HK is a great firearm but IMO they are just too much money compared to what others in the same market can do for half the price.
no Taurus and no ruger (nothing really wrong with either but if $1,000 was my budget, id dream bigger)
1911's i would highly recommend would be the STI Trojan over all the rest at 1k, Second would be a Springfield Range Officer. Those 2 are phenomenal values for sub 1k. Then after that there are quite a few very good ones around 700-800 bucks being the Ruger 1911 (all American), Springfield Loaded model, S&W E-Series, and the Colt Gold Cup and the Colt Rail Gun being a few examples.
Polymer guns i highly recommend the FN-FNX, S&W M&P, Glocks (especially the 19 which i feel is their best all around model), Springfield XDm, and a great CCW polymer is the Walther PPS
Metal non 1911's- One of if not the best is the SIG P220... it truly is an amazing and dependable firearm. CZ makes a few great ones too, the CZ-75 is a fantastic firearm too. the High Power is a classic and you also can't go wrong with the SIG P229 as well as the SIG P226.
Ive own just about every one i listed except the Range Officer and S&W E-Series 1911... shot them many times but don't own them yet... one day.
