My bear/woods gun. Springfield V16 LongSlide in 45 Super. Kicks like a 9mm hits like a 41 Mag
Most any brand as long as it's 1911 style. Looks like you did just that. Congrats.
I assume you want this primarily for self defense. Since it sounds like you are new to this so I would recommend going with a full size self loader in 1911 or a Glock 21' (SF). Get some training and experience before going to compacts or sub-compacts and make sure the handgun reasonably fits you hands.There are other decent pistols out there but these two are what I have settled on. Also you'll want to get a good belt, holster, a couple of magazine carriers, several spare magazines, lots of ammo and some training. If you think you want a revolver there are some in .45ac but I am not up to date on those.
There is more to being a good pistolero than just shooting. With training you should learn how to do malfunction clearances, the different reloads and various other things.
Good Luck on your endeavor.
Nothing Fancy just a great Shooter
You can never go wrong with a 1911...unless you get one in 40 S&W
