In bear country it was my Ruger dbl action 454 w/2.5 inch bbl solid hardcast loads. In the cities a toss up between XD40 XD45 or Glock29 10mm. I like punching big holes. Never cared for the 9's even when it was issued carry.

My Dad told me years ago, if it is a handgun, and you can see the #4 in the caliber it has to be good. Except the #4 on steroids the good old 10mm the big boy 40s&w

45 Colt for handguns, HANDS DOWN! I can load this thing with softball loads and let kids plink with it, or stoke it with big, tough, heavy bullets that shoot through damn near anything.
For rifles its got to be my 7x57...easy to shoot well, deadly of whitetails, and doesn't kill the shooter in the process.

I really dont have a favorite caliber but i would say that 9x19, .45 acp, and .357 magnum are right at the top. I have a use for all my calibers though.

Almost two years ago I bought and shot a 9mm for the first time. I was impressed with this little cartridge, pretty darned powerful. My first pistol was a PF9 and it shot well but I got hooked on shooting at the range (again). After 1200 rounds I decided that I should get a full size 9mm so I bought a Sigma 9mm. Shoots very well and lot easier on my hand. I like it.

I joined several gun forums and there I discovered a 40sw. A high pressure round like the 9mm and snappy recoil. I thought hmm... I want one so last April I bought a Sig P250c in 40sw, my first 40sw pistol. I like it.

So there they are, my two fav calibers.

I'm not new to handguns. I used to shoot back in the 80s at the range (same place) and I had 22s, a 25, a 380, a 38 super and a 357. Never had a 38 special nor a 45.
