Now what are you going to buy next? Haha!
Enjoyed mostly my Ruger GP100 in .357 mag, and any handload I had the nerve to try. The thing is one of the few I would use the word "awesome" with.
I like it so much that I have two 22/45's as understudies. Still, nothing really compares to that Para.
the best is the bearcat!
For the semi-auto it's a close call but I would have to give the nod to my Colt Combat Commander from Colts Custom Shop. This gun can keep up with a Gold Cup any day of the week while still being able to reliably feed any kind of .45 ammo I can load up in the mag. My runner-up gun is my Browning Hi-Power Mk.II which has the best out-of-the-box trigger on it than any other Hi-Power I have ever tried. Even with fixed sights it is incredibly accurate for a service grade pistol.
1939 Registered Magnum, 50 shots of hot 2400 reloads at 15 yrds offhand. This gun is the 1939 Camp Perry championship prize gun speced out by a Detroit PD officer who won it. I never tire of shooting it.
Lucky for me, i was smart enough to keep my "best" and unload the "others"!
So, i still have my OLD S&W M-29 44 Magnum that put a lot of meat in my freezer for me! I still have my amazing origional S&W 357 Magnum! and i still have my OLD S&W M-19 that i've carried for years and years!
A couple other "best" that i have are my OLD High Standard Victor that i won match after match with! And my OLD Colt Woodsman that i've carried trapping and my OLD S&W M-18 that also put a ton of meat in my freezer!
I just don't have a need to keep any second best!
Hands down, the best handgun I've ever shot was a friends S&W pre-war third model .44 Handejector target revolver.
The best handgun that I have shot that I own is my Python.
Best to me is a mixture of how it feels in the hand unfired and fired. The other key part is reliability. I think pistol accuracy is overrated as most will shoot better than you are capable of.
My vote based on the criteria above were a Sig 220 cosely followed by a 226. For me, it just doesn't feel any better. Don't get me wrong, I can live quite contently with others as well.
I love it
Wow, that's impressive. Looking at your posts over the last couple weeks I realize we are fortunate to have access to your knowledge and skill.
Officer's model target .38

Who are you quoting/talking to? I kinda tried to find it but didn't really find it.
If you quote someone, it comes in handy to attribute that quote to the author.
