    I have not owned a .45 for many, many, many years. Considering clearing out the 9mm and going 45. Last time I had a 45 it felt like a 4 pound hunk of steel. With all of the polys out there I'd love to get a feel for what would be considered the BEST. With the cash from my 9s I could likely get a very nice firearm. So what is it. The one poly .45 you must have?

    Keep at least one 9mm and get a G21, 30 or 36

    The Glock 30 is my favorite .45 ACP pistol hands down. 10+1 capacity and semi compact. If you would rather have a full size, the Glock 21 is a fine choice too.

    I'd vote Glock 21 SF or Gen4. I love my Gen3 G21.

    I liked the feel of the S&W M&P45 and Beretta Px4 Storm 45, but I don't own either, just played with'em at the gun shop.

    My favorites in order, Glock 30, USP 45, HK45, Glock 21.
    I would really like to try an XD or XDm in .45 auto.

    Love, love, LOVE my FNP-45 Tactical. I can't compare it to others, since it's the only .45 I've owned.

    XD's are really nice, EAA's have a lot of kick. Kahr CW45 are not bad at $380 or so. These are the poly .45's I have owned.:wavey:

    Another vote for the XD45!

    Love mine, about 2K rounds so far, no issues at all.
    XD45 Tactical w/S&W Micro90 weaponlight. It's what is on my bedside table as I post:

    Glock 30 for me with some 21 mags.

    I cant justify the increase in size and weight going to the Glock 21 just for 3 more rounds...
