Some of you may have seen the thread about FrontSight yesterday...
Anyways, while on the website I found a "What kind of gun are you" test and discovered it only had three possibilities. I don't think that's enough, here's a test with ten outcomes.

I couldn't fit many handguns into the test since it would only allow me 10 options. Still, it's only 14 questions long, so it takes about 30 seconds.

I'm an XD .45.

What are you?

Oh the irony!!! It said I am a Glock 17, the first pistol I ever purchased. I guess it was my destiny.

I am also a G17, which was also the first pistol I ever purchased (1st Gen, around 1990). Maybe Ninja and I are long-lost brothers :D

My Glock was stolen from me a few years ago...:(

I'm the only one who has been (correctly) identified as a 1911 so far. I'm okay with that.:cool:

Pre lock 686 :)

I'm a Colt guy, but that's close enough for me.

Well the test is partially flawed, #1 choice was 1911 but I don't care for the 1911.

Second choice was 686 which I'd do and then the last one the one I'd NEVER own is the Kel tec P3at and that's correct.

Oh c'mon, a Glock 17 ? Why do I even bother with these things. Everyone who knows me knows I'm either a Dardick or Gyrojet. :p

It seems I'm a TC Encore. Close runners-up are the S&W 686, 1911, and XD45. I only own one of those pistols, and it's not the first 3 choices.

i am a thompson center ?!?! nothing against it, but NEVER would i own this gun.hahahaha. second pick was pretty close, the s&w 686. i chose the GP100 in actuality, but still that is kind of one and the same in a way.

You must be my long lost much older brother, I turned 7 in 1990. :what:

Another pre lock S&W 686. Sounds about right to me.

I also got 686.

Had to choose which one I preferred, Bush or Obama....no choice for "neither". And it asked if I wanted to blend into a crowd, or stand out in a crowd...I'd prefer to avoid crowds! :D

Actually, if I was pick what gun I'd be, it would be a pre-war .38-44 HD, 4" barrel with a humpback hammer....

As far as I know I'm actually a Russian Makarov.

What type of handgun are you? (http://www.gotoquiz.com/what_type_of_handgun_are_you_1)
Your Result: Smith and Wesson Model 686
http://www.gotoquiz.com.nyud.net/upic/20100124/4VHO1dRv1PdXTmxL.jpg
The Smith and Wesson 686 is the stainless version of the 586. Chambered in .357 Magnum, it holds six rounds, or seven in the case of the 686 Plus. Unfortunately, Smith and Wesson has installed locks which compromise this gun's character and reliability. Therefore, you are a PRE-LOCK 686.
Result Breakdown:
86% Smith and Wesson Model 686
84% Springfield XD .45
82% TC Encore
82% Colt Model 1911A1
65% Desert Eagle .50 Action Express
59% Glock 17
43% Heckler and Koch USP .40
22% Luger P'08 and Variants
14% FN M1900
14% Kel Tec P3AT

Pre-lock 686. Not bad, even though I don't own a 686. Am a revolver guy and do own a couple GPs.

Glock 17. I've often thought about making a similar test but I couldn't really think of what factors would determine what, and how to weigh them. Ho Hum.

heron
January 25, 2010, 08:50 PM
It thinks I'm a XD .45 . . .

i don't agree . . .

the only centerfire handgun I own is a 6" GP100 . . .

It said I'm a 1911-I've never even shot a 1911. That may change soon though.

According to that, I am a 686, followed closely by a 1911.

I'd go along with the 1911, as I've owned at least twenty of them over the last twenty years and currently own "several" :)

Funny, because I once owned a 586 (the 686's Blued Brother). I sold it. So much for the credibility of this poll...

BTW I also disliked the Bush/Obama question. I don't like either. I picked Bush but it was tough.

apparently I am an XD 45

interestingly enough I own an XD45

that said, it is not my favorite gun

Black Knight

XD 45 as well. The next three in order Glock 17, Colt 1911, S&W 686. The last two I currently own. The first two I have little interest in. Not that they are bad guns its just that they just don't appeal to me much.

Pre-lock 686. Close enough for jazz, it's the successor to my favorite mod 19/66.
