Right out of the gate I'm going to go in a slightly different direction;
1911 9mm.

Through the years I have owned several 1911's in .45 caliber, even when ammo was available I felt it was too expensive compared to 9mm. When ammo becomes readily available again 9mm will be less than .45 like it used to be, that is unless you reload. I would encourage you to look at Rock Island, specifically the Tactical version. Right out of the box it's a very nice pistol and for the money very hard to beat.

I realize there are purists that will say the 1911 should only be a .45 and I respect that, but for me a 9mm is just fine. Hope that helps and encourages thought. Good Luck.

By the way, if you are absolutely wanting a .45 look into the Ruger SR1911 - one of the nicest 1911's in the price point you're wanting to be in.
