    See a bunch of these every day. What's the best 1911? What's the best 9mm? What's the best revolver?

    The answer is - there ain't one. Guns are a very subjective topic as what works great for me may suck for you. If you're looking for advice, please provide enough information so we can at least help. For example:

    What's the gun for? range plinking, home defense, concealed carry, etc.

    What's your budget? If you have $1000+ to spend there are lots more options than if you have $300.

    Any features you want or don't want? Could be rails, safties, interchangeable grips, etc.

    What experience do you have?
    What training have you had?
    New gun or used gun?
    Revolver or semi-auto?

    The more info you provide, the more likely one of our experienced members can help you out - and may have personal experience with exactly what you're searching for...

    i disagree, there is one, for each individual there is "THE BEST" and they live and die by it, now is there a best period? i doubt it, but to the man holding it, with experience under his belt with it, their is a BEST :D i know when i was asking about it, thats what i was trying to find out, how many "THE BEST" there were so i could find "THE BEST" for me

    OK, I'll defer to your vast experience. My point was - I know what's best for ME - but that doesn't mean it's best for YOU...

    Taking personal opinions and applying them to others as in "The Best" makes no sense. Everyone has their own opinion of what is the best. For instance, you may know the best sweatpants for you, but they probably won't be for me. Someone else may know what the best truck is for them, but it may not work the best for you.

    Not even an arguable issue.

    I think some people confuse "most expensive" with "best"

    lol

    my point exactly, just like if i was from japan and wanted to know what the best truck was here in America, som would say Ford some would say Chevy or Dodge...so i would go look at a few of those that came recomended and see which one "I THINK" is "THE BEST" for me :D i wuold not go jump into a honda ridgeline when it was not recomended

    And thusly you are limiting youself to other people's opinions. That was my point. Are you a sheeple or a person who makes your own decisions?

    i am a man who respects the opinions of those who have fired more bullets out of more guns than i could even dream about, so in saying that i look for experienced opions instead of waisting my time,if you dont like the way i research before i buy my guns i would saya simple solution is dont reply :D not throw a fit lol

    Simpler solution: I reply as I wish.

    Even more nearly simple: Learn the caliber of any arm you purchase.

    The most simple of all: Learn what you like and go from there.

    Just because you throw in a :D in the middle of your nearly unreadable babble does not lessen the attitude. Should I decide to 'throw a fit', you won't even know.

    Jusselin, if your goal is to alienate the contributing SM's of this forum you are doing a great job...

    lol forgive my "attitude" but you were the one who i believe started the question of character, like i said, if you dont like the way i research you are more than welcome to not reply, however this is America and if you wish to get butt hurt, well you have that right also, its no secret that i am not as familiar with guns as most here , that is why i ask my questions, it really aggrivates me though when some one feels my question should have been kept off the forum and then starts a thread about it.... i dont think i am the one with the attitude here (i could be wrong, and probably am) but all i did was ask a question, then when a member or two decided that they were not happy with that question, well one started a thread about why people ask questions, the other asked why i dont make my own decision

    i replied

    they dont like my reply

    thread goes no where except butt hurtville

    Dude, I used to make your freshman mistakes. Now they call me a sophomore and I still make mistakes, but not as many. Be cool. And your "lol"s and emoticons are not going to take the sting out of your words.

    goal was to get a few replies on what 1911 people here thought was the best, i never asked which one trumps them all, i just wanted to get some feedback, and you didnt like the fact that i asked that question, dont know how it bothered you, but some how it hit a nerve....all i was asking for was some feedback,

    Feel free to elaborate on this. You seem to have these kind of acts on the brain. Was it not you who decided that I had your hairy balls in my mouth, and now you want to butt hurt me? How old are you? I just want to make this legal.
