    Best semi-auto pistol you've ever owned?

    I still have space for one more semi-auto pistol in my safe.
    I like to stay with 40 cal. to make my reloading simple for all my pistols.

    What is the very best pistol you've ever owned(and still made today) for accuracy, reliability, durability and good feel in your hand to shoot?

    (I'm looking for something by a different maker than my 4)
    I have a Glock 23, a Springfield XD40 subcompact, A Beretta(Stoeger)8000 Cougar, and A Taurus Millenium Pro PT-40

    thanks

    My 1911 .45 S&W sc-pd. Feels the best and I am fairly accurate with it. I have shot everything under the sun in it and it has never choked once. Can't ask much more out a pistol than that. Easy to pack with a good holster and the instructors belt I got from Galco. Good luck in your choice.

    Best, Baldy..

    Right now my M&Ps are my favorites and have so far been flawless but the most reliable gun I ever had was my Beretta 92f (not fs). I put over 50,000 rounds through it over the years and it never hiccuped once in any way. It was the only gun I ever kept long enough to put that many rounds through.

    I've traded away many auto's from different brand makers for several reasons. But, the only two I have not and will not are my SigSauer P229 and Walther P99.

    My favorite Autoloader.......

    Was a Colt Gold Cup .45 Auto. When I bought the gun I was told it was set up for hardball.

    I only tried this gun on crows, and with Winchester Silvertip ammo it was deadly out to about 75 yards or so. The lighter Silvertips gave fairly flat trajectories, and seemed to be explosive on these critters.

    I had a good handload usinf 185 gr, Sierra jacketed hollow cavity bullets, but never tried them on animals.

    Talking Best Semi Auto pistol?

    It depends on what it is for. for serious social carry I don't think there is any better than the 3913 that I have. For accuracy the model 52 S&W in .38 Special wad cutter. for Uniform Duty carry I love the 1076 or the 645. For plinking I have found nothing better than the 4" 422 by S&W. Jim

    I have had great luck with 1911's in 9mm,38 super and45 over the years..Must say that the CZ 75b's are super also..Can't say I have had any problems with either style gun..
    Lately a trip to the range means a 1911 and a CZ,both in 9mm and maybe a Cienier 22 kit on a 1911 frame..

    For years my favorite was my Ruger P94 in .40 caliber. Recently sold it to get the S&W M&P for several reasons.
    Mostly because it's for my duty gun - holds 14 + 1, has accessory rail.

    I'd have kept the Ruger - great shootin & accurate but finances as they are I couldn't get the M&P without selling it.

    M&P's great too ya know.

    Baby Eagle semi-compact polymer 9mm. It feels really good in my hand and it is extremely accurate. Its also 100% reliable with me.

    Nothing beats a SIG

    Since you said you like to stay with .40, I say get a SIG Elite, either a P226 or a P229. They aren't cheap, they aren't light, and they aren't small. But the quality is top-notch (at least in my experience). They feel simply elegant to shoot. All firearms are tools; a SIG is both a tool and an heirloom.
