    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 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.

    My issued M9 never had a malfunction. My Smith and Wesson wouldn't shoot at all when I first got it. 2 hours of web surfing and a quick inspection revealed that the main spring tensioner screw had backed out, customer reviews say it could have been a previous owner trying to lighten the trigger pull. I cranked it down tight and have never had another issue. My grandfather had an old Colt .22 that would hardly ever return to battery after a shot, I suspected a weak spring, never heard the verdict.

    My mom has one a JA 22, she loves it. Reliable for her as long as she doesn't top off the mag.

    We all know what opinions are worth, but here are mine.
    For semi reliability it's simple. Sig, HK, and Glock. I just don't like Glocks. They're like the old '70s brick Volvos. You know it'll work forever, but it's not getting you laid.:D
    For revolvers, You just can't beat a Ruger Security Six.

    +1 on the Bersa. It just pounds them out there everytime. Now I did have a slide guide rod hole wear out with the slide being replaced, but it stayed shooting right to the end of th at slide and has picked right back up where it left off.

    My most dependable so far, in no particular order are my Bereatta 92f, Sig P229, Glock 19 and my Kimber Pro Raptor.
