Looking fo ra semi auto

What would be a decent gun in the 4-$700 range? I'm looking for a 45. Just going to mess around with it at the range.
Thanks

Steve

Glock 21. I've had one for years and love it.



Why .45 for a range toy? Ammo is nearly double for 45 over a 9mm. and .22LR you can shoot all day long for a fraction of that even.

I've always wanted a 45, I doubt I'll be shooting it a ton so ammo isn't an issue. I'll have to look at a Glock

Yes,
I own 357 mag and a 22cal revolvers and used to own a 9mm. Not super accurate, but am well versed in handling a handgun.

Cool.


There are some decent 1911s out there in your price range, too. Its a classic .45 platform, fun to shoot and tinker with. I picked up a pre-Series II Kimber Classic for $400 a few years back. Nice gun and a tack-driver.
