Get a Rock Island, can be had for around $400. I bought one, shot the crap out of it, handed it to my Dad few years back, and he's still running 100+ rounds a trip with it. My buddy bought one back 5-6 years ago, and its still shooting fine. You can also go with the Springfield GI model, be about $550. If you want to spend a little more coin and get the best customer service, then Springfield is the way to go. Not too sure on the Para Ordnance yet, I do have one that I got through the Army, double stack with all the works. Its impressive, but I haven't shot it much yet.
