Glock 19. It's small enough to conceal yet big enough for duty/tactical use. Holds 15+1 of 9mm with its standard mags yet can take a full size 17/34 mag upping it to 17+1 of 9mm.

M9 Beretta. Out of all the handguns I've used this one never failed me and does a lot of damage.

It's easy to fix/maintain on your own with cheap easily obtainable parts. Oh and it has a light rail!

Kimber ultra carry. It's not extremely practical or high capacity but it's one of the finest shooting pistols I have ever pulled a trigger on.

I have two, but I carry a Glock 30SF. .45ACP with 10+1.

Springfield XD Compact .45
10+1 & will take the 13 rd magazines. Superbly accurate, rock solid reliable, and quite comfortable to shoot. Small enough to conceal & big enough to take care of business.

Of the several I own I carry a Glock 21 .45ACP loaded with Speer Gold Dot 230 gr. I love the reliability of the Glock, plus it was formerly carried by a police officer. So if it's good enough for a cops sidearm, it's more than adequate for me.

Is a street sweeper considered a revolver?

My first thoughts too. However it's a little bulky

It is bulky and has weight but makes up for that with its performance. I don't know how many times I dropped it in the sand and it never jammed.

Due to muscle and nerve damage, I don't have the strength to pull the slide back on a semi-auto, so I'd want a S&W brushed stainless 6-shot 2 1/2" .38 Special or .357 with Pachmayr grips.

I'd take a H&K USP 45. I've held one and it fit my lanky hand perfectly. Plus, those things have gone nearly 300,000 rounds between failures and can withstand drops, immersion, sand, mud, ect. They're beefy as hell, imagine a Mark 23 in 10mm Auto.

20% said they'd want a revolver but no posts in comments as to which one or why. =\
