I have made a habit over the years of collecting non-1911 .45 pistols.

The 4516 was my CCW for many years. It is the perfect pistol if all you are worried about is reliable function. I have never managed to have a malfunction with it through thousands of rounds. You can even pull off the "feeds empties" trick with it if you are so inclined.

Once I got the P245, I couldn't believe how little it weighed compared to the 3rd Gen boat anchor, which got retired. This was my first SIG and really jump-started my interest in the classic pistol line.

The CZ-97B is a first-year model (Serial #A23XX) that originally came in blue. I had Mahovsky Metalife applied to it when the bluing started to show its age. It is an absolute pussy-cat at the range due to its weight. Those grips have a prominent swelling at the base that helps lock in your grip.

I got the P9S in trade for a S&W 4536 (the compact version of their SIG P220-esque model) just because I liked the way it looked. It is ridiculously easy to shoot well due to the way is sits down in your hand and a very light single-action trigger. I don't shoot it much because it is somewhat fragile and the magazines are unbelievably scarce. I actually picked up a couple of spares from Tom Mayo (yes, THAT Tom Mayo) when he moved on to another pistol.



With all of that as prelude, my choice for a non-1911 today would probably be something from the P220/227 family. I particularly like the P220 SAS Gen2 Carry.

I had some trouble with the DA/SA mechanism of SIG's when I first started with them, then migrated to XD's, HK's, and finally 1911's, for a number of years. I just recently returned to the SIG family for a .45, with the Stainless Elite P220, and have finally mastered "trigger prep". So I would have to say a P220, bar none, for a carry .45. At last week's match, I actually made a cloverleaf, or "triple", for a "three shots on target @20 yards", which included the first round DA pull. The other two targets, all SA, were not quite as good. Smile

It's hard to pick just one, so.... HK45, P220, USP45

Other than the 1911? I would say CZ97 and HK45.

I would like to say HK Mk23, but I have never shot one in real life....only in video games.

My Glock 21. If I were an LEO allowed to pick my sidearm, it would be my choice for sure.
