    IMHO, Any 9mm Glock. 17, 19, 26, 34 they are accurate reliable and practically indesructible.

    A friend of mine said his Sig had developed pitting on the slide after daily carry use. Are the newer ones still having those problems?

    Yep, I just care about reliability for the purposes of this thread.

    Mr. Trooper, that's the one I was referring to.

    I am sad to say my Glock 34 is not up to the task. The most reliable autoloader I own is a H&K P2000 which I gave to my sister!! She moved to a crime ridden neighborhood living by herself so I gave up my best gun for her. It was my most reliable gun. Never had a faliure of any kind. My Glock has had multipule FTF's. All my 1911's have been 100% with factory ammo but the capacity was the only reason why she has the H&K.

    Check out the HK forum to see some incredible torture tests on a HK P2000 and a HK45. Seeing is believing.

    SIG. Just... Sig.
    The tests military include (most of them) is a hit by another bullet (from I don't know what diatanceand what caliber), and I sure know any polymer pistol won't stand a chance.
    I'm not saying polymer handguns are "not" good, just that they don't fit "military requirements".
    A P226 or P229 is a perfect choice, period. ;)

    EDIT:
    "While the commoners like me own G17's, I can get virtually any part to improve that platform and install it myself."

    It's a Sig.... you just buy it and it's "Perfection" right out of the box you don't have to "improve the platform".

    Glock 17, Glock 19 or a Sig 228-229 there are others that I would be comfortable with but these are the top picks. ---Bill

    Based on reputation I'd say the glock 17, although I haven't owned one so I'm not speaking from experience.

    My M&P 9mm seems to be really reliable. I trust it fully.

    beretta 92 any of them carried one of the compacts for quite a few years never a problem of any kind, when I had to give it back since we went to sig's i missed it so I got a 92FS INOX for personnel use just can't make it fail.

    be safe

    A truly mil-spec 1911. It's been tried and tested on more than a few battlefields.
