Best handgun ever made?

    Of course you're right, even as both of these are fairly accurate as single shot weapons.
    I believe their advantage would come in a counter-offensive situation of "overwhelming hordes" (Example: Chinese Army/UN Troops-Yalu River, North Korea-1950), where quickly dropping 20 attackers could unnerve 500 more into immediate retreat. I "get" that these are not suitable as "home protection" pistols.

    The "best" handgun is the one that fits your needs better than any other you can find.

    Yep, the .357 magnum is sweet - which is why I carry the S & W Centennial edition stainless steel J - frame 5 shot revolver when I need serious protection. It is not too big to carry comfortably and it packs a wallop.

    When I need to be even more stealthy though, I carry a .25 Beretta semi. It rides in that little cigarette - pack pocket in the right front of the classic bluejeans very inconspicuously, right at hand and easy to pull rapidly. That particular weapon is the favourite of many assassins as it is relatively quiet and quite lethal if you know what you are doing. It is a remarkably easy carry piece.

    Note: I am street legal, licensed to carry the weapons and NRA qualify at 30 feet. Closer I use my hands, further I run like heck.

    I will say the colt peace maker the U.S. Army M 9 Beretta. An the 1911 Colt. Are great pistols. But so is the one you own. An I agree with MacGyver the one not pointed at you. An a pistol round won't go through a engine block
