    The handgun that represents the finest in tactical technologies. The one built to naturaly accept all the tactical toys ever conceived. Civilian available of course...

    I dont own a true tactical marvel but I would guess a full size USP...

    Well, Since I don't tactical (or strategic for that matter) work I don't have a particular favorite tactical gun but I guess if I had to choose a pistol that will accept accessories it would either be a SIG 220 or the HK USPc

    old fashioned answer, a tuned 1911 with enough pratice to not be a danger to yourself or others.

    Of the newer generations, any P-2## series with the same caveat.

    a 5 inch Conduit barrelled Smith and wesson model 10 With fixed sights and original grip panels is the ultimate in tactical.

    D' Ulitmate? I would say either the HK Tactical or its bigger brother the SOCOM.

    HK P7M13.

    Fully ambidextrous, very accurate, very fast from holster to firing, mild recoil, same trigger pull all the time, 13+1 rounds...

    I could go on.

    They do not take the toys though, so next best would be the USP45 Tactical.

    Tactical?

    Can we assume that the word tactial implies something other than defensive?
    If so then I'll holster up the LAR in 45WM with a half dozen mags of 250 Hornady XTPs loaded to a comfortable 1300fps.
    More is most times better!

    My ultimate tactical handgun, the one that makes me feel safe when its with me, no question , Kimber Pro Carry HD, A/O Big Dot night sights, Grip tape on the front strap and after over 5000 rounds down range it runs smoooth and the trigger is perfect.

    Throw in some Wilson 8 round mags. a Surefire E2 and thats it.

    Thats the one on my belt 90% of the time.

    Second gen Glock 17 w/ Trijicon night sights, 3.5# trigger, & extended mag catch/slide stop. Better a third gen Glock 17 w/ Mep night sights, 3.5# trigger job, & extended mag catch/slide stop. I like the third gen because of the finger groves. I can due w/o the light rail. Since I like the flashlight in my hand.

    10mm

    I just bought, but have not recieved as of yet..........:mad:

    Dan Wesson "Razorback" 1911 model in 10mm. This would seem the best of both worlds.

    Stephen Camp has done a review of thier 1911 model in 45acp. It would seem they have started out on the right foot according to Mr. Camp.

    12-34hom.

    G-17 with 2 spare g-18 mags after the first 17+2 have been expended.

    If it's tactical, I don't want to be worrying about mag changes.

    If by tactical you meant what would I go through a door with? Well--either the sistema Colt or glock 30, both need night sights if they are to be tactical. During traning dim light inside homes at noon with the sun beaming it is still necessary to have them to acquire targets quickly.

    I am having one built now.
    Model 65 Smith, .357.

    4 inch barrel replaced with a factory 3 inch. Trigger stop, bobbed hammer, converted to DAO. Action job, all new springs, and cylinder play, cylinder gap, all made perfect.

    WE Birdsong is going to apply his two tone finish, like he provides for Smith&Wesson custom shop on their pro hunter 629. Hogue grips will finish the project. My gunsmith will install Tritium dots in the fixed sights. Sam Andrews will make a custom cross draw holster for me.

    I fell in love with the Model 13 some one posted on TFL, that looked a lot like this Model 65 will when it gets back to me.
