For me it's got to be the 1911. Yes, the Beretta is current military issue for routine (if you'll pardon the expression) combat and rear echelon units, but the real high-speed. low-drag outfits still use 1911s. On the civilian side, while there are Beretta lovers, the Beretta has nowhere near the number of devotees that the 1911 does. Glock? Hardly "America's sidearm." No matter how many are in use, they are Austrian, not American, and they are regarded by many who use them as a commodity, just something to be used because it's there and it's affordable (or because the department issues it). There is really nothing about the Glock to qualify it as "America's sidearm."
