The Rohrbaugh R9s is one of those cult guns that most people have enough sense to say 1500 to 2000 dollars for a pint sized gun that although may be built well is not even close to being worth that kind of money, there are some who will say I touched it and my tumor went away. Cult guns are guns that people are follow and are devoted to and could blow up in their hands and they would defend the company and gun design as being brought down from the mountain by Moses. Glock owners fall into this category. Don't get me wrong I like Glocks own 2 of them. Great guns but are they far and away superior to many other guns? Nope, not even close. Just like people who will pay 4k and up for a Colt Python will say after shooting it their cholesterol went down by 10 points. Again don't get me wrong I love the old Pythons but they are not worth 4k. Not even close. But gun people are known to be emotional over their views.

I AM "NOT" EMOTIONAL !
Ok well may be a little.
It's not the price that makes a gun worth any thing.

Most of my guns harvest wild critters free from hormones, medicines and other nasties- so yes- my guns may prevent cancer.

You left out the 1911. The death ray for some. Able to,stop, elephants, bring down errant missiles and stop professional NFL offensive linemen merely by waving it at them....by the way, I sold a 4" blue python in 1981 for $250.00. Who knew?

However, I still own the poor mans python, the colt trooper MK V. 4 inch blued. Beautiful gun. Have had it since 1982.... Paid $267.00 plus tax for it new and has 80 rounds through it. Never sell this one though. Won't make that mistake twice.

That's because it was the only 9mm of its size that was remotely durable enough to actually shot enough to get comfortable with in its day. That time has come and gone for the most part.

Glocks are by and large reliable and durable tools that are easily maintained. OF course they are going to be popular. They are the Honda Accord of the gun world. They work, work well, and keep on ticking, by and large. I don't think anyone will say much different who is a fan of them. I have not encountered anyone who viewed them as more than a reliable $4-600 option.

The Python...smooth revolver. Very nice.

I think cult guns would be things like the 1911...proven inferior in nearly every way...yet people still cling to them as more than artwork or relics. The Glock, Python, etc. are all legitimately useful tools within their scope, arguably at the top of "their" game. The 1911 was the same, 70 years ago.

The 1911 ain't broke, so why fix it?

But I like the Ruger SR9 series, Sigs, CZs, S&W M&Ps, as well as Kahrs, not to mention my older wheelguns (Rugers, S&Ws, Colts)

Don't care much for Glocks - they don't fit my hand well and are butt ugly.

It depends on how you define "broke". I define it as "less reliable and more likely to have more downtime". In this definition, the 1911 is a posterchild.

I myself went from Glocks to M&P's.

There also isn't a 1911 made that will shoot .357 Magnum ammunition, save for the Coonan.
