Default One handed pistols

What pistol(s) can you with the most accuracy one handed? Mine has to be my 1911.

Sounds like perfect practice. I curious though because in an unfortunate scenario only one hand works, what would be the easiest handgun for you to accurately shoot?

I haven't done it yet but it is a good idea to train one handed shooting in case one of your hand get "disabled".

I'll try that next time.

Pretty much anything. I only shoot one handed unless it's a really long shot. I also shoot with either hand.

I don't know if this answers the question asked but that would be any pistol I CC, a two hand grip would be best but in the time of need might be one hand only on the firearm. That might inclued your weak hand, bad might find you in many situations that you have to adapt to prevail. Practice two hand, one hand and weak hand. S&W M&P 45 is what I train with for that moment in time.
