Your favorite handgun to shoot???
 
We're all here because we like to shoot... So, here is the question, don't make it too complicated!!!! You have a Saturday afternoon all to yorself you can take ONE gun to the range or out in the brush, which handgun do you take....In other words, what is your favorite handgun to shoot and why???

I own a Ruger MKII 22/45 auto
Ruger single six 22/22 Mag
S&W Mod 28 357 Mag
Ruger Redhawk 44 Mag

My favorite is the Ruger Redhawk 44 Mag! I like the challenge of shooting it accurately with full loads and I love what it does to a water jug out to say... 100 yards.


Now it's your turn, whats your favorite and why???

Big joe,

Excellent question because it requires reflective thinking. Here on the farm in very rural PA, I most often carry a M1911 .45 Colt or a S&W 4-inch .357 M686. I have many other handguns, but these are my working guns that let me drive a tractor, trim brush or fix fence and take any shots that need taking.

I own a
Ruger GP100 .357
Ruger SBH .44mag
Ruger P90 .45 ACP
and a Browning Buckmark .22


My favorite to shoot is the .357 but I need the practice with the .44 (I have a tendancy to flinch) so it would be a toss-up between those two.

I own quite a few handguns, but i have to say right now, my favorite is my CZ-52.

My favorite is my 1911.
A hunting buddy left it to me in his will.

I have semi autos, DA revolvers and SA revolvers. Favorite to shoot any of the SA revolvers.

My favorite one to shoot right now is my Para Ordinance Tac 4 Hi-Cap DAO 45auto. I have shot this pistol more times than I can remember and it is as much fun every time as it was the first time. Thousand + round later and still havin fun. Just added a Para Ordinance LTC Steel 1911 to the family and looking forward to shooting it .

Good post Big Joe!
 
Im more accurate with my Glock 19, but my 1911 Milspec G.I. is by far my favorite handgun to shoot.

"Working guns" Eh...? So how many shots does it take to trim the brush?

tough query
 
As a dealer, I have access to just about anything I want to shoot.

But, the ones I shoot the most must be the answer to the question.... so its my Ruger Bisley 357 7 1/2" revolvers used for Cowboy Action Shooting. I practice, practice and practice with these guns and enjoy every round.

My wimpy handload is 125 gr LTC over 4.0 gr. of WW-452-AA in 357 brass. Very easy on the hands and super accurate in the above revolvers and my Winchester Legacy rifle.

My Colt Anaconda 44mag w/8 inch barrel. Super accurate!
