Our community often have disagreements on what is the best gun or bullet or whatever. I am curious if any of the preferences correlate with other, every day preferences. So, I have a poll. Obviously, if you vote in the poll, your vote will not be anonymous. So, if you are a cat lover who likes .45 ACP, you will be exposed. Obviously too, most of the questions would call for the response. "I like them both." So just give what is 51% preference.

So, which do you like better? Just give number and letter.

1. a. .357 ___ or .b. 45 ACP __?

2, a. Ford __or b. Chevy __?

3. a. 9mm __or .b. 40 cal __?

4. a. Motorcycles __ or b. horses __?

5. a. ,30-06 __ or .b. 270 __?

6. a. Coke __ or b. Pepsi __?

7. a. 45/70 __or .b. 338 Mag __?

8. a. Desert/plains __or forest __?

9. a. .44 Mag __ or .b. 45 Colt __?

10. a. Hamburgers __ or b. fried chicken __?

11. a. Lead __ or b. jacketed __?

12. a. Hot day __ or b. cold __?

13. a. Revolver __ or b. semi __?

14.` a. Country __ or b. Pop __?

15. a. Fast, light bullet __or b. slow, heavy bullet __?

16. a. Dogs __ or b. cats __?

17. a. Bird guns _ or b. deer rifles _?

18. a. Pizza _ or b. Chicken and Dumplings_?

19. a. Bolt action _ or b. lever action _?

My answers are:

Well, the first thing the poll shows is that the group doesn't like this poll. The response was so limited that not much can be analyzed. There were some surprises, though. And some unsurprising results, like Country music being preferred over Pop 10 to one and dogs preferred over cats 11 to two

The most surprising to me was the strong preference for .44 mag over .45 Colt by 11 to one and revolver over semi 10 to two. I never would have expected that. Deer rifles over bird guns was also heavier than I would have expected. The .30-06 strong preference over .270 at least surprised me.

Some could use explanation. Pizza over chicken and dumplings at 2 to one is only because those who chose pizza have not tasted my chicken and dumplings, for instance. The preference for forest over desert or plains may be the result of more respondents residing in the temperate rain forest of the eastern United States, although that is not cross-referenced. The .30-06 over the .270 is only logical to me. But the chatter from .270 advocates made me think they were more numerous than they may be. Those who like the .270 REALLY like them

There also appears to be no correlation between 45/70 preferences and lever action preferences as opposed to .338 and bolt action.

But what I really wanted to find out was whether some of the non-gun preferences correlated to the gun preferences. I can say, generally, the Ford preference correlates moderately with Coke preferences.

Interesting. I for one had to answer both for a good number of those questions, some off the top of my head would be 44 mag vs 45 Colt and 30-06 vs 270, among others.
