Taurus 24/7 - 15 + 1 rounds in a really nice, inexpensive (relatively - say $340 +/-) pistol.
Try it, you'll like it.

My XD holds 12+1 and shoots very well. I love it.

glock. simple, reliable, way more accurate than any of us is likely to shoot in a fight for our lives. it won't need a billion trips to the gunsmith to coax it to work right.
used to be all against the glock then i bought one and i realized what a great platform it is. when you stop trying to have the latest, greatest, century old pistol and you put aside all the ninja fashion, glock is the workhorse that gets the job done. sure, sig and h&k are excellent pistols but they cost significantly more. the xd looks like a great pistol too, though i've never shot one. i've heard they worked the bugs out of the sigma and it works fine now. my buddy has one and hasn't ever had a problem, plus they're a little cheaper than a glock. me, i carry a model 23. i feel it is the perfect balance of power, capacity and size/weight. it also fits my hand well. the other nice thing about a glock is it's gonna be hard for some jackass da to make you look bad by your choice of weapon because of the number of police departments who issue them.

HK USP and USP compact
Sig 229 and 226
Steyr (somewhat obscure)
Beretta 96 and CX4
Smith 4003 and 4006
Glock 22 and 23
CZ (Various Models)
These are off the shelf, higher capacity .40ís.
The USP Compact would be my personal choice.

How about a list of non-polymer hi-cap .40s?
the non-Sigma S&Ws;
Oh, and the 1911-type .40s. By the way, those are some awfully big billboards on those STIs.

Glock 22 or 23. You can even get 29 round mags (http://www.lonewolfdist.com/products.asp?prod=6&curRecIdx=21#) for them.

Thanks for the replies. Lots of good suggestions.

ryan, those sherer mags suck. i had one for my glock and it would fail about 2 or 3 times per mag. but i bought a couple extensions from these guys (http://www.arredondoaccessories.com/A_mag.cfm?#glock) haven't had a chance to try 'em yet but they came well recommended. it also makes sense that a 20 round column should work. 30 rounds of .40 is just too much to make a magazine reliable.
