The reason I've come up with to get a 9mm is common availability of ammo. In a TEOTWAWKI situation I could imagine eventually running low or running out of certain ammo calibers. It makes sense to have at least one 9mm in the collection. Because of the TEOTWAWKI and ammo availability scenario, I think a 9mm that can safely shoot reloads and lead bullets is important. Criiteria: -Full Size preferred (I carry a full size 1911 now) -Double Stack Hi Cap preferred (to take advantage of smaller cartridge) -No Polymers (Lead reloads eliminate the Glock) -New, used, or milsurp OK -Steel frame preferred, but could compromise with AL alloy if a better platform -$300-600 price range I'm thinking either a used Sig P226 or one of the CZ's. (And I know almost nothing about these two). Are there any other options? Any opinions? Thanks for your help.
