Ok, new guy here looking for some guidance. I'll give you some basic background first. I currently shoot a Walther P22, Walther PPK 380 and a Colt Gov't 45 ACP. I should be picking up my new Colt Wiley Clapp Commander this week. I want one more gun, FOR NOW, to finish off my stable. I'd really like a 1911 in 9 mm. I had pretty much settled on eventually getting a Dan Wesson Guardian, but understand it may be a long, long time before I see one of those. I originally was leaning toward a Colt Defender to go with my other Colts. Now after some more research the STI Lawman sound nice too. I have not handled a Wesson or STI yet as they are rare around here. Do I patiently wait and order a Wesson whenever I can, or do I choose another?
