    I can not personally vouch for this story, but I came across it in a newsletter, "Page Nine", by Alan Korwin.

    Southwick Associates has completed an extensive survey of the top brands in the shooting sports. It is part of a 238-page report that received so much coverage you have never even heard of it. Are you using the top brands? Here they are:

    Top rifle brand: Remington (17.5% of all purchases)
    Top shotgun brand: Remington & Mossberg (virtual tie with 21.5% of all purchases)
    Top muzzleloader brand: Thompson Center (31.9% of all purchases)
    Top handgun brand: Sturm Ruger (16.7% of all purchases)
    Top scope for firearms: Bushnell (17.1% of all purchases)
    Top rifle ammunition brand: Remington (25.3% of all purchases)
    Top shotgun ammunition brand: Winchester (31.9% of all purchases)
    Top handgun ammunition brand: Winchester (22.0% of all purchases)
    Top blackpowder brand: Pyrodex (38.7% of all purchases)
    Top balls, bullets, or shot brand: Hornady (28.4% of all purchases)
    Top reloading bullet brand: Hornady (31.7% of all purchases)
    Top reloading primer brand: CCI (38.2% of all purchases)
    Top reloading powder brand: Hodgdon (37.8% of all purchases)
    Top binocular brand: Bushnell (33.6% of all purchases)
    Top holster brand: Uncle Mikes (19.0% of all purchases)
    Top knife brand: Gerber (15.0% of all purchases)

    Top Brands

    These have to be the largest quantity sellers because they are not the top specimens, generally, in class.

    Maybe top SELLING brand, not the best brand. :scrutiny:

    Sauer Grapes has it correct. Top selling doesn't necessarily mean "best", and "best" for one thing might be worst for another use. Depending on what someone else likes or desires in anything is a pretty poor way to decide what another person likes. It's like having someone who barely knows you to order something for you to eat, it might be great or it might be something you couldn't gag down. Not quite with guns maybe, but maybe so.

    I'm not surprised that Uncle Mike's is the top holster brand; everybody sells those one-size-fits-nothing-very-well pouches.

    ...and folks are shocked when they aren't allowed to use them in a match because they cannot reholster singled handed.
