    If you don't want to go the 1911 route then a Glock is probably going to be your best bet. You should be able to poke around and find a police trade at a pawn shop or somewhere for around $350 or less. Don't be shy of a police trade in, they don't get shot all that much. USPSA shooters routinely fire 40-50k through their Glocks with little maintenance. My wife shoots one in competition and she has at least a good 15k through hers, no problem.

    If you end up looking at a 1911, I would suggest staying with a .45 as .40 in a 1911 can be quite finicky. If you do go .40, be prepared to get some work done on it. Also if you go .40, take a look at STI, they make the best out of the box .40’s. Buy some 10mm singlestack mags and be ready to send it in to someone like Virgil Tripp to get it running.

    I have a 1911 with a .22 conversion, it works very well and is a lot of fun to shoot. It only takes a minute or so to convert. The conversion (Kimber) is very, very accurate out to 50 yards. I can routinely hit 4” plates at 50 yards with it.

    I'm with CC about Glock, don't really care for them. For me a revolver is the way to go for carry. Never have to worry about jams with a wheel gun. I like the 44 mag for knock down power but most of the time I carry a Ruger GP100 in 357. Have shot literally thousands of rounds through this pistol and it is still as solid as it was new!

    He wanted a .22 conversion. Kinda hard to do that with a centerfire revolver.

    Nothing wrong with a revolver except they are heavy and I don't like to carry them with a pack.

    I have shot a beretta a lot! Sold it, bought a glock and never looked back, I don't shoot as much as some guys on this thread, but I shoot a lot and I train a lot, beretta would be good to throw on your belt hunting I guess... I couldn't get used to the trigger on second shot, I prefer my trigger pull the same every time, I guess it is all personal preference. If you like the 92, check out the polymer brother, px4, probably a little lighter.

    I like a pistol with a hammer rather than a striker fired auto. If I want to use it for small game or other precision shooting the single action is easier for me to make a precise shot with than a long double action trigger pull. I can shoot a Beretta 92 or 1911 better than an XD or Glock, but that's just me personally. I have 2-2.5lb triggers on everything I shoot so that likely contributes to what works for me.

    Glocks are working guns. They aren't picky on ammo and set the standard for reliability. I have a G22 that has probably near (over?)20,000 rounds through it. Squeeze the trigger and it goes bang.

    Well said, that's exactly why I made the switch.
