    I don't yet own any handguns, but I have been having a lot of fun shooting friends' and friends' dad's guns. I have to say I really prefer autos. Maybe it's because I grew up in the age of technology, and I just like the many moving parts all working together rather than the simplicity of revolvers, or maybe it's because I'm a city kid. But it's what I like.

    Either a semi auto or a real big revolver. The S&W 500 with the 4 inch barrel got a fun bang

    I have to say that for me the fun part of shooting is training; I'm just not into going out and arbitrarily shooting. Its just not my thing. So for me I have to say the Semi-auto.

    heres why i like the sbh ruger in 44 mag. many years ago i read an article in one of the gun mags about a government hunter in one of the western states. he said that he only would use the ruger sbh 44 mag because he could take 1 or 2 shots at a predator, and if he had to persue that predator he could eject the 1 or 2 cartriges and re-load without having to eject all of the cartridges as in a double action revolver. it made sence to me then and it still does;. i love the model 29 s&w but i use the super blackhawk 44 mag as my preference. just my 2 cents

    I have a decent sized collection of handguns, both semi's and revolvers. The semi's put a bigger smile on my face and that's how I voted. However, since I started reloading I've been shooting my revolvers more. Chasing brass is a PIA.

    P.S. Spacedoggy, I love your signature line.

    I like shooting autos more than SA's when it's just for fun, but I do love my SA's too. More than anything, I love shooting steel. There's just something about that instant gratification of shooting steel targets with an auto. I don't remember if I'd posted these here, but here's a fun day of shooting...

    Fun, huh. . . . . . .

    Let's see, I started with a Model 10 .38spl at the academy, progressed over the years to a BHP for choice of carry during narcotics investigation. Left Law Enforcement for the Marine Corps and did 8, then Sales Job to support both wife and habit. Still have shooting habit, minus the wife. Girlfriend shoots though, quite well. But for pure fun, for me at least the SO's MP5's in the Fun house in competition with others for accuracy and time. Not just blazing away rock and roll, deliberate shooting for results with the reserve. Next would be my Beretta 96. Like I said "Fun, huh" well that's different for all of us as the choice of weapons we enjoy or use as tools of the trade.

    Which one is more fun?

    Actually, I like the one that goes "BANG"!

    No, really depends on what kind of mood I'm in. For extra precision shoooting, I like my Ruger Blackhawk .357mag with a 6 1/2" barrel. But I also like my TZ99 9mm with a 4" barrel. While the TZ is accurate enough to do 15rds inside 6" groups at 25yds, the Ruger with scope is hard to beat. Both are really more accurate than I am. "I LIKE BOTH!"

    I voted "Bob and Baldy" not because I give a hoot about what they said but because my real choice wasn't up there. I love shooting my revolvers and my semi autos. I'm on the range to relax and have fun. If I'm shooting well that day, I'm having fun; doesn't matter what I'm shooting with (or "with what I may be shooting" if you want to be grammatically correct). If I'm shooting poorly that day, it still beats the heck out of going to work (ok ok, geezer cliche). I when I shoot!

    Submoa,
    Is that the Great Salt Lake behind your truck there?

    I'd go shooting with your wife any day of the week! Lucky man.

    That's a question like "Blonde or Brunette?" or "Scotch or Bourbon?" or "LS6 or Hemi?" or "Lager or Ale?" or "Bratwurst or kielbasa?"

    I voted auto. I own both and I do enjoy the revolver. But I just love to shoot scenarios and dueling trees. I can reload any of my autos faster than I can reload my revolvers. Perhaps with more practice I could get them closer, but I will never reload like Mikulec.

    I own both and had to vote for revolvers being more fun to shoot. Don't get me wrong, my Beretta is a hoot to shoot for sure, but there is just something about blowing up whiskey bottles lined up on a fence post while on horse back at full speed with a six gun in each hand!

    I also enjoy the ritual that goes with loading and unloading a wheel gun more than I do cramming bullets into a magazine. Another fun thing about revolvers is the variety of bang among just the traditional loads from .22 up to .44 mag.

    I take my vote back. After shooting my dad's 357MAG Python at a 5x4 foot target at 100 yards standing up and being able to keep a 3x3 foot group, I had a ton more fun doing that than I've ever had with a semi auto

    Hmm......I don't know. My current 1911 can hold a 2.5" group at 50 yards. From a bench rest I can nail a 2-litter bottle every time at 100 yards and hit it 6 or 7 out of 10 standing up . But shooting my brother-in-laws 6" Colt Python was a real hoot as well.
