Not much for RTF Glocks??


One thing about Glock is that you can really customize with after market accessories.

The LCR is by far the most innovative piece to come along in quite awhile. With it's smooth pull and light weight, it is going to become the revolver of choice for many CC folks.

I voted for Ed Brown. Just shoot one and you will understand. Perfect as perfect can be in both build and function.

I think they are the best the way the come from the factory. For me, there is no need for any after market accessories.

I just installed night sights on my all of the Glocks. I think that make hell of a diffeeence. I have also ordered a threaded barrel and a suppressor for my G21. I am leaving all the internals as Gaston intended.

Ruger gets my vote. There is one thing I enjoy more than a gun company being innovative and breaking new ground, and that's it being an American company.

Sure will. I am not sure when I will get them but I have placed the order with a local dealer who will get them imported from the US.

Voted with my wallet :)

I bought two pistols in 2009, both Dan Wesson. So it should be an easy guess to figure out what my vote in this poll was. I did a LOT of research before I got the first one in June. Liked it so much I added a second last month

The CBOB and RZ45 Heritage both are fitted with Sarge's Finer Grain grips and Greider-Videcki short adjustable match triggers. Great stuff!

In past few days Glock has really gained votes to come second, however, distant second to Ruger. Seems like Glock guys just started voting.

4 days left for the poll to close.

It looks like that Ruger will take the day with Glock rallying to second and still a close call on the third place between SW and Springfield. However, it is for sure that Styer has been the least favorite pistol in 2009!

Where are the Glocksters in this poll? Or will they chime in this time next year with RTF praises?
Once you reach the pinnacle of Perfection, where else can you go and what more needs to be said that the products don't already say for themselves?

Actually my vote goes to Ruger. They have been on a roll for the last couple or three years with the SR9, LCP, SR-15, Mini-14 improvements, the M-77 Hawkeye, reintroduction of standard cap magazines, the introduction of very good and well thoughtout proprietary cartridges and most of all......... a departure from the Old Man's naive and antiquated company policies that were made out of political expedience that ****** most of us off.


Ruger has earned it's customers and respect back.

Now make me a 5 1/2" Redhawk in .454 Casull.
