9mm? Do you all mind if I endorse the Browning Hi-Power?

I'll kick in a STI vote. I have a Spartan in .45 but it is available in 9mm. My .45 is incredible.

I have considered the DW Guardian as well and decided on the STI Lawman 4.0 in 9mm. Of course it has been on order for about 4.5 months now....and I work at the LGS that ordered it. Goes for about $100 less that the Guardian at $1455 MSRP. Looks like this.

And to those that suggested some nice reasonably priced guns I say this! Why you wanna kill my dream??? Just kidding. Mrs Cardiac thanks you.
IIRC, Para does offer a single stack 1911 as well.

Yes, a Browning is a good counter-offer to a 1911 and you would have a double stack magazine to boot.

New Brownings seem to be as rare as hens teeth these days, but my LGS ordered one for me a few years ago and it was in in less than a week....don't know how that would be now

Funny! I was killing some time between appointments today, and a store in SC had 2 nice looking, used Hi Powers. I think they were asking around $950 for them. I picked up my newest best friend today so I'll have to start a new savings fund to pay for the 9mm. If I had the cash today I'd still lean STI or Dan Wesson, but I really want to fondle everything I can over the next few months.

Here's my acquisition. Now I need a name for him.

It's already going to get a little tense, no sense adding to my pain!

I like the finger marks on the grips. If they were a little different, you could call it "the shocker".

Wife might not like that name either, though.
