    S&W MP9, XD, XDM. 1911, sig 226... are you just looking for ideas to add to the collection or is it going to serve a purpose like SD/HD?

    Colt, Springfield, Remington, and Smith & Wesson,

    of course.

    Get Stainless Steel. You'll thank me later...

    well with that info. i would say it has to be either a .357, or a 1911.. remington, and Springfield armory make good entry level 1911's. ofcourse you can always go above entry level.. just go to see what you like.

    Ruger 1911 msrp for 700 i think. Imo it doesn't get better than ruger.

    http://www.ruger.com/products/sr1911/models.html
    I say 700$ because with most of their products i have seen in stores are 10-12% lower than online

    My point exactly. And ruger in my book is the best of the best. Ruger sr1911 its a reasonable price and just as functional as the 1000+ colts and sigs.

    that extra cash not spent can go to more ammo and extra mags maybe some nice grips

    If you use the shotgun for HD personally i would attach the butt. More stability, more accuracy, and from what people say shooting a pistol grip 12 is very uncomfortable.

    iv run probably 2000-3000 rounds through it like that only seems to be a problem after about 150 but i have kind of big hands and long arms so it kinda fits me perfect for waist fire... with as many rounds as iv fired through it i feel like i could hit the target first try... just has some mg 00 buck shot in it right now..

    Gp100 .357 mag, cant go wrong with that. Pretty cheap to shoot and cant go wrong with a Ruger.
