    All good guns IMHO

    All have very high quality IMHO

    Can you get a bad one ... sure .. but not very often.

    Unlike VAMarine - I tend to stick with hammer fired guns in DA/SA triggers.

    But that's just me - striker fired & SAO guns have been proven to be great guns.

    That's why they make Fords & Chevy's

    yup - that was my vote - a great great gun -
    but too big for me

    Sig P226, really no contest. USA made-German owned.

    • Beretta-Italians
    • Kahr-owned by Moonies
    • M&P USA-but owned by Saf T Hammer.
    • XD-though they are imports from Croatia
    • Ruger USA
    • Kel Tech USA

    I have carried a Smith & Wesson 5906 and a Beretta 92 on duty. Both were US made, dependable, accurate and easy to shoot well. I have upgraded to 40 s&w, and my holster now carries a model 96 Beretta. No problems at all. The 180 grain bullets are just as accurate and have better down range performance.

    That question will probably never be answered. I suppose you could assemble a panel of "experts" to compile all the information and come up with some sort of list, but then that would eliminate the "human" factor. Some guys, including me, think that a particular gun is the best because of a number of personal things that make the gun the best for me. Does that mean that handgun is the best quality or the most accurate? Not necessarily. Lets just say that there are a number of great gun makers out there that are putting out some very servicable wares. I would say that Smith and Wesson, Ruger, Beretta, Para, are just a few that come to mind that are "factory" guns and not custom rigs. We really do live in a time when there are some quality guns being produced. (Yes, and a few junk ones too) JMHO.

    SR9c I also have the SR40c and SR1911. The 9 is just a fantastic gun. Shoots great, accurate, carries well, easy to maintain and not that expensive compared to a lot. I really believe Ruger is getting it right except the trigger on the LC9 and is one of the best buys on the market.

    I have to say I`m very very biased...I think the best 9mm is the S&W 952....I`ve been looking for one forever...

    I think I am in love with VAMarine...lol

    I like SAO over a hammer type weapon also.

    My picks in this order

    S&W M&P
    Ruger (I like the older P89 better than the SR9 though)
    Sig
    Beretta

    Of course I would also take a CZ over a Beretta but alas it is not American made.

    It's hard to believe that the Browning HP hasn't come into this discussion. Must be the country of origin. Used to be Belgium / Portugal, where are the current ones made?

    If ya dont mind a little rattle here n there the ruger p89 my brother has has NEVER skipped a beat.
    It goes boom EVERY time the trigger gets pulled and never had a FTE or FTF.
    And the prices aint bad either.
