    What is everybody's favorite pistol here? Doesn't matter what it's for, just name your favorite and why you like it.

    Simple, any flavor of quality 1911. Once you shoot a good one, the reason they're so good is obvious...

    1911. Grew up shooting one as a kid, stayed qual'd with them for most of my Navy career, and love shooting them. The 1911 remains the gold standard for semi-auto handguns. I just can't fit one down the front of my pants and work all day.

    Any quality 1911... But the Colt Combat Commander would have to be my specific favorite.

    I shot one of those S&W 629 Classic in .44 Magnum that belonged to a friend from work. Lots of fun to shoot.

    Well gee, i've only shot maybe a dozen different handguns in my life. I only currently own two with access to another not owned by me. I really enjoyed my AMT .22 lightning target pistol in my youth, but my XD45 has been lots of fun & really fits my hand well. The snubby .38 wasn't meant to be liked, only used & then only when really needed.

    So, XD45 with the 5" barrel would be my choice, currently.

    But in all my years, I've never had an opportunity to actually fire a 1911.
