That's funny...but then again, might not be a bad thing to be on the receiving end of a pink modulator

I asked this very same question to about 20 people when I bought my first gun and the answer that made the most sense to me was "The gun in your hand is the best gun". Then the most sensible answer was shoot as many guns, brands and calibers as you can and decide based on what you shoot best, feel the most comfortable carrying and fits your budget. The gun you are saving up to buy won't save your life today.

I carry a Subcompact XD 9mm if I am wearing something that will allow it. If I am dressed in a way that I carry in my purse I carry a .357 Magnum LCR. If I am only carrying a wristlet for a purse I carry a P3AT. I keep a SP101 .327 Magnum in my night stand. I just recently bought a Kimber 1911. Once I get more familiar with it I might keep that by my night stand and give the SP101 to my daughter.

These "best" posts are something aren't they?
I'm old fashioned for the most part in my gun likes. Make them of metal, by a main manufacturer and of a standard caliber. My best pistol is a S&W scandium 1911.

If there was just one gun that was the best they would make only that one...look what gets copied most.

I guess if I had to choose....I would pick the 08 Luger ....I know it is not high capacity, not reliable in dirty conditions, complicated mechanics.......but....... I am old....if subjected to a gun fight I'd probably lose.....however...... I'd go in style.

Default Best Handgun

I can speak from experience that a Sig 226 is the most accurate and reliable combat semi-auto I have ever had the pleasure of owning. After 8,000 rounds I replaced the barrel, just a drop in. Never had a jam or stove pipe. After almost 30 years it will still be my choice to take into combat. Not many can say the same for a 30 year old pistol.

Two questions

What does target mean? What would it mean in terms of practical use in a combat situation, say at close range?

Which of these will take the widest range of ammo?
