    Any semi auto can be as accurate as you want it, it just depends on how much you train with it and how good you train yourself to shoot properly

    That said, in my opinion...

    1911s are the most accurate .45's

    Beretta M9/M92 is the most accurate 9mm

    "All guns are more accurate than the shooter". That said the handgun I shoot the best is both my Ruger SR9c and my Springfield Mil-Spec 1911A1.

    Very few shooters are skilled enough to prove the accuracy of the average pistol. I shoot regularly and highly doubt my skill will ever surpass the capabilities of any of my pistols...and they all fall into the $400-800 price range.

    There are a ton of super accurate rimfires out there.

    Among semi-auto centerfires, you can pay $2000+ for high end 1911s or a Sig P210 or X-5. Those guns have exceptional reputations as target guns. So do some of the $1000 CZs. Even the longslide Glocks are quite popular in competitions I believe, and they're a good choice if that's up your alley.

    If you want a good centerfire that'll maximize your own skill w/o breaking the bank:

    9mm: Browning Hi-Power, CZ 75, or Sig P226.
    357sig/40: Sig P226
    45acp: 1911
    357mag: 6" S&W 627/686, maybe a Ruger GP100

    I have a few 1911a1's, and my most accurate is an older Springfield I bought new in about 1987. It has been rebuilt several times and is still the most accurate in a machine rest over my others (Ed Brown Kobra Carry included.)

    My FNP-45 Tactical is very accurate, soft recoil, and one of the best sights in a handgun.

    Hard to beat a 1911 for accuracy.

    Semi auto rifles will vary. But will never be as accurate as bolt guns.

    The most accurate semi auto would a Bulls-eye 22lr. 1911 is good but not as good as my Buckmark. I got a Kimber Gold Match 1911. It is very accurate but recoil and cost of ammo knock it out of most accurate category. I practice more with the Buckmark and is able to split playing cards with it. One more thing get the right ammo for the gun. Put the gun on a Ransom Rest and try different loads to see what shoots the tightest groups.

    The 1911 probably has the greatest potential for easy accuracy among "defensive" autos. Though, one of the military's competition teams tuned a Beretta 92 (M9) to shoot a 2" group at 50 yards, I believe one-handed.


    I did this 1.75" group @ 25 yards yesterday with my cheap-o Taurus OSS 9mm :p . Though, I specifically bought the pistol for its reported accuracy, and so far I'm not disappointed in that respect.

    Seems like we should define whether we are including fixed-barreled rimfires or not, heh.

    There is a separate section specifically for rimfires so it is logical to presume that if he is looking in the non-rimfire section, he isnt looking for a rimfire :) . But, as I said, we should, for the sake of relevance, define what he's looking for. If he wants a handgun for IDPA and bullseye, a Buckmark won't get him anywhere.

    Good point.
    Center fire it is.

    I suppose a little more specificity in the OP would save us some BS.

    These *what's the best* threads usually end up FUBAR anyway. :p

    007,

    That is some good shooting! I just got a Buckmark from a good friend of mine that has a red dot on it. Hope it shoots that good!
    What ammunition are you using? Couldn't make it out
