For me, hard to beat the M&P line.  Tried others, keep coming back.  Also, while sexy, historic, and classic, just cannot make myself rely on 1911's.  As far as 45's go, my M&P full size 45 is 99.99% reliable.

This question is tough. I like them all for their purpose. The only disappointment I've had is with a G19. I'm actually a Glock fan and have a 22 and 23. I think they shoot great. The G19, not so much. I've worked on the trigger to make it smoother, the ejector to help reduce the amount of case to face impacts. 

Still unimpressed. Perhaps I just like the .40 better. Perhaps I got a lemon.

I like my Bersa Thunder and my Model 85 a lot and my only want now is a Bersa Thunder Plus. I like the idea of have 15 rounds instead of 7 and I guess my Model 85 spoiled me on that idea. If I run up on a Thunder Plus at a price I can afford I will probably buy it..............JMHO

I'm totally satisfied with every pistol I own.  Whether it be the Ruger Mk II .22, my Colt Government Model, my Sigs, Smiths, Springfields and even the 2nd Gen Glock 22 that I thought I just had to have 30 plus years ago.  Probably the only Glock I will ever own as I'm without a doubt not a fan of them.  The one thing I would like to find are some of those magazine they use in the movies.  You know, the ones that fit flush to the bottom of the magwell but they hold like 100 or more rounds, yeah those!  Surely they exist but apparently just the bad characters and a few good ones have access to them.

I've been happy with every pistol I have.  However there's always one more I need to acquire.

Which one?  I am with my 1911.  Same with my S&W 19. Small carry guns I have not yet been 100%.  There is always something about all of them.  The current one is a Bersa UC9. Grip length is perfect. Overall length is good. Price and reliability get an A+. Weight is acceptable but it's too fat because it's a double stack. I prefer DA/SA and I want something with enough grip that all my lower 3 fingers get a good hold. This is why the new XD-E is something I want to check out.

That's what I was thinking. I'm happy with a whole bunch of mine.

While none are perfect, I'm happy with how all of them do what I want/need them to do.

The ones I was not happy with eventually made me happy by trading for something better!  :-)

My G19 serves me very well.  It could just as easily be an M&P or an FN, but I went with Glock because they offered the most bang for the buck at the time.  If I had to do it all over again I'd probably still choose Glock, but I'd still look at other brands.  I'm not loyal to Glock, but right now it is the best platform for my needs. 

 

Now I just need a smaller gun for CCW use with tucked in shirts and slacks because that has been happening more an more lately.  I'm thinking Kahr.    

 

The only handgun I had that didn't serve me well was my 1911 because it was just too pretty to use seriously.  I couldn't bring myself to mess up that deep blue finish so I sold it to someone that wanted a safe queen.

I own 2 1911's and a Glock 19.  Both 1911's are RIA mfg, a full-size Rock Ultra bought new, and a TAC II CS, both in 9mm.  Only change I made was to replace both front sights with a narrower FO from Dawson, and added an extended safety to the CS.  Both have been flawless in their operation through several thousand rounds.  No need to change anything else.  The Glock 19 has been trouble free as well.  The factory sights were scrapped for a set of Warren-Sevigny Tacticals, and the trigger group was replaced with a complete custom kit from DK Custom Triggers.  The only thing I don't care for is the grip angle.  If I could give it the same angle as the 1911 it would fit me a lot better, but unfortunately I can't.

I am completely satisfied with my choice(s)

So much so, I haven't found replacements for them (yet)

Being a Walther fan, I have a PPQ 40 S&W, PPS M2 9mm, 100% satisfied with both. No changes needed.

My primary handguns are Beretta M9/92FS. Very pleased with them and their performance. My secondary are the Canik TP9 series. Premium function at an economy price. 

My carry pistol is a M&P 9 shield.

Happy with everything I have. I've stippled and dremeled but I always come back to a factory frame. Just had my 19's frame replaced and I couldn't be happier. For me the stippling and dremeling was a fad. I honestly did that because I got bored and was trying to solve problems I didn't have. Just add a set of sights, a holster, and mag pouches and I'm good to go.

I have a love/hate relationship with my Glock 19s.  I hate that I love them so much.  But I do.  They work great for me, carry easily, have a decent mag capacity, are reliable and parts are as ubiquitous for them as they are for a Chevy 350 engine.  You can damn near buy Glock accessories at the local Quickie Mart with a Slushie and a full tank of gas for your ride.

I have several others that are always vying for attention, though.  HK VP9, Sig P320 and M&P 2.0.

I think Peejman hit the nail on the head. They all serve their purpose, otherwise they wouldn't be sitting in the safe or on my belt.

Love my .357 wheel gun.  It could be a little smaller/lighter, otherwise, extremely happy.  I could have opted for one of the DAO light allow models to save on weight, but I like my tank.

Yes I am completely happy as I really love my Ruger SR9C but have and will continue to rely on my Bersa's, Glock's, S & W's etc etc. I love and rely on all my firearms for one reason or another.

      Hi all. Recently started becoming interested in the reflex red dots and bought the Walther Q5 Match and mounted a Vortex Venom on it. I took it out to the range on two occasions now along with a few other 9mm of mine. 
      First, about the pistol:
      - Great striker fired pistol. I own dozens of guns and only two are polymer, this and my Springfield XDS 3.3. I have shot many, however. Best striker trigger out of the box that I have fired. Granted it’s not my Kimber Aegis Elite but that’s not expected. 
      - Nice balance in my hand. Comfortable grip. 
      - Holy muzzle flip. Not an issue for slow shooting but follow up shots take some work. 
      - Flawless operation out of the box. Can’t say that about a lot of new guns I’ve purchased in the last year sadly. (Looking at you Ruger and S&W)
      The sight mounted easily with the number one plate included with the Walther. It came with three different mounting plates. 
      I had been practicing dry fire and presentation with the sight and find the dot very easy to find. No issues with “searching”. While this is my first sight of this nature, I do have a rail mounted Browning Red Dot on two Buckmarks.
      I used the sight in “auto” mode and found the brightness very good for the range I visit. It was easy to zero in. 
      Shooting with the dot:
      I shot this gun today along with my Beretta M9A3. At close range I found my Beretta much easier to group nicely and tighter. Close range is 5-7 yards. 
      Beyond that, out to 25 yards, is where I saw the huge benefits on the dot. It improved my accuracy tremendously compared to the open sights of the Beretta (a gun I have tens of thousands of rounds experience with). My goal is to continue practicing speed and accuracy with the optic mounted pistol at the closer ranges. My confidence at longer ranges has gone through the roof with it!

      Is there any dealers in the tri-cities area that stock Glock 48 night sights?
    • By CBOW

      I found a really good deal on a DW Guardian in .38 super locally. I have been searching for a Guardian in 9mm for awhile and haven’t been able to find one. I Have never shot .38 super. Would it be a good carry round? I’m assuming it’s way more expensive than 9mm. Wonder if you could swap barrels and bushing to 9mm if you wanted
