    Since your question specifically asks about reliability and is restricted to those choices I choose Glock. In the real world, I choose a Walther P99 or P99c.

    I voted Glock, but, carry both Glock and Sig. Glock was my first handgun and I have never had a reliability issue. I love my Sigs, but, it's hard to forget your first love.
    Man's got to know his limitations.

    XD = Glock for reliability
    XD > Glock 23 for size
    XD < Glock for accessories

    I chose size over toys. I carry the XD. But mines a 9mm...

    A good Ruger is hard to pass up.

    I don't trust my life to any single machine. I trust my thought process and body to get me through difficulties by using whatever is available at any point in time. I don't currently have any of the items you listed so did not vote, but will at times have a full size M&P40 which does not drop mags unless I tell it to, or a Taurus 605 or a Ruger GP100 either on my belt or in very close proximity. I have a high degree of confidence they will go boom when I pull the trigger. That confidence has been developed over time by their individual performance during practice shoots which have exceeded 1000 successful rounds per item. The M&P which is admittedly the newest design has performed flawlessly for in excess of 7000 rounds. It's little brother, an M&P9 is now residing with my Number 1 Grandson which should tell you what confidence level it has earned after 6000 rounds. The most troublesom of the three was the GP100 but I am satisfied it has been kicked into shape.

    Whatever you end up with needs to prove itself in your hands before you carry it for personal defense.

    Good luck, stay safe and if necessary shoot straight.

    Best for CC? The choices listed don't matter as much as:

    1. Having a CC weap. on you (1st rule in a gunfight.. bring a gun)
    2. Carrying the weapon you train with (muscle memory is everything)
    3. Training for shot placement (more important than caliber, and bullet type) and achieving consistent results (COM or CNS)
    4. Maintaining your weapon properly
    5. Using a holster/carry method that allows ready access, comfort and secure retention (level II and above not needed for civilians)
    6. Matching your carry method to your attire. And your attire to carry.

    Far too many of these posts focus on gun and ammo selection. So long as these are quality purchases, your hardware is much less important than your skills. In the right hands, even a .22 can be an adequate carry piece. Get proper training, then practice.

    No choices for SA only? I prefer one of those or a nice DA-SA like Bersa ( yes Bersa ) or a CZ RAMI.

    First I was given insufficient choices. Now I'm given insufficient ammunition.
    Next thing you know, I'll have nothing left but a baseball bat. And my Semmerling.

    What, did you move to england?
    Seriously though i agree on the Officers (as you might guess by my avatar), but at 7+1, you don't loose much on a sixgun, and he did say reliable. They do seem to be that, no?

    I trust TAP, RACK, BANG!

    No pistol is problem free, that's why you should practice malfunction drills. But as far as the poll goes... I TAP, RACK, BANG my Glock the fastest,so I'll go with that.
