View Poll Results: Which of these would you rather carry?
- 320. You may not vote on this poll
Of the 4 listed I would have to choose the XD40 because of the reliability and accuracy of my XD45. The 40, though not my favorite caliber, would put me closer to my beloved 45acp.
If I had to choose one of those it would be the H&K but none are my preferred choice.
H&K, if I could afford it.
Sorry, but my reaction is none of the above. Plenty of others that I would pick before any on the list above. Thank God we all have a choice in this country.
XD40. Because I have one. I'd don't have a problem with the 40cal. I have never had a bot, bounced off target. It punches paper real good.
None of the above. My carry tools are a Colt Officers, Para LTC. I recently bought a Browning Pro 40 that carries well but I've not shot it enough to want to put it in my rotation. I use a 40VE Sigma as my truck gun.
I voted for the HK, but I don't really know why. I haven't shot any of these specific guns, so preference for me is only guess work. Based on reputations of these guns, I'd probably trust the one that I was given opportunity to practice with.
Have shot the HK, 92 and XD. I think the XD is the best all around choice, especially is price is factored into the equation. I love my XD 40 tactical. It is my favorite pistol by far. The only thing that shoots better in my collection is my S&W model 19.
S&W Sigma 40
Sig 229 40
Ruger SP 101
Kel Tec 380
I'd go with the XD but I don't care for 40 cal. I do however love all three of my XDs in 45. Never used a HK but I hear their awsome.
i did not vote because i would not trust my life on those guns
This is a hard question to answer as all are good guns. I am more familiar with Beretta, but S'field is a well known, well made gun also. I chose the XD, but for a gun that I would lay my life on it has to be my Tressitu TZ99, which is patterned after but improved upon, the Sig 228.
I voted for the XD
what's wrong with 40 cal?
More stopping power right? Or do you guys not like the droopier balistic profile?
I think this may be the start of another poll topic though...
I carried my CZ 75B before I could really shoot because I thought I needed the extra rounds.

3. If you really need to resort to a pistol for self defense it's really unlikey you'll need a bullet hose to lay down suppresive fire with. Cops who chase criminal need larger capacity weapons. Those interested in self defense don't necessarily IMHO. To me accuracy, ease of carry (something I'll actually have if I need it) , ease of presentation, and confidence in function (not just will it go bang, but am I confident enough to carry in the ready).
Of those on your list I've only shot the XD. To me the slide and frame were a bit wide. I'd be hesitant to carry it concealed. I know the 1911 is not on your list but you will see it often because IMHO it meets the criteria in point 3.

I have shot and loved the hk usp 40 in a compact so that would definitly be my choice but all the guns listed are extremely reliable and i would carry any of them with the doubt of posible failure
Slide that 941 model out for poly semi-compact and then use my vote lol.
Man, I need to just invite all of you guys down for a full mag of my Baby Eagle at the range. She would be more than happy to please you all.
I say the Baby Eagle for the simple facts: its reliable, super accurate, and light in weight. Its a very underrated pistol. Shoot one when/if you get the chance guys!
E....none of the above. I have no experience with any of those choices. I would, however, rely on my S&W .45ACP model 4506-1 without hesitation.
