I am looking to buy two new pistols. One in 9mm and one in 45 to round out my collection. I want one full size and one compact/sub compact. Right now the leading combo is looking like a kahr cw45 and a full sized m&p 9. Anyone have a combo I should look at instead? I would like to buy american and still get the beat bang for my buck. Thanks and best regards

That's a bit later down the road... Right now I am trying to have reliable weapons for home/self defense and a range gun.

I think you'll be happy w/ the S&W M&P 9mm

as for the .45 ... typically you'd go for a 1911, but as for finding it made in America, and on a ~$450 budget, I don't think you're going to find one other than the Kahr. I could be wrong of course, but nothing is coming to mind

My first. 45 was a Remington r1 for $650. Is say go one pistol at a time and really enjoy them. And my vote is still for the custom 1911. You'll love it more than any other pistol probably

Shoot, if you can make those two fit inside $900 then go for it.
At my lgs kahr is 379 m&p is 500. I know after tax and background checks I am over but I can justify that to the wife pretty easy I just can be over 900 before hand.

You can find an M&P for cheaper than $500
Hell I can't find one even for 500

I want to shop wherever you shop

Taurus makes a decent 1911 , I picked up a remington and the taurus the other day and the remmy had a little more play in the slide , same with the barrel bushing , and the remmy was $175 more and was just blued the Taurus was stainless .
Ruger makes the SR45 that gun felt best in my hands of every gun I picked up and got a feel for the other day
