    we all have our favorites. what are your favorite handgun calibers to shoot?

    multiple choice, so you are not limited to one choice!

    i am partial to 45ACP, 44 Mag./Spl. 357 Mag. and 22LR.

    i hope to move up to some larger bore calibers in the near future, as well hopefully the 38 Super.

    For fun .357 Magnum by a big margin...
    For serious training 9mm as this is my "real world carry" hand guns are chambered in.

    Pure fun: .22lr.

    9mm is kind of my preferred carry/run and gun/range drill round.

    Run it in full size, compact and sub compact pistols as well as in a carbine. Not too expensive, not too punishing, not too small. Kind if the JEEP or sport utility round for me.

    So many choices, so many good choices. I guess my favorite is .38/.357 out of a 4” barrel. Though I like the rest, they are my favorites.

    Yeah, when I'm not accurizing something, or practicing, it's the 22LR.
    Plinking at cans, and other fun targets.

    .32 S&W Long. Dirt cheap to reload, very mild recoil, tack driver of a target load with wadcutters.

    I'll add .45acp since it wasn't on the poll.

    My .38 Colt Official Police, followed pretty closely by my .45acp 1911 longslide. I too shoot my 9s more because they are my carry guns, but I don't enjoy them as much. Lately I have been shooting and enjoying my .22s more than i used to.

    I used to shoot a fair bit of .44 magnum, 180 and 200 gr bullets max'd out.
    Had a Contender in .35 rem...........that was cool.

    But my arm goes numb now without much impact. Gave up boomers.
    Work beats me up, am older, wimpy and lazy too. Don't really shoot for fun anymore.
    Test for ammo preference and then hunt.

    Don't really practice w my carry rig either.......same one for over 20 yrs. Kinda used to it.

    Might let the middle kid shoot my Commander. She liked the Python.
    Autos kinda freak her out. Her older sister was wicked, even at 12........with my 1911.
    But it's heavy and has a very good trigger.

    The ol lady can't handle over 9mm 115 +P in P35.

    Everyone told me this gun would be no fun to shoot because of its size.... this thing is a blast, today I shot toe to toe against my buddies with their glock 17s and Sig P226s today. Well, except for a lot more magazine changes. I think I have about 300 rounds through it with no problems. Screenshot_20180313-135954.png

    We also blew off a bunch of ammo in our ARs

    Every time I bring the S&W 460 to the range there are big smiles (and swears) all around, so for fun not only for me cause I always let a few guys at it, that would be it 454 is cool to shoot out of it too.
