There is no 'best' brand because everybody's preferances are different. When looking for a gun I research different guns to see the pros and cons of all that I am considering, next I make a list of the 'good' guns in order of best to worst (for me) that are within my budget, then find out which ones are readily available, and finally try each of them to see which one is best for me. I usually look at how comfortable it is to hold first, then (if I can) I check how it feels to shoot, next I check the action to see how that feels, and the absolute last thing I look at is the appearance of the gun, this is least important but having a good looking gun helps.
