Here’s an article pulled from the GunsAmerica blog. It’s a couple years old, but it still has the major players. I have shot all the guns on this list (or variations thereof), and personally carry the last listed handgun – a Sig Sauer P320C. Were it up to me, I would have thrown the Springfield XD(M) right out the window and replaced it with the Smith & Wesson M&P9C – but that’s me.
