just to add fire.

Apparently his gun isn't the only thing country about him. So far all I see from his education is the ability to brown nose and call people stupid if you have a different view than him. After watching this thread it apparently brings out several minions. I think they have a political party carved out under those views.............
There is a difference between smack talking and being a phallus. Heavy handed replies with no finesse should be sent directly to ARF.com. Thank you for your cooperation.

JMB is untouchable IMO, the amount of designs, patents, longevity, etc... nobody comes close. Nobody.

I love my Glocks. Not a big fan of the gen 4 though.

I am sorry you do not know the difference between "ignorant" and "stupid", again the educational system has failed.
Oh, having read some of your responses, I think we know the failures of the educational system pretty well now.

Along with others, I am ready to let this topic die. Rational discourse died some time back.

Why do the people who want to kill this thread keep posting?

Legend has it that Piers Morgan hates the 1911....

Why did we bring this back again?

It was dead for a month.

Unfortunately there will likely never be another JMB. That said, GG has made an important contribution that will remain an icon for the ages. But comparing the two is an apples to oranges exercise IMHO.

Perhaps an interesting comparison would be GG vs. Mikhail Kalashnikov.

It was the _idea_ that massive firepower could be reduced to the personal level that made Browning's development and acceptance possible. That, and a MASSIVE arms race during that era of the early 20th century.

Both (IMHO) Stoner and Kalishnikov deserve honorable mention here, although at least according to Chivers, the AK is more a tribute to the Soviet military bureaucracy than to independent briliance.

But as for the topic of Browning or Glock, I am not sure what the argument is about. There were cars before the Model T, but Ford made the Model T available to the masses. Ford is remembered for the process, not for the vehicle itself.

It is certainly evidence of brilliance that the Browning pattern is still used by so many weapons - who would NOT want to have a BAR to play with??? But while I am neutral on Glocks - I have them and I enjoy them, but not passionate about them - there is much to be said for the utter simplicity of the design and manufacturing technique, and the truly innovative marketing strategies Glock the company has used.
Actually, if I recall correctly, Maxim invented recoil operation and Browning invented gas operation.
