1. Ruger, I've had my Mini 14 for 30+ years now and it's been solid and reliable for all that time. Had a 10/22 for 34 years and it was very reliable, one of the saddest days of my life when I had to sell it.

2. Colt, owned 2 Combat Commanders (at different times), really love the Commander would love to get a replacement.

3. Savage, they build a nice rifle, I had one and it was capable of shooting far better than I could.

The Colt 1911 102 years of service. It remains the choice of knowledgeable handgun owners.

Apparently my favorite (not handguns but overall) are custom gun makers, one in particular, but commercially it has to be Browning. Boy do they orchestrate some nice arms!

Probably have to be Ruger...because of the quality, price and ergonomics. Haven't met a Ruger yet that doesn't feel good to hold or shoot. Also Springfield Armory...Barrett...Sig...FN...and of course the Colt 1911A1

There's just something special about a Smith & Wesson .357 Combat Magnum Revolver (in my case, Model 19-3, born December 16, 1970).

The majority of my guns are Rugers. But all of my Rugers have had cosmetic changes made to suit me, so they have never produced what would be my favorite gun right out of the box.

The only one that has done that is Uberti. I have threee Ubertis all of which are box stock.

Colt may be onto something, if I ever see one and get my hands on one, the New Frontier in .44 Special. And, Colt does have an unsurpassed .45 Auto pistol.
