My problem with 99% of the pistols mentioned is they are under powered. I don't want a pistol that requires that I learn to "double tap." I like the reliability and inherit accuracy of a revolver. I feel much more comfortable with a magnum load and a 4" barrel. People say, "it's to hard to carry" While the revolver weighs more it's no larger than a Glock. If you compare apples to apples the revolver weighs the same. Not many people are comfortable shooting a .357, 45LC or a 41 from a gun with a plastic frame. Naturally they haven't caught on. A friend who is one our local LEO's bought a Ruger 5450. He has never fired a .357 round from it. He tried to get anyone who is willing to shoot one from it. He finally sold it for $350. He replaced it with a nice shiny Charter. I would be more comfortable with the plastic revolvers if they were single action. That is just my personal opinion.

Default Best handgun overall

I carry a Glock model 22
I say Glock is among the best.

This thread is almost a year old. Time for it to go bye-bye.
