    Dear THR,
    I have been conducting polls with various handguns. I want to know which of the gun listed in the Poll is used by most of the members.

    Thanks.

    Interesting poll, but you left out Ruger, Browning, Smith, Colt and a few other major players. But it is your poll.

    Not concerned about them. This poll is to check certain hypothosis.

    I have shot a LOT of handguns over the past 30+ years, but have never shot any you have on your list.

    None.

    (Oh Crap) I have shot the HK USP Tactical, a friends gun. He paid too much money for a gun that I can out shoot with my Kahr... In my opinion.

    Gonna have to vote none. The CZ 75 is closest but you didn't have a B on there and since there is a difference between the two I can't accurately choose that one.

    yeah I am curious about the hypothesis as well. I have fired two on your list. A Glock 19 of my friend's and a FN FiveSeven that a guy at the range just let me put a mag through.

    I am guessing there is a specific reason as to the specificity of the guns listed. For instance I have shot Glock 27 but not 26, own a Beretta 92 but not the one listed, etc. And did not check those boxes.

    Shot 16 out of your 20

    Only missed the:
    HK USP Tactical
    CZ 75 Tactical Sports
    CZ Czechmate
    Desert Eagle

    I've actually fired the USP Tactical and the Desert Eagle, but it was only for one magazine and I didn't really get much of an impression of either...so I guess you could say the only ones I've missed are the specialized CZs

    I've shot maybe three, but that's it. And I've owned or fired hundreds of handguns. It's a weird list. More like what you'd see in a video game or movie than real life. Maybe I just don't care enough for the semis.

    They are a lot of guns you'll see in new shooter classes and IDPA competition...well, except for the Desert Eagle

    The only entry level guns on the list are the Glocks

    I'm surprised how many folks have shot the Walther P99

    I really like the poll. I'll bet it has some relation to how many folks will recommend a gun without experience with its competition

    I clicked the Walther but the one I own is actually the SW99 in .45acp... If tht doesn't count then subtract one for the Walther...

    Then there's a flaw. Just because someone has shot one of them, doesn't mean they use it. For instance, I have shot 2 on your list, a G17 and a Desert Eagle. However, neither belonged to me, so they're not something I use, persay. They belonged to 2 different friends. The Desert Eagle was extremely fun to shoot, but was a wrist breaker, as it was a .50AE. Didn't get to shoot it much though, because none of us handloaded back then and each trigger pull was about $2.00.

    I own 5 of the pistols you have in the poll and have shot 9 of them. The most recent was a HK USP TACTICAL that I put 50% down on Layaway before I shot it, then rented it and tried it out before fully committing. In the end I actually didn't like it as much as I was hoping I would. I just didn't like the trigger and thought the reset was way too long especially for a $1000 gun. Needless to say I took it off Layaway and bought my first 1911 a kimber custom crimson carry and LOVE it.

    As far as which gun on the poll I shoot the most its a tie between the glock 19 and the fn Five-seveN. The Five-seveN is slowly taking over the spot as my most frequently shot pistol though.

    It's ok. I shot a P99 once but forgot to check that box. So we even each other out. I hated the P99. Not a soft shooter at all. Seemed to amplify recoil.

    That is really a bizarre list of oddly specific sub-models of guns you put up in that poll.

    Not enough of them. :D

    Glock 19, CZ75 and Walther P99 (which I didn't see and left out of the poll) The Glock and CZ are my own, the Walther belonged to someone else. I was ambivalent about it. I have also fired the Sig P226 (rental, with DAK trigger), but not those specific models.

    None of them.

    I've fired a Sig 226, but not that one.
    I've fired a Cz75BD.
    I've fired a Glock 34.

    I've fired quite a few guns - I never turn down the opportunity to try a gun I've never fired before.
