I voted for the 1911 in 9mm just because it was on the list and a Browning Hi-Power was not. I also have many 1911's and more than a few Hi-Powers but I really have an affinity for DA revolvers. Have you thought about maybe a S&W N-Frame?..............perhaps a model 24 or 29. I do love those .44's and once you've shot .44 Special, you're hooked.
A man can never have too much red wine, too many books, or too much ammunition.
