S&W

I have to claim Smith & Wesson. There Prices are high but there Quality is undeniable. As far as style goes, I can't get enough of there look and the design of all the weapons, new and old! Not to mention the enormous amount of gun to choose from.
I vote for Smith & Wesson.

too many to choose...my vote probably goes to springfield. they don't offer any low quality products. from xd's to 1911 to M1's. you gotta respect the armory! also sig sauer, from their top of the line handguns to blaser and sauer precision rifles to the 556, they offer great quality firearms. next would probably be FN Herstal. from machine guns, to sniper rifles to handguns, they offer it all! S&W is good too.

Most of my money has gone to CZ's, XD's, S&W's, and of course Mossberg's. I've owned at least 3-4 firearms from each maker. Not to mention a few rugers in between too!

1911 Springfield A. and colt

I have to vote Ruger as well. I use the M77 action for all my hunting purposes.

Has to be the best. Very pricey but worth the money in the long run. Plus if you're going to trust your life to a weapon why buy a cheap one.

Before Colt changed I would have said Colt. They have a long history with the Peacemaker and the 1911 Government models. I am particularly fond of my Colt Delta Elite 1911 Series 80 10mm.

Smith & Wesson produces good looking products in semi automatics and revolvers. Their strong point is revolvers. Recently they came out with the 460 S&W and the 500 S&W revolvers. I also love the S&W 610 revolvers in 10MM. I have one with the 3 7/8 barrel. I recently acquired a S&W 500 4" barrel and love to shoot it. With the compensator, hogue grips, and 56 oz weight it does not recoil that bad.

Ruger would be my next choice because of the strength and sheer mass of their revolvers. The have very strong locking mechanisms with a lot of metal. I have a lot of Rugers; Vaqueros, Single Six, and Redhawk.

Springfield Armory will most likely supply my next gun either an XDM or 1911 style. I love their products and they have an extensive line to offer.

These are my top four gun companies. I like the 10MM cartridge and would like to acquire a Kimber Stainless Target II. According to gun writers this is the premier 10MM semi auto.

I am partial to CZ's because they will eat anything you put in them. I have yet to own one which will jam, stack or fail to eject. They are a all metal unless you opt for the one polymer they make Phantom. Gunsmithing on them is something anyone with any mechanical aptitude can do on their own and the parts are not cost prohibitive in the least.

Magazines are a bit pricey but you can find them at decent pricing on the web.

I carry a 9 mm with 20 rounds in it every where I go either cocked and locked or hammer down in double action for the first round.

After CZ, Sig Sauer, Springfield, Colt, Tuarus then Kimber...

I've only shot one.

The guy who owns it had already torn it down and done his habitual ritual on every 1911 he gets. So a stock one I have no idea, but with some polishing lightened trigger and straight 8 sights on it, the weapon is damn fine.

Dead nuts accurate, no FTF or FTE, 45 feet 4 inch groups rapid fire with a 10 round mag in it.

It's a solid choice, I would would get one as a starting point for making my own custom or as a Truck gun which I didn't fear mucking up on me in a time of serious need.

OK, I reckon I can go along with that. I aint shot nor even held one, but, they took over Dan Wesson and will sell you parts and factory support for the 15 series revolver.

Glock. I don't know how good or bad their customer service is, and I don't know how good they are about honoring their warranties, but in both cases it's because I've never needed anything after the sale. Except more ammo.
