What is "reasonably priced"?

$350.00 is reasonable for some, $2500.00 is reasonable for others.

I would recommend a Springfield Armory Range Officer. They finally offer one like I the one I had setup over 20 years ago.

Colt, Springfield Armory, Wilson Combat, Ruger, Remington, Kimber, Dan Wesson, ect., ect. there are many fine 1911's available. they can range in price as low as $600-700 for a decent basic 1911, to $1500 plus for an equipped high end one. your budget will be your major factor in the decision. i have one 1911 that i paid less tha $500 for and it shoots great, but i have one to pick up, that will have cost me over $1200. best advice, figure out how much you want to spend and then go handle as many as possible in your price range. if you find one that really fits your hand well, and it's a little over your budget, wait and save up the difference, because you will be happier in the end.

For carry?
A Commander size (4" +/-) or a CCO (Officer frame w/ commander slide).
Prices run the spectrum. A commander sized would be the easiest for price sensitive shoppers. Most makers offer a 4 ish" Commander style model. The CCO and similar tend to cost more. I have a DW CCO and it is a truely excellent shooter and conceals quite nicely.
I'd start looking at the SA Loaded Champions and maybe the Colt CCO & Commanders. The list of possibilities is long and extensive.

I think the Ruger is a good great deal, for a great price. Wish I could get one here in Kommiefornia T_T
