Hard to beat a G21. For price, mag cap and accuracy! M&P are nice but figure another $100 for apex trigger parts, and that it still wont get you a Glock trigger reset.
The G30 is just an awesome handgun for size and accuracy price.
HKs are sweet but high cost factor.
Sig P220 is a sweet shooter, very accurate but high cost again and DA/SA configuration!

I saw a thread on the XDs. I know it smaller. What about that one? It seems nice in the thread.

Go HK or go home.


If a all metal gun is more to your liking, go with a Sig or a high end 1911.

Save all the toy guns on the market for the kiddies that like to play and pretend.

You have my total admiration. The HK45 or HK45c is the pistol to own in this caliber. Bill

My favorite full frame .45 is an FNX .45 Tactical. It is pricey but awesome. 15+1 capacity is nice too. The gun is light and not over sized even with its mag capacity. It is a fantastic fighting gun... and it looks cool as hell.

I did not hear one squeal out of him about how superior 1911s are ever since.

Send him over to my place to try one of our Kimbers or the Springfield Trophy Match, well get him back on the right 1911 path.

All tricked out Kimbers jam again and again at the range. 1911 worship is a mental illness.

Let’s see how many 1911 worshipers will climb the fence with foaming mouth on this one!


Gun is based on 1905 design in different caliber. There are only so many nitros and spoilers you can put on model-T of handguns before you realize it is still a Model –T and you cannot drive it on the freeway.

Colts, Remington Rand, Singer and a host of other ancient guns had carried America through two major World Wars with climate conditions ranging from the desert to the tropical jungle to the alpine slopes.

What have your cheap ass plastic guns been subjected to?

The Mauser rifle is an even older design and people are still building guns based on it. The Smith and Wesson revolver hasn't significantly changed, just had some nitro and spoilers put on it and people still use them

My Kimber and my wife's run fine as does the Springfield. We even have a Taurus that it defying some predictions and running fine.

I also have "modern" polymers .45s but that doesn't mean I have some insecurity and need to bash what came before and spew outrageous BS statements.

This is the same dude that lambasted another poster for arming his wife with a .22LR pistol while he officiously proclaimed that he cared so much for his wife and that's why he armed his wife with the massively powerful .380 pistol.

You can figure out how much his spewage is really worth.

I purchased the G36 on a whim, and it has become my favorite CCW pistol. Cheers.

I've only shot one GLOCK in 45, the G21SF Gen 3, and it was a great firearm. Felt natural, shot better with it than my own G27. If I ever get in to reloading (45 factory ammo is right now a bit expensive) I'd buy one in a heartbeat.
