    I think the 4" medium frame, .357 Magnum revolver is as "perfect" as one can get in a sidearm but I really do like Bob Wright's idea.

    Funny that question came up. I was just reading about a very interestng revolver that was made in Russia in the early '90's. It was a top break (like the old Scholfield's) with a polymer lower frame and grip. DA/SA .357 mag. The extractor actually threw the empty cases out of the cylinder. It came with either a 4" or 6" barrell. A .357mag, .44 mag, or .45 either ACP or Long Colt would make for a nice revolver. I would love to have one of those. Or even 2. 1 .357 mag 4" and 1 .45 LC 6".

    Check out http://worldguns.ru/main-e.htm, and go to handguns, then look for the " IzMech MP-412 " in the revolver section.

    So the majority's "perfect gun" would be a double-single .45ACP with a staggered mag. Polymer/Aluminum frame and blued/stainless are a toss-up. So, you need a Sig P220 or a Ruger P90 that accepts Glock 21 mags.

    interesting poll but not detailed enough
    for what purpose would this gun be used for?
    i voted along the lines of CCW but if it was for hunting it would be different

    this year one of the mag articles did the same poll internally (i think) and the results were the 44 mag because of the wide power range with 44 specials but i don't remember the barrell length

    as far as autos go its hard to not vote for the colt govt 45

    Good poll. It pretty clearly shows by the varied responses that there is no "perfect gun". It's a good thing too, otherwise it would be rather hard to justify buying more than one ;D
