I like my Desert Eagle 357. It is a little heavy, but I used to be able to get a foot and a half foot pattern at a hundred yards with it with open sights. It also can have a scope attached to it, but I do not need anything more accurate than that, if deer hunting I could get a deer at fifty yards pretty easily. It isn't a pea shooter though, not something a woman would want to carry in her purse.

It is also pretty pricey now, I got it with a case and extra clip back in about ninety for five hundred bucks.

Give the Canik TP9SFX a peek.

Absolutely love it, and hard to beat for the price.

If you haven't, try to find a range where you can rent and try them all. One will probably stand out as your favorite for reasons your eye cannot anticipate.

I really really love my Smith & Wesson M&P Shield in .40 even comes with a built in green laser, and is nice and compact, packs a punch and its a great shooting sidearm

Shoulder rig on that FNX maybe? It is what you have to do if you want to run around with a M9.

Make sure you look at the new Springfield hellcat, 9mm compact. I just got one 2 weeks ago and it is flipping awesome! It is the same size as a walther p22, and it shoots amazing, and the sights are really nice.

The grip is super nice, and it holds 13+1.

Meh, on most of that list. Have you actually held or shot any of them?

Out of that list the P226 is the only one I'd buy. I don't like striker fired pistols. Hammer fired is the only thing I'd ever carry as far as a pistol goes.

I would second the notion about the Canik TP9. Out of all the striker fired pistols that's the one I like the most.

If I could sway you to go hammer fired, again I would say go with the P226. Navy Seals did a heck of a lot more than torture tested them and were happy with it, and if it's good enough for special forces it's good enough for you.

I actually prefer the Beretta M9A3. Awesome trigger, smooth action, slide slides like hot butter. I've put thousands of rounds through mine and haven't had a single malfunction. Overall I like the M9s and 98s.

Check out the HK 45 it's a pretty nice gun, and if you're dead set on striker fire the HK VP9 is a pretty sweet shooter.

I could do a better job of recommending you a gun if you could give me more information.

Is this a daily carry? Holster selection could be difficult or easy depending on the gun.

Is this for around the home?

Is this for a SHTF situation?

Do you live in California?

Do you want single stack or double stack? Magazine size can vary from six to eight rounds to 12/15/17 or 20+

Do you want to be able to put aftermarket sights on it? Lights? Lasers? I honestly don't care about lights or lasers, but to each their own. Just know that aftermarket sights and lasers will limit you on holster options.

If this is for home defense or SHTF I'd suggest a "pistol" like the Scorpions or such.

Lemme know. I'd rather suggest something that works for you and is what you want than have you get a thread full of opinions.

For CCW, Springfield XDS 45 ACP with Crimson Trace green laser.
Right hip, Glock 21 45 ACP with LaserMax Green guide rod laser, Trijicon raised sights with Green RMR.
Alternate Right hip/ Chest rig, Springfield 1911 45 ACP TRP Operator with Crimson Trace Green grip laser.
My 2 cents.

The Sig 320 gets high marks but I carry the Ruger 38 Special LCR. It packs a punch and will stop the dead.

Get a Glock you can't go wrong with that. So many aftermarket parts for them it will make your head spin. Night sights, get a 3.5 pound trigger, and an extended slide release and you have taken an already amazing firearm and make it incredible.

I daily carry my Gen 5 Glock 19. Makes my comfy knowing I have 16 total rounds to sling at someone when I need it. Get a 9mm cant go wrong with the stopping power and cheapness of ammo.

Also, look into the Springfield XDM 9mm great gun as well.

Big fan of my M&P .40 full size...basically a glock copy made in America. I have been looking into a compact and also really like the feel of the Shield .40. Would recommend S&W any day of the week!

I'm a 1911 fan, myself... my advice: shoot what feels comfortable...

Just promise the rest of us, that you won't be the moron to buy a .410 revolver.

Unless you have snakes... thousands and thousands of snakes...

Apologies for the poor formatting

More info would be nice; experience, CCW, home defense only, what do you want to do with it?
9mm are easier to shoot than 40's especially follow up shots, 40's have more muzzle flip which can effect double tap accuracy. You need to train a little harder with a 40 than a 9. You may already know all this just thought I'd throw it out there.

All those guns are good guns. I like the Glock 27 (40 sub-compact) and for home defense the 1911 style is hard to beat and fun to shoot.
