    .22's are ok I just get bored with them too easy (unless it is those derringer pistols like the NAA they have a bit more recoil because of the size and that I don't mind too much). For me it is .40. I like the snappy feel of it. When i shoot I want to feel it. Good way to vent some anger (I am officially in love with those zombie bleeding targets though hey are pricey. Definitely a different feel than shooting at cardboard, paper, tin cans, or 2 liter bottles).

    I consolidated the calibers I now have down to 9mm, 22lr, 22mag, shotgun I may be getting a 223 again but that`s it.....I`ve sold off all the other calibers years ago...they just didn`t make any sense anymore....22`s are the fun caliber I have them from a Smith 41 to a new Ruger sr22 pistol I just purchased. At 3/5 cents a shot you just can`t beat them...

    Sometimes when I design a course for the members of my club and want to try it out on the cheap I use the .22 ammo. However, the 9mm is more of a realistic indicator after all is refined.

    For cost reasons I shoot mostly .22LR (typically 1-2 bricks a week, rotating 7 .22's). I also rotate my centerfire weapons, however, my hands down favorite is .45 acp's in any 1911.

    I too will have to say that I use my .22 cal semi-auto more then my 9mm. Basically, it's because of the cost. I can shoot all day with my M&P22, but for my 9mm, well, it's a much shorter day.

    True that.

    If you shoot a lot - the difference in cost between a 9mm & a .40 can buy you a nice gun each year.

    Same for difference between 9mm and .22 cal

    I shoot my 9mm's much more ...

    but with the high costs & just gonna getting worse - I'm shooting .22 more now than I ever have since college.

    I've always enjoyed shooting .380 ACP, myself.

    Like to shoot my Sig P6 9mm, but cost of ammo keeps it to once or twice a month. Shoot mostly my Browning Buckmark 22..

    I shoot my S&W 22A and Ruger Mk III a lot, great fun, lots of variety in things to shoot at; 9mm a lot in part because my Glock 19 is my serious gun; I also really like to shoot .32acp

    I enjoy shooting .45 ACP the most. The gentle push of this low-pressure round is just...nice. But, it gets expensive, so I also shoot a lot of 9mm and .22, if I have time for a long range session. When I want to "feel the power," I shoot 10mm and .357 Mag.

    I reload for most pistol calibers so my favorite gun/caliber is the one I just finished shooting. A nice 22 makes for some cheap practice.

    I always liked shooting my .45acp handguns but with the price of Ammo. I bought two 9mm and again enjoy shooting them.

    I practice with .38's more than anything else. I can load them pretty cheap with cast bullets and one of my EDC is a .357. plus I have a Rossi 92 in .357

    Lately I have been shooting mostly my CCW .357Mag because I wan't to be very proficent with it. But when I am not shooting it I am shooting my new .44 magnum to get use to it because it is going to be my new home defense gun.

    45ACP followed by 9mm and 44SP. I reload and my 45's don't cost me much more than medium target grade 22's. plus I find a 22 boring.

    I too like the .380 and .45 acp. Cost isn't to big of a deal as I cast and handload everything I shoot. Primers are the biggest expense on the .380 as I can get 3000 loads out of a a pound of Bullseye.

    22 lr by far. I shoot all of my calibers and try to rotate them around but the .22 is just so dang much fun. To me it is a stress reliever.

    Exactly the same for me.
