Want a nice range gun. Different directions to go... Les Baer Premier II http://www.lesbaer.com/duty.html (or other Les Baer) SIG 226 X5 Tactical http://www.sigarms.com/Products/ShowCatalogProductDetails.aspx?categoryid=38&productid=144 My current gun is a HK P2000SK 9mm I use for carry. It would be nice to own a nice 1911. The 226 X5 Tactical is in 9mm which is what I have and I had a P229 and like the quality of SIG if ya get a good example. The LB PII and 226 X5 Tac are the same price, just under $1400. I have smallish hands- so the 1911 would be a better grip, but the 226 isn't bad. Hmmmm.... What say you folks?
