Default Brand Names

Didn't know where else to put this, but do you go by or stick with brand names? For me, Ruger for handguns and Remmington for long guns. Any other thoughts?

Nope. I am not stuck on certain brands. I will say, however, that I prefer certain brands over others because of their warranty. Kimber, bad warranty. Smith and Wesson, very good warranty. Springfield Armory, superior warranty.

No surprise that a bunch of my handguns are S&W and SA. Others are Kahr, which has a lame warranty, but have an awesome line of carry guns.

I just like to buy the best of each type of gun.

Every gun is different and every manufacturer has cheap rifles and nicer ones

I kind of have a thing for Brownings, but I wouldn't not buy a gun I like just because of the brand.

I don't "stick with certain brands" aka am not a fan boy. I try to buy the best quality I can afford, brand means little if the firearm is a quality piece. I DO avoid certain brands like Jennings, Bryco, Kimber (because of their poor customer service).

I have Colts,S&Ws,Heritage,H&R and Rugers I like them all each and every one of them has something different to offer.
I think if you just limit yourself to one or two makes of firearms you are missing out on a lot.

I try to stick with Made in the U.S.A. companies more than a certain company.

My favorite handgun is Ruger. I own 2 single actions and a P95 (my Fall & Winter CCW). I very fond of old American made shotguns. I own a 1968 High Standard Flite King and it's probably my single favorite firearm.
Just finished an AR build using parts some of which I was familiar with and some from companies I have never used before. The parts I like; The Del Ton dissapator upper, the FAB Defense brand magazine well grip and forward grip/bipod and every Magpul brand accessory (flip up rear site, 30 round mags w/ window, sling & single point sling attachment) and I HIGHLY recommend their products..... Now the lower is a polymer made by Plum Crazy. Extremely light, feeds reliably and (so far) no complaints... except it took me a while to get use to balancing the weapon because the barrel is heavy and the lower so light.

It's great to be brand loyal, but some GREAT new stuff is out there also.
