    1911 for sure, I hear good things about the Dan Wessons. At that price point, you have a good bit of options though. Springfield offers some decent 1911s in that price range. You can surely get a very good STI at that price.

    I guess the real question is, what are you planning on doing with it? Home defense, target shooting, competition.

    The STI is going to be built for that type of activity specifically.
