CZ 75b- Great platform. Good trigger, and essentially a double stack 9mm 1911, ala the BHP. Natural point/feel/grip. Just seems to find its target with ease and repeatability. Also a sharp looking gun at a bargain price of $550-600. It is quite heavy though, so mine is strictly HD/range.

My honorable mentions: 1911, BHP, XDm, Ruger MK & 22/45 rimfires, and most alloy Sigs.

Two great things come out of the Czech Republic-CZ and girls. I have enjoyed both.

M&P has 33 ish round magazines. And they point more naturally than Glock in my hands.

I do like the M&P series. My mom and step dad have matching .40s and I like to shoot them when I get a chance. The recoil feels snappier then my 1911 though. About like the difference between a solid shove (1911) and a slap (M&P).

Well that's because 1) you were shooting .40 S&W as opposed to I'm assuming .45 ACP and 2) its a polymer gun instead of a steel frame.

My wife owns an M&P9 full size and I promise you the recoil isn't snappy. Its extremely pleasant.

Not a fan of their barrels as its not safe to use unjacketed bullets. Sights are simply aweful and due to it not being a natural pointing gun its difficult to shoot well. The grip is a square block much bigger than it needs to be due to poor magazine design. This also compounds the difficulty in it being used for much beyound hearing it go bang.

Yes I have tried them on numerous occasions. I know my tastes in things change overtime but glock has been one of those that has not changed since I rented one the first time in the 80's. I still rent one from time time to keep familiarity with it because its prolific.

There are other small issues but those are the biggees. Unlike some I have concrete reasons, besides gaston glock being a douche, that I don't like the design. I know other folks like them and use them that's fine with me, more for you
Oh, I get it. And I don't blame you or anyone who doesn't find Glocks to be a good fit. I'm just glad there are lots of gun designs out there so folks can find what they like. I'm not the complete Glock fanboy who will say that a Glock is the solution to all people's handgun needs. I don't think there is any single gun out there that fits that description, and why I don't have just one favorite.

I have strong opinions against Taurus, but that was based on broken guns from the late '80s and early '90s that I helped return for warranty work. That and watching one of their revolvers launch it's barrel down range on the first cylinder of ammo put through it. I know lot's of folks have ahd very good luck with Taurus, and that their quality and customer service has a better track record in more recent years. I just can't bring myself to get past the feeling thatI'm taking a gamble though if I were to buy one.

well.....i have favorite, but i also have pretty limited experience.

i have always like the berreta 92 series in feel, "shootability" and set up, but i also felt it was too big....

i got a stainless compact 92 and it is my favorite semi auto right now. its a smooth little gun and just the right size imo.

again, i have probably only had experience with 8-10 different semi auto handguns, so i am sure that there is probably many other great pistols out there i have never gotten a chance to experience. perhaps some members could mail me some pistols to test out for a year or two......

Commander size 1911s. They already make up half of my growing 1911 collection, but I'm always looking for another.
