Yeah at least you tried out everything so you know what you like best and are content to stick with them.
Not sure many of us could handle that.

its hard to choose one

Agreed...I like my Kimber and my XD40, I love my FN57, and I really like my buddy's Sig and his Baby Eagle. 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.

If everybody shot a Glock at least once they would fall in love and vote on this thread then glock would win and then go buy a Glock and then hold it and love it and shoot all of moms nice china and then live happily ever after.

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.

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

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.

If the aliens ever landed and Glock made a 9mm carbine, I'd buy one (it's been rumored for so long, that aliens probably will land before they ever make one)

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.

You mean we haven't all tried out, much less owned an SVI (oops not listed) or Volkmann?

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....

Oh come on now, Glock makes only 1 real model of gun, just size/caliber variations, how is it now tied with Springfield?

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.
