So, if the 1911 is the .45 gun of choice (not to everyone but for this post you know what I mean) and will be known for the .45 gun for ever and ever. Then what is the equivalent for 9mm??? I'm kind of deciding what to get for my next $500-1000 dollar investment in a gun and want to take my time deciding as I buy a gun to keep basically forever. I could see buying a 1911 but like the idea of cheaper ammo and still want to investigate the 9mm avenue. I already have a glock 23 (.40 S&w) and do not want another glock. Its a great gun so far (500 rounds deep so far) but I want something different to play with than an identical gun in another caliber. So anyone feel free to let me know what you think?
