What is your favorite handgun in your collection?


March 6, 2009, 03:26 AM
Not the rarest, not the oldest, not the most powerful, not even the most expensive.

Just your favorite.

Here's mine. Browning Buckmark Challenge.

Probably my Glock 27.

March 6, 2009, 04:47 AM
Currently it's my H&K 45c!


March 6, 2009, 05:34 AM
http://www.orchardphoto.com/i19zsi99.jpgI guess I would have to say my Encore since that's the one I use the most by far. The target, by the way, shows an approximately 1.5 inch 3 shot group I shot with it in it's 460 S&W Magnum version at 200 yards.

March 6, 2009, 06:49 AM
Tough call as they all serve different purposes and appeal to me for different reasons.

Favorite for practical carry - Glock 19 as it is compact and light enough that I actually carry it.

Favorite for (tacti)"cool" factor - CZ-75 SP-01

Favorite for sentimental value - Smith and Wesson Model 15 .38 special (found at my grandfather's house after he died - I hadn't seen it in years)

Favorite shooter - CZ-75 SP-01 w/ .22lr Kadet Kit (often with SWR Spectre supressor)

March 6, 2009, 07:00 AM
My HK P2000sk makes me smile every time I use it.

March 6, 2009, 07:05 AM
My Kimber Custom II. My first of many 1911's. It just feels right when I pick it up and shoot.

March 6, 2009, 07:21 AM
That's like asking which of my kids I like the most. Each has it's own 'personality' and I like each of them for their individual qualities. If you're asking which one I shoot the most, it would be the CZ.

March 6, 2009, 07:53 AM
My 5906 is my favorite, but wouldn't mind adding it's baby brother 6906.

March 6, 2009, 08:12 AM
That's a tough call, but I have been shooting a nice Bulgarian Mak alot lately. REALY LIKE IT! I would have to say that it is my favorite right now. That being said , I have a Beretta 87 in 22 cal & a new CZ Kadet that are feeling pretty good. I need to shoot them more. CZ 85 c & 75 Compact , S&W 6906 & BHP "T" series & a couple more. Tough call. I do like them all!

Just One Shot
March 6, 2009, 08:46 AM
Right now it would be my XD .40 cal. simply because it's the newest addition.

March 6, 2009, 09:01 AM
Well, if I could only keep one, it'd be my S&W 1006 for sure. Accuracy is excellent, reliability is virtually 100%, and the round is very flexible.

March 6, 2009, 09:15 AM
That's a hard one because I like 'em all! But if I were to pick one that's near and dear to me it my beretta 92 - classic design, pleasant to shoot and it was the first handgun I bought myself - will never get rid of it.

March 6, 2009, 09:16 AM
Beretta 92SB Compact Type M


March 6, 2009, 09:21 AM
I would have to say the CZ 75B. I like the others, but the CZ would be my favorite.

Now, if I had the money to get an original military Colt 1911, I might have answered differently.

March 6, 2009, 09:39 AM
Les Baer 9mm PII


March 6, 2009, 10:23 AM
Witness Elite Match 10mm. Like MachIVShooter with his 1006, I find this gun extremely reliable and accurate. Plus, 10mm is very flexible.

March 6, 2009, 04:08 PM
My favorite is my full house custom M1911. Every part and bit of 'smithing was made to order. Carry and practice/SD pistol.

My favorite collection (rarely shoot) firearm is my HK P7/M8 that has been hardchromed by Tripp Research.

March 6, 2009, 04:29 PM
my Colt Frontier Scout is my fun gun:)

favorite as in taken shooting the most--this one(s)

March 6, 2009, 05:20 PM

Don't know why, it's beat up, scratched, the front white dot is shot out (painted in by me). Pretty plain, and only a 9mm. But I shoot it well, can carry it anywhere. And have 25 rounds on tap including the hi-cap back up mag.:cool:

March 6, 2009, 05:23 PM
My Glock 20 hands down.

If I knew I was going into combat, that is the one sidearm I would have on my belt.

March 6, 2009, 05:34 PM
I would definitely have to say my taurus 608. it has been highly modified to accept custom made moon clips and work on the action to make it tighter and better than any smith (even customized) that I have ever handled.. it is an amazing shooter... and an 8 shot 357 to boot... shoots 38's like they are .22's

2nd 41
March 6, 2009, 06:36 PM
Sorry. It's a tie.

Stainless Gold Cup Trophy
S&W 41 in 7"

March 6, 2009, 06:39 PM
Dan Wesson Bobtail 10mm

March 6, 2009, 06:50 PM
Kimber Custom SiS

March 6, 2009, 06:52 PM
Dan Wesson Bobtail 10mm

Ditto that, but mine is a .45. Quickly became my favorite.


March 6, 2009, 07:17 PM
I know you said most favorite, but I have 2. My favorites almost never start out that way, they evolve over time. A favorite for me has to earn it; these 2 have; my SP-01 converted to .40 S&W, and my CZ-97.

March 7, 2009, 01:05 AM
Walther P99...definitely

March 7, 2009, 01:31 AM
Dan Wesson Classic Bobtail in .45 is just amazing!!!

March 7, 2009, 01:57 AM

Even though I've been a long assimilated card carrying member of the Glock Collective for years, this little toy is my favorite!! :evil:

March 7, 2009, 02:37 AM
My Glock G33 357sig.

March 7, 2009, 11:14 AM
Nice-looking PPK/S, Denfoote. Are those the coco bolo grips from CDNN? Very sweet, indeed, especially for the price.

I'd have to say that my favorite gun is the NIB Walther P88C with a stunning set of Nill grips attached. It has lots of competition and lots of company, to be sure, but this one is as pretty as a beautiful woman in a long back dress.

March 7, 2009, 11:24 AM
I would have to say it's my HK P7 M8 although I never use it. I bought it, fired it several times that day. Cleaned it thoroughly and placed it back in its case.

I do however carry my Glock model 30 in 45 caliber as CCW. So this one get's the most use.

March 7, 2009, 11:54 AM
Ruger Old Army Stainless. 1976 edition. I'm sentimental that way.

March 7, 2009, 12:47 PM
Gotta say the Beretta 96FS INOX. Worst part is, I don't even know why it the favorite. Maybe the open slide or something.

March 7, 2009, 01:09 PM
HK45 is my favorite and the Buck Mark gets used the most, but I'd keep the P30 if I could only have one.

March 7, 2009, 01:14 PM
That would be my Ruger MK II 6 7/8" Government target.

March 7, 2009, 01:47 PM
Oh, I don't know. Tough call. Browning Hi Power if I had to pick right now.

March 7, 2009, 01:55 PM
Sig p220

March 7, 2009, 04:28 PM
PM9 because it's amazingly accurate for its size, reliable, easy to shoot and can be easily carried concealed, even in the Arizona summers.

March 10, 2009, 05:29 AM
My Kimber Tactical Custom II full size 1911.

My UNFIRED* 3.5" Smith & Wesson model 27-2, .357 magnum box-stock
with Goncalo Alves target grips, target trigger, and target hammer with
all documents and its original wooden presentation case.

*FootNote- this weapon has not even got a cylinder drag line~! ;)

Me thinks this topic should be moved to Handguns: General Discussion,
and away from auto-loaders; cuz no specification was made by the
thread starter.

Absolutely beautiful Ed Brown Kashton! :)

Great quality photos too.

March 10, 2009, 08:49 AM
My PT92. :D

I think this is my favorite -- 1965 Colt National Match.
One of my Dad's safequeens, probably has less than 700 rds thru it.

March 10, 2009, 09:05 AM
Thanks Coltman!

This is me shooting it at the range - Click for link (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QnoVCnj6eT4)

March 10, 2009, 09:36 AM

nothing like a little run n' gun. :D

March 10, 2009, 09:54 AM
I woulda said my MkIII BHP, but last week I picked up a Kimber Stainless 5" 9mm that is simply Da Bomb.

March 10, 2009, 12:20 PM
My favorite would be this Colt 1911 built by Jimmy Clark Sr. in the late 1980s -- used by me to shoot my way into "A Class" and won a bunch of Bowling Pin Shoots. It was the first high-dollar custom handgun I ever bought and it will NEVER be for sale.

Most certainly my Walther P99 AS.
