    Sig 229, in.40ACP. Most accurate off-the-shelf handgun I've ever owned.

    I've never fired a ".40ACP". I'll have to keep my eyes peeled.

    As an old 45 guy and very old school, I still like my detonics scoremaster for carrying, also very acurate and reliable as hell.

    None is better than the Baby Eagle/Jericho as imported from Israel. Compared to the Berettas, Sigs, Colts, S&Ws, HK, Ruger, Browning pistols I've owned, my Jericho 941 is far superior in virtually every aspect. Those Jews sure know how to make an excellent handgun.

    I voted for Springfield XD because this is the gun I own and only the second pistol I have ever shot.

    I would say the Smith & Wesson M&P 9mm is a great choice. I have somewhere around 1500 rounds thru mine and haven't had any problems. As good a choice as any.

    Mine is the Sig P228 9mm and a very close tie is the XDM 3.8 9mm.

    Price should be under $650

    Used Guns would be a possibility.

    Thanks
    I have a CZ 75 SP-01, an IWI Baby Eagle II (CZ clone), a Springfield XD 45C, and a FNH FNX 45. All of them are great guns in my opinion, I love them all. The FNX would be way too large to carry in .45, but the 9mm version is a lot smaller (and holds a lot of rounds. The CZ and their clones might be a bit heavy to carry daily as they are all steel construction, but they're very reliable and the ergonomics are great. The XD 45 is my daily carry gun and I love it. The trigger safety and grip safety really help me with peace of mind while carrying one in the pipe and I personally really like the trigger pull. That's honestly the main thing you need to consider.

    Do you want a single action gun (hammer back, safety on)? Go with a CZ, FNH, or used Sig in your price range.
    Do you want a striker fired gun (no hammer, longer trigger pull than SA)? Go with a Glock, Walther or XD

    I personally would recommend a compact version of the Springfield XD line or the FNX 9. Both great handguns, but very different. Hold both and try them out to see what you like. They should both be concealable but not too small. My XD 45C is wider than any 9 you could likely buy and I hardly ever print even when wearing a T-shirt.

    Edit: These are all just my opinions. Others may agree with me, most won't. The truth is, with so many different options available, it's impossible to find the best gun for you without holding (and ideally shooting) various different options.

    I'd have to say my Desert Eagle .50. Accurate as hell and it will punch through whatever you're hiding behind. I live in Canada so getting a concealed permit is impossible - so no need to worry about that. Plus, if I run out of ammo I can use the thing as a battering ram or blunt object.

    Okay, okay, I know. I'd go with my Smith & Wesson M&P9. Fits my hand perfect. Awesome sights. Excellent weapon all-around.

    I have owned a few conceal firearms and it can be frustrating. The smaller you go the less reliable has been my experience.

    The firearm I have settled on after a lot of trial and error is the S&W Shield 9mm.
    There is only one problem it was next to impossible to locate one before Pres Obama started talking gun control now it is a joke trying to locate a Shield unless you are willing to bid on gunbroker.com 100s above retail.

    I see a lot of good suggestions here.
    My suggestion is a Kel Tec P11. This loaded with the right ammo is as good as the 40 or 45(I forget which one). The ammo, I think, is Winchester PDX but this just a guess.
    My other pistol is a Kel Tec P32 with a 10rd magazine. This is used when the clothes do not allow safe conceal of the P11.

    Just put a Glock 23 Gen-4 on lay-a-way. Hoping it'll be my new favorite. Prior to this, the only handgun I've ever owned was a Sig P239, 9mm.

    Beretta PX4 subcompact... 13 rds (9mm), great finish & fit. Priced around $530 and is almost as accurate as a full size pistol. Had mine since 2009 and no malfunctions yet.



    If size is not an issue, consider any one of the Beretta 92 series. A little more expensive, but it's an amazing, iconic handgun that is as accurate as they come.

    I haven't shot many different handguns but in the non-1911 my vote is for Heckler & Koch. My 9mm compact is the same size as my Kimber Pro Carry II but without the attitude! Takedown and re-assembly is a breeze. It's a bit wide and the trigger pull is a bit long but easy to get used to. It's lighter than my Kimber and has become my carry gun, I think you could shoot it all day without a
    miss.

    Smith & Wesson Model 10 (my head-of-the-bed gun) and 640 (my EDC), both in .38 Special. I've owned more pistols than revolvers over the years, and liked some very well, but I'm back to revolvers and feel just fine with .38 Special +P.
