Try Smith and Wesson's M&P line of semi autos. They are great. I have over 10 thousand rounds through an M&P 40 full size, with no failures except those due to using very crappy ammo. I also have around 3,500 rounds through and M&P 40 compact with no failures either.

I know, that even in the event that my government passes a law banning guns, that they shan't be able to take them from me. The simple reason for this, is that once that law is passed, it makes me, a law abiding citizen, a criminal. And criminals don't pay any mind to laws.
