Is there a price point? Because I have a Colt New Agent .45 that I love, but it's on the higher end as far as price.

I snagged a used shield for cheap the other day and liked it a lot. Shot perfect first time I took it out.

I feel like the Springfield XD with the Gear Up promo is the best deal going for a quality carry piece. Polished internals, fiber optic front sights, you end up with 6 mags (two 6 rnd and four 7 rnd), a 2 mag holster, and an OWB holster. I got an XD9 a few months ago and it carries and shoots nice.

"Polished internals" doesn't mean a ton when it comes to modern tupperware. Most of them have 30ish parts total, including the magazine parts. The trigger is a transfer bar that moves a shelf and lets the striker fall. They're not complicated DA/SA stuff with a ton of parts that have to have a silky smooth interface with each other.

The M&Ps, and several other S&Ws are $75 off and have the $75 rebate at Cabelas. $150 off, even though you have to wait a few weeks for the rebate is pretty nice. The Performance Center seems pretty nice, but have not shot it yet.

The ccw 1911s can get really pricey. Speaking of pricey, I looked at one of these recently.
