This is a stupid question, but I'm asking it more to get other's ideas rather than have you all decide for me. I'm thinking of my ideal pistol and these are the characteristics I've come up with: Full-sized frame with at least a 4.5" long barrel Short trigger length for my short fingers (or available after-market mods to make it that way) Same weight trigger pull every time Alloy or steel frame - no plastic (but see below) 9mm to .45 ACP (prefer .40) as long as it holds more than 10 rounds Available rimfire conversion kits Major, reliable manufacturer Cost no more than $1,000 Based on these characteristics, I've come up with the following guns: CZ 75B .40S&W Browning Hi-Power 1911-type gun Glock 35 Glock 20 The reason I list the glocks (even though they don't make all the criteria), is that's my current platform. I've liked glocks but they don't give me the same pride in ownership I think I would have with the others. I know I have too much time on my hands and I should spend more time shooting and less time thinking, but I thought I would at least get other's opinions. Thanks!
