    Hello there!

    My favorite is my Ruger P95 9mm. This pistol fits my hand perfectly and is very friendly for a lefty like me. It is very accurate and flawlessly functional.

    I met someone at the range who was shooting his S&W MP and was punching 6-8 inch groups in his target at 21 feet (7-yards). He asked me what I was shooting and after telling him I let him take it for a spin. After 15 rounds he had grouped a 3-4 inch cluster and was very impressed with the gun and himself. He left that day saying his next purchase would be a P95...a convert for sure!

    My P220 Combat. I love how it feels when shooting it and I shoot it well.

    P2226 X5 Tac is right up there, though.

    ...

    I was weaned on a Beretta Px4 40cal..

    Over the years, bought 2, nice, used Sig P229n/r 40's

    All 3, DA/SA

    Have, also, Sig P220R/45 - luv it

    Also have 3 9mm's (luv them)

    P229R with CT grips and P228n/r 9mm's

    1 (luv it) SA EMP SAO 1911 9mm..

    But I like and shoot the 40's the most, bar none (hell of a horse ride at first) but once you get to know the horse/power.. and to relax with it, it's the best ride in the stable.. "with the right horses/guns" - makes a huge difference

    Throw in some luck - having just felt/never shot any of my guns prior to stepping up and becoming a full-time owner of such great, balanced, forgiving, guns that showed me the way.

    1911 style .45's. This was what I first shot for handguns and it just stuck.

    Many other handguns later I enjoy shooting most of them but my money keeps going back to 1911's.

    Well I almost had to toss a coin, and I really do like .45's the best, but my favorite pistol is my Browning Hi-Power, so I had to go with the 9mm.

    9mm - The Beretta 92FS. Favorite for many reasons, but mostly, it's just...so...pretty.

    My favorite is my STI Shadow that I use as my CCW. It's a .45 3" 1911. No stories behind it, but it's a perfect match for me.

    Why isn't a .22 an option? Too many quality .22s out there to be left out.

    There is not much you can't do with a 45 ACP. It is a great self defense round, can be used to hunt small to medium game if needed and is quite accurate for target shooting. If I was hungry and only had a 45 it would take smaller deer sized game with little trouble.

    I like 9mm cause I like to shoot long distances with it for fun(human silhouette @ 100yds). Its just more predictable at that distance and serves perfectly as personal protection(although not better than .45).

    This is a really difficult poll for me. I've got quite a few handguns, so whichever one I'm fondling at the moment is my favorite. Another way to answer is to say whichever one I most recently purchased. :)

    My latest conquest would be a Magnum Research (American Made) Desert Eagle .50 AE. So new I haven't even had a chance to shoot it yet. I love holding it, pointing it, being with it. I think I'm in love! :D

    None of the above. My funnest revolver is a .32 S&W long 1920ish hand ejector. It goes to the range with me every time I do.
