I predict a 10mm in your very near future! !!!

5" kimber stainles 2 in 10mm comes to mind.
Or a Glock 20 with a 6" Lone Wolf barrel will satisfy any 10mm craving.

How about a SBR 10mm. That would be nice.

Whatever you get, be sure to clean it after getting it all mucked up. How about an XDm 40 S&W?

You wanna drag it around with you, exposed to various elements? Buy polymer. It's light, affordable, and resilient under the worst of circumstances.

It might also serve as a back-up hunting gun? Buy a faster caliber.

So I'd suggest Glock/XD/M&P in .357sig or 10mm. If you go Glock you can actually get a 357sig conversion barrel for a Glock 20 (10mm) for about $100. But be aware that these two calibers are both on the expensive side.

I'm not a big hunter myself, but the above setup is something I'd strongly consider if taking a semi-auto into the field as a backup hunting pistol.

A well made 1911 would fit the bill. For striker fired weapons I'd lean to the XD or one of the S&W's. Sig Sauer pistols are some of the best in situations you are talking about as well.

Will have to agree w/ DrumJunkie, SigSauer is a top choice semi-auto for the conditions you are describing. Maybe one of the models that has changeable slide options for different calibers. Check-out the P226 and P220 series.

1911 or Hi-Power.
Both have exceptional pedigree and reputation.
Both are battle tested and passed with flying colors.

My personal preference is the HP.
