    Count me in as another fan of that octagonal barrel on your Taylor and Co. Drifter single action!

    My second model New Century in 44 Special. It has a poor re-nickel finish and has fixed sights but it is my favorite gun to go out and shoot.

    Single-action revolvers, especially my battered old Super Blackhawk.

    Answering this question is hard...I would rather say which gun brings me at the moment the most satisfaction for different reasons...

    You're just not the .32 revolver in the pocket kind of guy, are you?

    Adding to this, since I posted a while back...
    I only have two that aren't vastly satisfying, in that they're just tools.
    But while my Savage Mark 2 is satisfying in that it's boringly accurate, my Mosin Nagant is satisfying between being an ally's (at the time) that survived 75 years in great condition and, well, the boom.
    And it's not even mine, and I never expect to fire it more than a couple times, but my dad's 16-gauge Stevens 5100.

    He bought it secondhand (or third- or fourth- hand; he didn't know it was older than his father), and put food on the table every year until we moved, and then when he separated from mom it went into an unconditioned storage for almost a decade.
    I know I've mentioned it, but after I ran across it during his latest move to find the receiver the color and texture of a brick, the stock like driftwood, and the barrel rusted completely out, and then reconditioning it to the state above...
    The gun meant more to dad than me, but he was more proud of me the night I returned that than he'd been collectively across my conscious memory. And that association with it is the most satisfying any gun can ever be.

    After selling my S&W K-22 I was missing a .22lr revolver so I picked up a Heritage with the front and rear fiber optic sights. For under $200 that thing is a bunch of fun and the sights are easy to pick up.

    Well, I'm getting rather fond of this one too, as I use it more and more,

    Pound for pound, my Romanian M69 .22lr training rifle has more meat than al my high power rifle shots combined.

    Not quite on the same level as a drilling, but I was very satisfied shooting my newly acquired S&W 1006 that I had been wanting for quite some time.

    But probably more satisfying is my $150 Star BM, that shoots better than any other pistol I have.

    The most satisfying, in terms of my enjoyment, would have to be my 5yo son’s Savage Rascal. The excitement every time he hits a can @ 10 yards beats the pants off anything I’ve done with a gun, in my lifetime.

    A well worn S&W 10-8. Nearly always ends up in the range bag, sees nothing but wadcutters, and is deadly on clays out to 25-30 yards. Best $300 I have spent on a firearm so far.

    I would say this 4 5/8" Blackhawk does at the moment. It's my newest gun though, and the new hasn't worn off yet. lol
    I've had it for several months now, maybe close to a year, but have only put a bout 200 rounds through it.
    I plan on really putting it through its paces this summer and getting familiar with it. I hope to take my first whitetail with a handgun this year, and it will likely be this one.

    There is No single gun.
    Instead, there are two simple objectives and the fun solutions:

    The very low shooting cost of the .22 handguns on Action Pistol plates means the Ruger Mark IV Standard or M&P. :)
    For simple fun knocking around Academy plastic target spheres on their approx. 18-24" weedeater cords (tied to a stake shoved into a berm) with extremely reliable, rugged and cool-looking rifles-- any of the four imported AKs. :)

    My choice is my 870 Express. It was my first gun and I couldn't even begin to tell you how many thousands of rounds have gone through it. But the action is worn incredibly smooth and there's not a more satisfying sound to me in the gun world than a Remington pump being cycled. I could probably pick that gun out by smell alone, years of Remoil have left it's mark.

    Sadly, I hardly use that gun anymore. I typically hunt small gave now with a .22 or a 20 ga, and now that Ohio deer hunting laws have changed I use a Marlin lever action instead of a slug barrel.

    My Arma Lite 15TBM 223 with a Wylde barrel or my Windham VEX SS 223 Rem both will shoot less than 1/2MOA both have 20 in barrels
