Hard poll. I don't have enough of those choices to give an honest answer.
I'm working on it though.
Hecklar and Koch, all the way...
H&K are way too overpriced! Glock gives better offers. Bill T.
Looks like the XD crowd is growing... More Springers than Glocks...
i first voted for glock and they are pretty darned near perfect
but then i discovered the walther P22 and the new PPS - if that PPSdoesn't sell for ccw i will be surprised
I probably wont get the pps until i win the lottery or a bonus at work because i own a Glock 26 - an it is near perfection
Own one para but got to check out a couple of the LDA carries..Man those things are nice. But you want to know it's gonna shoot every time and I don't care what it's been through you got to give the Sig it's due
SIG - but there are so many others out there to try! Ask me again in 5 years!
Isn't Walther considered S&W now or manufactured by S&W? Can you consider Walther a line of S&W? Will Walther lose it's identity or will it be kept because they still have Walther in Germany? How much does S&W own of Walther or is it just the US side of the business? I know it's a lot of questions. I'm just hoping Walther didn't hand everything over to Smith due to their size and now they don't care about the customer.
Glock, My Fav is the G-21!!
I own a few Rugers and recently a Marlin all .22lr, but my new Beretta 92FS 9mm is my baby, so it wins.
Since this is the semi-auto forum, I'd have to say EAA Witness, Ruger, or anything other than a Glock As for revolvers, I'd say Ruger.
That's a pretty tough choice. Colt sure made some fine pistols and revolvers, still among the best. And of course Smith & Wesson, especially the older vintage magnums. And Winchester, for rifles.
But then, there's Bill Ruger. Fine rifles, very good pistols, and second-to-none in the Single Action field.
Yep, its Ruger for me.
(Was I supposed to keep it confined to the bottom feeders? No matter, its still Ruger.)

I voted for Springfield, I have always been a big fan of there 1911's, I love my Dads SoCom M1A, Love the family M1, and everytime I touch my XD I fall a little bit more in love.
As a rookie to this forum, I've got to go with Springfield. Not because of the XD40 I have, although it's a good shooter. But I give the company more credit for the M-1. I even got a chance to use it at ITR before going to nam. It's got a great history and is still going strong. I know there are a lot of great handguns out there; most I don't even know about, being that I couldn't afford them. Hope I haven't skewed your poll.
I voted other. I don't really have a favorite but choose the best gun based on how I intend to use it. Right now I own guns from Ruger, Browing, S&W, Marlin, and Bersa. All are reliable and work great for what I use them for.
Military Police System makes my favorite home defense gun, the AA-12 with the optional 13" barrel.
Good for defending against hordes of home invaders and carjackers.

I carry a Springfield but my Witness Match is my favorite.
