I love my Glock, but it's not the best. Fit my budget though. Probably buy a Kimber if i had a little more to spend.

glock, "perfection". the kimber police models are not as good and their 1911's have feed problems in .40. the glock is the most accurate and dependable .40 available for the money.

The best one is the one that fits your hand well and is level when you bring it up on target...
Glock 22 or 23 should be your best bet!!!

My Glock 22 is great but it is a little large for convenient concealed carry unless I can wear a coat.

I agree with rudyglove. find one that fits your hand and fits you. for me the best gun right now is the cheapest while still maintaining quality. check out the S&W sigma series my dad has one in .40. not the best looking or most comfortable but all in all a great gun for under 300 and it fits him well

I wouldn't have another Sigma if it was a gift. Find one that's comfortable and "points" naturally for you. I love my Sig 226.

I have a sigma and it has always served its purpose. It isn't winning any beauty contests and the trigger is very heavy, but i have never had a miss fire from gun failure. Beside you don't realy want a hair trigger on a handgun for home protection.

It is personal preference as to what you like best most manufacturers make good high quality weapons. My 1st choice is Glock--I currently have a Glock 23 (also have a 19 which is 9mm). My 2nd choice which I am looking very favorably at for my next purchase is the XD.

I don't own one and I'm a die-hard 1911/.45 person, but if I were to have a .40 I'd go Sig without a doubt.

from DakotaMan wrote 4 years 12 weeks ago

I don't shoot a .40 either (a 1911/.45 Kimber fan too) but my niece who is a Federal Agent swears by her Glock in .40 S&W and so do most of her associates. It shoots, reloads very reliably and is relatively light to carry. Most of the .40 S&Ws at the ranges I inhabit are Glocks too. For the most part though, these are people who have to carry it 7x24 (weight is an prime concern) and whose lives depend on it (no malfunctions). You can get great pistols from Kimber, Sig, etc. if you don't mind paying more money for it. I think you might get more accuracy too.
