"What Pistol Should I Buy?" - Best Response

Recently, a close friend of mine who is very well versed in firearms, shooting, self defense, history, literature, ok you get it a very intelligent individual, took part in a Bookface comment mire.  

The whole multi party conversation began when another friend, asked a very simple question on Bookface: "Looking for a good pistol, possibly for CCW.  Any ideas?"

Responses began pouring in.  Couch ninjas and pajama warriors began filling the comments with recommendations spanning from the Taurus Judge to the Ruger line of abominations.  That is when one of the key Denny Ducet personalities jumped in and dropped the hammer on it all.

I would say that his response is about as succinct and correct as it gets in addressing the original posted question.  There was no time to wade through the butt hurt and uninformed.  

So go ahead, cut and paste his comment to the endless tar pit of internet conversations regarding which pistol to get for CCW.  I am sure you have a window open right not that has the "What Pistol Should I Buy" thread title in some tactical forum, .org, .net, .com, gun website or social media cesspool.  Go ahead, drop his comment in there and watch what happens.  Don't forget the popcorn.

His response to the endless horrible recommendations:

"Dude, no allegiance to any brand, and not here to measure dicks, just interested in platforms that work, no matter what. A polymer frame, compact HK, Sig, Glock, M&P in 9mm is the way to go. CZ also makes nice stuff, and Walther just stepped it up with the PPQ, but they're customer service and aftermarket support sucks. 

.40 is a poorly conceived round that everyone is moving away from, .45 is a waste of money and capacity, totally unnecessary with modern bullet construction. 

1911 based anything looks cool, but they're finicky, complicated, out-of-date, and cost way too much for a well-built one...i.e. show piece vs carry piece.

Rugers are shit, Springfields are shit, Kimbers are shit, the FN 5.7 is stupid, Taurus is fucking garbage (especially the retarded Judge), Kel-Tec and Bersa are a joke, and the only decent thing Beretta makes is the 92, and that will never be a CCW piece, everything else Beretta makes sucks.

If somebody tries to argue with the above, it's probably because they're insecure and trying to defend the shitty gun they just bought."
