The best IMHO is H&K, The P series and the USP series are some of my favorite poly framed guns.

Of those choices, I prefer Glock.

They are such a simple and well-proven pistol.

I've owned Glocks.

Now I own XDs (sold all the Glocks).

They are a very well thought out design.

I especially like that the front rails (where all the stresses occur) are not molded into the frame, but are part of a removable steel structure.

While I like Glocks, I'm not in love with them or anything. One thing I will say is there is no other platform in the polymer handgun category that is as tried and tested like Glocks have been. They have withstood the test of time pretty well. Most of the other options out there haven't been around nearly as long, so by default they wouldn't have been tested as much. The M&P series are proving to be a pretty robust option in this category. H&K's are good of course too. I never could get into the XD's, however they seem to work great and plenty of people love them.

The best? Of course you will get a half dozen answers to that Q. Glock, HK, XD, FN, S&W, Ruger, EAA, etc (not in any order) are all good guns. they all have their faults. Whatever feels right in your hand, hits where you poinit it, goes bang EVERY TIME.

IMHO, pick one and shoot it a bunch (1000+ rds) until you are good with it and confident in its reliability. Buying the "best" and shooting it 50-100 rds is like buying a Ferrari, driving it home and parking it in the garage.
