Which handgun is America's sidearm?

I find the 1911 an elegant, brilliant, design that is somewhat outdated for actual combat use. I can think of no gun more deserving for the title "America's handgun", though, except maybe any of a variety of Smith & Wesson .357 revolvers. After all, if we're taking into consideration the 1911s immense service life, we shouldn't forget the 60-70 years that a .38 or .357 six-shooter was the staple sidearm.
