I know this is probably post #174376284 on this subject, but I'd like a few opinions. It will be mainly used for the range/light defense. Would like a full size (not concealing, so don't need a compact). My brother has a 9mm Beretta and I like the feel of it, but would like something different so we have a little variety. I was leaning towards a 9mm due to ammo prices, but would really like a 1911 one of these days. How much more is .45 compared to 9mm? I've done some searches and seen prices all over the scale for both.
