There are at least two types of handling. One is how does it instinctually feel in one hand and point for immediate emergency use. The second is more like fondling.
I like to sit in my livingroom and practice with snapcaps. This works well with all revolvers and da autos. I love the feel of all revolvers, single or double, I love them all.
Autos I like the feel of a 1911 with an arched mainspring housing, Walther PP and P38, and Beretta 84 BB.
I also like the Ruger 22 with the original "Lugeresque" gripframe.
