    I've owned High Powers, Semi Premium 1911's , S & W M & P's and Glocks. I've shot Sig 229's, CZ 75s, and various HK's including a the personal favorite P7. For years I was a 1911 guy convinced by gun porn and the fine shooting qualities of the Kimbers I owned (I know people knock them but mine were accurate and reliable). I had 5" Custom shop Eclipse with a Dawson light rail in my night stand and carried a CDP 4". They were tack drivers, pretty and I lusted for more. My first handgun was a Glock 23 Gen 1 which I sold when I abandoned 40 cal for .45. But along with my Kimbers I picked up a Glock 19 with a re-worked trigger that was customized a bit before our last administrations first term because I wanted a hi-cap 9 in the quiver in case another mag ban was passed.

    Anyway like many others I ran into some financial trouble during the financial meltdown, had to sell the 5" Kimber and one other thing I began to notice along the way was I shot the Glock 19 as good as my Kimbers. In drill after the Glock performed comparably. At the time better 9mm HP ammo was developed, and I was struggling financially so I sold the other Kimbers and became a Glock guy, I must admit I love my Glocks, they work, require far less investment in time and energy for cleaning, have a great aftermarket, and do what I need a gun to do which is respond if I need to deal with a bad guy. If I ever got some money I might buy another 1911 or High Power, but they would be safe queens the Glock stays on the belt. Just picked up a 19x for my nightstand gun, and have a 30SF I'm switching to 10mm for a Bear/woods gun. For me Glock is it.

    A month ago, I would have told you my Walther PPQ but I just recently bought my first CZ, a 75B SA. I have a feeling the answer to that question may soon change.

    I like soulless, utilitarian, reliable pistols with broad aftermarket support. Glock 17/19 or M&P 2.0’s for me.

    My SD9 VE is my favorite. The fit in my hand is perfect. Striker fired, no safeties to fiddle with and I like the look. Its been 100 % reliable.

    Favorite semi is H&K P30L. Egos are great. Hammer fired with a great decocker. Double/Single action. Polymer adult soze that carries like a compact but shoots like a full-size. Can’t say enough about the fit and finish and German engineering and design. Trijicon night sights. Stippled and changeable grip panels to fit your hand. Best part is I shoot it so much better than other pistols. You will too.

    CZ75 and its derivatives. Kimber, Glock, HK USP, Browning Hi-Power, all fine firearms, but CZ is hands down my favorite.

    Springfield XD service... Was my first gun, and it fits my hand better than everything I've fired since.
