    SIG 229 because it fits my hand perfectly and I can hit with it better than any other handgun. But I usually carry and shoot Glocks--G19/G26--due to weight and the fact that Glocks are boringly reliable.

    H&K P7M8 for someone who shoots an equal amount left handed or right, there's no better semi-auto centerfire handgun out there IMO.

    Smith & Wesson 940 but since this thread is in Handguns: Autoloaders, a 9mm revolver doesn't count :) and I like a Browning Hi Power very much too, and it's not on the list.

    If money was no object, I'd be shooting 45. I prefer 45 ACP over 9mm all around. I feel 9mm is sufficient for defense and I can also shoot approximately 2.5 times as often with 9mm. That is why I shoot 9mm almost exclusively in my handguns now.

    But it is what it is and I have a child and tons of doctors/specialist/surgeons/medical crook bills. I had to save money somewhere, so I cut 45 ACP out of my diet for now. I also cut 308 out...I really hated seeing the AR10 go. Sure, I could pony up for reloading equipment and shoot 45 for less money, but by that same logic I could shoot tons more 9mm if I buy that equipment. Once I get a few medical bills and surgery bills paid off, I'll resume business as usual. But for the time being I'm strictly a 9mm guy.

    Money being an object or not, even if my last name was Trump...if I can have only one [strike]9mm[/strike] handgun it will be a glock 19. It is suitable for home defense, great at the range and I can carry it IWB in nothing more than a t-shirt and shorts during the summer.

    why not a p228?

    Gloob, the 228 will run you $400-500 more. That's a lot of money to gain 5 rounds. You could buy and carry a small 380 for under $400 and gain 7 rounds that way.

    Not true if you shop smart and have $$ ready to buy. The P6 is a $300 to $350 depending on your local market. If you look around you will find people selling the recently imported Zurich P228s. They sold in excellent condition for about $500. The ones with more wear went for as low as $440.

    So the difference is really only about $200.

    Glock 26 gen 4. Lightweight, solid, well built, small, very little to no recoil (dual spring), decent price. I like that frame better than any other subcompact frame.

    It's a toss up between my Glock 26 and my Ruger SR9c.

    H&K P-30.

    Think Mercedes.
    Yes, a Chevy will get you across the country, but wouldn't you rather be in a Mercedes?

    MY H&K has never failed to fire, the ergonomics are perfect, the grip was made for my hand (How did they know?) the slide release is the perfect length, the slide is easy to rack. It looks good.
    If it's good enough for Jack Bauer (kinda) it's good enough for me.

    my favorite 9mm

    Sig 226 blackwater Tactical or Springfield XDm. These are my two favorites and I also own G-19, G-26, 92FS, M9A1, PX4, PX4sc, XDsc, PPS, PM9, XDm 3.8. All are good guns, but the Sig and XDm are my two favorites. They fit my hand best, and I shoot them very well. That said, I find no difference in reliability with any of the 9mm's I own.

    I voted for Glock, but I like my P228 a lot, too.

    I think I'd like an H-K, but can't justify dropping a K for one.
