Astra A-100 in .45... still have it. The slide release broke off but it fires just fine. Was my first carry gun in a Galco S.O.B holster.

Smith & Wesson Sigma SW40VE.

Great little pistol, I still have it and it has NEVER failed after thousands and thousands of rounds. I've stepped up in my handgun collection, so she rarely sees any range time nowadays.

My first was a Ruger P89, it was a good gun. I never had one problem out of it.

It was either a Ruger Single Six with 22 and 22 Mag. Cylinder or a Beretta Jaguar 22 Semi Auto. Had them both around the same time and do not remember which was first. Some day I will get another Ruger Single Six with both cylinders. Can not remember what I traded my original one for. But I am sure it was another weapon!

S&W 629 8 3/8 44mag. I kind of jumped in with both feet. Loved that gun even though it was about as pratical as a sword in a phone booth knife fight.

CZ 75b. (top)




Have since added a Glock, XDm, BHP, P226, 1911, SP101...among others. But nothing leaves me looking more competent at the range than my old friend.

Ditto on the second. My dad has given each of his sons (me and 2 brothers) a Ruger Blackhawk .357 mag for our 21st bday...still loving it:



My first purchase was a Springfield XDm 9mm 4.5"...loving it even more.
