If you are willing to look outside the "Made in America" box read up on the CZ-75. A modified Browing Hi-Power that has been used behind the Iron Curtain as the standard LE Pistol for a good long time.

If you don't mind a used gun, you can get cheap revolvers that would fit your needs.

1. 1911 5" barrel. Low maintenance easy strip solid construction and will last forever.

2. Glock, any Glock pick your poison, I love my 30, is 45 cal double stack with 10rnds. It isn't my favorite, because it's ugly and I hate double stacks due to width, but for this purpose it suits well.

Preference aside everyone else is right about revolvers. Balance is better, fixed barrels are better and reliability is of a higher probability. However the BS about only 1-2 shot average is just that BS. Averages aren't acceptable to me and they shouldn't be to you, not when your life is on the line. There have been plenty a situation where multiple rounds and magazines/loads are needed. Don't play chance with your life, get an auto loader and practice with it.

The Ruger P95 is pretty accurate. Shooting silhouettes out to 25 yards it does pretty good. One thing you have to remember when shooting a pistol, it's not a rifle. If you are used to shooting rifles you have to lower your expectations in a pistol. No pistol is going to be as accurate as even the cheapest rifle.

As far as accuracy goes, nothing out performs the Colt Gold Cup .45 ACP.

I had one years ago set up for hardball ammunition and it made a pretty good field gun for varmint hunting out to about seventy-five yards or so.

You can have what you want with Beretta 92 or SIG 226. Accuracy, dependability, high capacity, and probably most important of all in my opinion, NO MANUAL SAFETY!!
( the Beretta is available with or without the safety)

The Beretta is standard issue of the armed forces, and the SIG is secondary standard. That's pretty good company to be in.

The absolute best out of the box semi auto pistol would probably be an H&K

Yes! What he said.

Its all gonna come down to what you like best anyway, but for excellent accuracy, excellent ergonomics and a time proven reliable pistol, you can't beat a CZ 75.

I am going to add another 2 cents, though technically it isnt answering the OP's question:
The current fad with high capacities is just a fad, because with modenr autoloaders we <can>.

Hollywood has driven a lot of this ,where the main characters and sometimes even teenage girls, shoot a dozen attackers with head shots while running w/ autoloaders.

Heck, I couldnt do that and I spend 400 dollars a month on ammo.

Also lots of ammo adds weight..

back when I carried a Glock 19, I would do so with only 4 rounds in it.
yes you heard me right. Why?

Weight .....and a situation that needs more rounds is so rare for all intents and purposes it doesnt exist.

Remember we are not Police or military that SEEKS OUT trouble.
as a civilian self defender you have a completely different requirements set.
