Since you specifically asked for opinions...

My feeling is that if you're going to get something in a 1911 platform, stick with .45ACP. Yes, several manufacturers have managed to make acceptable 1911-style guns in 9mm, .40S&W, .38 Super, etc., but a 1911-style gun that's not in .45ACP adds all sorts of complexities to part replacement and repair that takes away from one of the big advantages of the 1911: availability of replacement parts and accessories.

I wish I could afford to shoot .45ACP. Since I can't, I stuck with 9mm, and got a weapon that was designed for that caliber from the start (Ruger SR9...which in some ways, is 1911ish). While it is possible these days to get a decent, working 9mm 1911-style pistol, you've gotta deal with specialized mags, non-standard springs and other parts, and taking away the capacity advantage you would get in non-1911-style pistol for 9mm.

But that's just me. I'm sure others will come up with more compelling arguments for a 1911 in 9mm. I just felt like ranting after a rough day of holiday shopping. :)
