What's your favorite 45? and why?

There's a current thread running about your favorite 9mm.
Well what's your favorite 45?

I don't even have one (yet). Looking at the STI Spartan in 45.

So what's eveyone else like?

BTW, I didn't put what I would use it for as it doesn't matter. Curious as to what you have and why do you like it?
I have an STI Spartan, right now it is my favorite.
My ruger .45 is just as reliable, eats anything (more so than the STI) but is definately feels like a pistol that's a couple hundred bucks less.
AND.... the STI is quite a bit more accurate. I can make one ragged hole with the STI, the ruger won't do it. It still patterns fairly well, but the STI outshoots it by a good margin.
The springfield GI stainless I had was a jammo-matic, untill I finnaly got it tuned and running well, then sold it. And it was no match for the STI in accuracy, either.

SO.... STI Spartan is my favorite.
I have 2 favorites right now. My Para Warthog and my Ruger P345. The Para is a great carry piece and surprisingly accurate for the 3" barrel. The Ruger is accurate and reliable, but a little more bulky. So I guess that my Para would be my favorite, then. I think I will have a new favorite once I get my hands on the Ruger SR1911.

currently it's my new FNP45USG, digests everything, accurate, 15 round capacity, polymer frame. Prior to that was my EAA witness 45 fullsize, 10 round capacity, accurate, steel frame. Both are great guns, but, if you have little girlie hands don't bother. You have to have decent sized mitts for either of these.
