    I don't notice it when firing, but the XD grip safety is a pain in the ass when the grip is shifted for takedown or manually locking the slide back.

    1911 if Money is no Objective. They are pistols for real men. I say this becasue of the weight of the firearm and the large caliber. It will enter a targer nice and round then turn it around an there is a hole the size of a small cannon.. Plus a set of nice Pearl handles really look nice..

    HAHAHA I agree :) I love my 1911 in .45 ACP; I consistently shoot the tightest patterns with it, and if I had the luxury of choosing what I brought into a gun fight (as a civillian) I would hope that I had my 1911 with me every time.

    [​IMG]

    I voted for the Beretta 92FS. The first time I ever picked one up was in a Ranger Challenge shooting competition, after I had ran about 300 yards with two full 5 gal water cans, shot 60 rounds out of an M4, and ran to the pistol range. Even breathing hard, never even touched one before (although I do have extensive experience with pistol shooting) I hit 5 steel targets at 15 yards and one bonus target at 35 yards (on the first shot) in under 8 seconds. I distinctly remember leveling on the bonus target, exhaling, and squeezing the trigger to see the round impact the steel target on the tip of my front sight post - exactly where I was aiming. I have been impressed with them ever since.

    P.S. If you were wondering why I had never touched one before the competition, my unit didn't have one available to train on, so we had to use "similar" pistols that people could bring from home (my 1911 included).

    I voted Glock. Ive seen some newer Sigs and the quality just doesnt seem as high as it used to be. You might also want to look into CZ, they make some amazing hand guns.

    Vote glock. Sure other guns are more shiny and pretty but cheap and reliable and goes bang is what is really needed i think.

    Speak of the devil... I have some cop friends who are switching to glocks because their 1911 have jammed during training recently (these are 1911 guys) I asked why g17 and not g19? They said longer barrel for duty carry accuracy. Why 9mm? 18 bullets are better for firefights.

    Keep in mind they still love 1911s to death but for a hostile environment seems like glock wins and is a cheap addition to their expansive gun collection.

    CZ 75 P07 Duty. Awesome handgun and will only run you $425 or so. Best compact handgun for the money. My brother has one and I'm considering selling my H&K P30 for one.

    I think it depends on what your intended usage is. Concealed carry, home defense, target plinking? Of those three, the Glock 19 will probably suit all three of those without greatly sacrificing any of those usages. The Glock 19 doesn't do any one thing exceptionally well but it can do most things very well.

    I had a Sig 226 and sold it (pre E2 grips) because I thought the gun felt large in my hand. My father has a Beretta 92FS that I enjoy shooting but I would never own one. I have a 1911, that shoots accurately but is expensive to feed. The two hand guns that see the most usage in my stable is the Glock 17 and 19.

    In the end, you have to look at your intended usage, availability to obtain ammunition, willingness to train on a platform and personal preference and decide from there.

    In regards to the 1911, I'd read this as well
