I would also suggest a revolver. As much as anything, dropping bullets into the cylinder is a lot easier than repeatedly loading magazines. I think that makes a shooting session that much more enjoyable. A big 10-round cylinder like on the S&W 617 or Ruger GP100 gives you the same capacity as the pistols you mention, and the accuracy is on par with the better target pistols. Plus they shoot anything: shorts, longs, every velocity known to man, and you'll never have to worry about a jam.

I shoot a GP100 and I absolutely love it. I got it about a year ago for the exact reasons you mention and I have no regrets. I do however think you couldn't go wrong with the guns you're currently looking at. I recently shot a Ruger Mark IV and I found it to be a very nice pistol.
