Before my guns were lost in a boating accident, one of my favorites was a Taurus 605 Poly Pro 357 snub nose revolver. I don't like Taurus, but when I held this one at my lgs, it was destined to be mine. It proved to be dependable and very accurate. Keep in mind that any light weight gun in 357 is going to have a little recoil. good luck

Finally got to the range today, and shot my new Walther PPQ M2 9mm. Loved it. Shot very accurately, and had ZERO malfunctions through the first 100 rounds. Great grip and trigger in a polymer. Trigger isn't quite my 1911 trigger, but it is very good compared to the shall not be named other polymer manufacturer I've tried. i recommend it to anyone looking for that type of gun.

Almost any $400+ polymer pistol out there is likely to be a durable and highly functional gun. Beyond that, it's all about personal preferences and budget.

My tupperware includes an XDm45, XDs45, G27, and G23/32. My next will probably be an XDm 5.25"...9mm I think (wish they offered it in 357sig). I like Springfield's polymer pistols myself, but S&W M&P is excellent and I find FN's examples really interesting as well. My Glocks almost never get shot...arguably the red-headed step-children of my pistol collection...but they're ultra reliable keepers. The G32 is my woods gun and the G27 is typically stashed in my truck as a 'just in case' contingency.

Got a S&W Shield for my daughter in 9mm for concealed carry. Went and shot Saturday and it's one of the nicest, most accurate pocket pistols I've ever shot! 100 rounds and not one issue. I have G26, STI LS and a XD sub in 9mm and I wish I'd got it for myself. She hit a 10"X15" steel plate at 40 feet 90 out of a hundred times and it's her first gun. I got dibs if she ever decides to sell!

I shoot the PPQ in USPSA and love it! Ordered the 5" the other day.

Check out this month's American Rifleman's cover model, with a review by Wiley Clapp!

The Ruger SR45 is quickly becoming my favorite semi-auto handgun. I've only got several hundred rounds through so far, but because of the ergo's and shootability it is rising in the rankings.

And much to might delight, Clapp says a compact model is "in the works!" I can't wait!!

They are an exceptionally proven platform, and very reliable.

S&W gives tremendous customer service, I've heard, IF you need it.

They come in most major calibers: 9mm, .357 Sig, .40 S&W, .45 ACP.

Fully ambidextrous.

You can get them with or without a thumb safety as well as a magazine disconnect.

I could go on. I think you see my point.
The M&P series are like Glocks designed with the human body in mind. They cost just a little bit more than the Glock, but it's worth it.

In my area of nw ohio glocks cost $20-$50 more than m&p. I have a glock and m&p, and yes the m&p does feel better in hand. I actually shoot my m&p better as well, Imagine that
