That is a tuff one for me. I love the sig p226 9mm ver., black finish, night sights. Fits great in my hand and fires fantastic.

But, I also love Glocks too, whether its a 9, 40 or 45. Glock makes some beautiful and fantastic guns. The only bad thing is on Chicago (police) you can't carry a Glock as a duty weapon.

What is your favorite handgun?

My Ruger P95. Oh wait... I cant hit jack with it.

Actaully... this is a great post, since I am in the market for a new handgun...

My friend's Sigma 9, and my Nephews Colt 1911 both feel pretty good and tend to be more accurate than my Ruger... I considered both of those.

I'm interested in your comments here, it might help me make a decision.

Just going by what I've personally shot before, either a 9mm Browning Hi-Power, or my old Beretta 92FS. I'm partial to SA or SA/DA handguns. Not too crazy about DA-only.

The pictures are not from me, but I have the very same model, a Colt Special Combat Government. Only difference is I have Novak night sights. If it aint a Colt, it's just an imitation.

Maybe it's just me, but I find a .45 ACP revolver to be a bit humorous. :)

Oh come on...the little moon clips are cute :rofl:

I'm not sure of why someone would want one though with a .45 Colt being available with pretty much the same ballistics..perhaps even a bit better. :confused:

Well, there are a couple of reasons...

My pistols, are not really for sport. I had a sport pistol, a Les Baer, but I sold it in order to fund my Colt.

Reason for a .45 ACP revolver instead of say, a magnum caliber is first of all, muzzle flash. In the dark, or even in the light, the muzzle flash is enough to cause temporary blindness. Even loads that don't cause so much muzzle flash...

Overpenetration. The biggest reason. Magnums go through walls, and hits the granny next door. Even with hollow points, it just goes through the man. So a magnum caliber would be most effective... If the guy has a vest on. Otherwise, magnum calibers are still the ideal choice for hunting (I don't hunt).

Sound. A .357 magnum is a loud snapping noise in a small room like your living room compared to the outdoors, or even a small indoor range. A .44 magnum is something else also. I just find it extremely disturbing. The recoil on a .44 mag is controllable, but not a self-defense pistol. Neither is the .357.

I stick with my .45. My 9mm's when I go a bit lighter. I keep the revolvers in my house as my self-defense pistols indoors, for reasons of reliability. I would trust my life with any one of these pistols, but hell, I can drive a semi-truck over my revolvers and they will still work without a problem.

I think he was more talking about the name issue, 45 Automatic colt pistol.
