I was talking to a local dealer selling the Super V and they said that they have reports of the semi-version having problems being not as reliable as the automatic version as the one in their range they had to send back to the manufacture 2 times. Has anyone else seen or read reports of this ?? God Bless
Are you looking for a carry gun, or just a fun range gun? Do you have a preference on action type?
There is a Walther P-38 that is in my families gun safe. It is old, and the only pistol in there that really rivals my Springfield Loaded Target model.

Find an original series Kimber Compact Stainless. Great combination of the 4" bull barrel and an officer's frame. They were making them well back then!

Just picked up a new one this week because I couldn't pass up the deal. Sig Sauer P232 with night sights. Guy had been trying to sell it for several weeks and I turned it down at $300 two weeks ago. I offered him $225 the other day and he took it. Didn't really want it but I figured I could use it for trading or sell it and double my money. Really looking for one of the new Sig Sauer P238 Gamblers. Found several Copperheads but I guess the local dealers haven't started getting the Gamblers.
We really cannot answer your question without some more information... What do you own and what have you already considered?
I vote for the Browning Hi-Power

The para PDA in 9mm is my favorite. If you want a bigger cal, the para LDA .45. Nothing wrong with Sig, Beretta, Glock, Kahrs or 1911s, they are fine firearms and I really enjoy them, but the Para PDA and CCO are my favorites.

We're old so we can get away with that.
How bout you tell us what you already have or had? So we can help you choose.
This definitely meets all three criteria: very accurate- This gun shoots 5 rounds through a single hole @ 50 ft. using a Ransom rest.
