    The blackhawk is my range gun, but the SR9 fits just fine for edc.
    However, I will be purchasing a Glock 17 or 19 soon.

    I agree with the "Glock vs. Sig" comment. It is sort of like the Beretta vs. Browning of shotgun arguements. Guys that seem to like one dislike the other??!!!
    I've owned and shot a lot of guns both pistols and shotguns. From my signature you can see which I prefer. I have several Sigs but the 229 ( 40 S&W)is by far my favorite pistol. It never gives me an issue and has a quality ( for a "SERVICE" TYPE weapon).

    I could not bring myself to place a vote on this poll. I just couldn't make up my mind. I have my favorite pistols, but favorite manufacturer? For example . . . favorite pistol - 1911, manufacturer? Les KimColFieldSon

    And I could not choose due solely upon which I have the most of. I have several of several, if you know what I mean.

    I voted S&W just because they have such a long history and many dependable and great designs.

    LOL I heard LKCFS puts out some sweet stuff

    I voted H&K but I have owned something from all of the major manufacturers and have yet to be able to make any significant complaints. It's so nice having several options to answer questions like "which is the best carry handgun for me?"

    SIG-Sauer is my favorite. The P228 is a good gun (for me, it was the best available at the time). The P230 and P232 are my favorite guns, also the best available at the time, and I have become very used to them, so I am not very interested in other small handguns, even those with more features and more powerful ammunition.

    For some perspective, I own 2 P230s and 2 P232s, with over 180,000 rounds fired through all of them over the last 19 years. I also have an agency-issue P228, with 160,000 rounds fired over the same time period. SIG-Sauer has more than proven itself, in my opinion. They have great customer service, too.

    Not a big surprise Glock is in the lead! They are cheap to buy and not a bad gun.........., but for me, they feel like a big dog turd, I picked up out of the yard.

    Sti

    Based on my experience I would put STI at the head of the class. Great little company in Georgetown, TX. that makes some of the finest 1911s out there today. Unbelievable customer service. This 100% employee owned company takes enormous pride in their products. Terrific people and terrific guns!

    I've gotta say that I really like Walther. German arms companies have made some of the finest firearms in history, and I think the P99 is an exquisite gun in nearly every aspect.

    I for got how long ago I replyed to this but I have own all but eight on the list. If I were to vote today it would be Para-Ordance. I have yet to own one but have had many changes to shoot them with the LDA trigger system. By the end of this year my plan is to own three of them. I want the small compact 9mm LDA for the wife which I think will be perfect for her and if not then it's mind. The first one I'll get is the carry LDA in 45acp for my primary and the last on is there full size 9mm that holds 18 with the LDA. Add one more, I will also get a service size 45acp with LDA and trick it out for compition shooting. This time around I will not own more than 10 handguns so four of them will be Para, have to have a glock19, XDc 45acp 5inch barrell,and I forgot the maker but I found a great little gun that holds two 410 that's perfect for car defence. HK USPc 45acp a must and have know idea what the last two will be I'm sure revolvers.

    The American Derringer Co. makes a two shot .45 Colt/ .410 model.
    Also Taurus makes a model called The Judge that's a five shoot revolver, also for .45 Colt / .410 bore. The Taurus line has both 2 1/2 inch shell, and a 3 inch shell versions.
    (Yeah, I know some people think of the Tauri as being paperweights.)

    Kind of a biased poll since we can only judge by what we have personally owned,Springfield has been good to me but then again never needed to send my Sig in? go figure?

    S&W. How could anyone vote for another? Look at their record and products.

    From the Big 5 DG Rifles to the Mini-14/30 Rancher's to the 10/22.

    From the SP/GP frame and handle to the legendary Blackahwk line (incl 50th Aniv.!) to the massive SuperRedhawk .454 to a tiny LCR in your pocket.

    One company does it all.

    Ruger.......'nuff said.

    I voted Springfield becase I just read up on the Professional. Sounds pretty sweet. Wait till I read another review/thread/have another shop visit, then I would change my vote again. Still new here

    I am a fan of several manufacturuers, but my M&P's by S&W are gowing on me more and more.

    Inexpensive, rock solid reliable, and very ergonomic.

    So many to choose from.

    I have reasons to pick a couple of manufacturers.

    I called S&W a couple of weeks ago to buy a part for a revolver. They sent me 2 of them free of charge.

    S&W makes great wheel guns.

    Glock keeps it simple in the semi-autos

    Sigs are the closest to perfect machining.
