HK 45 or the HK 45c. Or anything HK for that matter.

Accept no other. Accept nothing less.

I was going to mention a potential increase in ammunition cost. I would also be curious as to the purpose of the pistol as for something carried all the time, smaller size and lower weight might be more important.

Also sometimes having guns in different calibers can be useful when there are shortages of ammunition.

My Hk Mark23 is the best polymer .45 ever made in my opinion.

There are other great options but my Mk23 is the one.

Well I don't think there's really a "best" out there, but my favorites are my 21 Gen 4, My Sig P250 Compact (yeah yeah yeah, it's been a great gun for me), and the 30.

Unless you plan on reloading, .45ACP ammo is going to run about 1/3 more than 9MM. I believe if you use a good self defense 9MM load you don't give up much for self defense if that is the original reason you want to change from a 9MM platform to a .45.

Based on my experience with my hand size the Glock 21 and FNP45 are to large for my hand let alone for conceal carry. The Glock 30 will work, but I think the M&P45 and the HK45 Compact are better. Try going to a well stock rental range where you can try various pistols to see what works best for you. Good luck.

Best for what? What you're going to use the pistol for will determine recommendations. For CCW, I would recommend a G30, a HK USPc, or a HK45c. I would recommend a G21 (of any variety), a HK USP, or HK45 for a full size gun for home defense, nightstand gun, or a range toy.

Yep, cheap stuff is about $20 bucks a box. That's why I handload, ammo prices don't bother me that much once I get a supply of brass on hand. I cast my own bullets too so primers and powder is all I'll have invested. That way I can load up a box of 45acp for about $3/50.
I've had my equipment long enough so that it's price isn't a factor in my reloading anymore.
I just need to find a good source for Once Fired 45acp brass. CenterFire Brass is out of stock at the moment but they did have it for $60/1K plus $11 bucks flat rate shipping so I'd be looking at $71 bucks for 1000 cases, not too bad.
One nice thing about a 45acp, if push comes to shove a good flat point cast lead bullet will still be somewhat effective.

Oh, and to answer the question, I'd figure if the PX4 Storm in 45 was anything like the 40cal that I had it'd be a good gun. My buddy John has an HK USP and he loves it but I think they look blocky. Glock 21SF is always a good way to go too if you don't mind a striker fired handgun. Of course you'd have to get a Lone Wolf drop in barrel if you'd want to shoot lead reloads.

Glock 30sf would be my first choice. The HK USP 45 Compact or HK 45C would be a close 2nd.

S&W makes a great polymer as well, but I prefer HK.
