    Favorite Centerfire Handguns

    1. Full-Size Revolver
    Dan Wesson M15 6" .357 Mag

    2. Full-Size Semi-Auto
    Dan Wesson Valor .45 ACP

    3. Carry Revolver
    S&W Model 60 .38 Special +P

    4. Carry Semi-Auto
    S&W Shield .45 ACP

    The specific manufacturers were a coincidence. I don't have any particular brand bias (and don't even consider the two DW to be from the same company).

    Not the most practical, or what I would reach for in a gunfight, perhaps, but my "favorites" nonetheless.

    :confused:.....That's like asking which of your kids is your favorite.

    That's why I have so many different ones, couldn't make up my mind. :)

    To me favourite means accurate.
    That's the reason why I love my Pardini GT9-1, SIG-Sauer P226, Norinco TT-Olympia, Weihrauch Target Trophy and last but not least my brand new Grand Power Q100.
    The Walther P99 AS is not as accurate as the others but it is my nightstand gun so I still love and trust it enought...

    Not so much. My wife could easily tell you which kid is my favorite. I couldn't even tell you my favorite handguns.
    I could name a few least favorite handguns

    My favorites are EDC M&P Shield 9 ,5906 and 686. Five year old Shield is very dependable and accurate also have M&P 9 FS would sell if needed the others are keepers

    Guns are like golf clubs. You can’t have just one. There are many, many uses.

    Anything in 327FM. If I had to pick just one of those I guess it would be GP100

    I like that some have matched blades to their roscoes.

    I have too many of both to have ultimate favorites, but I usually carry a Sig P938, a Benchmade autofolder, and a very small 5.11 fixed blade carried upside down ready for deployment on the sling I carry my phone on.

    When it comes to big autos my Les Baers rule, and my bigger blade is a Puma Automesser that I bought in '74. But that is a blade that has seen much use.

    When it comes to the favorite blade in my collection then it is Ken McFall's 8" ladder damascus blade with 8 thin spacers and a flat brass pommel custom mated to the elk horn grip in a custom made crocodile leather sheath worth every penny of the $1450 it cost me. I have a more valuable blade, a pamir kris that my dad brought back from Indonesia 50 years ago, but it is not my style.

    The McFall bowie would get its first use if I decided to go on safari.

    Favorite revolvers would include both Smith 625s, a 610 (10mm), a Mountain Lite .44spl, and my EAA Windicator .357 mag.

    Do I notice a slight inclination to the .38 Super and the .41 Mag?
