I see the 'best pistol brands' on just about every gun forum. Well, I'm interested in seeing how everyone ranks the top five best series of handguns. Rankings should be based on reliability, durability, cost, customer service, and just your overall love of the series. Caliber doesn't matter. This should be fun
1. Ruger SRs (for cost and reliability)
2. Smith and Wesson M&Ps (a close second)
3. Glock compacts
4. Springfield XDs
5. CZ P-01
If I had to throw in the worst, I would pick Taurus, Hi-Point, and some of the guns in the $900+ category. I can't justify paying that much when I can get the same or better durability and reliability out of a cheaper Glock for example. I also can't by super cheap crap. Sorry I can't list any series, but I'm not too familiar with any of the ones I wouldn't pick. I'll leave that to the more experienced owners.
