    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.

    You can never go wrong with a 1911...unless you get one in 40 S&W
