I love CZs. I think you'd fall in love with a full size 75.
On the other hand, if you don't have a 1911, a Remington is a great choice for a first one. A little more refined than the Phillipine guns (and they're great too, don't get me wrong) and in God's own caliber.
M&P45; nothing too exciting. Great gun, but still striker fired polymer and expensive to feed. I'd lean to one of the others.
The wife would prefer a lever rifle.
And the answer is: Rossi R92 357 lever rifle.
