    I have revolvers and pistols. I would rather shoot my pistols for marksmanship or defensive practice. I sometimes carry my snubby wheel gun, but most of the time I carry one of my pistols. I try to stay proficient with both.

    Revolvers for just plain fun!

    Especially single action revolvers. Especially unmodified Ruger Old Models.
    I really like the sound of four clicks when I cock it. I really like not having
    to chase brass all over the place!

    I really like the versatility of revolvers. I can load my .44 up really hot, or
    I can load it way down so the bullet is almost visible as it goes down
    range. You can't do that with most semi-autos because they won't
    function with the really light loads.

    So, for a relaxing day at the range, you can't beat an old SA revolver!

    Hands down the best one is........................The one in my hand when the hammer drops..lol

    They both ave their place, I love my 1911's but there's something about a wheel gun that make me want to shoot them too. I look at a handgun as both a tool and a piece of hand held art in form and function. A well designed, well built handgun is just one of the best examples of art I have been allowed to see. Fit and finish, the function, the sound and what happens to water filled containers or those pieces of paper I hang up to poke holes in. I even look at those pieces of paper with pride when I make those holes in a pattern that makes me happy

    For fun? All of the ones I own are fun, but for pure enjoyment, I really like my SAA Uberti .45LC. It's a blast, and a tack driver.

    Nothing in the world more fun than a Colt SAA.

    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.
