I really enjoy my P226. It's accurate, great trigger and simple to clean.

It's gotta be my P220ST.

The next runner up is a Beretta 92FS.

so far, it's my s&w sw1911pd w/rail. it feels so good in the hand and shoots way better than my s&w m&p40. it's a tack driver right out of the box. i have yet to shoot my fn five-seven, but i doubt that will be any better than the 1911.

Some here might think I'm off my rocker, but shooting my .50AE Desert Eagle always puts a smile on my face.

Hmmm, tossup...

- S&W 625 (45ACP revolver)
- S&W 1006 10mm autoloader.

I do love my Ruger single actions too, esp the 50th Anniv Blackhawk in 38/357

Any of my 1911's. I can't decide which I like best.

I really enjoy shooting my 4-inch 686+ as well, and I'm really looking forward to my HK USP45 Expert which might be even more fun that my standard USP45's

There are a couple, but the Smith M24-3 .44 Special is always one of them.

It depends on what type of shooting I'm doing. If I'm at a Cowboy match, I love my Ruger Vaqueros in .357 mag (not the New model)

Otherwise, I like my GLOCK 21.

My favorite gun for fun shooting is my S&W 617, a 10 shot .22. Just drop in the rounds and blast away.

Right now my favorite handgun to shoot at paper is a Walther CAP22 because it's accurate and reliable and cheap to shoot. However, my favorite handgun to shoot overall is the Colt 1911 in .45 ACP of course.

I love shooting my CZ97B. Accurate as hell and recoil is low. Trigger is great esp with the over travel screw I put in. Its a very solid pistol that feels like one big hunk of metal. No rattling or clanking at all. I'll never sell it.

+1 on that except that my Sig P229 is in .357 Sig (which I prefer over the 40SW).
