Lots of serious carry handguns are featured here which is appropriate since this is Defensive Carry Forum but what about those of you who keep certain handguns around just for fun and frolic? There are probably some really great handguns in some Forum members' collections (accumulations?) that would be inspiring to see.
A fun gun could be described as most anything other than a dedicated self defense handgun. Its size, design, or features may or may not be suitable for concealed carry, open carry, or for household defensive use. A fun gun may be for relaxation or a shooting "change of pace." A fun gun may be a field companion for hiking or for pursuit of game. It may be fun because it is a new-in-the box example of an uncommon or long discontinued model or an unfired commemorative. It may fit any of the following:
Formal target competition of any sort
...and especially .22 rimfire handguns. Nothing else offers the unique fun and practice opportunities that may be had with .22 handguns.
Here are a few of my very favorites.
My favorite of all. Smith & Wesson Model 17 K-22 Masterpiece .22. Purchased new 30 years ago.
Semi-auto .22 that complements the above Model 17. Colt Woodsman
A pleasure to shoot on the range with accuracy that is amazing. Colt Officer's Model Match 38 Special, a 1957 "classic" like me.
Fully equal to the above Colt OMM is this Smith & Wesson Model 14 K-38 Masterpiece .38 Special, the centerfire companion to my Model 17 and purchased at the same time as the K-22.
Big bore version of the trio of long-nosed Smith & Wessons, for hunting or range use with a "kick." Smith & Wesson Model 29 .44 Magnum purchased 30 years ago. 1980 was a good year.
When really accurate 45 ACP bullet placement is called for this Colt Gold Cup answers. Bought new in 1981-1982 (can't quite remember).
And last but not least, this 80-year-old Smith & Wesson Hand Ejector .32-20 makes a fine field/plinking companion when paired with a .32-20 lever action carbine.
We can see "serious" side arms elsewhere on the Forum. What sort of handguns do y'all keep on hand strictly for other purposes?
