No possible rapidity of fire can atone for habitual carelessness of aim with the first shot.

While all of the above are sought after and discontinued,the question was most sought after not a personal preference.
Purchases of the consumers indicate surplus com block pistols in 32 acp and 9x18 mak.Most being copies of ppk a highly sought after pistol yet out of price range for many.
Clones are not limited to ppk but also of hipower ,beretta etc.all surplus due to 9x18 being replaced with 9 x 19.
Cheap ,affordable,and available.
H&K M10 also (40MM version of the P7 )
Nickle plated 4 inch Colt Python, one of the prettiest pistols I ever saw and the best trigger pull on any revolver.
Can't believe no one has said Sig 228. The only come up on occasion and don't usually last long.

+1 on the S&W 3rd Generation pistols:
the S&W 3913, 3914, 3953 (DAO) are among the best ever made. Single stack 9mm: flat, thin, concealable, and dead-on-nuts accurate and dependable. Apparently S&W engineers and designers were about 20 years ahead of the industry!
