    my favorite varies on the "for what" part of the question :). Overall it has to be my Beretta PX4 storm 9mm. 17rd mags, rotating barrel, lightweight poly frame, and really easy to break down and clean. It is my main target practice gun and has never let me down. That said, for a truck gun the Taurus Model 83 I just picked up is pretty great. Cheap, accurate, and reliable. My Sig P226R .357 is also an awesome gun, and I think if I could only have one handgun, it would be this one. Soooo I guess I can't narrow it down :)

    Mine would be my go to gun, and the one I carry all the time. It started life as a Norinco copy of the Colt 1911A, and then went thru some changes at the hands of the Great Jim Clark. I've had it for well over 20 years, and it is still as accurate today as it was when Jim shot it for a proof target!

  5. Hmmmm.......I guess first and foremost, it would be my Thompson Auto Ord 1911-a1, purchased from a LEO friend, who passed away a few years ago, and worked over by ANOTHER LEO friend, who has also gone beyond. The original owner (an FFL as well as LEO) just flat out didnt like it, and switched to an IMI Baby Eagle .41 AE, sold it to me CHEAP, and I was quick to find that it wouldnt feed ANYTHING but Ball. I gave it to the second guy, along with a Nam era GI barrel, and he throated it, polished the feed ramp, added a long link, fitted a match bushing and made some SERIOUS improvements to the trigger. After I got it back, I added a full length rod and shok-buff, a flat mainspring housing, and a pair of really neat looking smooth grips with hand hammered inlaid brass wire. It now feeds ANYTHING, even upside down, holds an amazingly tight group, and contains any one of a number of McCormick 8shot shooting stars, in "black stainless" that McCormick originally released to us govt/LE at an unbelievably cheap price, probably 20 year ago for what I guess was a "preproduction shake down run." Its been my go to gun for most of those 20 years.

    Yes, that about sums it up.

    Or maybe, the last one that I brought home is always my favorite.
