    L Frame Smiths in wheel guns for me. Unless it is for carry then a three inch round butt K Frame is about as good as it gets...!

    No Walthers on the list?

    I love my PPQ. I couldn't hit a volkswagon at 10m with it but its still a beatifuly engineered little pistol and has been super reliable and unfussy with ammo.. The accuracy is most definatel me and not the gun.

    There wasn't enough polling room for it by itself, but I did include it with others in one spot. I don't think I could have displaced any of the others for Walther, sorry. You could vote where it is listed with FN and others or just vote for Glock, since it is just a repackaged glock clone with the same trigger safety, but a higher bore axis. lol

    I have a PPK, but it really can't hang with a P365. The Walther wins on looks, but the SIG beats it in capacity, power, and weight.

    The ppk is iconic though

    Hard to say. I love my 1911 pattern guns, but I have a CZ75 Shadow that is wonderful, and a Colt King Cobra stainless that makes my manties drop every time I pull it out. I also have a 629 Stealth Hunter that is not stock, that is a pleasure to shoot, but a bitch to clean.

    fWIW my carry gun is a Colt Wiley Clapp Commander that is not stock.

    A P365 is my next handgun since my Les Baer 6” 10mm fund got rolled into a ‘new carpet on the 2nd floor’ fund.

    Mine's the Archer version (stainless), not the Bond (blued).

    I will probably get a P365 XL just because I like the platform but that 15 round mag just looks silly. It may feel great in the hand though.

    I can get a glock 43x for $350, but looks like the sig p365 is $500. Seems like a lot more for not much difference.

    The Glock 43 seems a good choice to me. Glock reliability, 9mm Single stack, light weight, (7) round magazine with the extension, and nice hold with the Talon Grips, Night Sights. A nice piece. I have the Talo edition shown. A lot of firepower from a small pistol.

    That is an excellent pistol!
    I shot my cousins. At 25 yards she was dead on!
    The mag with pinky extension makes all the difference imo.

    That's a nice price for a Glock 43, if you can get it. At the store where I bought my SIG Sauer P365, the Glock 43 NS was about $30 more.

    On line the glock is $50 cheaper, but my price is under $400

    As much as I enjoy the .45 Wilson SDS, I'm not sure I can prefer it to my P7 PSP as a carry gun. Yes, the P7 weighs a ton for its size; yes, the mag is tiny and the mag release's location feels very odd at first; yes, its prone to piston fouling and overall its more complicated to work on than my swiss watch. But the thing is an absolute tack driver with 147g golden sabers, and for whatever reason it draws, presents, and fires better than anything else I've ever held.

    In terms of handguns that will see outdoor use rather than concealed carry, I still use the same full size USP I bought the day I turned 21. It was well worn when I bought it, and it just works every time no matter how dirty and/or wet it may be.

    I just saw that too. Taking a very successful concealed carry pistol and making it larger - I'm not sure I understand that. :confused:

    A blued 4" Ruger Security Six was my first handgun, purchased in ~1975. I later sold it and bought a stainless steel 6" Security Six - I still have it, and it is very accurate.
