Hey Mike, shot a Taurus lately? I know there are haters out there that say they're junk, but Taurus has really turned things around. Pick one up, handle it, inspect it, and judge the quality against any of the other brands. Then see if you can find someone to let you shoot one. I have a 24/7 OSS in black, 5.25" barrel, 9mm and it shoots sweet. I know this ain't much of an accuracy test, but I just took my CHL here in Texas and put all 50 rounds in a 4 inch circle. Tore the middle out of it! And I had just bought it at Academy the day before. Didn't even have time to shoot it prior to the class. My CHL instructor had to stop and check out what I was shooting. Couldn't believe it was a Taurus. No, I'm not a marksman.... its just a sweet shooting gun.

FYI, I've owned a glock 17 (didn't fit my hand), s&w 4006 (one of the sweetest shooting guns I've owned), colt 1911a1 (lost in divorce), beretta 92fs (grip too large, and I've got big hands), taurus pt917c (same as beretta), colt python (lost in divorce), and a s&w 686 (lost in divorce).
No I won't say this is the best gun I've owned (still partial to my 4006 that I lost in my divorce) but this Taurus can hold its own against any of them.

My BB gun is my favorite
I was real partial to my BB gun when I was a kid. I used to like to shoot at red wasps, you know those aggressive and mean wasps that would chase you. One fine spring day, feeling my oats, or brain dead, depending on your school of thought, I spotted a red wasp nest in the corner of a three sided shed that was behind our house. I took aim and pelted the nest and all hell broke loose as you can imagine. I was standing about 8 to 10 feet from the nest when I noticed one wasp drop from the nest and head straight toward me. I knew I had to do something quick and running wasn't gonna cut it, so almost instinctively I raised my BB gun, cocked it and leveled it at the wasp which was still flying straight toward my face. Well, the shot of my life took place, one I'd never be able to duplicate, but like a Clint Eastwood rifle shot in fluid motion I, cocked, leveled, sighted and fired. Knocking that red wasp right out of the air about 2 feet from the end of my BB gun. OH man it was heaven. Everything was in slow motion and a perfectness of thought and action took place. I found the wasp which was dead on the ground. I knocked him down with a hit to his head, boom, gone, threat terminated. And wow. Last red wasp nest I ever shot at, it was like the pinnacle, the top, the best that shooting a BB gun could ever get. True story, not that I'm real proud of it or anything. I think I was all of 13, maybe. Let me tell you though, I strutted around the farm for, maybe, a month knowing I could kill in one quick, surgical motion. Beware insects. Horn is on duty and he takes no prisoners. Oh, man, to be a kid again.
Added later; My vote is Beretta, cougar or mini-cougar, Kahr MK9/40, Para Ordnance 9mm (my carry gun) and like Brazier, Glocks are not on my list even tho I carried a G27 for several years. Good and solid, but I hate plastic on a gun. It's ok in a lunch box, but not on a gun. Of course, I carry heavy guns. lol

None, the Sig P226 with the Beretta 92FS in a close second, Glocks are not even on my list

My S&W M&P's are growing on me more and more.
Inexpensive, reliable, and very ergonomic

My HK USPc is my current favorite. Years ago I had a Browning HP. Don't know how that one got away from me, but it ranks as my all time favorite of the various pistols and revolvers I've owned in my lifetime.
06-08-2009, 03:37 PM
I have to go with the Beretts 92FS, it's a fine and reliable pistol, nice looking too!
06-08-2009, 04:06 PM
Ruger GP 100 and Springfield XDM 9mm
06-09-2009, 04:08 PM
1. Sig 220, 4.4 inch barrel, stainless
2. Colt Gold Cup Trophy, stainless
3. Beretta FS92 stainless
In that order of preference

This is truely a tough one - I love so many.
Probably my Kimber .45 or my Sig Sauer P230 .380 or my Ruger Vaquero .45 or my Walther PPK.S .380 cal or my Smith & Wesson .45 .
See what I mean - it's a very tough question and I haven't even started on long guns
