    Dear THR:
    If you could have five of the six pistols listed, which one would you vote out? Please share your reasons.

    For me, I have very hard time deciding. Each of the ones listed offer distinct advantages.

    Thank you

    I would not take number 3.

    I hate the number 3.

    If I had numbers 1 and 4, I would easily live without the remainder.

    If someone gave me a P30, a P99, a 92, and a 226 elite I would be tickled pink - so that I could trade them in for a VBOB.

    I voted against the P99 as I feel the Glock would be almost as easy to conceal and I wouldn't want to lose the Dan Wesson,Sig, H&K or Beretta.

    I've not been impressed by Beretta's longevity. Everything else on the list seems to hold up better.

    1st choice - VBOB - I want one so bad.
    2nd - HK - of all the non-1911s out there that's the one I'd like to have.

    No interest in the VBOB. No other reason than I dislike the 1911 bob'd feel in my hands.

    I do agree somewhat, bobbed 1911's take some getting used to especially if you are a long-time owner of a standard 1911; for me though, it's all about the quality of Dan Wesson. Give me a DW over a Kimber, Colt, or any other production 1911 any day.

    No "bob's" for me either. The top three things that look wrong on a 1911, in my opinion, bobtail, light rail (I guess I'm warming up to this a little), finger groove grips (go back to your Glock).

    While I'd like to own a SIG P226, I'm not a fan of the Elite series. Why do you need a beavertail on a SIP P-Series? Are they known for hammer bite? No, I suspect.

    I will pass on them all.

    The Walther would mean nothing to me.

    I want everything large. Everything.

    I don't really have a need for a Glock 19.
    Nothing wrong with them, of course, they just don't send me anywhere and I have other guns that cover the same niche that I really enjoy shooting.
    ... that and if I changed my mind I could just go get one... from like anywhere... :D

    The Elite would be my first to keep followed closely by the VBob.

    No H&K

    Think about Factory Service

    I don't care for Berettas. I respect them. I like how they look. I like the grip. Somehow, despite all of that, I have no desire to own one.

    The rest of that list is full of winners.

    92fs, the DA trigger is terrible.

    So far Elite seems to be the most popular pistol. I can see why.

    I voted for the Beretta Model 92 as I really don't care for DA/SA semi-autos with slide mounted safeties. The other thing is that Model 92 doesn't fit my hand very well and the guns overall ergos don't work for me.

    a $5.99 Beretta "D" spring, plus about 3 minutes of your time, without any special tools, makes the Beretta 92 double action trigger at least 100% better. I don't know of any other modification this simple that can make such a dramatic difference in trigger feel.

    There always seems to be a lot of hate on THR for the Beretta 92. I find it funny when so many people say the Beretta is too big for their hands, and too large for the round it fires, then sing the praises for the Glock 17.

    The only common complaint I agree with is the slide-mounted decocker/safety. But with regular practice, handling the Beretta becomes second nature. It just takes a lot of getting used to for people who have shot 1911s or striker-fired guns exclusively.
