For range use I would get a full size, i.e. 5 inch.
Look at these Colt, Springfield Armory, Ruger, Remington, Kimber at the $700 to $900 price point. I have an STI Spartan that fits in this category.
Check out Rock Island Armory, Citadel, American Tactical, High Standard at the $500 to $700 price point.
If you want to spend 1K plus, Colt, STI Trojan, Kimber and several more.
The way prices have been jumping lately,
,numbers subject to change.
