    My wife has agreed to give me $250 towards a new pistol for my b-day in October. The additional money will likely come from selling my little used Ruger MKIII. It will be used on the range, occasional carry, and possibly for some IPSC matches. There are two that I'm looking at, both are approx $450-$500.

    The two that I'm looking at are a Charles Daly Hi-Power in 9mm, and am Armscor 1911A1 in double stack 9mm. I'm not sure who makes the Charles Daly models these days, but I do know that Armscor is the same company that makes Rock Island Armory 1911s.

    What's everyone's opinion on which to get?

    Neither. Save up for a Sig or Hk.

    A Hi-Power and 1911 are both higher on my want list than a Sig or HK

    Hi-Power first. You can get the 1911 bug later. Be practical before getting the King of Battle weapons or whatever nonsense they advertise.

    Why would you ever get the 1911 in anything other than .45?

    Because.

    Get the Hi-Power. CDNN still has some of the FN .40s for $400, I think. At that price, you can grab a 9mm conversion barrel if you want and shoot the hottest 9mm loads around.

    I'm trying to consolidate calibers. I love the feel of a 1911, ut don't want to go to a .45. I have 5 calibers that I have to keep on hand already. The .45 that I used to have would break my bank over a 250 or 300 round weekend.
