Just wonder because I am researching for my next handgun purchase, which would be better? I haven't ever owned a .45 and have limited experience with them and not a great deal of experience with any handgun for that matter. My brother has a Mark III and I love the way it shoots and feels. I once had a S&W 410 but it was a disaster. It jammed a lot and shot inconsistantly to say the least. I figured since the round was .40 S&W that S&W would make a good gun to shoot it out of. I was really disappointed. I was reading up on the .45 in some of these forums and it seems that .45's have some problems with certain types of ammo and require some work to be made reliable? I don't want a gun that jams or one that has to be worked on a lot to be made accurate or reliable. A gun that will be good out of the box. Basically good price, accuracy, and reliability. I was thinking about either BHP pros or cons to either of those or Colt 4691, Springfield G.I. lightweight champ 4", or Charles Daly EMS 4". ANY SUGGESTIONS???
