    Start a thread about any make or model of gun and you will get some negative postings about it. Some guns seem to invite more of it then others.

    Taurus threads seem to attract attackers like waste matter attracts flies. Remington has been on a roll lately. Even tried and true companies like Smith and Wesson or Ruger are not immune from this.

    This got me thinking.

    Is there a gun maker or gun model that would not generate any bashing here? In other words, a perfect, or at least near perfect gun?

    I'll be the first to try.

    Beretta Shotguns. Who has anything negative to say about these?

    Not me. The wife and i both have 391s and they have been perfect for thousands of rounds. I especially like being able to change the cast to left hand with the spacers.

    I'll bet most people will say 1911 for the model. Every gun model has problems once in awhile, quality control isn't always the best, I can't think of one.

    There is no perfect gun.

    All guns suck.

    Take a gun of any make or model, run it hard, fast, and under adverse circumstances and you're bound to find a flaw.

    Way back in the early 60's I had the opportunity to shoot a custom Beretta Golden Snipe with an air shock in the stock. The owner had also gold plated all the moving action parts. That was about as perfect a gun as I have ever had the opportunity to handle.

    Never having enough desire to spend that kind of money on a shotgun, I don't own one, but shooting that Beretta was a true pleasure. Shot it well too may I say. Only shotgun I have ever shot a perfect round of Trap with.

    I own a 1926 Colt Officers Model 38 that I have no complaints with either.

    Beretta shotguns cost too much for what they are. You'd be better off buying a Perazzi. :rolleyes:

    There will always be a way to criticize a gun for those inclined to do it. The trick is to separate signal from noise.

    Koriphilla Odin's Eye. It's so expensive nobody can afford it, nobody has probably ever even seen one, so nobody can bad mouth it.
    Probably won't see any negative comments about Korth either.

    I bet you find the perfect gun... right after you find out what women REALLY want. In much the same way the search for the perfect spouse keeps divorce lawyers employed, so too, the search for the perfect gun keeps gun shops open.

    I own both, and they are garbage. See, there you go.

    I have never held either, but that doesn't keep me from having an internet opinion about them. All I have to do is be able to type (and some posters can't even do that correctly), and I can bad mouth anything.

    As stated before, you have to pick and choose what you read and hear. Everyone will not agree all the time on anything, ever.

    Is not Glock the most reliable? If not there is a lot of propaganda out there claiming so.

    The Browning Hi Power. Other than some CZ shooters jumping in to claim their pistol is just as good, there's really nothing to bash. Some people don't like the mag safety, but that takes about ten minutes to remove. Other than that, what's not to love?

    For a perfect autopistol, the 1911 is a good classic example. For polymer framed hi caps, I am going to go with the HK USP for best (go ahead and hate.)

    For a perfect semi auto rifle, I like the M1A, except for mounting optics.

    For a perfect semi auto shotgun, the benelli argos action is hard to beat. For pumps, it's hard to beat the 870.

    For centerfire revolver...both the Python and model 27 are great. I find my model 29 to be without peer in the .44 mag arena.

    For .22 pistol auto, I call the Ruger Mark II, for revolver....The High Standard Sentinel.

    I need to think about non-semi auto rifle for a bit.

    First rule; anything man-made will eventually fail in some form or fashion.

    I believe that quality control in this country was better in times gone by, whether in automobiles, appliances, clothing, firearms, etc. etc.

    I believe that some designs are better than others, and provide longer life and have less risk of failure than others...the 1911, the pump shotgun, the S&W revolver come to mind. Also, (and this is kind of interesting in its own right) the Glock...

    There isn't a perfect firearm, in my opinion, but there are some awfully good ones that if given proper care and maintenance will come pretty close for a long, long time

    Just my 2cents, YMMV

    I own a Colt Huntsman. As a teen and pre-teen I carried it many summers on many fishing trips, and it slayed turtles and snakes with distinction.

    I was carrying it the day I caught my largest catfish. I was carrying it the day I cut through the woods to a fishing hole and literally stepped on a squirrel's tail(it scaried the bejeezus out of both of us).
    Together with my Huntsman, all the best trails and creeks and farm ponds spread out like a great big promise of legendary fish and adventures.

    One could argue, but I'll never believe it's not the perfect gun.



    I guess in the post-Columbine days of America, people would get alarmed about a kid roaming around openly carrying a pistol. Sad, that is.

    Korths are too pretty to shoot.

    Hence they are imperfect.

    :p

    Perfect gun is the one you can put bullets where you aim all the time.
