I can't be the only one. smile So many fine firearm's out there with excellent reviews. but once in your hand, and on the range, everything goes to hell in a handbasket.

For me, it's the Springfield X series. I've shot the XD. XDM and the XDS.

I literally could not hit the broadside of a barn.

Let's hear it. I know TX Killer posted up awhile back, he had the Shield, and couldn't get rid of it fast enough.

I have never been a fan of any of the double action S&W semi auto's. I have tried and sold them shortly thereafter due to my inability to fire accurate shots.

1911's of almost any ilk. I've shot colt's, kimbers, springfield. I can hit the target at 5 yards with one but, for a self-defense weapon, I would usually be winging them. Figure the cops would think I was torturing them.

XD's, M&P 9's and 40's etc. I can shoot quite well.

For me it was a Glock, just couldnt get use to the trigger pull/break. Now I can shoot better with my G26 then I can with my P226. I can rock a G17, to the point of shooting a 100 with almost 40 X ring hits during our police qual, might just be giving up the old P226

2" revolvers. I know they aren't known for their accuracy. They are what they are, but I bought one for my wife 2 years ago. At 15ft, I was hitting 1/10 on a 15"x15" piece of plywood.

You people need to spend more time with a pistol. I understand that some may not be as easy to shoot, but if you watch what you are doing, hitting a 6"x6" target at 20 yards is not hard. I have shot small carry pistols all the way to 45-70 Encores, and unless the pistol is extremely inaccurate, there is really no excuse not to hit your target. I may also add that I have shot many pistols that I really didn't like shooting, but it wasn't because I couldn't hit my target.

Had a Taurus 111 millenium pro as a truck gun. Couldn't hit jack all with it. Now glock is what I rock in the truck!

Any DAO pistol gives me fits. 100% because I do not practice enough with them. Anything with a lite crisp trigger I'm on.

I had a sig 232sl that I could never hit anything with. Of course it had to be the gun right? Let my step daughter shoot it and she was nailing it. So I sold it. Decent with the xd stuff but I found I shoot the gp100s the best.

Sums it up well. Believe Bob Munden was a perfect example of being able to shoot with any handgun.

My back up. Keltec pf9. That long hard pull throws everything off. Wish glock would produce a slim single stack 9mm.

Shoot it more often and watch your trigger control and front sight.
