Thank God I'm alive!
The 1911 is probably the best, except for that low mag capacity. Having to reload after 7 rounds is cutting it a bit close.
I'll add another superlative, though - IMO, the parkerized 92/96 FS is the most visually attractive handgun ever produced. That's just my opinion, of course. In fact, I finally had to get one just so that I can look at it every single day. It's also a wonderful firearm by itself.
I know nothing about revolvers, so I won't even go there. I've fired fully auto M-16, AK-47, an Uzi knockoff and a few others. My favorite one was the MP-5 - compact, well-designed, accurate, easy to load, etc. It's too bad they're so expensive.
That should only be a problem if you're not able to hit what you're shooting at.
