First let me say that I agree with the statement that my gun is better than yours. Let me also say that I agree with the statement that your gun is better than mine. I hear and see the argument all of the time and the answer is simple. The better gun is the one that you carry and have trained with. I recieve many Gun magazines and I agree with one quote in a advertisement. Amateurs talk hardware and pros talk training. Is there room for product debate ?, yes. Is there a answer that will put this to bed ?, No. With most of the current firearm companies a consumer will get a product that can outperform and outlast them. There are exceptions, but most of us recognize them and accept them for what they are. I can take any firearm and create a FTF, FTE, and a list of problems if I try. Let me finish by saying that MY GUN IS BETTER THAN YOURS. You just have to take my word for it.
