Best for what?

Since I used handguns predominantly for 'social' purposes, all of these are sidearms and are rated in my experience related to my experiences with their reliability.

Glock 17
Glock 19
Glock 20
Glock 22
SIG P226
SIG P228
Beretta 96D NP3
S&W 642
S&W 696

None of these weapons has ever failed me, except for cases of operator error. I've carried each fopr extended periods of time, either off or on duty. Most have significant end-use with large active police or military forces. This list assumes that the pistols are properly fed and maintained--an idiot can make the best weapon in the world malfunction, or hamstring it's efficiency by feeding it unsuitable ammo for the intended use.

The BHP and SIGs are down on my list due mainly to minor magazine and finish problems (rust, etc.). The Beretta is down due to large size and weight for what it delivers, and the Smiths are down for low capacity and high perceived recoil.

Well let's see

This is only eight. But I've only been seriously into shooting/collecting firearms the last 6 yrs.

Taurus 444 Raging Bull 44 mag.
Kimber Custom .45 acp
Glock 23
Glock 17
Taurus PT92 9mm
Ruger sp101 .
Beretta Tomcat .32 acp
Ruger Mark 2 ..22LR

More than likely number 9 will be the S.W. M&P 40 cal shot a buddies recently and liked the feel. Number 10 shall be either the spingfield xd 5" .45 acp or the xd sub compact 3" 9mm. For right now i get pretty good preformance out of what i already have.......

It'll never happen. Guns are like golf clubs; one doesn't do everything. I guess I'll have to just list them in order of overall quality.

1-Glock 34
2-Glock 19 (Top CCW gun)
3-Glock 17
4-Glock 22
5-Glock 26 (Most easily concealed)
6-Glock 23
7-XD9
8-Colt Trooper MK3 (Most accurate)
9-Beretta 92
10-Taurus PT92 (15,000+ rounds, only two malfunctions, both fault of the ammo)
