Semiautos: 5" 1911 and the CZ-75

Overall: S&W K and N Frames, given the right stocks. Ruger Six Series is a close second.

I knew I liked you guys...

I love how the CZ-75 and the Smith & Wesson K-frames just feel right to so many people. It's almost unnerving...

@Jad0110, I think you might be right- my old Security Six that I was a fool and sold was right up there in contention.

I know it's a cheapie, but my PA-63 fits my hand like nothing else. And it shows when I shoot it!

Probably this one:



It's a three-screw Blackhawk, ex-.357 Magnum now a .44 Special.

But then, there are others..........

Such as this one:



This .357 has been with me for fifty-five years!

Browning Buckmark URX is a fun range gun. Also, my grandfather's S&W Chiefs Special that he carried as his backup gun for years on the force.

Any 1911.

And, oddly, the P229. It just feels right. Can't say that about other Sigs I've owned.

Yes to of all the above, but a real natural point of aim gun is a Mauser HSC.

A Kahr K series feels awesome in my hand.
A K or N frame Smith is magical...

1911s just feel right to me. I especially like the feel and balance of my Colt Commander.

#1 for fondling: standard model EAA Witnesses (never owned a proper CZ75. Some day...). Nicknamed "the twins" - a .45 and a 10mm. The Hunter is a bit too noseheavy. Still get it out to admire from time to time though. They're also my most natural shooters. They just "fit" me.

#2 Sig P238

The Speed Six would be higher on the list if I carried it but it's usually put away and not available for fondling. I really like my compact 1911 but it doesn't get the loving attention that the Witnesses do.

Ditto

The K38 Masterpiece just feels right, it was called the Masterpiece for good reason.
