Why people start these grudge match threads is beyond me. Maybe the best pistol I own is a Taurus for example. It's never failed to do anything it's supposed to do through many thousands of rounds. It's super accurate and it holds way more rounds than would seem possible for it's size. And it has a lifetime warranty. What more could anyone possibly want in a pistol? Remember I have a Sig P220, a XDm, and a S&W 629 not to mention a Taurus LCP. I like the Taurus better than any of them. I would never buy a 10/22. There are just too many people hurling heaps of hype on it. It's not the "best firearm ever made" as some would have us think. That should stoke the flames real well around here. Oh goody. What fun. UPDATE: OK you'll notice I was brain dead in my post and called an LCP a Taurus. It's a Ruger and a fine one at that. Ruger actually makes fine weapons. I just don't think a 10/22 is the best weapon ever made and too many people do. Anyway - ooops! That's a Ruger LCP I have.
