    For me personally it's the 9mm , 45 auto, and 38 specials are kind of fun . Iam not really into recoil so those are my favorites :)

    357, 38spcl, 45acp & .22LR.
    Tend to shoot more 38spcl than the magnums. Always try to get in a few cylinders of full house hunting loads per trip though.

    .45 caliber with S.W.C.'s. I can see the holes better in the dimly lit indoor ranges I have to use. :mad:

    I shoot most 45, because I like to keep my control disipline with the firearm. Less accidents that way.

    Next the S&W 40. With it's recoil I need all the pratice I can get to assure the ability to hit exactly what I want to hit.

    Last the 9mm, I find it very easy to shoot all day long to the point of it not providing much of a challange, but lots of gratificaton for the tight shot patterns. :cool:

    I use a 223 and a MP-5 quite a bit also, but more for jam/clear routines, they cost too much to run all the time!:eek:

    22 LR. More bangs for the buck.

    38 Special. Love revolvers. DA natural point shooting is so fun. Can't get the same joy from a revolver.
