I'm considering getting a handgun (probably wont be for some time though) and I think what I'd like is some sort of 1911 in .45 ACP. However, as I look around I find that the Springfield XD's in that same caliber are much less expensive (almost half) and generally have a larger magazine capacity. What are your thoughts on a comparison between these two pistols? I know that the 1911 is all steel (which I consider a plus) and there are several other differences, but I just thought I'd ask those who know the most.
Knowing is half the battle...
Of course, the other half is violence.
