      The colt 1911 45acp is very popular but it seems lately, everyone knows the ruger gp 100 revolver.

      Gentlemen,

      You all are missing my point - Worldwide Recognition. Millions of people have never seen a TV set nor inside of a theater, but they have seen the soldier or policeman on the street corner.

      Many recognize the Webley revolver, maybe not by name. But in African nations where British influence is strong, the Webley is best known. And the Luger and M1911 have been the sidearms of gunrunners, pirates and n'er-do-wells the world over. As popular as the Ruger revolver is in India, many of these are seen only in the metropolitan areas. These are areas where Glocks, Barrettas and SIG are yet twenty-five to fifty years away. Places where guns are disposable due to prohibitions.

      I don't know, Bob. The top two guns (the Luger and the SAA) never saw extensive wordwide use. The Luger wasn't produced in huge numbers, and the SAA's use was mainly in North America. I think there is a substantial entertainment influence in these results. Hollywood has been far more prolific, in terms of people with actual first-hand exposure to its product, than Georg Luger or Sam Colt.

      I didn't realize that people in nations where there are soldiers on the street corners were allowed to know about guns, never mind be polled on the ones they recognize. I'm not sure they'd necessarily recognize a gun carried in a military flap holster, either, though I am sure they could readily ID an AK. :-D

      I am sure many European Jews would recognize P08s, P38s, and P35s -- if they could speak from the grave. :x

      I have to agree with mike and add,that if you take the whole world into consideration where would you find a higher gun to people ratio per capita other then in the United States.

      Looks like a nail gun to me.

      If it has an unexpected delay in firing, would it be a hang nail? :-D

      I'll bet it comes with a factory hair trigger too...

      ever since i was old enough back in the late sixty's to play cowboys and Indians or war, the gun every kid wanted to be carrying was a colt .45, either a toy SA or a toy 1911 colt .45. every one knew that when you said you had a colt .45 you where the bad ass cowboy or the hard nosed soldier.
