Take a look at the Springfield XD-9 or XD-40.

Great price, solid reviews, and adjustable grips.

Or ... if you really want to spend the $$, take a look at the Sig 250. Adjustable grips and the ability to change out calibers if you so choose. Use it with 9mm ammo for cheap target practice and keep it loaded with .40S&W or .45ACP for when the SHTF.

Both would make a great weapon system ... but as others have said, go out to a range and rent every gun they have ... twice.

Don't naysay revolvers, either ... when given a choice out backpacking, camping, or hunting ... when I need something that is ultra-reliable, has plenty of stopping power for anything short of grizzlies or polar bears, and is dead nuts on accurate ... I choose my S&W 686 .357MAG with a 4" barrel over my Sig and Glock.

My theory about when the SHTF is ... if you need more than 6 shots like RIGHT NOW ... you are in a world of hurt if all you have is a handgun. Either you can't shoot worth a crap, or you are in a world of hurt and you should have grabbed the AK instead.
