Thanks everyone!

EDIT: requirements are: "Series 70" safety, and the ability to feed hollowpoints. This gun would double as a plinking/range gun, and as a apartment-defense gun.
Within the price constraints you list, I would strongly suggest looking at a Rock Island Armory. This past Friday I saw several at the LGS for $419 plus tax. The tactical version was $459 plus tax. The tactical RIA in the LGS looked to be well worth the extra bit of money.
