After much more research I'm now looking at a glock 17 gen 4. Mainly because they are so much cheaper than any other gun here and seem like a reliable platform. I like the Walther PPQ the HK VP9 and the Sig P320 but they are all at least 400 more than the glock. The M&P is 1000 here compared to 800 for the glock but the aftermarket parts available for the glock is what tipped the scales between those two. It's a 6 month process to get your first handgun in Australia so I still have a couple of months to wait. I'm also looking at getting a Hera triarii carbine conversion, it's the closest I will ever get to owning a semi auto rifle due to our gun laws.

I'm hankering for a new Colt Cobra.  It's about time Colt got around to making double action revolvers again.

The Colt single action revolver is my all time favorite pistol.
