    Because you never carried before, you'll find that the wqeapon wears on you you if it's to heavy. As for a .45 a Glock 30sf could be perfect for you.

    Sadly, concealed carry is illegal here in every part of Canada . This will be a range toy!

    Like i said before, size and weight shouldn't be a concern because you won't be carrying it. .45 is a great round and you shouldn't be afraid of it. the round will be very manageable especially if you get a full size 1911. With that pice range I would look into a nice Kimber or a good Springfield and some good Wilson Combat mags, and as much ammo as you can buy. Remember an expensive gun is cool but not if you can't buy any ammo b/c the gun is too much.

    Here are two of my favs

    Thanks man, appreciate it. Springfield is at the top of my list at the moment. I've actually contacted a fellow who is selling one very similar to what you showed me used.

    I have to agree with everyone on the 1911. since it's just going to be a range gun and weight doesn't matter, it may as well be one designed by the best gun designer to have ever lived.

    Technecally thats not true. However the CFO's requirements for a concealed permet makes it nearly impossible to aquire one. In 2011 a total of 17 permets were issued in all of Canada.

    Just buy a glock. They're great first guns. Easy to disassemble, clean, and maintain. And will eat almost anything you feed it.
    A 1911 that works properly is just as rare as a glock that doesn't.

    Can't go wrong with a G17 or G19.

    .45 is my favorite also! I would stick with Springfield, Kimber, or S&W. I agree with Phillyr121 about starting out with a less expensive model. The initial investment is one thing, but all the accessories is another. Kimber makes the custom II model that is a great starter 1911. It has most of the upgrades that you would want and its well under a $1000.

    Beretta 92SF was my first gun. Shoots great, thousands of rounds and never a problem and is very accurate. I also like my Springfield 1911, but you know what they say about your first...
