If you have deep pockets, take a look at a Dan Wesson Commander Bobtail 1911. They run around $1,100. I had one until financial crunch time hit. It's chock full of Ed Brown parts and it's manufactured in the good ol' USA.
An eight round mag and one in the tube gives you nine rounds of .45ACP, a very potent deterrent.
Of course, any 1911 gives you that capacity.
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen. ― Samuel Adams
