I have a contender in 223. and its an awesome handgun....been wanting a revolver in 223 .....if they got it right and was in the right platform , I believe it would be popular bigtime.......but for now the 44 mag is King ....followed closely by the Casull in the right platform.....
Pretty large to carry a 45 Colt, but in a few more days open carry will be legal in South Carolina, so I expect I will see some "cowboys" out and around. 45 Colt is certainly easy to handle when reloading, and I love my guns that shoot it.
I have every one you have listed and would be forced to vote for 327 Federal as the only one in a small enough gun to include in my carry rotation. Love my magnums, but you know...
ps: The only one I might carry also is my 38 Special snubby, but I try to stay with a gun that holds 6. The 38 otherwise is always in my go bag, grabbed going out the door. It is the one I can reach when in the car.
.45 ACP for carry and self-defense. For the last 25 years, that's been a Kimber Custom Classic.
.45 Colt for hunting or serious woods business. My favorite is a Colt New Service with added adjustable sights and Herrett Shooting Master grips.
10mm: very versatile. The do-all. Nothing is "one and done" but this is the closest.
9mm: by speed & volume
Opps! wrong forum.
45C: by lust, romance & entertainment. Yes, you can lay on my other pillow.
357M: versatile, wheel guns also need to eat
44M: my carbine & woods wheel gun combo cal. Yes, I feel lucky.
45ACP: I moved on........but oh, that 1911!
380ACP: summer lovin
If I hunted with a handgun, my answer would probably be different, but since I don't, .45 Auto is my choice.

Here is mine. Yes, the stocks are incorrect, those are a set of Triple Lock stocks I had laying around.
32 H&R magnum is a distant 2nd, but the current production choices of make/models are lacking.
If you already have a 41 Magnum, you don't need a 44 Magnum. Of course lack of real "need" has never stopped me from buying a gun.
I sure agree with that! As I stated earlier in this thread, it's the same situation with my favorite, the 41 Magnum - "current production choices of make/models are lacking." I guess they always have been though.
1) .45 Colt
2) .38 Special
3) .44 Special
5) .41 Magnum
I also have the Model 1950, 45 ACP revolver, both the Army version,
And the Target version.
44 Magnum always wins on availability of commercial ammo (in less crazy times). I have to say though that I rarely shoot any 44 except reloads. I like my 41 because I can reload for it, and Penn Bullets provides just the right lead for it.
Do you load the 295 yr Penn bullet ?
If so, would you share the load info?
Behind the 295 yr, I've been loading 12 gr 2400 for around 1050 fps from a 6" barrel.
I carry a Redhawk 45/45acp every day and my BFR. 454 can shoot 45 colt.
45 it is.
I was referring to 41 Magnum, for which the Penn bullet is 210 gr TCBTB coated.
