    Found it! Found my most Favoriiite hand gun.

    I understand that a favorate hand gun is very subjective and a matter of personal perference, however as for now I have hit the mother load.:)

    Got two new guns in my stable and have come back from the range after their virgin firing. Have a new Sig and the Rohrbaugh R.

    That little R9 is a handful and you better get a good grip on that bad boy when you crank a round off. It ate ball and hollow pts with no problemo.

    At 5-10 yds was a good grouper. I was impressed. It obviously is a carry much and fire little type, for its not really that much fun after about 25 fired down range.

    Now, cut to the chase..........

    I also took my new Sig P239 SAS DAK trigger .40sw cal. I have never fired a .40sw and read all about the "snap" and some post that poo pooed the 40 so I was a little tenative about welcoming it with open arms. Was even thinking I might want to change out the barrel and get a .357 barrel.

    Ran about 70 rounds through the Sig and from the first round was elated.:D If this is the "snap", ....pass the snap. I love the way it fired.

    What a sweet shootin piece of fine art work. This is my fav of the guns I now own. I am not even close to a gun expert or collector but here are the guns I own but this Sig is a shootin son of a gun.

    Kimber Tactical Ultra II .45, Ed Brown Custom Kobra Carry .45, Colt Defender (mat) .45, Colt Python (nickel) .357, Colt Diamondback (nickel) .38, Colt Viper (nickel) .38, Colt King Cobra (ss) .357, Colt Pocket Nine. (stainless) 9mm, Colt Mustang Pocketlite (stainless) .380, Robrbaugh R9 9mm, American Arms Derringer .410, America Remembers 1911 USMC Viet-nam commemorative .45(unfired of course)

    I know I have fired a very limited # of hand guns, never fired an HK nor a CZ(I have fired an Ontos, but probably no one who was not in Nam knows what that is) but so far....I have a winner as far as fun and some carry.

    And the winner is.................

    Post your favorates...if only are on a desert island, like Long Island and you can only have one.

    Most fave? Shucks man - that's a hard line to have to fill. Most of mine are fave's but for different reasons.

    Glad you like the lil' R9 - it's an amazing gun, and I have two early ones. These have just been brought up to latest spec by small spring changes etc. Not the most comfortable gun to shoot too much but very ''comforting'' if that is all you might have. My R9 FAQ site covers quite a bit tho some aspects are becoming out of date.

    As for the SIG well - you got a fine piece there.

    My EDC SIG 226 is perhaps my fave but that is for carry aspect. My all over fave because of shere grin factor has to be my BFR in 45-70 - it just - well, it just - rocks!!!

    Note, my #2 R9 is old enough to still have the old blue CF grips, altho I have recently added G-10 grips to try em out.

    P95Carry, I understand the grin factor. I started grinning as soon as I saw the picture. That is one nice revolver. I have a fair number of handguns and carry a 1911 but my favorite is also a revolver. Ruger Redhawk 357.

    .40 S&W is not that snappy if you hold it right and have a heavy enough handgun.

    Favorite gun?

    I've often fantasized about putting all my pistols in a circle
    and letting them Duke it out until the least worthy is banished
    -SIG , it's What's for Dinner-

    Sigs 228, 220 and 239. I am very partial to Glock's G19 too. Its like asking a father which is his favorite child...

    My favorite is my P239 in 9mm. I've sold quite a few pistols in the last year and this is the only one left (although I'm fighting the urge to pick up a 9mm Springer Loaded 5" 1911).

    Without a doubt my Sig P22? I have three non rail models and I love them all. I will post pictures when I can find the camera. If I had to pick only one it would be a coin toss. I would hate to give up any of them, but would not feel "stuck" with any of them.

    Those DAK triggers are the smoothest I've ever pulled. And on top of it, it is an's a piece of art not a gun.
