    Cant really beat any H&K pistol in this category in terms of reliability, accuracy, and firepower

    Well, that is kind of broad, but my top five choices for defensive duty (not combat, since I am also too old and fat for that):

    -Beretta M9A1 9x19mm w/ Trijicon Night Sights and Factory "D" Hammer Spring

    -Glock 19 RTF2 9x19mm w/ Trijicon Night Sights (my duty gun is a 23 RTF2, but if I could choose I would go with 9mm over .40 S&W)

    -Glock 21SF RTF2 .45 ACP w/ Trijicon Night Sights (there were a couple of RTF2 SF 21s, I have yet to locate one for a reasonable price)

    -Ruger SP101 2 1/4 DAO .357 Magnum

    -S&W 686 CS-1 3" Round Butt .357 Magnum
    -Landric

    Gunthorp, I believe in the Civil War you might want the 1860 Colt Army in .44 or possibly the more robust, solid frame 1858 Remington New Army in .44. The 1851 Colt Navy was only manufactured in .36 caliber, though reproductions available today are often in .44. However, the massive Colt Dragoon models were available from 1849 on in .44 with longer cylinders, hence more powder behind the ball. In terms of firepower and sheer brute force, check out the LeMat.

    Sand Box - M9
    Current or future dynamic engagements with my choice,
    RH: 5" Series 70 GC
    LH: 4 1/4" Series 80 CC
    BUG: 3" CDP

    (These are listed because I have them, but you put anything in my hand, and I'll be glad to warm it up.)

    I believe the "Dragoons" were first available in late 1847 with the Colt Whitneyville-Hartford Dragoon, AKA the "Transition Walker."




    Colt's First Model Dragoon was manufactured 1848-1850, for what it's worth.

    I'd say the glock 9mm because of the 33 round magazine option. 33 rounds of +P Speer Gold dots will take care of most problems

    I really haven't found that many that I liked.
    XDM(the only one I've found that I truly like).
    Ruger SR9(very close 2nd to the XDM but the triggers a little grittier and lower ammo cap)
    GEN 3 glock17(didn't like the ergos but I can shoot it accurately enough)
    M&P9(the trigger was incredibly sloppy but that was my only gripe)
    if I truly HAVE to pick a 5th then I would have to say M9 but I do so under protest
