Somebody is going to have an issue with every gun on the market no matter what brand it is. People tend to defend their pistol no matter how crappy it is(ex-highpoint) and bash the ones they no nothing about or have very little experience with. Thats just human nature. I tend to lean toward the pistols with a more solid reputation, ie-colt, kimber, sig, beretta because its just how I am. I tend to trust a reputation that has been established over years and years of use. So far I have not been let down with any gun purchase. But buy what you want and enjoy, hopefully it will go bang every time you need it too. Good luck and God Bless.
