Default 45 with a decocker

I love my Sig P226. The decocker feature is great. Looking to get a 45 soon and Sig and H&K have models with a decocker. Thoughts?

Also consider the FN FNP/FNX 45, excellent pistols that are fully ambi and hold 15+1 rounds.

The FNP45 is an excellent gun at it's price point. They come in several variations though, so make sure you get the one that has the functional decocker if that's what you're looking for.

If you like your P226 and want to stay with a metal framed gun, the P220 is always an option - and an excellent one at that - but you'll be reduced to 1911 capacity with one. Not that I mind since I carry a Sig 1911 on my hip at work every day.

I personally don't care for HK's. Not because they aren't good guns, but because they are rediculously expensive for what you get, and trying to fix one when they break (and eventually they will - all guns do) is an expensive PITA because HK restricts parts availability so much. YMMV though.

Since you have a 226, I would stick with the 220 for my 45. Same manual of arms makes things easier.

Ruger made a P90 or P97 in .45 available with the decocker feature. Suppose to be a nice shooting gun. If it's anything like my P85, it points naturally. Should be able to find a pre loved one at a decent price.

It's the P95DC, great gun. Big, but great and can be had at a steal of a price.

According to the Wiki article the P95 is a 9mm. Very similar to my P85. They also made a p345. It's a single stack mag so it's thinner and also available with a decocker safety. It's model number is KP345DPR.

I like my Beretta PX4 storm a lot. Mine is a .40, but I've shot a buddy's storm in .45 and it was just about identical, except for less capacity and a touch more recoil.

I usually carry a beretta 8040 cougar, which is now made by Stoeger. If they're making it in .45, it could be worth consideration.
