      Although I have never shot one, they feel good in my hand and the mag release feels very natural to me. Maybe I can talk the owner into putting one in the rental case to help people recognize it more and get a feel for it. Plus, it would give me a chance to play with it! I here the recoil is nonexistant.

      I wouldn't say nonexistant. More like unnoticable. it is a complete thrill to shoot. With 20 rnds it seems to never end. I grin wider with every shot.

      I'm happy for you. Is it hard to find ammo for it? I held one and it felt great. Someday soon I hope to have one.

      I've been seriously considering a Five seveN, but I haven't had the chance to hold one, the grip looks similar to the SIGMA's (which I really love the grip of) how is the trigger on it? how hard is it to find 5.7 ammo?

      ??? I'll hav to call BS here. HK's not realistically priced? give me a break...I just bought a NIB HK P2000 with Night sights for $640 +tax. If this isn't realistic then I don't know what is.
      Also, both the HK's and Sig's are used by LE and Military...get your facts straight please.

      I vote for HK.

      I vote Walther, but to each his/her own. What ever works for you. I do not think a particular brand of pistol makes anyone a poser. That is like saying that anyone who gets a P99 is a poser because of Bond. That may be the case for some but not others.

      I do however enjoy hearing the opinions of those that include references (repeatedly) about their relationship with SEALs, Special Forces, and the such. They always have such combative replies.

      But do not listen to me, I am simply a professional amateur. As you were.

      I don’t look at what the other guy carries but what would work best for me. I have different personal qualifications than others here based on where I live, body build, price et, et. To get what the other use is not a way to do it in my book. If I were to drive what James Bond drives I’d be saving up for it for half my life. I’m content with my Ford Explorer.

      I'm with you. HK should not have been left off that poll. It seems to me that the OP has an axe to grind with HK and it was intentionally left off that list to make a point.

      I vote Walther.

      The P99 is hands down my favorite pistol.

      HK USP Compact would be my second favorite.

      Glock 19 my third pick.


      I've shot pretty much every polymer gun out ther except for:
      -Any polymer Beretta
      -HK Mark 23 and USP Elite and whatever the original was VP-70 or somthing, I've dry fired once.
      -Steyr M/S series
      -Any FN Polymer gun (Really interested by these though...very tempting)

      I don't carry a gun professionally. I'm a nerdy engineer. I also like to shoot A LOT and take pride in being a badass with my weapon. I like what I like. HK people like what they like. Sig people like what they like. 1911 people like what they like. A tool is a tool is a tool, and when it comes to the pistols mentioned, none really does anything different or better than the others.

      Warrior spirit is what wins gun battles. The genius that started this poll would be wise not to discount an opponent's Warrior spirt because of his tool(s); after all it would be embarassing to be killed by some 'poser'.

      I would have liked to see HK on the poll but I own a Kahr also and I must say to be so small it is accurate and reliable.

      I chose Glock, of course.

      I was training yesterday and after 300 rounds, my Glock model 35 has yet to let me down. I can't say the same with my other classmates' Hks and Kimbers.

      If you're generating this much controversy and have to keep explaining what you mean, you've posed your poll in a confusing and conflicting way.

      If you just open up the subject, without the poll, then you could count the responses and get your own numbers. That might be more meaningful.

      -terry

      Just another poser with a used Sig.

      I didn't see a link to vote for the S&W M&P... I would have voted for that if it was there.

      (quotes shortened for the sake of a point)

      So, they don't market to civilians, hardly any agencies use them, they are expensive, and unreliable in comparison to the compitetion...

      How the %*#& do they stay in business?

      I voted for Glock.

      You didn't list H&K or FN.
