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.)

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.
