So 75% of the answer to the question is "whatever I bought". 25% is gun envy.

Not sure for everyone that is the truth, many people buy and are dissatisfied so its not allways "whatever i bought" however the others whom post that they have a good gun is from their experience with what they bought in a positive manner, its theyre possible only experience...

Makes sense to me. Most will only recommend what they have experience with, anything else, would be speculation and hearsay. Even if one heard from a reputable source. In my case I've owned / shot many different handguns, my USP is still my EDC, and the only hand gun envy I may have is admittedly the Colt 1911....ill fix that soon,, very soon. Lmao

I've shot a small variety of handguns glock 1911 sig sauer I love the glock it's accurate in simple simple to clean 1911 is my favorite though things has history behind it and it's just an all around awesome gun it's difficult to clean but definitely worth it as for the sig sauer I've only rented the gun not really sure about those

but if I had to go price range accuracy and simplicity to clean definitely the glock. I've seen my uncle with his mini 40 cal glock shoot 50 yards dead on

Incorrect Scott. That's not a very bright statement.

As a former hard core Glock owner I have to agree with you, though my Kimber Ultras are my new favorite now. Incredibly accurate & smooth

Great idea. I see a lot of different models at the range. People

let me try theirs, I let them try mine.

Rent, rent, rent before you buy, and worry more about what

you shoot well and like, than what the net dribblers and

LGS "experts" have to say.

The best handgun for me is a 92 or 1911A1. The best

handgun for my neighbor across the street is a Glock 19.

The best handgun for my next door neighbor is a

S&W 38 Special Snub-nose. What do they all have in common?

They all feel right and shoot well, to each his own...
