I guess if it is judged by the most guns in my collection, it would be Ruger. Never intended it to be that.

I really like Smith & Wesson's story (I have 2 of them). Taken over by a bunch of socialists bent on holding the rest of the industry hostage. But then the company was rescued by the rest of the industry by use of a poison pill.

But i have to pick Springfield as my favorite since they are my hometown boys.

Star, best value/quality blend there ever was. Too bad they're now out of business and extremely hard to find parts for. I'd have almost everything they produced of it weren't for that.

If we're talking current production manufacturers... probably going to be Bersa or S&W, with a very close Taurus and Ruger!

I'm a big fan of Beretta, probably my favorite. I've only owned one but you couldn't make it jam.

Every one of my guns is made by a different manufacturer, so I guess I like em all

I've not been around the block enough to really judge anything like this. I like my two Rugers. I like them A LOT. But that Sig...........there's just something about that Sig.........

Mine would have to be every gun manufacturer I buy!!. If it is quantity then it is Ruger. I don't have a favorite because I buy what I want and not by company.
