The thing is everything is a trade off. 9mm's are usually smaller and lighter (as is the ammo) and higher capacity). I have one in particular I carry with regularity. But the bottom line for me my answer to your question is my NightHawk GRP (.45 ACP). Weapon just works every time, no matter what. Most accurate 1911 I've had in my 57 year old life. I wouldn't want to be on the receiving end. I'm pretty sure the dispute would be over. No- I don't work for them:)

I would stay with my HK USP Tactical in .45. Never had a problem with it or with the 9mm version.

My gen 2 Glock 19. I wouldn’t even think twice about it. I have, and have had in the past a lot of pistols. Some I “like” better then my 19, but if I could only have one my G19 would be it.

I am not going to lie. When the Zombie's attack i will have an ample amount of ammo for my gen 3 Glock 22. It has done me well.

Glock 22 gen 3. Utterly reliable, good ammo capacity, 40 cartidge for knock down power, and not too big, so you could possibly carry it.

Just bought a Walther PPQ. Best striker fired trigger I have ever felt and Walter reliability. Plus the reset is amazing. If it proves to have Glock-like reliability I may give it the nod, the trigger is amazing.

You asked a simple question and got 190 answers. This is the best answer, go with an expert you trust or the expert at your gun shop. Go through all the weapons and find the one that fits you best. You didnt say what if was for, but that you want one handgun. I used to love Glocks. But after years of not having one, I went to the gun shop and went through and tested all the ones they would let me test. To my surprise I fell in love with a Baretta 92FS INOX. It fit my hand, and it was the best one on the range for me. Its not what I though would happen but at the time it was the best one for me. Go to the shop, put them all in your hand, test fire what you can and see what makes you feel the best. That will be the best weapon for you.

Sig 226 since 96. Any glock a very close second. I had a Colt King Cobra in the 80's that gives me very fond memories.

Had some good experiences with Sig. Been carrying a 229 for a few years and pretty happy with the weapon.

Realistically a Glock 17.

Although, if ammo wasn't an issue and all I could own is one pistol, why not a FiveseveN? FN makes a decent pistol, and that round is pretty versatile. Capacity is great too. 100yds out of a pistol. Why not?

Never met a quality 9mm or larger caliber I could not punch holes pretty close to where I wanted them to be at 100 yards. easy peasy.

Recent vetting experience has given the stock rear sight on the Glock a slight edge on the stock Sig 226 (1996 model) rear sight. I seem to be able to get the sight lined up just a hair faster. Guess I need to change out my rear sight.
