    Flawless? There is not a single firearm out there that is flawless. You'll have to be more specific than that.

    my personal favorite in 40 caliber, the Springfield Amory XDm40. 16+1 rounds, interchangeable backstrap grips, probably one of the best triggers of any striker fired pistol, match grade barrels, and shoot great as far as recoil. just my opinion. of all the 40 caliber pistols i have owned over the years, it's definately the best i have ever owned in 40 caliber and one i carry quite a lot.

    Skip the .40 and get a 10mm!

    I have a Beretta 96A1, it shoots better than I can, I have shot my friend's Glock and another's xd quite a bit and I cannot shoot them as well, I don't know if it is me or the guns but I always figured something with a hammer and a single action trigger pull should be a little more accurate than a striker, that was part of my reason for buying the Beretta in the first place. I see some posts on here in favor of the strikers so I suppose I will take some lumps for this post but so be it, it is my opinion.:p

    Coondog, you won't get any lumps from me! i had a Beretta 96 years ago shortly after they came out, and it was a great pistol. but as much as i liked that M96, i have to say, i do like my XDm40 better. just fits in my hand better. i would buy another M96 if it came along at the right time and price though, because IMO, it is a very good pistol. i am glad i am not the only one to like them either!

    M&P has the better ergos as far as the polymer guns go. the really question though is what feels good in you hands which .40 do you prefer the most. you can go on here and see the all the popular brands on here and get the fact names like Glock Springfield S&W Ruger ect. ect. all are reliable firearms that function well so the question comes down to you

    Ya I got the Beretta m9a1, HK expert, FN tac, and some 1911s. Sooo should it be glock xd M&P CZ or any others i havent mentioned. I'm open to anything that wont break, jam, easy to clean every inch of the gun, and be very accurate. I will say I'm leaning more towards the XDm competition unless this forum can convince me otherwises. So keep on posting.

    I went with the Glock 22 and recommend you try/rent one. It's a Gen 2 (LE trade in) and comes as close to malfunction-free as any handgun. The new Gen 4s are the way to go now, that gen seems to work best in .40 and .357 Sig. I like .40 and also went with the G23 and G27, all fine guns as well. The G23 is the perfect size for me.

    You need to go shoot them. We can't tell you what will fit/feel best in your hands. I can't stand the way Glocks feel and I am not that accurate with them (I've owned two and sold both). Now the XD's I shoot really well, my friend has one that I do quite well with and I like how it feels. Any of the ones mentioned will be fine firearms and all have good reputations, but you really should try and shoot the ones you are considering.

    JD has made an excellent point and i agree. everyones hands are different and what fits my hand well, may not feel the same in yours. find what fits you, because it's for you. my choice is merely a suggestion to try out, just like everyone else's choice. they are all good ones for you to try out.

    Beretta 96, I bought an INOX police trade-in from Bud's awhile back, can't make it jam, it eats everything, plus it's dead accurate.

    XD40 sub compact. I base this on the number of reported kabooms that the Glock has experienced vs the number of XD kabooms.
