Might i recomend the new Walther PPQ. The trigger is effing amazing and ergonomics are top notch. I bought one about a month ago for $519(after tax) and have since put 400rds through it with absolutely no malfunctions. The only issue i have is that the gun is so new to the market that Walther hasn't released the magazines for it yet. However they will accept and work with later P99 mags....but there are minor differances. I had to shave down the front lip a couple MM so I would feel confident that it wasnt hitting the feed ramp. Just my 2 cents.

ps. check out the review that "nutnfancy" did on youtube, he is pretty convincing
I can't fix stupid!!
-Walther PPQ 40 s&w-edc
-Mossberg 590, 8+1 shot, 12 gauge-home defense

Well there are far too many variables to consider. Fullsize, compact, subcompact. It also makes a difference in what you wanna pay. I have owned a Smith&Wesson sigma, Heckler&Koch USP, Heckler&Koch P2000sk, SigSauer SP2022, all in 40 cal. I haven't shot the Sig but H&K makes great products and this Sig seems like its going to be awsome.

My next pistol will be a Walther PPS. Very slim design. I already have M&P sub and SAXD sub. They are great as well. The XD is currently my go-to for carry. Sooooo very accurate for a little gun...once you get used to the 6 o'clock hold, anyway.
