you rent ... make sure you try out a glock 20 or 29 in 10mm

10mm kicks the .45's door in throws it on the floor watches its foot ball game in its lazyboy and drinks its beer

I understand they are less now that the XDm's are out. If you need another safety on it, i understand there is a model in 45acp with a manual safety. It holds 13+1. Mine has yet to fail in any way.

Realize that 9mm is much cheaper to plink with.
I like the TT version w/ 5" barrel. On my to-buy list.

Has anyone said Smith M&P? I know I seem like the only one here who loves to rock one, but GOD DAM MAN!!! Its a great gun!! My favorite features are the interchangable backstraps for the grip, the lack of a safety, and the viewing port so you can see right down into the breech and visually inspect for a round without even having to rack anything!

Love my 92 but also have a Kimber Classic Gold Match. If you like to shoot more often get a Browning Buck Mark or a Ruger MKIII. A Wally World bulk pack of Federal 550 22 @ $18 vs $21 for 50 round box of 45ACP. A 9mm box of 50 is $11 @ Wally World.

If money is not a big problem and you want a "kick a$$ semiauto", maybe a Magnum Research Desert Eagle in .50 Action Express or .44 Magnum would be good. You'd be the center of attention at the range.

I made the suggestion on the M&P45 on my 1st post but it must have gotten lost in the shuffle! It has turned into one of my favorite guns to shoot and it now my daily carry .45 over my Glock 21 which is about as good of an endorsement for either gun as I can give. Mine even has the thumb safety ala the 1911 too.

I'm new with guns but have dived in head first. I now have my wife into shooting and last week she tried out a lot of guns and ended up,buying a M&P 9mm compact with Crimson Trace laser. I have little Glock27 but now like how the M&P fits my hand better. I also a, falling in live with the Beretta PX Storm that I've rented a few times.
