My father in law had a craptastic little 380 many years ago. It was a Davis Ind.
I would NEVER purchase something like that, all pot metal and broken firing pins/strikers.

Yuck.

I'd probably have to say HighPoint then, although seeing a guy's extractor come flying off his Taurus during our CHL qual did not fill me with confidence!

I voted Taurus. I still own three, but I have had 7. One, a PT-92, that I traded was flawless but the other three all had horrible malfunctions and I doubt I would trust another one. Maybe another PT-92 but nothing else.

Guy wanted me to work on his taurus. I said no, i refuse to work on those, too many problems and i do not want to be held responsible if it breaks and hurts you. This was after he was loudly telling me and my friend how he would sue someone over something little to get rich. Haaaa. Idiot

I know I'm liable to get ragged about this, but I personally wouldn't buy a Glock. I know they are good handguns and a lot of folks like em, but I haven't held one yet that that feels good in my hand.
Far enough away from Houston that I don't see it or hear it, but close enough if I need something.

Neah, a LOT of it's just personal preference.  Don't worry, Michael won't trip out on you. 



Well, you are a Beretta guy.  So he MIGHT.   :th_thicon_lol:
