Glock and Walther!!
The Walther P99 is nice.
I have one.
However, I prefer the metal framed guns like the P5.
Therefore, I chose Glock.
how could hk ,the pioneer of the plastic not be on there
Damn near everything that comes out these days is polymer though, so...
I am late for dinner but my plastic guns are Glocks and a Kel-Tec P32. Regards, Richard
Springfield XD's reason is the trigger system. Since it has a grip safety like the 1911's the tension can go all the way when cocked which makes for a single action only gun.
Off of the list I'd vote for the XD, but I've never shot a Walther or Kahr.
However, I would pick HK if it were on that list, and I couldn't care less what "anyone" thinks about it.
Personally I like Beretta's PX4. Glocks are great guns but the grip angle feels odd in my hands. For some reason the PX4 feels just right to me. As for the others I have no experience so I cannot logically comment on them.
Overall I think they are all good tools from reputable companies. More choices are always good and the more people that get into the hobby of firearms the better
Sadly, the Ruger P95 wasn't on the list of options. It's my "favorite" plastic pistol, but the Glock has become my pistol of choice.
I very much like the XDs, but since I already had a few Glocks I have stuck with them instead of switching to XDs. I did consider it though.
Personally I prefer Glocks. I can't shoot XD's worth a damn. I would love to own Sigs and HK's but they are just out of my modest price range at the moment.
At the gun store I work at part time Glocks are our biggest seller by far. XD's come in a distant 2nd. Down the line a little ways are Sigs. HK's don't sell well enough for us to stock them that often, and the 2 P99's we have have been at the store longer than I have.
I think they are all great guns, but here in Commiefornia, where everything is overpriced, most people don't buy HK's. Even if you buy online, You have to pay a coupole hundred over the list price just to get it in your hand.
All of that being said, I love Sigs! And an HK P2000 is real high on my wish list.
Shipwreck-To be honest I don't know what models they are, but they are in the high $400 range. It seems around here, nobody knows much about them(myself included).
Benzbuilder-When we get 5.7's in the shop they sell same day. Every time. All other FN's sell pretty good.
