1. Glock-17

Glock pistols have become the most profitable line of products, taking up 65% of the market share of handguns in the United States, in spite of preliminary opposition from the market due to strength and reliability concerns.

 

2. Smith & Wesson .500 S&W Magnum

This company is the largest manufacturer in the United States. Their guns are used in many Hollywood films such as Clint Eastwood’s Dirty Harry. The .500 S&W Magnum is considered the best commercial sporting handgun cartridge by the muzzle energy it makes. The gun is a double action revolver, which provide clients with power and velocity. No gun has been able to imitate this. However, due to high recoil, it is not for novices and should be used with caution.

    @David P.Curcione N.R.A. – You’re talking about the FN Five SeveN 5.7x28mm, right? Yeah, I have no idea how it did not make the cut for this list. This list is off in more than just the omission of the FN Five SeveN, but also the Sig Sauer P226. The P250?!? Man, where is the “History” behind that particular choice?? And as far as Sig’s go, I’ve owned a P226, a P229, and most recently a SP2022.

    “The SIG SAUER polymer framed pistols has earned an enviable reputation and proven track record of reliable performance in the hands of law enforcement professionals. In December of 2004 the U.S. Army Tank-automotive and Armaments Command at the Rock Island Arsenal awarded SIG SAUER a contract for 5,000 SIG SAUER SP2022 pistols chambered in 9mm.” – Sig Sauer Official Website http://www.sigsauer.com/CatalogProductList

    I’ve loved every Sig I’ve ever owned. Also every Beretta – including the “px4 Storm”. I imagine I will love the FN Five Seven, when I get my hands on one, as well.

    Overall, weird list.

    Only a complete douche goes for a 50 cal pistol. Sure S&Ws is well made but even so it’s still horribly impractical and complete overkill unless you are somehow face-to-face with a pissed off elephant. Seriously, only douche bags go for BS like that. Most of the rest of the list is questionable, only about two or three I could see deserving of the list, but after seeing the number 2 I realize the kind of person who wrote the list.

    Glock 17 or 18? Beretta 92FS over Beretta 93R? Also why is the 1911A1 so far down the list? where is the Automags, the Hardballers? This list sucks. Also the Sig Sauer P226 is a great gun! I love me some .40 S&W sweetness. I’m also curious where the Colt Delta Elite is? The Mauser C96? Alright guys let’s write a new list!

    *Glock 17 over 18? Also you forgot one more little beauty while were on Handguns, strictly pistols, revolvers should have their own top 10s. But what about the Browning HP-35? Mean little sucker, I’d add that to my list in the other comment if there was a edit button!

    Lastly I’m quite shocked anything from CZ didn’t make the list, they’ve made some fine pistols over the years, then again considering the other omissions I guess I’m not THAT shocked :P
    Throw in a CZ75B it’ll do ya some good! Also you guys are right the FN Five Seven shoulda def made the list. And the HK USP, always loved that gun. That’s about all the great pistols I can think of. Besides about 4 on the current list.

    What criteria were used to choose the weapons? Were they most sought after, most expensive, most government contracts, most powerful, or most fun to write about?

    “The Beretta 92 is of Italian origin. It fires a 9x19mm Parabellum cartridge.” Bullshit. Talking of douchebags and the like, you guys are freaking unobservant as moles. Whoever wrote this story needs to get their eyes checked. Without enlarging the picture even I as blind as I am, can read the stamp on the gun. MOD 92 FS – cal.177/6.5mm I’m thinking that would be a good way to piss off some perps.
