    You should check out heirloom precision if you want something REALLY nice.

    Want to be really cool?
    Uberti Schofield in 38 Special.
    The N frame size .38/357 loader does work on the 38caliber Uberti Schofield.
    One handed/thumb opening.
    Flip it over, move the barrel across your arm, shoulder, or tummy.
    Empties drop out.
    Place the upright gun under your off arm, pull the speedloader, insert, push the button, Move the barrel back across your arm or tummy to close.
    BAM! Back in business.

    Great triggers and easily doubles as a hammer.

    I recommend a STI 9mm single stack if you can find one. Doesn't break the bank. Great shooter. I had one but it was lost in a tragic boating accident.

    Just get one of the older production. STI had problems in the last five or so years before they quit making the 1911.

    My reasons to own 1911s
    1. Slim design
    2. Availability of holsters, magazines, springs, etc.
    3. Slim magazines
    4. Fairly easy to shoot well (subjective)
    5. Ergonomics
    6. Variety of effective chamberings
    There are some cons as well, but its usually a 1911 style pistol in 45 acp that I have with me.
