We need more Colt and Springfield folks out here to voice there opinion. Surely their numbers are far greater than these polls reflect.
Because of this poll, I'll never buy a Springfield or Colt. I guess I'll stick with Glocks. Sigs have disappointed in this poll. I thought they'd be in close contention with Glock.

best pistol

I my presonal favorite is the Glock Model 22 .40cal.
It shoots real well.And fits my rather large hands very well.
This is just my.02 cents.

This is your all purpose pistol (the one you carry all the time) not for any specific situation of purpose
It is what it is. my Kimber gets 95% of my carry time, last 5% is my S&W 340PD

I'm surprised the Kahr got such little votes.

Also, what the hell is a Korth?

1. Glock

In that order.

Three days left for poll to close

Calling out all the 1911 lovers to vote for their favorite manf since after Glock wins this poll- there will be no more debate as Glock will dominate and establish its superiority over the rest!

With a MSRP or $4,000.00 for the revolver....

http://gundirectory.gunsandammomag.c...ic_6/korth_164

and $6,000.00 for the semi-automatic pistol, they better be something truly special.

I love my Glock 22. I'm really getting used to shooting the .40 S&W, it feels very comfortable and the accuracy is outstanding.

According to this thread, everything sucks but Glock & Sig. So that means Glock is #1, and Sig is #2; which we already knew.

No surprises in this poll. Glock, Sig and HK on top.

HK didn't do as well as I thought in the poll either. I kind of like the P2000SK, but according to this poll, HK's are nowhere near as good as Glocks and Sigs.

Same here. I actually like some of the HK pistols. I thought they would poll slightly higher.

Everyone's best pistol is the one that saved their life. The one they grabbed when TSHTF.

The gun you own to carry does you no good if when the time comes, you're NOT carrying it. Make your choice accordingly.

Pick a pistol that you don't get uncomfortable with carrying or shooting. And practice .. a lot.

in hk's defense

well it was tough competition for all pistol not just because Glock was contesting but also the fact that there was no multi poll option.

So folks voted for the best pistol. I am glad that common sense prevailed and glock was the choice of people with sig and hk to follow.

At least now all those 1911-loving-glock-haters are stiffled by the results. No sound there at all.
