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.
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.
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.
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.
i second the s&w model 41, i have both barrels and a red dot on one, plus 12 mags. all day fun. my goal it to spend way more on ammo to run thru it than i did for the gun. hope i have to buy new barrels.
.38Spl or .357 Magnum, it's just fun to shoot, and the one I carry most often, and the one I will be using in competition.
I picked this one up for Mother's Day last year, and I get more and more accurate, every time I take it to the range.
Gorgeous to look at, fun to shoot, but a bit bulky to carry.
