    Here are my pics based on personal exprience not on what I have read. Beretta 92fs, Ruger P-95 and S&W 5906

    I think these are three of the most reliable autos ever made and I have never seen or personally heard a jam in any of them. Are there any horror stories about these guns that I am not aware of?

    What would be your picks?

    The G17 would have to be on that list...after that, you got me. Though I'd probably lay money on the P226 to make the list.

    P226, BHP and (judging by its performance in other hands with IDPA) - yep - Glock 17 (19 would also qualify).

    Actually, I've found the Taurus P92 to be very reliable, along with the 92FS.

    Glocks are up there also.

    Out of the ones I have owned, and seen on the rental range I helped run for 1.5 years, I'd say, CZ75, Glock, and Ruger, in order.
    Worst was HK USPs.....

    Most reliable

    BHP, Sig 226 and CZ 75. The Glock model 17 would be a close fourth. yf

    Not sure I'd call it a "wondernine", but I second the reliability of the Ruger P95.

    G17 is tops I think. Of course, dad's got a S&W 5906 he's put thousands of rounds through and has never had a malfunction of any sort either. Not the tightest or most accurate, but definitely trouble free.

    My top three have all been 100% reliable for me, so the tiebreakers for me come down to other factors ... Just another man's opinions ... don't mean jack, just my experience of the guns I've owned and shot a lot ... I'd rate
    SIG 226 #1 (because of accuracy)
    CZ-75 #2 (because ... well, it's cool, looks great, feels great)
    Beretta 92FS and Taurus PT-92 tied #3 (they just keep going and going)

    I've seen just a handful of broken parts on Berettas, but these were guns that had experienced tremendous abuse and shot thousands of rounds (military pistols with huge round counts) ...

    Have shot the SIG 228 through my work a bit and liked it a lot. Seems like a great pistol. Love the S&W 5906 (my first 9mm). Just don't have much experience with the Browning Hi-Power and never really warmed up to it. Owned both the Ruger P-85 and P-89 (bought 'em cheap, tried to like 'em, hated 'em). My Glocks were, yes, totally reliable, just never felt right or engendered any pride of ownership ...
