I'm having a hard choice on picking which one of these to purchase for a daily carry. I have many good thoughts on the .40 M&P as I used that during my employment working Homeland Security Heartland Contract as a Federal Protections Officer. But that option for .45 is there too. I've also had the love for the 1911, but I'm thinking the M&P 40/45 would be a much more friendly daily carry pistol. I need some opinions as I cannot make up my mind with these options. Primary reason for pick S&W is the pricing up here is extremely reasonable. Don't feel like spending over a grand for just one pistol. I even considered taking out for a H&K Mark 23, but just too much money for a daily carry pistol.
