Welcome to the forum, we have an area "Introductions"

Now back to your question:
Range, Self-Defense, Target, Competition, Display?

What is the firearm to be used for? Like vehicles have 4 tires, some are designed for off-road, others for luxury.

Please be more specific.

I think it's more about manufacturer's quality. I like Colts, but my personal favorite is Springfield Armory. The pricey guns I've seen is more about the look and not so much on the shot. You'll pay more for a kimber, but a Colt or Springfield Armory would shoot on par or emphases on better with reliability and dependability. Colt and Springfield Armory have been around for over 100 years for a reason and they are reasonable on price.

Colts are the best, cause my Colt have never had not one issue, and they are all stock except grips. It feels good when you're at the range with a basic Colt gov cleaning the middle of the target, and you see the guy next to you unjamming his kimber. It really bad when the guy with the kimber asks to barrow your Glock so he can shoot too.

If we're recommending SA; we should caveat that with older, American-made SA. The new stuff is not the same.

I'll second Colt. I will admit I have recently starting to look more and more at STI.

No recommendations, just my preference. I have 2 SAs and like them both. Never shot a STI, but friends recommend them a lot to me.
