Your specs all point to the Weihrauch HW45. It is spring powered so it's virtually free to operate and it gives a nice kick that makes it lively and a good challenge to shoot accurately. It's compatible with 1911 grips and you can buy both .177 and .22 barrels without any mod to the pistol (albeit the .177 is detuned in Canada so I'm not sure of the velocity of the .177 with a .22 barrel). All you'll need are pellets and targets. I wish I still had mine!
Blowback air pistols will require you to buy a lot of Co2 cartridges and the quality of most of these leave to be desired. I'd stay away from them.
