EAA - Tanfoglio
But if ruger made a good ambi pump or auto shotgun it would be all Ruger.
Mine: Sig Sauer, Kimber, CZ, Glock
I guess because I own one of each
Sig - Mosquito
S&W - Model 60
Other - FN - FNP9
was there 4 choices?
Colt - vest pocket 1908 25
definitely Glock, browning (hi power) and CZ (75) all accurate and undeniably reliable.
these polls are meaningless. how many people own all the manifacturers on the list and then some. how can you say my "whatever brand" is better than a "whatever brand " when you don't own them both for a comparison?
Wilson, Ed Brown, Ruger and Smith
H&K for the P2000
Colt for the M1908 .380
Hi-Standard for the Double Nine .22 revolver that my dad taught me to shoot with.
Glock: great reliability, carry one daily, one in my nightstand 247
S&W: the M&P line, great looks, reliability, shoots nice
Ruger: the SR line, nice sort of tactical look, have wanted one for a while
Browning, Ruger and Taurus. Browning -- makes the finest 9mm ever, the HiPower. Ruger -- never had an issue with anything they made. Taurus -- I own a cople and they are all fun even if the use Beretta designs in some stuff.
No big surprise that S&W and Ruger come out on top -- those were two of my favorite picks as well.
My 3rd pick was Magnum Research.
I'm probably in the minority here, and on every other gun forum. The looks of a gun is of little interest to me.
Reliability is my number one priority. Price is also considered, but way below reliability.
A gun that goes bang, every time, regardless of ammo type is my main interest.
For that reason, Ruger is my favorite brand. (I voted in the poll)
When using factory ammo I have never had a single ftf, fte, or anything else with any of my Ruger guns.
I'm not saying any other brands are not as good, or better, but I have no experience with them to judge.
My first Ruger served me well, so I bought another...and another...and another, etc.
I have seen no reason to go to another manufacturer for my needs.
As long as your choice serves you the way you want/need, then any brand, and any firearm, is good.
Springfield Armory XD/XDm and 1911's
S&W revolvers/M&P and AR-15-22
CZ 75 AND & 82
Chipotle, Buds Gun Shop, and Cabelas...
in that order.
However, Smith & Wesson and Kel-Tec come in fifth and sixth.
Para, Kimber & CZ
Beretta HK SW
1. FN Herstal (FNH)
3. Sig (never owned or even shot one, but they make so many models that I like!)
(4. Would prob be H&K, if only for the P30 and it's amazing grip!)
My top three are:
1. Astra ...A-70 compact 9mm
2. Rock Island M1911 A1 commander .45
3. Sig Mosquito .22lr
