Most fun would be a Beretta 21a Bobcat 22 LR. Most accurate would be a Colt Official Police 38 Special that is no longer with me because as my first revolver I thought all revolvers shot that good.

Ruger security six. Just the right amount of kick. If I didn't want kick I'd shoot a 22 for plinking, but too light a gun and it's not fun anymore. Just my 2 cents.

Buckmark Silhouette. Fun is shooting soda cans at 100 yards.

I can't decide.
I LOVED shooting both the Smith and Wesson model 17 in .22 and the Beretta Storm in 9mm.
The Model 17 was the very first firearm I shot and the Storm was the next and the first center fire. Those two hold a special place because I got to bond with my brother shooting those.

Depends on your particular brand of fun. A magnum revolver, especially one with enough weight to tame the recoil can be a lot of fun.

If you're not into blast and flash, a full-sized, steel-framed 9mm is a lot of fun. You can shoot all day without fatiguing and yet the ammo still has enough oomph to make reactive targets or steel move around satifyingly.

As far as just flat out fun,... my brothers Thompson "Tommy Gun", .45acp pistol, with the 50 round drum. Pretty much takes both hands to hold it, but you can expend a box of ammo rather quick.

As for actual precision type shooting,.... my T/C contender with the 22 K Hornet barrel. Very little reocil and will reach out 100 yards real easy.

Yep my Buckmark is a blast too. And my Glock model 22 gen 4. So so accurate. It's a toss up between the two.

For me, it was a gun that i rented at my local range. It was a FN FNX 45 Tactical with a Gemtech suppressor. It was a blast to shoot, and very accurate. I had a great time shooting it.

As for one that I own, I think my CZ 75B Compact is the most fun. I just love shooting it.

Like a few of the others stated, I too thought of my Buckmark Camper when I read the title of the post. I can hit anything I can see with it. I've put a LOT of ammo through that thing and I never tire of shooting it.

My most "fun" handgun would have to be my Tec 9. It was worthless as far as accuracy goes, but it sure was fun dumping 31 rounds down range in two to three seconds.

Jet 22

My brother in law has a jet 22 handgun. You could see huge flames shooting out from the barrel in broad daylight!

The most fun I had was with a pepperbox-style .22Short my Dad had back in the late 60s. Called "Four Aces" it was only about 21/2-3" long, had 4 barrels and a rotating firing pin. On a really good day, with the stars in perfect alignment, I could hit soup cans at 10 feet. It was just fun! Dad's gone and my daughter has the gun, but we both like shooting it and remembering.

The 460XVR against slightly expired produce and containers of food is amazing! This is a watermelon at maybe 30ft. You can see the watermelon vapor trail clear through the rear of the explosion.

My Take^^^

Though My .357 is fun, my cousins 44 magnum is a blast, epecially with Watermellons, Cantelope, Water jugs with food coloring.

I Also love shooting my 5906. Just great accurate shooting.

AR "pistol" with holosight. It was especially fun since I was shooting somone else's ammo! With the short barrel, and buffer tube long enough to get a rifle-like grip on the gun, I felt like I was getting away with something.

Ruger mark II cause it has a great trigger and it's .22LR. Not as fun now though since I haven't seen a bulk pack of .22 in nearly a year.
