There is a poll for your favorite handgun brand already - but what is your all time, favorite single gun model?

I shot Tango's Coonan and it's everything it's said to be. On my bucket list but just a little out of my price range.

as I posted, my Coonan is "basically" a 1911 but I've also got Nighthawk, GI, Springfield, STI 1911s - very very good platform (and even a couple of the mini-Sigs in the "shape" of a 1911 (238 & 938))

but

my recently acquired Lugers, in my opinion, are right up there in "niftiness" with 1911s - they've actually been around a bit longer than John Browning's masterpiece

2 different "ideas" - 2 wonderful handgun designs (even if the 1911 has "outlasted" the Luger)

Im not sure if I have a favorite. I like them all equally, but my Ruger Sercurity Six in .357 magnum I could never sell.

I had to think about this un.    :thinker:   :bangheadonwall:   :thinker:   :bangheadonwall:

Im afraid Id have to go with a CZ 75 BD. ( With spring kit of course.) The most accurate 9mm pistol Ive ever owned, GREAT trigger and runs absolutely  flawless.

10 years ago, after 20 years of owning and carrying one,  Id of said a Beretta 92 FS.  Although they also run flawless,  the big fat grip, crappy triggers  and mediocre accuracy now killed it. But It would be # 3 or # 4.

The CZ  PCR is easily my favorite Conceal carry  of all time.
Politicians are like diapers, they should be changed often, and for the same reason.

There are two kinds of people in the world my friend. Those with loaded guns, and those who dig. YOU DIG.  " Blondie".

I have only had one opportunity many years ago to shoot an original WW2 bring-back Luger a co-worker owned. Nifty would be the word I'd use too! It was actually very comfortable in my hand and very enjoyable to shoot.
