    IS there one out there...everybody likes but you just dont see the big deal?

    Russian military stuff is that for me. I dont get the appeal of Mosins/SKS type stuff.

    For me, it's the Ruger 10/22 rifle,,,
    In any configuration.

    I know they are quality firearms,,,
    And I have fired a bunch of them over the years,,,
    But for some reason they have never called out to my heart.

    Several years back I jumped on the bandwagon and purchased one,,,
    I took it to the range and ran 200 rounds through it,,,
    Then it sat in a case in my closet for two years.

    I eventually sold it.

    To me, the rifle truly defines the term, Meh!

    Glocks

    I know they are a great, super reliable firearm. When it comes to reliability I know they are the gold standard. However manufacturering processes, quality components, and mechanical engineering across the industry has caught up. I have Rugers, Sigs, S&Ws, etc that I trust as much as I would a Glock. Maybe it’s because I am on the younger side of the gun world and didn’t live in the era where it wasn’t always that way. To me they lack in ergonomics as compared to a lot of the guns in the industry. I get that you put enough rounds down range your body learns so love it, but there are so many better options off the shelf. But the biggest turn off is the elitist mentality some of the Glock fanboys have. Not all, in fact it’s a very small percentage but they are a loud minority. There are a few LGS that I will not go back to because a salesman tried to push me on to a Glock acting like all other guns are shit comparatively. You see it with all makes but Glock has the biggest following of this mentality.

    I don't get anything Sig myself, and I admit i have a real hatred for Sig after the way the they F***ed their costumers over with the 556 rifle. But then I hate Colt but cant dispute their guns are top notch. With Sig's pistols though, the appeal just isn't there for me

    Agree with the Mosin/SKS stuff. I do like the Makarov pistols.
