    I have owned multiple XDs with many other brands in between. I currently have a XD-M in .40 and have no intentions of ever letting this one go. I am even thinking of getting another one in 9mm.

    My favorite polymer frame pistol happens to be my only one, a Glock G34 9mm. I purchase it new in Nov 08, and have pushed close to 1000 rounds thru it so far. had 2 failed to chamber rounds both with Remmington UMC green box. If the Walther p99 came with a longer barrel I would seriously consider it, but my next one is likely to be the FN 57.

    for me, glock, springfield, and s&w all tie.

    I voted glock though, because it's what I currently have. although I did have an M&P, and getting an xd for the wife.

    Keltec is also runner up

    Since you didn't specifically ask what aspect of the polymer pistol made it our favorite, I voted for the one that feels best in my hand; which would be the Steyr M9. I own and have used any number of polymer pistols, including Glock, H&K, Taurus, Kahr, and KelTec, and handling the Steyr is like placing my hand in a custom made glove. It's just that good of a fit for me.

    What's great is there are so many good choices. In my mind, the M&P and the XD are tied for best overall, and that's taking cost into consideration. I haven't tried an XDm yet ... could sway me to picking a single winner, I dunno.

    Glock is never gonna be a bad choice, but I do think the M&P and XD designs are more refined and user-friendly. Whether they're as tough when dragged through hell is another question. As long as you've got a few spare trigger springs on hand, the Glock is probably the best SHTF handgun choice.

    I voted for my first pistol, a USP, but really I think we should have gotten two choices, maybe three, and I don't see FN on there...



    I love my FNP-9m, it's one of my favorite pistols, light, perfectly sized for carry, and the sights line themselves up for me. Oh and it has never malfunctioned.

    Springfield XDM, 19+1. Gotta love that. And it's an easy gun to shoot well.

    Points well, really easy to shoot, not too bulky for a 13+1 pistol in a real caliber.

    It's damned ugly, but so are all the others.

    It's a close call between my H&K USP 9mm and my S&W M&P 9mm. I voted for the Smith because it was certainly a better value!

    Both have been utterly reliable, accurate and comfortable/fun to shoot.

    I'd have to say that my G26 is my current fav. But honorable mention would have to go to my HK p9s (.45)!
