My love for Beretta is growing.  Given my vote is not yet for Beretta -- can I change my vote?

I'm try'n.  And, since I'm certain you know when/how to read this crap ... whatcha gonna do if you wake up one day and realize you like something more than you like Beretta?  :th_thicon_question:

I've been a Glock guy, but now I'm really starting to enjoy Beretta 92 series.  But I voted Glock anyway.

It dont look like the poll winner is all that popular with the crowd.   :bangheadonwall:   :P

There are two kinds of people in the world my friend. Those with loaded guns, and those who dig. YOU DIG.  " Blondie".

Well, any man that wouldnt cheat at cards for a poke, dont want one bad enough. " Gus".

Just my personal observation bouncing around message boards over the years.

People that like Glocks, tend to REALLY like Glocks.

Only other people I have seen that come close are re-loaders who use Dillion equipment.

I have had strangers come up to me at the gun counter and want to argue about Glocks just for telling a salesperson I am not interested in buying a Glock.
I might have just as well said something bad about their mothers.
-that's what I mean.

Glock fanboys are like Democrats.....
If you don't like Glocks, the only explanation must be that you are either too stupid or just don't understand how great they are.
-sometimes I'm surprised they don't play the race card as well.

ETA: I have never said they are not good guns.

Everything has fanboys.  Which is totally cool, as long as you realize you're a fanboy.  The great thing about about guns, is that there's so many that are outstanding, so you can call your favorite gun the best and essentially be right. 

But really, though, its like your kids.  You can love them all equally (no picking favorites!).  But even though I love all my kids equally, nobody else's kids come even close.  My kids are the best kids in the world, and that's a FACT!

Funny,
I don't even feel that way about my kids or grandkids.

When the kids got into trouble at school,

my wife was never one to go in saying... "Not my kid, he'snot like that" - like you see so much these days.
she was more like...  "what did they do this time?" - especially with the boy, she was on a first name basis with the principal.

I was there a year or so.  I didnt like it.  Way too PC. 
Not as bad as thew CZ forum though. They actually have moderators that are libtard trolls who pick fights with the members.

i picked Springfield since i have owned so many of them over the years! but in all various types over the years. but in total honesty, there are really just too many great pistols in all flavors out there on the market. it would be much easier to pick a few that were real dogs than to list the really good ones!

my first SA i bought was a SA 1911 in 1987 at the suggestion of my gun store buddy who was a former Marine. i really was wanting a Beretta 92F but they were scarce and practically unobtainable at the time. so he suggested the 1911 platform at the time as an alternative, with the exception that if i didn't like it, he'd move heaven and hell to get me a Beretta! he had two choices in my price range, the Colt 1911 and the Springfield 1911. i went with the SA because it was about $50 cheaper than the Colt! after about two boxes of ammo, i was hooked on the 1911! have owned one of some sorts ever since, and have owned at least forty of them since then. i did finally get a Beretta 92F about two years later! another great pistol platform that i like, but i do like the 1911 platform much better.
