i'd remove the desert eagle from the mix. the rest are great. if you can get a hold of a colt gold cup lightly used for that price, it's a good choice as well. even cheaper, the sti spartan v would be worth looking into.
i have an xdm 45 full size. very nice gun.
fnp45 is also a good option.
both xdm and fnp45 are high capacity
Favorite range gun for the money - CZ 75B or STI Spartan V 9mm
Go-to carry setup - Walther PPS or PPQ in FIST kydex holster 1AK
Favorite semi-auto design - HK P7
