My "go to gun" has always been a .40 S&W Glock Mod. 35 used for home defense and for putting holes in a target. It has been replaced and is now in the safe. I recently got an SAR K2/45 which is now my new favorite.
Holds 14 + 1, has a great feel, and trigger pull. A tad heavy because of 15 rounds of .45s. but like the extra chances if they are necessary. Very accurate right out of the box but has adjustable rear sight. So far have gone through about 300 rounds without a hitch. SARs are made in Turkey and are used by their military and police. Take down is easier than a 1911 and a little harder than the Glock. I don't sell them, I just really like this gun.
