View Poll Results: best for CC
- 194. You may not vote on this poll
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.
Sig Sauer P232 Stainless Steel .380ACP
Kimber 1911 Pro CDP II
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...
The second stringer (vying for sixth-man of the year) is my new Kel-Tec p11)
A good Ruger is hard to pass up.

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.
Your list gives me insufficient choices.
I'll take an Officers' Model in .45 ACP.
I carry a Beretta 92FS. Why mess around?

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.

I cant vote. There aint no 1911 on there.
I know it wasn't on the list, but........
Colt Combat Commander in .45 ACP.
I voted Sig 220 but have a 229. Sig rules!
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.
but i do not like your choices
