Re: Best Auto Pistol for CCW
Terry - No machine is 100% reliable.
I see more failures on 1911 type pistols at IDPA matches than all others combined. IMHO this usually is a lack-of-maintenance or hand loading problem. I know a lot of guys do their own gun smithing and this causes a lot of problems as well.
Second is Wheel Guns. This is usually caused by amateur gun smithing as well.
The bottom line is carry what you have confidence in and hope you never need to use it.
Shoot Straight and often.
