I have been fortunate in that my dad taught me the secret to success, and I learned it... "go to work every day you can and try your best and opportunity will find you". As a result of that wisdom and my following the sage advice, I have been able to accumulate a few firearms in my adult life...1911, S&W revolver and M&P, Glock, Berretta, Ruger, XDM etc.... so if I HAD to pick my favorite, it would be difficult to say the least, but I do have favorites. My favorite handgun...one the I don't read a lot about actually...is my Browning 9mm Hi Power...sweet gun! What is your favorite...and you only get one! And since we're not talking about family, you can have a favorite!
