    You might also look at the CZ 97.

    SIG 220. It seems to me that those who want a 45 in something other than a 1911 all have 220s. Not sure why. I know the poly guys make guns in 45. Maybe it's the best non-1911 option for a guy that does not want a polymer frame. Lots of options for you.

    I looked at the specs of several high-cap, double stack .45 pistols, including Glocks, XDs, M&Ps, etc. I was not able to find anything that beat Glock for size/weight/capacity.

    Went to the local fun store, and did a side-by-side comparison of the Glock 30, 36, and my 19. Their overall sizes were very close. The 36 was slightly thinner than the 19, which was itself slightly thinner than the 30. I was surprised to feel little difference between the 36 and 30 in my hand. I then asked my wife (5'2" tall with small hands) to handle the 30 - no problem reaching the trigger for her.

    Given the 10+1 capacity of the 30 (and the ability to use G21 mags) vs only 6+1 in the 36, it was an easy choice for me. I ordered up a G30 - should be in any day now.

    Once I get it to the range, I'll eventually add a CT laser grip, and a set of Tru-Glo TFO sights to it.

    I'd at least suggest you give them a look.

    You did not mention mags or mag changes in your wish list so did you rule out the revolvers? The H&K USP 45 in nice for an auto loader kinda pricey. For low budget the Gen 3 G-30. But I don't know about the G-30 in competitions. Maybe be too small grip and barrel, The H&K USP or the FNP 45 are kinda large for conceal. So you will have to make a compromise.

The G30 is the most controllable .45 I've ever shot, oddly enough. Conceals very well, ridiculously reliable, it's as accurate as you are. Glock suggests you don't shoot lead bullets, but with a good cleaning that would be fine. Or buy a separate barrel.

    fnp 45 , sig sa/da
    xdm45, glock, striker

    depends on if you want a sa/da or striker fired type. I am also thiking of getting another 45. The PPQ is looking like the next gun for me. I wish they made the PPQ in a 45.
    Be careful what you wish for. You just might get it ......
