Aside from my 22LRs, it's my favorite range pistol.

It uses all ammo well, even the Tula steel.

No FTFs, or FTEs.

It's simply a great shooter.
Thanks I guess I need to go test one and then buy it

I just got my first handgun a couple weeks ago: Glock 17. It feels great, shoots great, eats anything, reliable, rugged, light, and a great price ($425 new LEO blue label with GSSF coupon).

1972, it was a Colt-Sauer 32 auto. The first time I shot it, the knurled cap on the back of the slide bit into the web of my hand, hanging there by the meat. I still have a scar to this day. I still remember my buddys begging me to shoot it. "Sure, here you go, give it a try".

Way back when Colt 1917 .45 ACP revolvers were cheap I bought one. I had a pal in the Nat'l Guard who kept me supplied with free ammo.

9mm Makarov

I still have my Mak9. Still love it. Shoot it every time I'm at the range.

Great thread by the way.

I enjoy my stainless S&W 645 a lot.

I really appreciate the features in common with the 92FS,

given the caliber.
