    My brand loyalty stems from first hand experience with that particular brand.
    I will admit what I hear about them plays a small part in my opinion, if it is creditable information.

    Brands 'n me...

    Brands have never been an issue for me. Kinda like the way I vote: I look for what a candidate stands for, and that is how I vote. Not a party. Anyway, the brands that I have seen put out more consistent pistols are Beretta, Ruger, Springfield Armory, and of course Glock. I don't own a Glock anymore, because I don't enjoy shooting one. Just preference, that's all. I mainly use an old Springfield 1911 that I lovingly customized, and mostly likely will trade in one of my seldom used pistols this weekend for an XD service model or .45 compact as a carry gun, 'cause I like the way it points, and the grip is fairly thin for what it is. I don't particularly like the trigger, but found out there's a kit available to greatly change it. Soo... I'm game!

    Find something that works and stick with it.

    I'm not "brand loyal". I have different brands. I seem to have more Rugers than anything else, though. I grew up in the 60s reading all the gun rags, too. I own one Smith and no Colts. :D

    Lessee, off hand, Ruger, Smith and Wesson, Taurus, Kel Tec, Rossi, Grendel, NAA, and a few others and guess what? They all work.
