I am going to throw out a couple many have never heard of. Sig P-221 and the Dawson Nightfighter. My STI would take down 6" steel all day long at 50 yards
In life, strive to take the high road....It offers a better field of fire.

Default Well, you asked for it...

Most accurate handguns I've ever had, right out of the box, real tack drivers:

Glock 21, 21SF, 30, and 30SF. All with Trijicon green-orange-green tritium night sights...

More accurate than my former Kimber or SA 1911s, Beretta M9A1s, or Inox 92F...

Bar none, the Glocks are more accurate, softer shooting, and much more reliable than any other handguns...

For what purpose? Target shooting or defensive use. Big difference. The most accurate guns are ususally hand made and tuned to a poarticular load for a particular purpose but not ususally very concealed carry friendly.

The most accurate out of the box production pistol I ever owned was a SIG P220. Don't know if mine was a fluke but I doubt it based on other's experience. My most accurate .45 right now is my WIlson Combat CQB. A pistol designed for concealed carry but accurate enough that I could probably win matches with it if I wanted to. The SIG P210 is rumored the be one of the most accurate centerfire pistol out there and they command prices in excess of $2,000 if you can even find one for sale. Smith and Wesson used to make a model 52 pistol designed to fire .38 SPL wadcutter target loads for bullseye shooters. They have not made them in years and they also command very high prices.

This is a really good video I think.

He was absulutly "spot on" in his definition of ACCURACY, IMHO.

Don't think such a question could be accurately answered. It's best to find the gun/ammo that the individual is most accurate with. Having an accurate firearm will not make you an accurate shooter right out of the gate. Gotta put in the required work

Very true, but there are some other reasons we like accurate guns .

1) We Americans are big-time technocheauvanists. We want the best machines we can, just because they are better, not because we can utilize what makes them better :P . That's why we'll buy a 600HP Corvette to drive to and from work at the speed limit :P .

2) It is nice knowing that in the rare instances our skills do begin to approach what our firearms can do, it is nice knowing that they won't hold us back. I've sold every gun that did .
