Had the Sigs before the shotgun.
Had pistols before anything here too.

Just added a Kahr CW9 to the club. Great little gun and shooter at a very reasonable price.

My go-to handgun is a 4th-gen Glock 31 chambered for the outstanding .357 SIG cartridge. Despite the energy of the round, this gun is quite comfortable to shoot. I like Glocks because they're like the Remington 870 of the handgun world; proven to perform consistently and reliably even in harsh duty, and virtually any imaginable accessory is offered for them. The full-sized Glocks in .357 SIG and .40 S&W can also be converted to fire at least a half-dozen different calibers without permanent modifications. I'm currently in the market for a 9x19 conversion barrel, but it's tough finding a decent price on one that doesn't have a tacky cartoon wolf engraved on it.

I carry Remington Golden Saber Bonded 125-grain hollowpoints, which are some very well-built rounds with great terminal performance even through barriers (including several types of body armor). They're also reasonably-priced for premium carry ammo.

My other pistol is a Kel-Tec PF-9, which is a neat little 9x19 pocket gun slim enough to carry comfortably in any outfit. This gun tends to get mixed reviews, but I think most of that's due to people having unreasonable expectations for how a $250 gun should look and feel, or who can't hold the little thing steady enough for it to cycle reliably with light practice ammo. Since it's very lightweight and has a recoil-action rated for +P ammo, I can understand an occasional stovepipe or fail-to-feed with plinking stuff. With carry ammo, this gun has been 100% (except for one fail-to-feed that was my fault for reassembling the magazine with the spring backwards).

I carry Cor-Bon 115-grain +P JHPs in the PF-9 (if Remington ever gets around to offering their 9x19 +P Golden Sabers with a 115-grain bullet, I'll be all over it). This round has a great track record, and impressive amounts of kinetic energy that it transfers rapidly. They're spendy, but it doesn't take multiple boxes to load up a single-stack subcompact.

I'd also like to get a couple revolvers someday, when I have more money to spend on hobbies. The two I have in mind are a S&W 627 (.357 Mag/.38 Special) and S&W 460V (.460 S&W Mag/.454 Casull/.45 Colt/.45 Schofield).

*always*: S&W 638 in Bob Mika front pocket holster

Every now and then: Ruger Speed Six stainless w/ 2-3/4-in. barrel and Tyler T-grip IWB, Leahy simply rugged leather
Ruger SP101 .327 Fed.mag. DAO with Crimson Trace laser grip OWB in Leahy simply rugged leather.

If my wife doesn't carry her S&W M&P Shield 9mm, sometimes I take that with extra mags, IWB in a so-called "sticky holster" from Naples, FL. I prefer revolvers as a general rule. I don't think I'm much of a pistol or revolver shot, so I try to keep things simple by mostly using revolvers that basically operate the same way. Of course, the M&P is essentially a knock-off of the Glock type striker-fired polymer "point [*ahem* aim ] and shoot" 9mm handgun.
