Re: Best Auto Pistol for CCW
"ain't no hammer on a brick, either"
Sums up my feelings, and nicely!
I'm old, and many, if not most, of my guns are too. A hammer seems such a nice thing to have, in "standing down" a weapon, because there is some element of control, with it, and none, without.
Personal carry choice, a Colt "Officer's Model, Enhanced", with some 'detail work', after the fact.
Because it fits me, suits me, and is the weapon I know best, as a type.
If and when I find a gun I can consistantly draw and fire, in under a second, and accurately, besides the 1911, I will certainly consider it.
Second gun: the lightest 5 shot Smith I can find; likely in .38 Spl, and likely, in my pocket!
