Glock 17...like it or not it has definitely been a huge influence on firearms and has found it's way into countless duty rigs.

Sig P226...very widely issued and used by LE agencies and militaries around the world, most notably Navy SEALS.

The CZ-75. A lot of firearms came off of that one and variants are sold by EAA.

I think you've got a few out of order on that list.

In no particular order;

S&W Mod 19 Combat Magnum
S&W Mod 36 Chief's Special
Browning Hi Power
Colt Woodsman .22
Colt Detective Special
Beretta 92
Colt .25 ACP
S&W Mod 39/59

I'm basing my choices on how I define iconic. An artful representation of the time period.

When everybody stops laughing about the Colt .25, that pistol filled more LEO back pockets than any other gun of the 70's.

My favorite all around gun is a pretty simple gun but a work horse that can be carried, is a great home protection gun, nice range toy, accurate enough to target shoot and easy to teach a new shooter. My Stainless GP100 .357 Mag with a 4" barrel.

Others would be my Kimber Super Carry Ultra + and my .40 FNX. Both are nothing unusual or fancy just fun guns to shoot and accurate as hell.

Number 21, really?

I think I'm just going to have to back out of this thread.
