Title: Poll - Favorite Gun Manufacturer?!?!
Post by: Shipwreck on February 22, 2011, 08:56:11 AM
Who is your fav handgun gun manufacturer?

I realize that CougarTex started a thread on this - but it is interesting to see the results of a poll, after it has been up for a long time and hundreds+ people vote on it...

So, vote for your fav - I can't possibly include everyone, but I tried to do the major companies...

Very thorough list.
I was looking for some of the obscure brands and you got all the ones I could come up with on the list, already.

I voted STI for obvious reasons.  Got to give a vote to a local TX company, and my STI is my favorite pistol.

I own S&Ws, Colts, Kimber,Ruger,Browning,Glocks, Springfield and I am sure a couple that don't come to mind right now I love them all. I voted for Springfield because it is what I carry mostly either the XD sub-compact in 9mm or a 1911 loaded model.

But those Ed Brown 1911 are almost to fine to talk about in public, I am pretty sure that those are what cause the term
 "gun porn" to come into use.

Yes, I have an Ed Brown Special Forces. Fantastic 1911 :)

I have both a Sig. and Glocks, I personally like the Glocks because they are just so simple to dissect, I had mine in 20 pieces the first day I bought it. "thanks to Youtube" (http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l286/mrbillpro/cool1.gif)

Kel-tec.  They are a young, hungry and innovative company, who is doing more to bring new and different gun designs to the American public than any of the older, more established manufacturers.

Title: Poll - Favorite Gun Manufacturer?!?!
Post by: Shipwreck on March 27, 2011, 08:55:41 PM
No - sorry. The poll is fair and square...

Realize that I post a link to this site in my signature at several other sites... admittedly, Berettas usually do not lead in these types of polls over time. I would expect to see Glock take the lead eventually, along with maybe Springfield (for XDs and for 1911s). But, as my signature guides people here... What other forum do you think I am on the most?

Why, the Beretta Forum, of course... :)

Stands to reason that except for maybe the Texas Gun Talk Forum (which would naturally have a lot of Houston residents on it), I've probably led many Beretta fans here as well...

And, most of the members of this site have never voted, hence my constant bumping of the thread (I tend to delete the "bumps" after someone else replies)...

Dont go to glock talk and invite alot of them.  Would rather loss the poll than deal with some of those guys.   There are some good ones but half of glock talk is bs rumors about a new glock that will be out next yr.  Seems like for a few wks that was all they kept talking about.  Someones friend friends friends knows a guy that knows a guy that says a new one is on the way.

Post by: lightskye on April 05, 2011, 12:55:46 PM
Sorry but I gotta go with H&K.  I know, I know...their prices are way high but they are a true innovator when it comes to handguns (first polymer frame handgun) and firearms in general.  The recent P30 series is arguably the most ergonomic (from factory) pistol to hit the market (complete with interchangeable backstraps AND sidestraps).  The mag-release lever is state-of-the-art (allows you to keep pistol on target without grip shifting to reload for) and the rear decocker (on V3, DA/SA) is a brilliant idea.

Second to H&K for me would be Beretta (also a handgun innovator) for their adoption of the rotating barrel system.  Despite how much my hand loves holding a P30 (and how natural they are to point), the PX4 series still proves itself to be more accurate (for me, anyways) than the P30 series (which itself is pretty damn accurate).  With a P30, I'm pretty sure every round will hit center mass @ 15 yards.  With a PX4, I KNOW every round will.

Haha - popularity wise, I knew Beretta would never be # one in a poll. But, I still think its the best gun - at least for me. Its unfortunate that I've owned something from just about every one of those choices at 1 point or another  :facepalm:

I could have owned a ton of Beretta 92s had I just stuck with that - hahha... But Then I'd always be lusting after some other brand of gun, just to try. At least I got it all outta my system...

Not a big fan of the Desert Eagle though, and I know I'm gonna P.O. some one here, but I really have never liked Glocks. Of course of all of them I've tried, maybe it was a pyscological thing, but I couldn't hit $#!t and I have yet to find one that feels comfortable in my hand.

I dunno...I shot a Glock twice before.  Both a g17 and a g22 and hated both.  They shot good, but I did not like the grip.  Now that the gen4 came out though I like the way it feels.

Post by: Shipwreck on September 09, 2011, 11:56:59 AM
I've owned 5 Glocks since I got my first in 1993. a Glock 17 was my first handgun, It was a jam-o-matic, even after a trip back to the factory. Carried a Glock 26 for 8 years, but I never really liked it. Had a Glock 19 too.

For a while, I liked a Glock 34. My all time fav Glock was a G17 RTF2. Very accurate, but the ejected casings hit me in the head no matter what I had done to the gun - but ONLY in a weaver stance. I do not shoot in the isosceles stance (I do not like it). But if I did, the problem went away...

Anyway - I don't want any Glocks now. I prefer DA/SA guns for self defense (the DA pull on my 92 I carry is just over 8lbs, so I don't like HEAVY double action). No plans to ever buy another Glock, sorry
Title: Re: Poll - Favorite Gun Manufacturer?!?!
Post by: Domineaux on September 09, 2011, 01:00:25 PM
I like Glocks plenty but when it comes down to it, they are very much a 1 trick pony. They have the popular, and even some less so, calibers and a great range of sizes covered in the exact same gun. Quite an example of "do 1 thing and do it well".
If they did broaden their scope some, they would get even more popular, hopefully without a loss of quality.

Even just offering factory options that after-market suppliers have already brought out like Aluminum/Stainless frames, Thumb Safety, Mag-Well, "Beavertail", color options, etc would bring in a lot of new customers.

Only issue with the poll, I fear results will be skewed by the thickness of most wallets.  Not many voters have even held some of the upper end brand names you have listed.

There is no way to win. If I don't include the higher names - then the people who love those brands will complain.

When Iw as admin at Handgun Forum - I started a poll... Which is still going on there, by the way. And that was the issue. I ended up having to make V2, and throw some of those in.

The high end 1911s will never outvote the Glocks and Springfields, etc - simply for economic reasons.

But, after 2-3 years, its still interesting to look at the numbers....

Because nobody makes another True GLock. The 1911 and the xd are their bread and butter and everybody makes a 1911 and The XD is just a knock off of the glock.

Thats just wrong.   
Actually have never shot a hi point,  the few people I know that own them actually say they are not bad guns for the price.    Personally I can't get past how ugly they are.     For only a little more I can get a used SW or Ruger.      But if all I could afford was a hi point I am sure it would be my favorite.
Title: Re: Poll - Favorite Gun Manufacturer?!?!
Post by: Domineaux on January 05, 2012, 07:38:32 AM
Yeah as far as I have ever heard, Hi-Points are decent cheap guns.
Most just cannot get past the fact that they were hammer forged with the ugly stick.
But if you ever need to grab one for defensive use in a pinch, you can trust that they will work.

I intentionally left off hi point, because I did not believe that anyone would pick it as their "favorite." There might be some who have one and like it. But, more than likely, they have it because that was all they could afford, and would likely jump at the opportunity to own something higher up the food chain if they could.

If a hi point truely IS your FAVORITE, you probably do not have much knowledge of firearms...

I've owned Colt, Beretta, KelTec, Browning, Dan Wesson, Sig, S&W and some I don't recall but am currently caring a Kimber Ultra+ CDP II and am very happy with the performance so far. I put a Crimson Trace laser sight on this one and am very pleased with the advantage this affords me. I was never a fan of laser sights but I shot a friends weapon with one and was very impressed. My favorite thing about the laser is the help I get when I get a little sloppy at the range. I can tell instantly what I am doing wrong. I think most of the manufactures out there do a good job with research and development before they market their weapon. It comes down to what works best for the individual shooter.

Now lets go through the voters and eliminate all those who have shot only 'plastic' guns.   Further to get a REAL inkling as to quality manufacturers, lets eliminate all those who have never owned a gun over 20 years old.

Longevity(durability and continued use), reliability(quality of workmanship and materials), inherent beauty....THOSE are the qualities that the BEST manufacturers put into the BEST guns.  When there are still 'plastic' guns made today being used 100years from now THEN they deserve to be listed in the BEST category, not until.

By the way it's absolutely shocking the number of people who do not realize that the polymers are an epoxy.   As such they, like other man-made, and natural organic materials 'out gas'.  Epoxy simply does so at a much slower rate, but it DOES have a predictable lifespan that is finite.   Might just be that your grandkids, or great grandkids might be inheriting a brittle chunk of stuff shaped like a gun. 

And before someone brings out the lifespan of some plastics, that is their existence lifespan, not there useful lifespan. 

These are just my opinions, based on my understanding... so no offense meant to anyone, I just feel that to say something just invented is the greatest because it is popular at present is not a reflection on its actual worth, or worthlessness.

I’ve seen tons of posts over the years on various gun forums concerning military M9s..… Military guys who claim to have seen morons in the military using their M9s as hammers and tools… Beating on the guns. Also, no one maintains round counts on the guns. So, they get poor maintenance, and no spring changes as necessary. So, no wonder they routinely don't work.. Add in crappy aftermarket mags to a gun that could be 15-20 years old... What do you expect...

Private owners seem to have much more luck with the Beretta.

Had the Sig or some other gun been chosen in the 80s, you'd be hearing the same complaints about it too...

Post by: Okstatefan on January 05, 2013, 10:49:13 PM
This was a tough decision. I like each pistol I own, and have traded every one that I didn't. There are some companies that I will never own another arm from again, some I just liked but didn't love, and a select few that will not be going anywhere.

Of my current batch, I have a Beretta 92fs Centurion since 1996. It is the gun I shoot the best with, have owned the longest, and would not get rid of.

OTOH, I also have a Sig P226 E.E. in 9mm with a 22lr conversion slide and I am saving pennies to get the .40cal Elite conversion kit. I have only had it sine last summer; but it is growing on me.

Then there is my Remington R1 version of the classic 1911. I rather prefer the 70 series safeties, but I shoot that dang R1 as well as anything I have ever put in my hands.

For me, I can grab just about any quality pistol and be good to go. For my family, I kind of like them in the Sig.

Well, I selected Browning, but it was mostly because I couldn't select Fabrique Nationale -- but then again that was for a bolt gun I own anyway.  :th_thicon_question:  I do own a couple of Browning semi-auto pistols, though, (made in Belgium by FN) and they are indeed finely crafted firearms. But being a .380 and a .22, neither are at the top of my list.  For that -- for my personal favorite -- I still gotta go with a Browning design, although it was first built by Colt: the 1911A1.  Still the best with unrivaled reliability, forged and tested in the crucible of more than century of war.

I've owned 7 HKs over the years - my favorite was the P2000 out of all of them.

I did own a P30L once. It was just a jam-o-matic. Normally I send stuff back into the manufacturer - but I ended up trading it back into the gun store (they knew of the problem. With that credit is how I got the Beretta 92 again that got me wanting Berettas.

So, I never really got to enjoy the P30L. But, the P2000 was really awesome

Post by: Jeb_66 on July 06, 2013, 01:17:49 PM
I do want a P30L DA/SA with safety. (Can't remember which version number that is).

I've shot a P30. It was cool, shot great. I liked it enough to put it on my want list, but I didn't like it more than my Beretta. Much less enough to pay double-ish for it. Lol.

Back in the day, I traded a Springfield 1911-9mm for a Glock 17 (Gen 1) because the 1911 was too heavy to carry for 12-14 hours a day.  Ended up trading the Glock for an M9 when the Glock recoil spring broke while returning fire during a domestic dispute.

I'm still a Beretta guy but I'll consider others if they feel right.  Not a big fan of plastic guns...I prefer some weight.

Very Hard to choose a favorite, as it depends on the type firearm.   Would Choose Remington and Beretta for shot guns, S&W for revolvers, Ruger overall for rim fire.   So many good choices.  Guess I will have to vote more than once!  Interesting distribution. 

Thanks for your site and work here shipwreck!

All comers are welcome at the newly founded Church of TriStar Arms. Our first sermon will begin with a reading from the book of Win.

Quote from: The Book of Win, Verses 11:7-14
"...Yea, TriStar made CZ clones and saw that they were good.
Then TriStar made the 5-year (1 year parts & labor, 4 years parts only) warranty on their pistols, and saw that this was also good.
But lo, Gilgondorin had [yet again....] sharked a pawn shop by buying a used like-new TriStar that was missing its extractor at a ridiculous markdown.
Luck carried the day, as few 'difficult' questions were asked, and hark, on the 6th business day, did Gilgondorin receive a newly repaired slide, free of charge.
But, Gilgondorin was not aware that TriStar was also a subscriber of the motto 'Ask, and Ye Shall Receive (minor/inexpensive/inconsequential things)" too,
For he ask'd with an included handwritten note, about outright buying a plastic clam shell case with foam insert.
Verily, TriStar were a bunch of O.G.'s and bestowed upon Gilgondorin one, also free of charge."

(Disclaimer: Still a avid CZ fan yo, but, y'know, with customer service like this, could probably definitely learn to like TriStar equally as much now too!!!)

No, I haven't done anything to the poll. I actually can't edit votes.

But I do have a link to this site in my signature at the Beretta Forum. I am on there a lot, and I funnel a lot of traffic here from that forum

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 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.

I would have thought Ruger would have made the list. Guess not, or, I just not seeing it. I will vote for Ruger as a write in candidate with a solid dependable platform. Not the sexiest new hotness, Just rugged reliability. P85, P89, Police Service Six, and LCPII Noisey Cricket. These are my vote !

All very solid models.  :thumbsup1:
I have many older rugers,love em and will NEVER trade them.
But its sad to say their new stuff is horrible for quality control.
I wont even look at anything new they build anymore.
I bought (2 ) nib SR's only to trade one back for a revolver and the other was so screwed up they totally refunded it.
Nothing worse than buying a brand new gun that needs sent back to be fixed before you even shoot it. :thumbsdown:

There's a lot of good ones out there. I voted STI. I have three ( Trojan 9mm, Elektra 9mm & Black Guardian 45ACP ), and the Guardian is the semi auto I enjoy shooting most. If the poll split revolvers & semi autos into separate categories, I'd go Freedom Arms for the revolvers. But they were not listed.

I chose other, and that other is LWRCI.  First shot one when the first generation REPR came out and my brother picked one up, loved it!  It ran the few different types of ammo and it ran both suppressed/unsuppressed flawless. 
  Few years later i picked up their first direct impingement AR15 they'd ever done and that's been my go-to for years.  I really like the ambidextrous controls and that they manufacture their lowers to M16 specs with the shelf for FA FCG, not that it matters since i dont have an M16 FCG, but i like to know the option is there should i ever want to do that.  IMO more options are always good.
  They're also very accurate!  Shot a few 3 round groups just a few weekends ago at Carters that were MOA/sub-MOA with regular Winchester 55gr. Ammo.

I carried a Glock for many years when I was still working. My personal guns are mostly Sig Sauer and Heckler & Koch. Glocks are reliable but to me just not as comfortable to hold as a Sig or H&K.
