Sigs also a decent brand.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Not sure why I'm stuck on warranties, but maybe cuz I've had to use them before...

If you buy new, most companies have a pretty good warranty, but if you're going to buy used only a few companies cover used guns. Springfield and STI come to mind as the most obvious. Colt and Kimber, for example, cover only the original purchaser.

You really should decide on particular features you want and then go looking for the gun that fits the bill.

A warranty on a gun is like the gun itself, its better to have it and not need it, then need it and not have it

Colt 1911, not a dishwasher. Been around 100 years +. No computer chips, and no carburetor.
Damn the warranty. Full speed ahead.
