Default Gun Choosing Tool

We've created this tool called a Piki to help you find the gun that's perfect for you, based on your preferences and priorities. We're trying to make the tool comprehensive so that people seeking gun information, both experts and novices alike, can get quick facts about the guns they're looking into.

We'd really like it if any of the regulars here could check out our tool and let us know if you have any ideas to make it better. We know finding the right gun is very important for people looking to make their next purchase, and with your help we can make this Piki the perfect place to start your search.

I just went through a few minutes and noticed that the list of guns is incomplete (no XDm that I can find) and only one caliber is shown in some that comes in various calibers. Caliber are wrong like, 357.00 millimeters for a .357 magnum or 40.00 millimeters for .40 cal.

Check this link...you might learn a few things from them

Genitron.com - Handgun Database Statistics and Rankings

Sample output...
Genitron.com - Top 100 Ranked By Defense Factor - Filter: 9 mm Pistols

Sample gun details...

Good luck!!!

I think the Army had some of those 357 mm guns.
Down around Ft. Monroe

That is a joke, but I could if anyone is interested.

BTW, those on this forum have been helping me choose my first gun. I did some more shooting today and am homing in on my gun. I'm back to a polymer (though I loved the Sig I shot). I'll start a more appropriate thread, but as you see, I'm the guy who needs the fpiki.

Thanks everyone.
