    I really enjoy shooting the Sig P250 (40 cal) and the S&W 686, but the one that gets the most rounds at the range is the G27, because is my EDC.

    Out of all my guns, believe it or not the one I probably have the most fun with is my blued Ruger MKIII Target. I can shoot all afternoon on the cheap, get a lot of trigger practice and "plink" at anything that ain't movin'. And it runs 100% of the time.

    Favorite ??? That's really hard to tell. I think it changes as much as the weather does.

    I don't have it yet, but once I find out what kind of ammo it likes, my favorite will be the M&P 15/22 I've got on layaway now.

    $30 can either be turned into 100 rounds of .40 for me, or 80 rounds of 7.62x39, or 100 rounds of cheap 12 gauge, or around 1100 rounds of .22lr instead.

    My favorite range gun is my .22 Marlin Rifle. It's cheap to shoot and a ton of fun to shoot out at 100 yards. I love shooting my 9mm Sigma, but it costs a lot more. If I weren't buying a sub compact 9mm for carry I would be looking into a .22 handgun.

    I LOVE a pump shotgun.

    And anything new.

    How about that Sig Mosquito? Cheap and fun.

    Also practice with a carry firearm, that's just a feel good thing.

    My favorite is probably a Liberty 44-40 with 4 5/8 barrel, or a pair of them actually. Basically they are Colt Peacemaker clones.

    They are just fun to shoot. You can go through a lot of rounds if you want, but only 6 at a time, and you can shoot hundreds of rounds without getting fatiqued. Mostly I shoot at old propane bottles set from 10-15 yrds all the way out to maybe 30-35 yds.

    This caliber is what made me start to reload because factory rounds are anywhere from 25 to 40 bucks for 50. That got pretty expensive, 6 bucks for 50 makes it much more fun to shoot.

    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    Favorite range rifle is a Springfield Model 1922AII in .22 Long Rifle. Right behind it would be a Smith & Wesson Model 17 with 8 3/8-inch barrel, also in .22 Long Rifle.

    I like my M&P 40S&W but I love shooting my fathers S&W Model 19-2 .357mag snubbie... I like it with either the .357magnum rounds or just shooting regular .38spl. Not alot of kick from the .357mag and no kick from the .38's It is such a wll balanced gun it is easily controllable.

    Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.

    If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.

    Colt Government .38Super. Such a pleasant round in a heavy gun with a single action trigger. Lots of fun.

    Sig 226 X-five in 9mm is by far my favorite range gun. Its a tack driving machine!
