That list is not my personal list, per se.

I am trying to guess which models are the most popular among people these days. That list was in the interest of your GunMat business.



P.S. I do like the 9mm. I believe it's under rated these days.

Top 10 most popular handguns (or handgun styles?)

I don't know for sure, but I'd say the 1911s, the Beretta/Taurus 92s, perhaps the Taurus 24/7, and the flagship full-sized pistols from other companies like Glock, Sig, CZ, Springfield, Para Ordinance, etc.

And then maybe the Ruger MKIII, Beretta Neos, and Browning Buckmark for .22 pistols?

Default I'll choose reliability and accuracy any day...

...and you don't always get what you pay for.

My choices:
Sig Sauer 220
Browning Hi-Power (NOT the copies!)
Colt Commander
Kimber or Ed Brown 1911
Sig 226
H&K USP 45
Taurus 99 (better than Beretta)
S&W .357 Combat Magnum
Colt Diamonback .22 4"
S&W Chiefs Special

I have the urge to point out that most of these lists seem to be based on how revolutionary the firearm is not so much the performance because honestly... the original colt 1911 and even the A1 arent that amazing, they were for their time but heres my list for handguns purely based on performance.

1. The springfield XD, it has out shot pretty much every handgun for the last two years.
2. The H&K P7, small, incredibly accurate for its small barrel, and has little to no jamming issues.
3. Almost every glock ever made namely the 17, 19, 22, and 26. never jam great accuracy, safe, high capacity. ive only ever had one jam on me and it was because the owner never took care of it.
4. The kimber Eclipse Custom II. Like all Kimbers fantastic, accurate, well built. only problem is sometimes they're stingy when it comes to cheap ammo.
5. Sig P220, wow... great gun, lots of power, never had a problem with it.
6. Beretta 92, revolutionary and it still stands it's ground (personally like PXstorm more but whatever)

There are more fantastic handguns out there but those are the few that i honestly think are the best performing guns today.

Here's my list:

1) Colt 1911 .45
2) USP .45
3) Glock 17 9mm
4) Taurus PT92 9mm
5) SIG Sauer P226 9mm
6) Smith & Wesson 629 .44 Magnum
7) Colt Python .357 Magnum
8) Rock Island Armory 1911 .45
9) Para Ordinance 1911 .45
10) Desert Eagle .44 Magnum

Just a little list of some of the ones I like. I don't know too much about guns as I'm pretty new to them so don't ridicule me for this. As you can tell, I'm a 1911 fan. Tell me what you think, if you have any changes or suggestions.
