    Dear THR:
    Which is the best handgun you ever fired? One that you absolutely enjoyed firing.

    It may be surprising, but I really like my luger p08. Too bad its temporarily out of commission at the moment.

    Freedom Arms 454 Casull Stainless in 10" barrel with T'SOB triple-ring mount and 4X Leupold EER Silver Scope. I worked up an extremely accurate load using flat-nose copper jacketed bullets.

    I could consistently shoot a 1.4" group off a bench at 100 yards.

    Another one of those that I never should have sold.

    This 6" S&W 10-5 .38 special. Feels good in the hand, great trigger, and is an accurate shooter.

    An original short-rail Cz 75.
    It just felt "right".

    It's still my holy grail gun, but hell if I'll ever be able to both find AND afford one at the same time.

    A 1960's era Colt Police Positive .38 revolver. After leaving law enforcement, I signed up for another weapons class aimed at civilians (was gonna use it for a security license, not being able to get a clear answer from the state then as to whether or not my LE training records, which were more than sufficient, would be accepted.) Just before the class, my own service-sized revolver was stolen, so I arrived at the class with only my Charter Arms Undercover .38 snub. The instructor wanted me to take the class with a service-type weapon, so he let me shoot it with his. Very nice and well-kept, with a smooth action and trigger. Shot quite well with it, too.

    I also shot a rented Sig 1911 recently, too. It had definitely had some work done to it to tune it up, and it was nice to shoot. However, I can't let it claim the title of "most enjoyable" gun I've shot simply because I'm left-handed, and the gun was not, requiring too many adjustments in technique.

    I got this one new in early 1979. I had helped my brother set up his partnership, and he and the partner let me select anything I wanted from the display cases. I chose the Python over everything else. It has over 3k rounds through it, and the timing is still spot on.

    I replaced the original stocks with a set of Herrett's Shooting Masters, modifying them to fit my hand. The Generation Three stocks are still in the original box.

    I had a Brownin HP that was spot on fantastic! I never would have sold it if I didn't have to.
    Now it is too expensive to replace.
    Who knew? This was over twenty five years ago.

    Ruger Super Redhawk. I might not be as good as a previous poster claims to be, but I do enjoy hitting a pie plate at 150 feet with all six rounds.

    I really enjoy shooting my EMP 9mm . Even more than the Hi-Power or 92fs. Just something about that little EMP, shoots like it's big, handles like it's small. Sweet gun all around.

    This is a tough one. I thought about the Ruger Mk II, then the Uberti 1860 Army C&B.

    But have to go with the S&W K-38. Love the caliber, it points beautifully, and has the nicest trigger of any gun I've even used.

    It would be a toss up between a S&W 38/44 Outdoorsman and a K-22 Outdoorsman.
    The quality and accuracy of these 1930's vintage revolvers is just plain astounding.

    A Colt 1911 made in 1951 that had been accurized by an expert. Outstanding, it was so well tuned and fitted by loving hands that it would feed and eject a full mag. of empties almost every time.
