Man, that's a tough one. I guess it's a toss up between the DW Pointman and the S&W M19.

Personally, I find that target shooting Lorcins is very satisfying as they rather dramatically explode when hit with a round of .40 S&W.

Anything aimed at a reactionary target--e.g. steel poppers, spinners, silhouettes, clay targets etc.. :) I love to hear and see immediate feedback. It would be hard for me to choose one gun, since there are many options for reactionary targets.

Usually whatever is the cheapest I can find that suites the purpose. I have used those fluorescent price stickers you buy in bulk stuck on a pc of copy paper.
Once I bought a deer archery target and cut it out and traced it onto sheets of cardboard, works really well in that it is life sized.
I do like the shoot n see targets though, easier to see at 100yds with the 223.

Just for clarity you did ask what is the favorite gun to shoot not he favorite target to shoot at????
Mine is my model 10, S&W 4 inch. Smooth as glass and accurate.
But target shooting is really all I use it for anymore although 25 years ago it was my first leo duty weapon.

Since I started IDPA and USPSA (almost a year) all I shoot is my production Glock 17.

Doesn't look as ready as the Grizzly, but I like it more.

I really don't have a favorite. I like to target shoot with all my guns.
I probably shoot S&W J Frames about as much as anything.
Recently I've been shooting the pistols from 50 yards at a 24 inch square steel plate. Saves having to change paper targets.:)

The last "gun" I shot, was a plastic water pistol in the hand of a "scarecrow" criminal.
It was the only "good" target presentation I had, for this set up.
Fun: New deal is trying to shoot through a Lifesaver candy with a .22 handgun.
It used to be jelly beans set out "umpteen bazillion yards" by the kids.
Now...I make a complete fool of myself missing Lifesavers. *fun though*
Shotguns and fun:
Clays of course, plus folks hitting a golf ball with a 7 iron and shooting these...
I still like shooting tin cans off a "fence" with a handgun or rifle...

M2 Browning Heavy Machine Gun, from the TC hatch of my old M113.
Or my current love, a Browning BLR in .243, that's nice, too.

My single-shot Remington 514 .22 that my oldest brother gave me when I was 10 or so. Of all my guns, that one gives me the most grins.

S&w 14-3 6"

Whichever gun I have with me is my favorite that day. :D
Ruger Mk77. There's something a lot of fun about long range shooting.
Marlin .444 Lever gun. Pretty much makes everyone at the indoor range stop and look.
I'm working on buying a BOHICA upper for one of my AR lowers. I strongly suspect that will become my favorite when completed.

Hey The_Sheriff, which one of your Dad's guns is your favorite to shoot?
If you're going to ask a question you might as well give your own answer first...
My favorite to shoot is my Jennings J22. I even hold it sideways. It sometimes doesn't jam!

The bigger the bang the better but in honesty most of my shooting is the 22. It keeps me sharp for all the boomers when I do shoot them and its affordable. If I had to choose just one gun it would be the S&W M41 22 pistol.

Gotta be my Ruger SBH .44 Mag 10.5 bbl stoked with powderpuff .44 spec handloads. Everybody gets a big ol' grin when they shoot it. :D

I love shooting 6" .357's and autoloaders in about any caliber exept .22
August 16, 2008, 05:19 PM
It changes. I get bored with one, and go to another, get bored with it and......
Then I get the first one out and go WOW, no wonder I liked shooting this one. :D
August 16, 2008, 06:05 PM
Ruger Vac .357mag
August 16, 2008, 06:11 PM
Ruger Mark III Target .22 It's just plain fun. :)

I think every shooter owes it to themselves to try out a really, really accurate .22 rifle with all the bells and whistles and a great trigger pull to boot.
