    I've been down this same road and carry an HK45c LEM. Quite simply the most reliable and softest shooting .45 pistol I've ever owned.

    Of the three you mention it would be Glock, FN then Smith.

    Couldn't agree more, almost 9mm soft, not quite, but much softer than any other 45 I've handled and softer to me than most 40's. Mine is V1 DA/SA. First day at the range, tore the 10 ring out of the silhouette at 7yds with a few scattered around it from the DA. The SA is money. I've heard fantastic things about the light LEM. Might have to do a conversion one day.

    I agree great gun! I have the bi-tone myself. Also if your looking for a bigger gun the XDm 4.5 or 5.25 .45 would be a great option.

    It looks like you might be leaning towards a method of carry that wouldn't involve a safety, yes? So if you did go for the FNP 45 you'd be using the decocking feature of the safety lever and going with the DA first pull? That'll be different from the Glock, for sure. Have you shot any of these? That could really help you narrow it down.

    Just an aside, I carry exactly the gun jaynole has. I carry it cocked and locked (as you could the FN, I believe) and it is sweet. But so are lots of guns, and the HKs are pricey.

    Best wishes!
