    Shoot as many as you can and choose the one you shoot the best - which may not be the same as the one you think "feels" the best.
    Hey Mike, shot a Taurus lately? I know there are haters out there that say they're junk, but Taurus has really turned things around. Pick one up, handle it, inspect it, and judge the quality against any of the other brands. Then see if you can find someone to let you shoot one. I have a 24/7 OSS in black, 5.25" barrel, 9mm and it shoots sweet. I know this ain't much of an accuracy test, but I just took my CHL here in Texas and put all 50 rounds in a 4 inch circle. Tore the middle out of it! And I had just bought it at Academy the day before. Didn't even have time to shoot it prior to the class. My CHL instructor had to stop and check out what I was shooting. Couldn't believe it was a Taurus. No, I'm not a marksman.... its just a sweet shooting gun.
    Their revolvers have always been pretty good, but yes, their semi-autos used to be crap! But a new day has dawned and they are damn good.
    FYI, I've owned a glock 17 (didn't fit my hand), s&w 4006 (one of the sweetest shooting guns I've owned), colt 1911a1 (lost in divorce), beretta 92fs (grip too large, and I've got big hands), taurus pt917c (same as beretta), colt python (lost in divorce), and a s&w 686 (lost in divorce).
    No I won't say this is the best gun I've owned (still partial to my 4006 that I lost in my divorce) but this Taurus can hold its own against any of them.

    Cool My BB gun is my favorite

    I was real partial to my BB gun when I was a kid. I used to like to shoot at red wasps, you know those aggressive and mean wasps that would chase you. One fine spring day, feeling my oats, or brain dead, depending on your school of thought, I spotted a red wasp nest in the corner of a three sided shed that was behind our house. I took aim and pelted the nest and all hell broke loose as you can imagine. I was standing about 8 to 10 feet from the nest when I noticed one wasp drop from the nest and head straight toward me. I knew I had to do something quick and running wasn't gonna cut it, so almost instinctively I raised my BB gun, cocked it and leveled it at the wasp which was still flying straight toward my face. Well, the shot of my life took place, one I'd never be able to duplicate, but like a Clint Eastwood rifle shot in fluid motion I, cocked, leveled, sighted and fired. Knocking that red wasp right out of the air about 2 feet from the end of my BB gun. OH man it was heaven. Everything was in slow motion and a perfectness of thought and action took place. I found the wasp which was dead on the ground. I knocked him down with a hit to his head, boom, gone, threat terminated. And wow. Last red wasp nest I ever shot at, it was like the pinnacle, the top, the best that shooting a BB gun could ever get. True story, not that I'm real proud of it or anything. I think I was all of 13, maybe. Let me tell you though, I strutted around the farm for, maybe, a month knowing I could kill in one quick, surgical motion. Beware insects. Horn is on duty and he takes no prisoners. Oh, man, to be a kid again.

    Added later; My vote is Beretta, cougar or mini-cougar, Kahr MK9/40, Para Ordnance 9mm (my carry gun) and like Brazier, Glocks are not on my list even tho I carried a G27 for several years. Good and solid, but I hate plastic on a gun. It's ok in a lunch box, but not on a gun. Of course, I carry heavy guns. lol

    My S&W M&P's are growing on me more and more.

    Inexpensive, reliable, and very ergonomic

    My HK USPc is my current favorite. Years ago I had a Browning HP. Don't know how that one got away from me, but it ranks as my all time favorite of the various pistols and revolvers I've owned in my lifetime.

    This is truely a tough one - I love so many.

    Probably my Kimber .45 or my Sig Sauer P230 .380 or my Ruger Vaquero .45 or my Walther PPK.S .380 cal or my Smith & Wesson .45 .

    See what I mean - it's a very tough question and I haven't even started on long guns

    I realize that this is a "favorite" thread, but often enough, someone about which is the "best" handgun.

    Just like I don't think there's a best tool in my toolbox, I don't think I can come up with a "best" gun. Seems to me that the "best target shooting gun" just couldn't be the same "best carry gun".

    Now if you could find a .45 cal handgun about the size of a 3AT, that felt like my P99 in the hand, looked as sharp as a 4" blued Python, and could hold a 1" group at 25 yards; well then I might reconsider. I'm not holding my breath.

    Besides, what reason would you have for getting more than one then!

    Well, I'll only speak upon what I own...

    Vote = none of these

    I have Glocks and an XD. And I like them all. But my SIG's hold their place for me. I have 3 of them.

    P229R Equinox
    P229R DAK
    SIG Pro 2022

    The Equinox takes the blue ribbon!
