The Test
 
So I want to know what the most dependable firearm is in your opinion. I think you can guess the one I pick lol. Who has put their favorite models to the test and how did they perform

I've owned two guns that never experienced a single failure, no matter what ammo they were loaded with. One was a Springfield XD9, which I no longer own (too bulky and heavy) and my current Bersa Thunder 9 Ultra Compact Pro. Never owned a Glock. ;)

I've seen glocks fail, despite the hype. My 92, never ever. Rain and snow no problems. Humid summers and bitter cold winters. I shot everything out of it from hallow points. To cheap ball and even frangibles. I carried it everyday as my service sidearm and never thought twice about it's capabilities in defending my life.

Now I own a Px4, same story... Never a ftf never a hiccup love her dearly.

However, I don't regularly throw my sidearm into a puddle of mud... and marketing is lost on me so what a magazine is paid to depict about a gun is useless in my eyes. I like the tried and true method...and a beretta has never let me down

How about a g17 OD? (That's slick on the sly)


My Steyr M40A1 has never hiccupped. My Taurus 92 and G34s have only hiccupped due to ammo issues.

If I may have a little liberty...

The most UNreliable firearm I've seen was one that came from someone attempting to do mods and not knowing what they were doing.

I had an od 17 but my stupid ass sold it

I see this for shooters a lot. We all have our favorite brands and models. I do like berreta a lot. I had an m9 and it was sweet. I will get a 92 fs ASAP trust that. But my GLOCK did what was told was a factory jam twice and then never again. So all firearms are only as good as the person holding them. But one brand I will never buy again is jimenez arms. I bought one of their JA-22 for jogging and it had FTF almost ever other round. I also hate the sigma series by S&W. I had one and the slide almost came of whilst firing it. Talk about scary.

I would have sold the stupid ass and bought a smart mule. :)
