I would never buy one of those Rhorbach's they seem incredibly expensive for what you are getting

Not sure it is appropriate to call someone a "fool" when you ask a question and get a reply you done like or agree with.

Some fool voted for Beretta  :scream3:
Three fools voted for Glock.  :facepalm:



I can only speak for myself, but I wouldn't buy a Glock because they just don't fit my hand. I can't shoot one with any consistent accuracy. I'll stick to 1911's, full sized Sigs and Beretta 92  series pistols.

That's my very same reason, hate the grip... wouldn't keep one if it was given to me, it would be resold without thinking twice.

Some of the "regulars" harass the guys here who like Berettas. If you stick around, you'll see it. No one here who has been around a while would interpret my comment any other way but a joke.

As for Glocks - I voted for that one personally. I've owned 5 over the years. Zero interest in owning another. Not a bad gun - just not one I want anymore

I voted Kahr.  All their offerings are DAO, which is a deal killer for me.  The MUCH better half could never fire more than one or two rounds out of a DAO even if it had the softest of triggers.  So if she can't operate it, I won't buy it, even if it's for me.  She has very limited hand/finger strength and really struggles with DA trigger pulls.  I always wonder why so many mfgs don't wake up and see that there is a significant portion of the population that struggles with DAO trigger pulls.  Small women.  Elderly.  Those with arthritis. A lot of Sig guns can at least be converted from DAO to DA/SA (which I did to my 239 so the MUCH better half can shoot it).  When they announced the P250 was only going to be offered in DAO I said it wouldn't sell well.  It hasn't exactly set the world on fire.  I realize some love DAO for its simplicity, but there are a lot of people who cannot use a DAO handgun.  I happen to be married to one, so DAO is a deal killer for me.

I'd also second the Kimber vote if I could go back and vote for more than one (wasn't aware I could).  They're VASTLY over priced for what they are.  And a lot of folks are saying that their quality control isn't what it used to be.  Even what it used to be, a lot of Kimber owners talk about sending their guns back to them 2 or 3 times before they run right. 

Now, how can I go back and vote for Beretta................
