    What is The Most Reliable Pistol you own or have owned

    I'm talking about pistols here not revolvers. For me it is my current preferred carry gun, my S&W 457.

    While everyone here is familiar with User and Skidmark's ongoing Surry saga. I'd also like to recommend Mark Matthews of the Matthews law group in Richmond.
