If we are going purely by caliber I vote .357 mag. It will take any game in North America and is still the gold standard for dealing with two legged predators.

Default Kimber Solo

Has anyone gotten their hands on a Kimber Solo 9mm yet? I'm curious as to quality, reliability & value for the money. Since I've never owned a Kimber, I would not know what to expect. I own Khar 9mm, .45's by Colt (2 or 3), EAA(with .22 kit), Caspian from a Kit, Sprfld, Walther .380, I think that is it. (I'm happy with all of them. All good shooter's. Should have added a Wilson & a Brown. I have 3 or 4 1911's I have built from stock guns.

I would suggest for those with a higher end budget, the H&K USP either full size or compact, in either the 9mm, 40 S&W, or the .45acp. I do like the Sig Sauer P226, P2022.

For the more modest budget: Any Glock or S&W M&P line.

Is not what gun is the best,It is what gun you can put your hand on and hit what you shot at. if the grips are to big or to small this is no good if the kick of the round going off it to much to handle you wont hit s--t so i would go to a gun shop that will let you try them out first!!!!

And why would that be? That plastic return spring guide is far, far from being your garden variety plastic. It was developed with military service in mind. It is much less likely to have problems with sand, is virtually self-lubricating, and is every bit as durable as a steel rod.

.40- Basically the same list without the Luger, Walther P-38, 1911 variants, Beretta 92FS, Glock model numbers are 22, 23, 27, Ruger models are SR40 and SR40c, and the Kahr Models are CW40, CM40, PM40, and P40.

.45ACP- Colt 1911, Springfield 1911, Les Baer 1911, Ed Brown 1911, Wilson Combat 1911, Remington 1911, other 1911's, Springfield XD, Springfield XDm, Ruger SR1911, Glock 21, Glock 30, Glock 36, Ruger P90, and Sig Saurer p200. There's more I'm forgetting probably.
I'd have to agree almost 100%. I say almost because I've never had nor shot a Glock, probably to my detriment.

I have the large hands, short fingers problem and find certain sidearms fit me fine. Others are a bit of a stretch when reaching for the trigger. The M92 is a case in point, though I still was able to hit the ten ring consistantly. Just not comfortably.
