So, I blew 80 bucks at the range today in search of what will soon be my first handgun purchase. I had a certain "wow, thats awesome" moment when I tried out my first Colt 1911 today. I also tried out the Glock 21 with about 20 rounds left, and I thought it was nice as well (but no 1911). Did god make a 1911? My main question is this. I have about four choices for my first handgun. This will prob be my only handgun for now, so out of the following four, which would you recommend for a first / only handgun for target and possible CCW? Glock G19 Glock G23 Glock G21 (why don't they make a compact .45?) 1911 (Something in the price range of the glocks) Any help / insight appreciated. I shot them all pretty well.
