If your asking about about a poly striker gun? I would likely equate that to single ply toilet paper. Works yet far from a favorite thing to use.
If I was forced to pick a favorite in my safe (10 striker handguns). I guess I'd go with Kimber Evo. I cannot really pick some of my glocks that have virtually zero stock parts.
the DA/SA Walther P99 AS.
I bought this very ergonomic, striker-fired gun because it is designed to Decock into Double Action.
Most of you might really enjoy carryiing it in SA, with what they claim is an excellent trigger pull and reset. I never pay attention to any trigger reset or refined features except DA stacking and smoothness; my first carry gun was a Makarov in .380
I wanted to handle a “first” Steyr 9mm but nobody had any avail. On Armslist or in our stores about two years ago.
Oh, dude, that thing is like 3 times the size and 6 times the price of an FN 1900. Sure, 8mm Roth Steyr is a real wall-banger of a cartridge, but a lot of people just don't want to deal with the recoil. That's why it's fading out and 32 ACP is growing by leaps and bounds. And stripper clip loading? Please. Why not just get a Broomhandle and pretend you're Winston Churchill?
And that brings up another point: Real men aren't afraid of safety catches. I know that's not "PC" to say out loud, but it's not like we're a bunch of snowflakes here.
It is compact enough to carry and large enough to shoot well.
I would like to see Springfield make the compact in 10mm to compete with the Glock 29.
Picking one…. Gen 5 Glock 19
The S&W M&P 45acp is my second favorite. Likewise with the large grip panels, and it has good sights and trigger, never malfunctions... etc. It's a nice pistol.
The Glocks are okay. I own several. I would feel comfortable with any of them for SD. To me the trigger is kinda "meh": It works okay for me, but I don't love it.
Walther PPQ M2 by Tallball posted Dec 21, 2018 at 6:19 PM
I liked it enough that I bought a P45, and eventually a CW380. Carry the P45 sometimes in the winter.
Owned a couple Glocks, an XD, LCP and so on, never bonded with any of them.
It is fully ambidextrous, accurate (fixed barrel), easy to disassembly and clean (1-button takedown), and the safest semiauto service pistol available (remains uncocked until ready to shoot, uncocks automatically if dropped)
If you meant polymer, that would be a S&W M&P9 with Apex Tactical action set and barrel. My easiest to shoot based on pointability and accuracy.
The current striker fired pistol I'm working into my battery is the SIG P320 base on the ability to switch between different length/sizes of slide and frames. It points almost as well as the M&P and might be a touch more accurate. It might not qualify as an answer for your question as I've recently added a tungsten infused grip module to it
Most Used: every 9mm and 10mm Glock
Least Favorite: Sig P320
Mainly due to the fun switch on the stock. I wish I could have brought it home from Germany.
S&W M&P Shield I have 3 of them .45,9mm and .22
I had to do a search to learn about this pistol. Interesting. Very innovative design.
It was your comment a while back that made me start this thread. You own a lot more pistols than I likely ever will. While I like striker fired pistols, hammer fired pistols, revolvers, etc. I don't have the time & financial means to buy or rent everything that is out there so your comment piqued my curiosity.
Another pistol I had to do a search on to learn about. Interesting stuff.
This is yet another pistol I have neither handled or shot that I find myself intrigued by because it can be carried either S/A or DA/SA.
