    Ruger is the top-purchased handgun brand? Interesting.

    It would also be interesting to see these numbers broken down even further, with stats on the top bolt action rifle brand, semi auto rifle, pump shotgun, semi auto shotgun, etc.

  3. avatar Ralph says:

    There was actually a category called “Top Balls?”

  4. avatar Chris Dumm says:

    “Top” and “best” are hardly synonymous among some of these examples. “Best marketed” seems to be the focus of this list.
