I was disappointed not to see Fusion Firearms included on your list.
I am still a sig whore, lol
You asked who my favorite handgun manufacturer was. I'd have to go with Hi-point.
I'm not saying it's the best gun made. I'm saying for the money (Not Much) they make
a affordable pistol that actually works. Along with their pistol Hi-point offers the BEST
warranty in the business. No questions asked, if you send it back they fix it in a couple weeks
and send it back to you without charge. (Usually with a FREE magazine for your trouble.)
Now remember, you didn't ask what my favorite pistol was. You asked my favorite handgun
manufacturer was. I actually like everything Beretta.
I can see there are a lot of SIG and Glock lovers here, but have any of you had or shot the Stoeger (x Beretta) Cougar or a Tanfoglio Witness. I would put either of these firearms right up there with Sig and Glock.
Not trying to start a RANT, just subject for conversation.
Charter Arms Stainless 44spl 3" Bulldog. I have now put to storage the Bulldog. But that Little guy has earned my vote. I Pocket carried and iwb carried that piece for over25 years. I know there are many other guns that could have participated just as well .But that 200$ bull dog was thrown under the car mat, shoved behind the seat under a pile of clothes, never asked for a fancy holster.I would never treat my walther ppk. colts or beretta's that way. they stayed in storage.The bulldog barks out "put me in coach".
I went to a local gun shop to find a new carry piece to take the place of the bulldog. While talking to the sales clerk, I chose this local store because they talk nice to you and seem like they want your business I don't know what it is but i have run into some locals with money in hand ready to buy and they can be very rude.But anyway while talking to this sales clerk at the gunshop I pull out of pocket only after asking permission my charter arms bulldog. he opened the cylinder and the dust cloud and whatever else dirt appeared was actually very funny , I did'nt realize how dirty and dusty it actually was. My Bulldog never complained. The sales clerk was just so surprised that he called the other two gun sale reps over to see the dust and filth. I started to feel a little embarassed with all the clerks and customers around and right then I guaranteed if I pulled that trigger that bulldog will fire , And then I asked I'm looking for a New semi - auto that will give me the same results and dependability. the closest semi they agreed would be the glock. I purchased the 27 model that day. I put the bulldog to rest, only because I have a few small children and removing the clip from the gun is my choice of being safer with fast access to the clips and gun when needed at home.
I also suffer from the 'signess': P229 in .40 and SP 2022 in 9mm. I also like the HK P30 (9mm & .40); but looking at P220 .45 or P226 in .40 for my birthday present to myself in a couple of months.
Hey Shipwreck, where is Kahr in that poll? My vote is for a CW9...:mrgreen:
Currently I 've become a Sig addict, although I only currently have only two, among my five handguns, they really intrigue me. For my best overall "detail to quality" manufacturer, I would have to go with Ed Brown. But noted, Ed Brown not one of your everyday handgun purchases ... :smt1099
I like many, some of which I prefer their revolvers and others I prefer their semi-autos. There is one that I love both their wheel guns and bottom feeders: Ruger.
I would have to go with FN Herstal. With one acception(revolvers), they have a complete line to choose from and the quality is top shelf.
Ruger is one company that makes, Autos, Wheel guns AND Rifles......
That make them a manufacture! and they cover the bases.
Oh and they are American Made.... :smt1099
Favorite Gun Manufacturer is Ruger.
Decent price, great revolvers, american made.
Old Model Blackhawk 45
I also have an SR9 and am thinking about purchasing an SR40
Also partial to Berettas.
So far I see really good things about Sig Sauer...
I like the sig 220/226 because of easy manipulation, removable grip to allow crimson trace, decocker, and most of all the RELIABILITY... that's my main concern. Looks may count to some, but my life and the life of others mean more to me.
S&W! The best revolvers, great semi-auto pistols, and good AR15s. American made as well.
Glock--Takes a licken, and keeps on ticken.
I voted STI. Love my 2 Trojans - 40S&W and 45ACP.
I love my BHP and S&W revolvers and Glock.
HK all the way...
.....more Sig love here :mrgreen:
