So, after about 3 months of owning my FN Herstal FNS-9 (a FANTASTIC pistol I have to say) I've come to the conclusion that, although a gun that carries 17 rounds of frangible 9mm is something to definitely keep around for the Zombie Apocalypse, it's time to retire this one from daily carry, and replace it with something a little more reasonable and easy to carry... in my case I've decided on the Springfield XDS-9. However, I do occasionally open carry, and I like to have at least one very serious .45 for this purpose. The decision to make right now is: 1) Exc Cond used Springfield 1911-TRP 2) Exc Cond used Sig Sauer P220 Elite Dark TB The advantages of the 1911 are that it's slightly slimmer, there is a proliference of available parts and accessories, and has the sweetest trigger in pistoldom. The disadvantage is that its 12 ounces heavier, almost an inch longer and holds one less round. The advantages of the Sig are that it's lighter, holds an extra round, simply cannot be made to malfunction in any way no matter what you do to it, and if you'll forgive me, just looks badazz. The disadvantages are that the first shot is DA and has a long trigger pull, is wider all around, even in SA the trigger, while very good, still cant match a 1911 (none can), and parts are slightly less available / affordable. Bearing in mind the intended purpose; regular carry with a nice SigTac paddle, which would you chose? Why?
