    There are NO OTHER HANDGUNS worth owning beyond the Rhino Revolver. And I'm missing my left thumb just beyond the last joint...to PROVE it!

    I really am having trouble answering this one.
    I LOVE my Sigs but that does not mean I necessarily love the current production ones. I LOVE my S&W revolver but it is a pre-lock model. I wont buy a new one.

    My Springfield was OK but my friend had to send his back to the shop three times before they got it right.
    My Colts I traded in for a P220 and my S&W.
    I shot a friend's USP 9mm and it was OK.
    Never held a Glock that felt right.
    Never fired a Kahr or a Kimber.

    Okay, fine then...

    GLOCK on 1.
    Browning on 2. Because anything else...isn't a Browning!

    I voted Smith & Wesson but intend for that to mean only the more traditional pre-lock Smith & Wesson revolvers. I'm uninterested in Smith & Wesson models with locks.

    I also like the traditional Colt revolvers and all Browning-designed and Colt-manufactured automatics. I'm a fan of the High-Power.

    I'm not too keen on many current manufacturers. The SIG line has intrigued me for years. The CZ line has had some appealing models.

    Now that I already voted I may not have understood the poll. Smith & Wesson has produced my personal favorites. Glock has produced the most fanboys.

    Another 'trick' poll...Glock, of course...

    I only own one Glock but multiple other manufactures. The poll is about vocal fans. Not which is better or what you own. Glock wins this one hands down!

    I'm a fan of all my gun makes. If not, I get rid of it.

    I'm a Ruger fanboy.

    In terms of the most vocal fanboys, its gotta be the Glocktards.

    Re: Biggest Fanboys/girls?

    I think the Glock fanatics take the cake, these days I am definitely imbibing the HK ambrosia.

    I picked the S&W. Only, because I like their revolvers, not the other copied crap, including the Governor they make.

    If it's a revolver, it's got to be a Smith, if it's an auto, Colt, Glock and CZ are my hands down choices.
    I wouldn't waste money on the rest.

    if I'd had at least ONE failure in 20 years of shooting them, I would not be such a vocal advocate of the brand.....but I have had none....so it would be

    GLOCK.
