Firearms?

Any gun owners out there? Specifically calling on pistol owners. What gun do you shoot and why? Model, caliber, etc...

I'm in the market and have my eyes set on a .44 mag, .40 and 9mm.

I like to shoot 9mm (less expensive) and .45. I reload both as well. But, if I had it to do over again, I'd probably stick primarily with .40 caliber. It's a good middle ground between the others, ammo is widely available, and there are a lot of cool models.

My absolute favorite pistol to shoot is the Springfield XD. It comes in 9mm and .45 ACP. It is very well made, shoots consistently, and with my short fingers, it's the only handgun with a double-stack 9mm magazine that fits my hand. It's not a compact handgun, but I like the multiple safety features and the mechanical attributes available with a slightly larger handgun.

I also like to shoot the Smith&Wesson .357 magnum. If I was to buy a .44 mag, I'd probably get their stainless model with a 6-inch barrel. But man, that's a hand cannon! What I like about the .357 is that the ammunition is more powerful than the automatic ammo (9mm, .40, ,45), but you can also shoot the much less powerful .38 ammo. In fact, when I taught my kids to shoot at the range, I loaded .38 rounds with a bit less powder to reduce the kick, which makes it fun to shoot. With fully loaded .357, it kicks like a mule!

I know what you mean. I've always wanted to like Glocks and I love the way they look, but I just don't like the way they shoot or fit in my hands.

Thanks for the comments, guys! The S&W is apparently a Glock "knockoff". It comes in the .40 and 9mm. Both felt really good in my hand.

It got pretty good reviews from the store and I read some good stuff online.

I've got my grandfather's Colt Python .357, and it's a dream to shoot. I've also got a Bursa .380 which is pretty nice. Have my concealed carry license, but it's only to not have a waiting period. I've also got a pretty pink case to carry my guns in

It is not a knockoff at all. Smith and Wesson has been around for much longer than Glock.

agreed!

I have not had it long. I've only put 12 rounds through it. The trigger pull was incredibly far and i couldn't shoot it very well at all. I am getting the trigger re adjusted right now actually.

As far as my 22-250, it is a Remington 700 ADL. I LOVE it. Bought it last year for coyote hunting. Its been pretty dependable and accurate.

Anyone else shoot this gun?
