    I just acquired a Flobert Breech Loading Practice Pistol, calibre #1 (6mm rim fire BB cap). Just think, in Paris, in 1848, you could go to the store and buy a pistol and a box of shells to shoot for fun. It would be almost a decade before that level of engineering came to America. The bore is rough, so I will make an interchangeable barrel from a the middle part of a scrap 22RF octagon rifle barrel. Picture in a few days.

    Only own two .22 rimfire handguns; S&W 1st Model 2nd Issue (1861 mfg.) - no I've no idea how it shoots, and a S&W 18-4 which shoots exceedingly well. There's a beautiful Colt New Frontier for sale locally which I've had my eye on for a few weeks. Don't want to show too much interest in it till I'm ready to pounce and just buy it, or dicker, trade etc. We shall see.

    Favorite was my SS MKII bull barrel. But since I'm an idiot, I traded it. Favorites now are Buckmark and my Heritage Rough Rider single 6. May get a Ruger Single Six soon.

    Got no pics of em at the moment but my favorite rimfires are my 4" stainless SP-101 and my "billboard stock" 77/22 All-Weather. A good matched pair of Rugers.

    My favorite autoloader is a tough call.
    I will probably lean towards the Ruger MkII but only because I haven't been lucky enough to own an old High Standard or Colt Woodsman yet.

    Decisions, decisions. You guys make it tough. Never really gave it much thought.

    Autoloader - Colt Huntman '6 vs. CZ SP-01 w/Kadet kit

    The CZ get the nod and the most trigger time. The grip just fits my hand better and the sights are friendlier to my old eyes.

    as stated by others this is a very dificult question , but if i need to actually lable favorite/most used i will go with the following ;

    for the revolver its my colt SAA 38wcf converted to 22LR , i shoot it for SASS prctice and carry it for fun , its a full sized revolver in 22cal unlike my frontier scout , i have many other revolvers of SAA as well as DA/SA versions but this is the one i generally grab for me .........

    and again in the case of the semi-auto i have many i love dearly but the one i reach for most is this browning , it just fits my hand well , it shoots accurately and dependably with most anything i feed it , and except for the buckmark i shoot in competions it gets used more than the others .......

    My favorite rimfire pistol is a Marvel conversion unit on a Colt frame. My favorite rimfire rifle is a Winchester Model 57 I bought for $20.00 from the local hardware store many years ago.
