    Who here has a gun that they love to carry and shoot at the range?

    For example, your KelTec p3at might be your favorite summertime carry gun, but its unlikely that you love putting box after box though it at the range.

    Who has a medium-framed gun that is small enough to conceal easily, but also large enough and shootable enough that it is a joy at the range?

    S&W Model 65-2, .357 Magnum. Pinned and recessed, a pleasure to fire .38s through.

    Got JMB?

    I carry and enjoy shooting a 1911 of some flavor, most often a fullsize. Sometimes my carry gun, sometimes a backup.

    I do prefer my Kimber for both mentioned, but my PT145 works good too.

    A full-size 1911, usually the one I carry.

    It's probably not the most fun range gun I have, but it does shoot well for a small gun. It has a nice double action trigger. I probably enjoy shooting my Ruger p89 more than any others I have.

    I own several firearms that I carry and shoot, so its a hard decision as to
    which is my favorite? Right now, I would probably say my 5" Smith & Wesson
    basic stainless (108282) 1911~! :scrutiny:;):D

    My Ruger P97DC is my Carry gun and Range gun. The only other target practice I do is with the .22.

    Not medium-framed, but my little Glock 26 is a lot of fun to shoot and scary accurate for the size.

    The gun I always take and shoot is a Rossi M511 .22 revolver 4" barrel. Why? Cheap practice and no need for saving brass, fun plinking. It is also quite accurate. I've always loved .22s.

    Both my Kahr MK9 and my Glock 26 are very good carry guns AND very good range shooters.

    Because of where I live I cannot carry, but if I did it would be my newly acquired CZ82 and after firing it for the first time a week ago I would love to keep shooting it at the range for fun.

    Some people say the small pistol shooting 9x18 Makarov is hard on the hand, but I am the kinda person who loves shooting a hundred or more rounds of 7.62x25 at a time through the CZ52 one handed, so the CZ82 slap is nothing in comparison for me.

    Glock 17 for the range, Glock 19 for carry, Glock 22 for the nightstand. But I am getting bored, and am looking seriously at the Glock 35 to add diversity.

    My Kahr P45 is my best carry gun although I do have a Beretta 9000s that also works in the same IWB holster but it is a little thicker than the Kahr. Both are good range guns.

    No Where NEAR midsize

    But I love my Sig 226 and My 220!

    Joys to shoot and if I plan right I can carry them easily concealed!
