I'm looking into picking up a .45 and have been mulling over the options. Of course the FNX and FNS come to mind so that is one choice; the other is a good old fashion 1911. I've not shot either of the FN pistols but I did like the trigger feel when I was in the store. There is an FNX available right now for $699 with a fourth mag free with purchase.
lots of manufacturers to choose from in the 1911 category and a lot of different price points. The other option, and not too likely was the Sig Scorpion 4" barrel but it may be too pricey for me.
What do you think I should do?
