Never seen one much less fired one, but you all are peeking my interest.
Best? In what way? All of my guns make me smile....that is why I own them. The best gun in terms of accuracy, the one that is mesmerizing to shoot is this one:
An old Pardini Free Pistol. Best triggers ....one half ounce. You don't actually pull the trigger; you think about pulling the trigger.
Mine? A S&W 19-2 with target trigger and hammer.
I can't actually pick a favorite, so I posted Glock because of the revolvers.
That 21 is among my favorites, though.
My Mauser HSc is pretty kewl too.
I do have high hopes for the fun factor of the S&W 625-9 .45 Colt Mountain Gun I put on Layaway yesterday though...
Sent from my phone, so any typos are its fault.
It is hard to pick an overall favorite. I picked the 19-2 I had way back when because overall it was the best I've ever fired, and it allowed me to shoot the best I ever have. I could just as easily have picked a HiPower I once had except for the occasional failure to feed. I also could have picked an old Python I fired, but there were two things wrong with it. It felt just a tad front heavy, and it wasn't mine.
My point wasn't to knock Glocks. It was more to point out their absence in spite of their apparent popularity. People love the reliability, people love their accuracy, people love their ergos, but according to this thread people don't love them as much as they once loved something else.
Seriously, I would trade every gun I have to get my 19-2 back as long as it was in the same condition it was in when I sold it. Heck, I still remember the serial number 35 years after I sold it. That's got to be an indication of how much I loved that gun and why it is on this list.
I mean which is more fun rolling a tin can with a target 22 or knocking over distant steel with a big bore revolver, Cowboy action or IDPA.
A friend that I worked with had the sweetest shooting M27/6" that I ever shot. It was his duty carry and I offered to trade him my M66 straight across while at the range and he just smiled. Both of our Smiths had been worked over, but his M27 was in a different league.
The Ruger .22 semiautos provide most of the joy at a lower price, but there's something about a Smith Model 41...
