    • Heckler and Koch
    • Glock
    • Springfield
    • Smith and Wesson
    • Colt
    • Kahr Arms
    • Kimber


    If you were a going to be labeled a "fan", of which manufacturer and why?

    Beat me to it!
    Biggest fanboys: Springfield. ~ "Only 3 FTE's in 100 rounds. I'll stake my life on that, everyday!"
    For me: Heckler and Koch. "Because you suck. And we hate you".

    Hope everyone knows this is all meant in good humor....

    Why can't you vote? Do you think another manufacturer has the title of biggest fanboys? Pick one.

    you asked if we were going to be labeled a "fan" of which manufacturer and why. I can't be labeled as such is what I mean.

    Now, if you want me to pick which brand has the most fanboys/girls, it's hands down Glock. It's a friggin cult.

    No Ruger? I equally split my manlove between Ruger and Glock.

    I voted Colt. Glock was a very close second. My vote was probably swayed from the recent "discussion" in the Windham tour video thread. Between the 6920 and 1911s, I read it non-stop. But really, I could care less either way about what people suggest but some people go way too far when someone disagrees with them.

    You need a longer list. None of the one I own are there.

    Sig.

    But I think Glock fanboys are more vocal.

    Poll question! Am I to pick the brand to whom I exhibit the most "fanboy" type dedication? Or the brand that seems to attract the most "intractable" of rabid zealots?

    Browning on 1.
    GLOCK on 2.

    I admit I did some pre-editing. I left off Ruger, FN and CZ because their fans seem to be rational when it comes to discussing their products.
    I am a huge CZ fan but not to the point of saying that everyone should dump their guns in a pit and buy one because it will give them super human accuracy at the range.......
