    Welcome to the forum!
    I have only been involved with handguns for a short time so I really like my Sig .22,It's very comfortable and easy to shoot so it's easier to get the basics down.
    As for my favorite to gun to shoot just for boom factor it would be my .357.

    Welcome to he Forum!

    I'm a big fan of the .45. I have several, enjoy them and trust them with my life.

    My favorite though is he 10mm Auto. All the way there on power, velocity, bullet weight, sectional density and magazine capacity. Out of a Witness it's reliable, accurate and comforable to shoot.

    When it comes to self defense cartridges the .45 ACP is at the top of my list, it just plain works, it doesn't need any wizard's magic, or tribal incantations to be effective. It sends a big heavy chunk of lead down range, and bad guys tend to take notice when hit by it.

    My favorite is the .45ACP. I have 11 of them. All are 45's but two. One is a 40 S&W, the other a .22.
    Practice till you are real good.
    What type of pistol is your favorite. The single action type auto like the M1911, or the double action ones which are more recent?

    I second that. The guy is looking to be cool because he owns a gun but clearly has little to no respect for firearm safety rules.

    This kid may be the biggest fool I've seen all year.
     
  16. It's too hard to choose.

    I love the .357 mag out of a 5 1/2" barrel wheel gun, the .40 out of a pistol, .44 out of a cap and ball revolver.

    My all time favorite handgun caliber is 45 Colt. Then I would have to say 10mm and .45ACP.

    Aside from that, my favorite hand gun caliber is .45 ACP. Closely followed by .44 Magnum, .357 Magnum, and 9MM, in that order.
