    I used to have many "fun" guns, from a Baretta 22 short to an antique Colt 45. But I traded those in on "serious" guns now that I'm old: 22 target pistol for practice and an MP40 for home defense. It is hard now to consider any gun as a "fun" gun. In the near future I will probably pick up a small 9mm CC weapon, a medium 9 mm auto, a Ruger Combo 9mm/357mag SA revolver and perhaps a 1911-type 45ACP which could all be considered recreational guns.

    I will say that recently an old codger - at least as old as I am - showed me how to have fun with a gun. In the booth right next to me he put a man target out 6 feet and started blasting it with a Taurus Judge using mixture of 410 and 45 Colt and perhaps other projectiles all at once! The sound and fury had me doubled up with laughter. Observers must have thought us two "cue tips" had lost all our marbles as we laughed at what that thing would have done. We had a good laugh. That weapon can only be considered serious if you are confronted with a large gang standing off 5 to 10 feet. Fewer adversaries standing her out could only die from fear.

    For me the 40 S&W then the 10mm. I reload both and have found that I can be more accurate with my handloads than most factory ammo. Like the 22lr but only have rifles for it right now.

    Guess I'd have to split my vote between 9MM Parabellum and .38 Special. (Although I do like .380 ACP, too!)

    All my handguns are fun guns or plinking guns even the three c.c. guns. I shoot them all, Iwant them to be an extention of my right hand.

    .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.
