Thanks

I'd look at the ruger, Springfield, kimber, or sig in that price range.

Probably not be new but beats a rock island or something. I've had a rock island and it did everything as it was intended to but wasn't the best gun. Nothing wrong with them but I wouldn't take that over a better gun.

Surprised about the Kimber love on here. My BIL has one from about 1999 and it's a great gun but I hear a lot of people bash them. Personally I'd have no problem with one but I think the Springfield might be a better value in comparable trim.
