I prefer a front line with Depth
Nice! I've got an old "102" with a 7" bull barrel I swear by. Best

target shooting pistol ever.

S&W 686+1, but I really like this S&W model 28 Hiway Patrolman too.

I'm fairly sure i'll be the "odd duck" on this thread but MY favorite is my 40+ yr old Essex 1911 build - 45acp of course
WHY? Because its a 1911 & 110% reliable

Beretta. I guess I like millitary type guns. Also appreciate the no-tools takedown. I have also developed a recent interest in the 1911. Never owned or even shot a 45. From everything I've heard, it will be a Springfield. Also, the Ruger Single-Six in 22LR & WMR has grown on me to the point I'll never get rid of it. Feels & looks nice, and I can actually hit with it. (Traditionally, I'm a lousy pistol shot.)

Always been a Colt and Ruger fan. Quite fond of Uberti too.

My sentimental favorite brand is Beretta.
My real world favorite is Glock.

Glock. If the world ends tomorrow and I'm on my own, I have full confidence it will outlast every other gun on the market

For me it's Smith&Wesson I own several of various calibers all are revolvers.
I find them to be very dependable. I carried them on and off duty as a LEO for
most of 32 yrs.
