I didn't vote because this is a tough poll, at least for me. There are so many variables... metal, poly, full size,
medium, compact or sub-compact, pistol, revolver and in what calibers? While I'm far from a handgun expert,
I don't think any one manufacturer makes the best in all models and calibers.
My favorites are what I already own:
Springfield - for a full size .45ACP 1911 (PX9151LP)
Sig Sauer - for a full size .40S&W metal frame (P226 Elite)
Ruger - for a full size 9mm poly frame (SR9)
Ruger - for a full size .22LR metal frame (MarkIII Standard)
An exception to my opening remarks would be... I like the Ruger SR9 so much that if they come out with a
SR40 and a SR45, I think I might add them to my collection just to own them, but not to replace the .45 and
.40 I already own. So, after thinking about it... I guess my favorite manufacturer would have to be Ruger " IF "
they came out with the other SR models since I would own four of their guns.
I just need to find a good CCW pistol/revolver to my collection in .40 or 9mm, and then I'll be done.
