    Anything made by Mr. Gaston Glock is the winner in my book. I have been carrying a Glock of some sort since the mid 1990's. I have carried various other types of weapons but I always resort back to the Glock because they will digest any type of ammo and have never failed me. I guess that is why their slogan is "Glock Perfection"

    While I love the power and SA feel of a 1911... for all out reliability in a "combat" situation, I trust my glock 17.... 17+1, with two spare 17 rounders all loaded with 147gr. JHP!!! I feel pretty comfortable.

    I love my 1911, but I trust my Glock. I know that this my sound hypocritical to some...Sorry, I'm only human.

    Its a question that will elicit subjective opinions. I'd personally take my g17 anywhere into battle for many reasons, and that answer comes with having carried a 1911 for over 20 years on the streets to protect myself.

    Combat pistol=military pistol=M9. Reliable, rugged, accurate, powerful, easy to shoot well.

    I am no longer in the military, and carry a variety of pistols, including a 1911, and several S&W revolvers and occasionally a SAA.
    Plus a .25 in my poket.

    I don't think any pistol should be considered a "combat handgun" - they're all just handguns. There are some that are very reliable, and some chambered in different cartridges. Glocks are good, Sigs are good, a good 1911 is good. Those are the ones that I'd pick first if I had to take something with me to combat as a secondary weapon. As it stands, I've had to take an M9 - which was always worked for me during training, and I never had to use it. Just my $0.02
