I need a good .45 pistol that doesn't cost a ton of money. Do I go with Sig or Glock or Taurus or Kimber or what? I want an accurate gun with a picatinny rail and/or nightsights. Hope you all can steer me the right way. Thanks for your help.

i would say sig... but then you said you didn't want to spend tons of money. how much are you looking to spend? I love sogs, but a p220 will probably run around $800 give or take a little. kimber makes good 1911's, but may be in the same price range. You can find an XD for around $550, that will be a great gun, and have a higher mag cap than the others cause its double stack.

Thanks...

I like the Kimber cause it's pretty but I also like the Sig. I guess I'll end up going for the XD because I can't afford $1200 for a frickin' gun! I hope the XD is an accurate gun.

Any new comments are appreciated.

i forgot you said nightsights. the XD won't come with those. you will have to add them on afterwards, so figure in another $60-$100. I like the trijicons... and yes, the XD will be accurate
