Do you have any gun that shoots itself?

    I like most of you have more than one handgun. With that being said I was wondering if anyone else just has a handgun that just practically shoots itself.In my case it is a XD9SC. Just an easy gun to shoot,good trigger,mild recoil and when I qualified I shot a 147 out of 150. I also have a PT145Pro which really takes a lot to shoot well.It just requires a lot of concentration to hold it on the target and squeeze that round off.I was just wondering if any others out there share a similar experience.

    My West German P220 seems that way. But it's definitely my shooting, and I am that awesome.

    My XD45acp service is that way to me. It's just so easy to shoot.

    If your gun shoots itself, you need to get that revolver re-timed!

    That being said, no, I really don't. Though I haven't shot my 10/22 since I swapped out the trigger group. It definitely made it smoother, but I just haven't gotten it to the range because it's in the middle of a rebuild (still going to buy a new barrel for it) and isn't "done" yet.

    Too bad each full cylinder runs $8 with factory ammo.

    My S&W 1911 is awesome. Sometimes I feel like I can just point it in the general direction of the target and hit the bullseye.

    Ok I'll bite......my Glock 21 is that way.
    The sights line themselves up, the gun just punches my hand, and the bullseye gets another hole in it. We had a range day at the office with prizes to the top shot. I felt bad about taking the prize because it was soooooo easy.
    Did it really take until the 10th post to get a Glock answer? :D

    I thought this was going to be a political thread. With all the ban laws being proposed there a TON of guns that just start blasting away with no human interaction at all. Or so you would think.

    It would have to be my Glock 26. Been a revolver guy all my life, but the first time I fired a rented G26 I couldn't believe how accurate I was with it.

    Don't have one myself, but I DID see a 357 that shot a 22 right in the butt! :what:

    Guy was pawin' up someone elses guns and disregarding most of the four laws, he proceeded to pull the trigger and plow a bullet through the grip of the guy's other revolver that was sitting on the table!

    No one was hurt, but they were asked to leave. :banghead:

    Maybe that's not what you meant... :rolleyes:

    I've always felt my M&P 9C practically shot itself until I shot my wife's fullsized M&P. Shooting that thing is like cheating.

    I don't have one, but they must exist. I have seen signs and bumper stickers that say, "Guns Kill". I keep mine locked up so they can't. The one I keep on the nightstand is pretty well trained to stay put.

    XDM in 9mm and .40 cal. is definitely sweet! But a week or so ago I came into an SCCY CPX1 9mm that is honestly amazing in this manner. I have never bumped into one before until now, and it has some of the finest workmanship I've seem, and for such a small price tag too. It's not an XDM, but it seems to have that type of workmanship in terms of trigger and parts fit, very clean work.

    natural fit guns for me:

    1911 derived designs, particularly officer-size frames, enhanced even more with slim grips (strange, as I have big hands)
    XD guns, again, the compacts work well for some reason (not the XD-m, although the XD-s seems OK so far)
    Ruger mk__ with the traditional grip angle, not the 22/45
    Tokarev
    PMR30
    Anything Walther from the P.38 on seems to fit, I suspect that someone at the Ulm factory in the R&D department has hands just like mine

    The deciding factor seems to be an upright narrow grip, with the exception of the Ruger target pistols.

    My one gun that best fits your question would be my Colt Combat Commander. Customized by Colts Custom Gun Shop, it's one accurate and reliable shooter that just feels right when it's in my hands; like a natural extension of my arms when I bring it up on target.

    The other gun that is closest to that feeling would be my Browning Hi-Power.

    My HighStandard Sport King is simply so natural in my hand. . .

    I recently got rid of an old Colt Official Police 4 inch barrel that did all the work. Very nice shooter, but I traded it in for a new rifle.

    When will all this senseless gun-on-gun violence end?!?!


    I have a Buckmark that makes me think I'm a better shooter than I really am.

    There was some experimentation with curved barrel submachine guns in the early part of the 20th century, but none were curved enough for the gun to shoot itself. However, if you take a "sniper quality" Mosin Nagant rifle and you stand precisly on the equater and raise the rear sight all the way up, it should be possible to fire a bullet that goes into orbit and comes back down, striking the very gun that fired the round.

    My Springfield 1911 is my go-to. It just fits and points so nicely.

    Haven't tried throwing a can up in the air and hitting it from the draw though. Maybe that would be a good test. We'll see what Sunday afternoon brings.....
