    Hard to argue the 1911 reliability... Affordability?? Not so much. I am sure Nighthawks are very well made pistols. However, unless you are in a much higher tax bracket, they are not very affordable. Are they as tough and rugged as a Glock? Maybe. I cannot argue that the 1911 pistol is a great gun. However if you want to buy one that is American made, prepare to cough up a lot of cash. Especially for the so called "custom" pistols. Volkmann, Wilson Combat, Nighthawk, Rock River Arms, Caspian, etc.. etc... etc.. any of these will cause you to take out a second mortgage.

    the xd is cheaper than the glock and it comes with holster and mag carrier, and just as reliable.

    I prefer a double action semi auto like a cz75b, hk 45 usp, or any sig. These guns have great double single action triggers.

    i also have glocks thier grate guns with decent triggers.

    Would have to say my two Taurus 24/7 Pros, 9mm & 45acp.With well over 7000 rounds in both,I have yet to have any problems with either one.

    Glock, the ultimate combat handgun. Simply point and shoot. No safety levers, magazine disconnect and other junk added to the gun. All your Glock needs is a good sturdy holster and remember the number one safety rule. Don't put your finger on the trigger until ready to shoot.

    When choosing a firearm that my life and the lives of others may depend on, I don't want the word "cheap" to be a word that describes the firearm.

    I have had experience with many different firearms. I find the XD a good piece of equipment, though not my first choice for a defensive firearm.

    You can't beat a Glock for dependability. Not the fanciest gun around but they always go bang. IMAO.

    I'd say "the best gun for you" is the one you can realistically afford, effectively control and score vital hits with.

    Ideally, if that same gun provided you all kinds of versatility, easily accessable and affordable, quality accesories, then that's a huge "+1" in the "best gun for me" category.

    Train and train a lot, with whatever it is.

    Same here. Can't say enough good about that gun. Here's a link to an honest review:

    I third Glockster 20, Plus I have yet to own one but, I have developed a fondness for just about every CZ 75 I have had the chance to lay my hands on. It's the next item to add to the collection for me.
