The S&W M&P 15-22P is a blast to burn ammo through. I know it truly isn't a traditional handgun, even though it is a pistol, but man it is fun!

As for more traditional ones, I really like the Sig P238 SS. One hand, two hands, left, right, whatever...Very cool .380.

As for power, along with accuracy, the SW .44 Mag revolver 3". Once you get used to the blow back, it's pretty neato.

I had to think real hard on this one but I think the one I had the most fun with was my Ruger super blackhawk in .44 mag. I was new to reloading back then and we would load up some 200gr. hollow points with 28gr. of 296 go in the back of the barn and vaporize cinder blocks. We all laughed like crazy and everyone wanted to try it. Recoil hurt like hell but it just made us laugh harder.

Ruger MkII with 10-inch barrel because I couldn't seem to miss anything! It was like a lazer! I was outshooting my friend with a SKS at a target probably 40 yds away. True, SKSs aren't known to be tackdrivers, but I still found it amusing (he found it embarrassing). I could hit better with that thing than any pistol I've shot before or since....

E-Shock rounds are engineered to expend maximum energy into soft targets, turning the density mass into an expanding rotational cone of NyTrilium matrix particles, causing neurological collapse to the central nervous system.- Yeah I can do that.

What is the most fun handgun gun you have ever shot?

My High Standard .22 Sport King and my Desert Eagle 1911g 45acp.

Pretty much all of them, but if I had to choose one it would be a Ruger MK I, II, III...any of them. I've never seen much difference.

Mark III Ruger with a Vol trigger set and Sam bushing. Holy Hair Trigger! It is just endless amounts of fun.
Truth be told, I have about the perfect mix right now and I like them all in very different ways. So honestly no matter what I am shooting, it is just plain fun to shoot.

The most UNpleasant..Hands down T/C in 45-70

Just went to the range recently with a buddy that brought a High Standard in .22 Short that was passed down to him from his dad. I didn't expect to be impressed by it, but it was great...accurate, no recoil, crisp trigger...the most fun gun I've shot in a long time. It's just too bad that .22 Short ammo is so hard to come by these days!

I think the most fun is black powder revolvers. In public. Because you get an audience.
People get a kick out of it, but for me it takes me back two centuries to about the mid to late 1800s.
I feel the history of it.
Second most fun is bolt action rifle. It takes me right back to being a kid with a bolt action .22.
But I think shooting any gun is fun, even if it has a painful kick to it.

I'd have to say my T/C Contender in .30-30 edges out my Ruger .22s a bit. Normally .22LR is my favorite all-around caliber, but that Contender is just a dream to shoot. I really need .22LR and .223 barrels for it as well.

This is all excluding my pin gun that wasn't much fun before I worked on it.

I am the weapon; my gun is a tool. It's regrettable that with some people those descriptors are reversed.

A silenced Ruger Mk II.
A very light and abrupt wooshing sound, then the TING as the bullet hits a can. It was really damned cool.

AMT noise machine

I have a nice AMT Automag II in 22 WMR which is a lot of fun to shoot when it doesn't jam.Since I only shoot it for fun on the range its quirky reliability doesn't matter much.It delivers flash and bang all out of proportion to the claiber-probably because of the unusual chamber design.

Humbly, I submit this

Not horribly exotic, but I get a kick out of shooting my Cimarron Model P.

I enjoy all of them, but this one gives me the most grins.
