OK, I have $1600 to spend. Already decided on a XDm9 with laserlyte rear sight for my home defense gun (it fits my wife's hand well and the laser should help the fact that she can't hit _____). Plus, I trust XD's more than just about anything based on one I had in the past. I can get this set-up new in box for $630. That leaves me $970 for a gun that I can have fun at the range, and carry comfortably bowhunting (meaning I nead to be able to climb in/out of treestands, and have good range of motion). Thinking the best round for this would probably be .45acp, and, as much as I love 1911's, I want a dual action trigger because I would be able to get a shot off quicker in the event that I need to defend myself from a bear or cat. I have considered the HK USP full size, the Sig P220, the Tangfolio Witness, the XD45, and the Para P-14 LDA. Could use some input from the "Experts."
