Poll - Favorite Gun Manufacturer?!?!

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.

Looks like Glock is kicking butt.
Oh come on.....if you paid thousands of dollars for the very best, top grade 1911 and some clown comes along and beats you with a $400 plastic pistol, wouldn't you hate Glocks too?-

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.

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"

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.

I have owned several over the years, and have a Custom Shop 1911 from them. But I wouldn't say they are my all time fav... :)
