Sig Sauer, Kimber, Colt, Glock and Beretta. I am trying to collect all the pistols I want on my top 12 list then I am moving on to rifles. I already have the ones I listed so my next purchase when I get the money is a browning 9mm, wilson 45acp, ed brown, les baer, nighthawk. Needless to say it is going to take me a few more years to collect these.

I own two Rugers and I would like to add another to my gun family some day. But I haven't shot enough guns or had enough experience to be able to compare all the different brands.

I have more than one favorite. However, my favorite handgun is a 1927 Sistema 1911 manufactured by DGFM in 1959. They are also sometimes called an Argentine Colt since they were manufactured on Colt equipment with production overseen by Colt.

Gratuitous pics:





Those grips are gone, it currently wears a set of Esmerelda grips.

I forgot to mention that I have Rock Island Commander. I haven't had it long so not much range time yet. Seems to be a nice low cost 1911 so far.

It varies from time to time.

Right now it's an old .44 Deagle, from before they made the .50AE...
