The best handgun is the one you find most comfortable to your hand and eye. The advice I usually give is to try several types at the range, then choose. As for calibre, .45 acp is good, .357 or 9mm is fine too!

The sigpro fits my hand best, thats for sure, but im not sure its the best pistol. I can get use to every grip, even i can buy optional rubber-grips, thats not a problem.

To try and differentiate the "best" between H&K, Sig, and Glock is a worthless endeavor. They are all very well made guns which will do the job equally well. Go with the one that feels best to you.

If this is your first gun, I'd lean towards the 9 rather than the .45 (unless you have a specific need for a big bullet like backwoods gun). 9mm ammo is the least expensive of all the "major" calibers which means more shooting.

But once you starting shooting, you'll buy a .22lr very shortly anyway so you can shoot all day and into the night without breaking the bank.

Interesting list... Hmmmmm...

I agree with 9mm as an EDC. If you are not going to go 1911 for the .45 acp round, then the H&K p30 9mm would be my vote!

All choices are great but I think S&W M&P series and Springfield XD series deserve a look too.

My suggestion would be find a range that rents guns at a reasonable price and shoot a few. I don't know how well you shoot a handgun but it takes a little experience to be able to choose which you shoot best.

I would choose 9mm so you can shoot more for less and then move to .45 later and even better buy a .22 pistol too.

The SigPro shoots fine, i've never tried a P30 tho, the glock with the new handles must be great ?! I shot the 3rd gen glock and it feels like holding a cactus

The S&W and XD, i don't like these, not a bit.

IMHO i'm pretty sure the USP 9mm is the best from all these guns from the poll, but the price for that model here is....Lets just say you can get 2 USP's out there, i can get only 1, **** huh?
