    Since Glock came out with the G17, the choices got a lot tougher.

    There are the XD series, then the USP series. Walther has the P99 series. Kahr has the P9 series, Beretta now has the PX4 series.

    I am partial to the FNP-9 (not the FNP-45, too big).

    Walthers tend to fit my hands nicely, but all of the ones you mentioned work just fine.

    I would say Smith & Wesson M&P line.

    Based on success - Glock.

    Based on quality - Hk USP

    Based on personal preference - SigPro

    The P99 is a teriffic fit for my hands. The PX4 is the most pleasing to the eye.

    Glock is still the one.

    Abundant spare parts--cheap
    Easy to fix by yourself
    Cheap magazines
    Durable--rust resistant

    Nothing else comes close.

    Nothing says quality, taste, refinement, and superior breeding like a Hi-Point.:)

    HK - there are several polymer-framed product lines and a huge number of model variants with different combinations of features (DA/SA, DAO, LEM, decocker, manual safety, etc.). Choice is good.

    Glocks don't do anything for me and although I like the feel and features of the xd series but they just look terrible.

    I really like the m&p line from smith. The slide stop is well placed, the cocking serrations are awesome, and they're slim.
    I've currently got an m&p 45 on order, so we'll see how it goes.

    Based on overall: history, performance, and reliability I have to say ..... 'G' something. (What is that word, again?) ;)

    You can't do better than Beretta's PX4 Storm! It's an awesome gun!

    HK gets my vote for the same reasons. HK is more innovative than Glock.

    Sorry Glocksters,

    I had a Glock, now I have a SA XD. It fits my hands much better.

    HK. I think they are more innovative, and the ergonomics are better than most (P30 & HK45)
