      I think the HK USPs (and/or the USP Compacts) should be on that list.

      The selection are real world pistols for real world folk....H&K, as well as the Sig line are not civilian friendly companies, nor do they market pistols that are realistically priced, nor any more reliable than the ones on the poll. The poll is a sampling of pistols that may be used by military and law enforcement, but also are not cost prohibitive for the average Wyatt Earp.

      I went with the XD because it is the only one out of that bunch that I have shot. It was a 45XD and it will get the job done for sure. Well balanced and recoil was about the same as a 1911 only it felt a little higher in the hand. Two handed it would come back on target as good as a 1911. I liked it.

      I'll vote HK as well. I don't quite understand the 'real world' comments but thats fine, not my poll.

      Of the ones listed I have the most experience with the Glock, and my HK beats the socks off them.....LOL!!!

      Another vote for H&K USPc here.
      And the Smith & Wesson M&P as an option of lesser cost.

      Hey Dustoff, They are talking you are just not listening.
      When you ask a fair question, and then you do not want to hear what people have to say just because it falls outside of your preconceived notions, what are you really gaining?

      First off, the sampling of 5 pistols represents the brands MOST used by Law enforcement and the Military....foreign and domestic. Secondly, the question asked was simple....which of the listed are your faves. Thirdly, there is nothing preconceived here...if anything, any other responses fall outside the parameters of the poll. Fourth, and last, H&K and Sig represent a miniscule percentage insofar as use by the aforementioned agencies...and I suspect, due to their high cost; and they are not the most consumer friendly companies to deal with....there are too many manufacturwers to list, and I chose the top 5 MOST represented in the civilian, Law enforcement, and militray arenas. Now, if you find all this too confusing, then it's on you.

      I have shot most of the guns listed in the poll and even put a box through an H&K, but I still prefer my XD-45. Ergonomics, accuracy, dependability, size and weight are the determining factors for me. This is just my personal opinion, that comes from practical experience. I shoot a lot, probably more than most folks even think of. My XD-45 makes that shooting fun and interesting.

      The question asked what I thought was the best of the bunch for plastic, and for me it is the H&K USP series. As far as a sampling of pistols that may be used by law enforcement or military since when did the Walther, Springfield XD or Kahr outsell H&K or Sig?

      Xd 45 Acp

      Like a few of the others, at one time or the other , I have fired all the weapons listed and the HK-SIGMA-Walther --the XD wins out. I have kept most of my GLOCKS and like them but when the XD45ACP was introduced , it put a new ball game for the others to come up to. Simple, easy and goes bang.

      ....the poll suggests who outsells who. In fact, I didn't ask that question. If you do a carefull search, you will find the pistols in the poll in the hands of more of the mentioned agencies than H&K and Sig...cost being one reason. No mention that Sig or H&K are inferior pistols...what is signficant is that if in fact Sig and H&K outsell all the others, then I suspect these pistols (and I see it on the ranges all the time) are in the hands of a boat load of posers, wannabees, and those who simply don't wince at the prices these guys sell for.

      in Indiana....bet you don't have 40+ thousand LEO's carrying a Sig in Indy....I'm not sure there are 40+ thousand LEOs in Indiana....there are 40,000+ NYPD LEO's carrying Kahrs......hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. So try to keep the thread on track jw....all you are saying is really nothing...NYPD went with Kahr because it met their specs, and cost requirement.....so I'll give ya' a break....for now.
