Browning Hi-Power 9mm, with reasonably "hot" cartridges. There's just something about the balance, grip angle and feel (while shooting) that matches me perfectly. Always has. Still does. Very accurate, very confident, easy to use. Hard to beat.

My FN FiveseveN.

It still amazes me what it will do, even at 50+ yards; virtually no bullet drop.

Her bark is much worse than her bite. Very little recoil, but she sounds like she should kick like a mule!

Depends on what you mean by best...

Target shooting: My 1911

Training: My ruger P89

In a fight, I want the ruger, if I am just out shooting and relaxing, my 1911 is my choice....

They are all 'Point and Click' interfaces.............. depends on how trained you are to cross-over. I personally love high caliber Mag Revolvers and Wheel Guns (in the house). I, go downtown with my M-1911 because I know what I can do with the first two shots..........

Again, all of this discussion is about personal preference and comfort (mentally and physically).

When jumping out of a high performance aircraft, we have a saying of 'go with what you know', and you and your loved ones should do the same.

I'm just as happy with my .22 LR BUG, in that I know where the rounds will end.

So, pick a weapon and train safely and accurately with it! It is not the weapon that kills, it is you and how proficient you are with the weapon.......... Just sayin (my opinion)

Heck, if all I have is a sharp stick.............. well, be prepared for a sharp stick........................

CZ 75 SA

With a trigger pull just under 3 lbs., it isn't exactly a carry gun anymore. :)

I think I shoot all of my guns equally well. It doent matter which one I grab I can empty it into the kill zone at a respectable distance for the weapon involved., and they all go bang when I pull the trigger. My LCR is prob the one I shoot the tighest groups with, but I shoot it at closer distances too. If I had to pick my most accurate, I would have tyo say my G22. It is deadly a lot further than I can accurately shoot it.

A quote from Jeff Cooper in his wonderful book, " The Art of the Rifle". I believe it pertains to handguns also, and believe he would agree.

"A marksman is one who can make his weapon do what it was designed to do."

"An expert marksman is one who can hit anything he can see, under appropriate circumstances"

"A master marksman is one who can shoot up to his rifle"

I believe this to be th truest of statements regardless of rifle or handgun.
