IMO, the best use for a sidearm is for fighting your way back to a long gun. On my best day, I'm only marginally better than average with a handgun anyway. After that, the practice of muscle memory and drills are what get you out of hot water.

Let's also keep in mind the 1st Rule of Acquisition: Acceptable is Awardable. Fill as many of the requirements as you can, get it at best value to the govt, don't end up with a $800 toilet seat in lifetime sustainment costs. Very rarely is it about getting best of breed.
