Default Opinions wanted on new pistol to buy

Looking to buy a new pistols for a everything gun ( hunting and protection) I am a big fan the .40 cal round. i have had a couple of xd and xdm's and loved them but I'm a big fan of the external hammer pistols. Wanting to stay under the $1000 mark. Been looking at the 1911's but not a huge fan of the weight. To be able to carry hunting the barrel needs to be 4" or longer. Has anyone had any dealings with the H&k usp 40 or the FNH FNX-40? Any other options or opinions would be much appreciated.

I'm a 45 fan myself. The FNP45 is a sweet piece. I'm admittedly a fan of my 4.5" M&P though. Apex hard sear and spring kit made it a totally different gun. If you have a $1K budget though, why not look into a Sig P226? I've owned two of them and they were fantastic...only sold them because of caliber restrictions where I work. Lots and lots of options/configurations, huge aftermarket support, and they are stone reliable.

Oh, and 4.4" barrel.

Only reason I am thinking about the H&K or the FNH I because of there lighter weight while still having the external hammer. I like the sigs just not a big fan of the weight. I was just curious if either would be a better option then a xdm? I had a xdm 3.8 and a xd 4.25 and both were awesome guns just thought about trying something different

I have both the FN and the HK. The FN is a great gun, but the HK is my favorite of the two. It is a little more accurate and I prefer the controls. The HK will also eat any kind of ammo I can find were the FN can be a little more picky.
