    P220 is very nice as you've observed, and somewhat pricey although not as much as a really good 1911.

    The Glock 21 isn't bad and I actually prefer it over the 220 from a practicality standpoint.

    The Heckler & Koch USP and USP-C are both fine handguns as well. I had a USP45 and a USP40 at one time and the 45 was a dream to shoot.

    Rugers add for the P345 implies that they're better than the 1911 :hsugh:

    Glock 21 or if you want something a little more compact, a Glock 30

    p220 can be had for $599. if you go to www.sigforum.com you can ask around and someone can refer you to the shop that sells it at that price.

    definitely. The local cops carry 21's, and they can't stop raving about them. A friend of mine has the 30, and it's a nice carry weapon.

    I am looking for an accurate target gun. I do not need anything compact and cant carry in IL. I already have a ruger mk II and xd9 so now I am looking for something a bit bigger.

    Glock 21. Easy to clean and maintain, reliable, and has 13rd mags.

    Capacity on the Sig sucks.

    the XD will be a .45Gap

    CZ makes a great .45 with a model just for competition shooting that has been doing real well on the circuits.

    Another vote for the Sig P220. :bigthumb: I love mine. Very comfortable and hella accurate. If you concerned about price check out a Sig Certified Pre-Owned. They're used, but have been completely worked over by Sig Armourers.
