Glock.

Not bashing their quality or performance, I will just never spend  money on a Glock.

i will never buy a "new" S&W because of the "agreement" between Smith & Wesson and the Clinton Administration
What agreement?

I would never buy a Taurus handgun.  I have heard from too many friends, gun shop owners, retailers, and other people I trust that they are junk.  The one gun store I went to I spoke with the manager and he said that 9 out of 10 guns brought there to be returned for service are taurus firearms.  He even said their revolvers have clearance issues and hammer springs that break etc.  Nah... i'll spend my money elsewhere.

Looks like no one likes hi-point. I didn't see that in the list or I would have voted that. Those things are so cheap you really get what you pay for.

Taurus and Hi Point, I dont know why people still buy from them.
I may be the luckiest man on this earth but I have a 9mm 24/7 and my wife has a .380 TCP and we have never had one problem with either. The 9mm has only gone through about 400 rounds and my wife went through her LTC class with no problems. BTW she is not Annie Oakley but she passed firing her first 50 rounds. Go figure.

I voted Glock and my Leg thanks me for my thoughtfulness.

Keltec, Bersa, Rock Island (and SCCY are no-no for me.

I should also add Glock...

My brother only had one 9mm auto, and he couldnt hit the side of a barn with it.   :bangheadonwall: He ASSUMED that was just the way 9mm autos were and kinda ask me about it to that effect.  So I went out one day to visit. His junker was throwing crap all over the place. Even off the bench, it wouldnt hold a 12 inch group @ 25 yards.   :facepalm:
 I took two 9mm autos.
1. Beretta 92 fs.
2. CZ 75 bd.

After shooting both, and  drilling the target quite nicely with both,   I told him to throw that pile of scrap away and go buy a real gun.
 He did.  :P

I thought Armscor and Rock Island were basically the same.

They are made at the same place, at armscor. But, they sell them under something like 10 or 12 subforums. Rock Island is one of those brands. But not everyone knows that.

Taurus. I bought my first and only Taurus, a 992 .22LR/.22 Mag conversion, a few years ago. Cylinder binding, trigger issues right out of the box. Their customer service was a joke. They will never get my money again.

Ive seen 2 different 92  taurus knock offs that would cycle the ammo well enough.

but you couldnt  hit the side of a barn with the damn things. @ 25 yards the knock offs were lucky to hit the paper, let alone the black 8 inch ring. They were really  that bad.

BOTH guys went and bought Beretta 92 FS's  AFTER they shot mine with the same ammo  and seen the difference in accuracy. Ive NEVER owned a Beretta 92 that wouldnt keep EVERYTHING inside the  8 inch black @ 25 yards. In fact its usually pretty easy to do.
