I like a good 1911. The S&W versions have impressed me with their quality. My Sig 226 is another favorite as well as several N frames in 44 and 357 mag. These are all my favorites and if forced to pick one it would be the adjustable sighted S&W 1911.
But if things go bad, one of the Glocks is what I'm reaching for. I don't like em as well, but I trust them more.
