If you are partial to 1911-style pistols, check out Para-Ordnance.

I have a hand-built Para in .45 ACP that is reliable and accurate. The all-steel frame is heavy with a full mag, it isn't terribly concealable, and it isn't for those with small hands. That said, for a double-stack .45 in a SHTF pistol, its worth consideration. Mine is almost 25 years old, but here is the 2013 version:

YMMV.

CZ-75BD

I love my CZ-75BD. 16+1, all steel, reliable as hell, and feels the best out of all my handguns in my hand.

CZ75B-

HI Ya, I have a CZ75B-SA, I am not sure if you would appreciate the Single Action trigger but it is my most accurate 9mm.
I like the XD9 also but the CZ has my vote for accuracy, feel, and stuff. Try it you will thank me.

Para-Ordnance P14.45.

Hi-Power is a close second, but I don't care for the magazine safety "feature."

Beretta 92FS - I love mine.
BHP - I would love one if I could get my mitts on one.
Those two are classics. Beautiful both aesthetically and functionally.

Not sure what you have in mind to spend, but the folks at STI make the finest hi-cap 1911s available. Originally designed in full size for competition shooters they now have a line of double stack 1911s (they refer to them as 2011s) in a variety of sizes and calibers. Watch any IPSC/USPSA match and you'll see quite a few STI pistols or custom race guns built on their platform. I have several and have never found anything that I like as much as my STI Edge.

I'm quite fond of my CZ 97b. The M&P 45 would be interesting.

An old school 9mm P226. P229s are supposed to be "compact", but I like one of those in .40 or .357.

By and far my favorite is my CZ-75B. Mine is a plain version and I love it, but you can find decocker versions and Sao. It's the most accurate and comfortable pistol I own. The only issue you might have would be finding one. Czcustom.com is a great resource for moat things CZ.


Edit: The CZ-75B is also available in .40.

CZ 75 SP-01 Tactical. Of course I have nothing to compare it to because it is my only full size nine. I sure like it though.
