    I personally like Sig Sauer. They make a great piece. It is comfortable to hold, and can shoot out a dime. It will put a bullet anywhere you tell it to. Pesonally, I like it, because I shot out an Osama taget's eyes at 25 yards...the pupils, not even the white part...And I can group about 5 shots in the size of a quater...I think the 9mm is a very comfortable caliber. I can shoot hundreds of rounds, all day long, and my wrists aren't even sore.

    What company do you guys think makes the most accurate shooting semi-auto pistol, and what is your favorite target shooting caliber? For home defense I like the .45.....but that's just me... :cool:

    Oh. Boy. Here comes the herd...Gotta qualify that, duty sized, compact, competetion, factory stock, etc??
    The P210 is touted as one of the most accurate issued, single stack, single action, but when you get into competetion, it gets nuts.

    Who makes the most fuel efficient car? There are some real specialty cars out there that get over 100 mpg, but they're usually not practical for everyday driving. However for normal driving conditions, Toyota, Ford, Honda, GM, VW, lots of makers out there make good reliable cars that get similar mileage.

    Same thing with firearms accuracy. There are Camp Perry class pistols out there that you won't likely ever use on a regular basis, but most of the manufacturers make pretty good weapons. Of course the Sig you mentioned is one of the better choices, they make great firearms.

    ***Admittedly personal opinion here***

    As much as I love America and try to buy American whenever I can, I'm picky about some things. The American cars are fine, but I don't think they're up to the quality of many of the imports. Yes, my truck is American, but overall I believe Toyota, Honda, and Mercedes make better vehicles than Ford, GM, or Chrysler. By the same token, Rugers are good guns and several of my rifles and two revolvers are Rugers, but my pistols are mainly German, Swiss, Belgian, or Austrian.

    When I do get a 1911, it will be an American made gun. To do otherwise would be unamerican. John Browning's ghost would haunt me.

    I prefer the .45 myself, but I'm flexible. Better the caliber you're carrying than the one home in the safe.

    So I assume you either have a P210 or at least an X5? Even so, you are stretching the truth a little bit I.M.O. but I agree Sigs are very accurate in general. I only have a P220 and it has even impressed me with how far out I can get the holes to all connect.

    There are many accurate 9MM's made by Browning/FN, CZ, Sig, HK, tuned 1911's, S&W, etc. Most accurate? It depends more onthe shooter and what works for him/her.

    THE most accurate? Probably the Hammerli 208. Of current production guns? Feinwerkbau AW93, most likely.

    Oh.. Roddy Toyota, Jim Clark, Ed Masaki...

    Those names come to mind. I know there are a lot of other pistol smiths that make good pistols better, but those are the ones that get orders from around the world to make a pistol shoot sub 1 1/4" 45acp 50yd 10 shot groups built on 1911 foundations. The previously mentioned rimfire target pistols are quite capable of one ragged hole groups at 50yds.

    For the price, Ruger MK series target barrels, along with the Smith41, Browning Buckmark and others are quite capable of less than 1 1/2" 10 shot groups at 50yds with quality ammo.

    I'm sure there are a few, but I've never shot a 9mm or .40 that can do that.

    Clark Custom makes a very accurate .38spl, (38 wad gun) on a modified 1911 platform.

    Personally, my experience with my one Kimber is that it is more accurate than any other production semi auto I've fired over the years. (I've since tightened it up a bit more) But a Colt Gold Cup National Match should be more accurate than it. I'm sure the Kimber Team Match II's are quite accurate. But I've been impressed with SA SigP220's in the past.

    i am not a bullseye shooter, as long as i can make the hits that i need i am happy. My accuracy requirment is to be able to hit a 12ga shotgun shell at 7yds, standing 5 out of 5. i have done that with kimber grand raptors, xd's and glocks.

    I'm going to go with the Ruger Mark II Target 22LR Stainless Steel with 6- 7/8" Slab Side barrel.

    And even more so if you start to turn it into a competition piece.

    Out of all the guns i've shot the Sig 226 was the most accurate. Not my favorite design but it's a great gun .

    Last question first: 9mm ballistics are good/fairly flat out to 50 yds.

    With the right load and sights The CZ75 series with trigger work will shoot very accurately in the right hands.
    I'm sure many others listed would also give impressive groups if set up correctly.
    For me, the heavier steel guns with longer barrels work better for bullseye-type groups.

    Possum: My CZ hit 3 out of 5 at about 18-20yds and lost the coke bet to a 92F that hit 4.

    JMB sucked his last gasps of air in Liege at the FN factory because he got a better deal on production from them than Winchester. JMB wouldn't care where his guns were made as long as they were made well.

    Without a doubt it is the Hi Point. With my trusty Hi Point I can strike matches at fifteen yards. At 20 yards I can snuff out a candle and never touch the wick. And at 25 yards I can shoot a cigarette out of my wife's mouth, of course, it helps if she stands side ways. One time she didn't and it played hell with her smile.

    Most accurate

    My most accurate pistol is a High Standard Victor purchased in 1972 for $199.00. Believe it or not - I have put 5 into 1/4" at 25 yards on a regular basis with a 4 power pistol scope. I still have that magnificent pistol and doubt that I will ever find another as accurate. My tired old eyes do not permit me to repeat that feat but one of my sons can still do it. Good shooting
