Definitely an H&K USP.

and goes bang it's all good with me.But for casual and shooting purposes,Im going to put my prefrences in here:

1.Sig sauer series(p225,p226,p228 etc.)
2.Glock brand(specificaly 17,26 & 30)
3.Berretta M92FS 9mm
4.Walther PPK 7.65mm
5.Colt 1911 .45ACP
6.H&K USP .45ACP
7.Ruger MkIII Hunter .22LR
8.IMO Desert eagle
9.Colt Pocketlite mustang .380
10.Tech 9 9mm (Because it is classed as a pistol)

5. Springfield XD 9mm 5"
6. Sig 220
7. Sig 229
8. Sig 226
9. CZ 75

Obviously you'll look to cover the guns with mass appeal and proud, loyal owners.

Looks like you've already got XD, Sig p220, Glock, Colt Python, and 1911 covered.

The biggest omission (from what you'd be marketing to) is probably the CZ 75 platform.

HK USP, SW M&P, Bowning Hi-Power, and Ruger and SW revolvers also have very strong followings as target models for your product, IMO. I'd probably add the FN FiveseveN too, because there are a lot of fans and I'd guess a great many of them have $$ to toss around.

If we are talking top 10 handguns of all time, the list has to start with the 1911. Everything else is just opinion. So here's mine:
  1. Colt/Browning 1911
  2. Colt 1849
  3. Smith & Wesson Model 1
  4. Colt Peacemaker
  5. S&W Model 36
  6. S&W Model 29
  7. Glock 17/22
  8. Luger 1908
  9. Beretta 92
  10. Springfield XDm .40 (because I own and love it)

4.Jericho 941F 9mm
5.H&K P7
6.Sig Sauer 226

The list does not pretends to be "top of the tops" - I use all of them, and it's my own top list.
