Which Handgun is the Most FUN?
Handguns have lots of uses - self defense, easy carry, truck guns, plinking, targets, hunting, rambling and more. If you’re like me, you’ve probably shot and maybe owned a few of them over the years.
Beyond self-defense use, though, I keep coming back to the notion that handguns are just plain FUN. They’re fun to handle and shoot. They’re even fun to carry.
Which brings me to my question: <span style="color: #CC0000">Which of the handguns you’ve shot or owned has been the most FUN, and why?</span>
Personally, am torn on that question. On one hand, I have tons of fun with my little Smith & Wesson M422 auto in .22 long rifle. It’s cheap to shoot, carries like a feather and is reasonably accurate up close. Mostly, I carry and shoot it with iron sights, but every now and then I set it up with something like TruGlo's red dot sight. Either way, it's fun.
On the other hand, something bigger can sure tick the fun meter up a notch or six. A bigger auto or revolver can be buckets of fun. Big chunks of wood fly from stumps, tin cans soar to the sky and bunnies tumble like they where hit by a truck.
My favorite big handgun (that’s still reasonably cheap to feed!) is probably a single-action revolver in something like .45 Colt. Inexpensive cowboy rounds can be had almost everywhere and with a relatively mild recoil and those big chunks of lead, such a handgun is almost more fun than should be allowed.
So, what are <span style="color: #FF0000">YOUR</span> thoughts? <span style="color: #CC0000">Of all the handguns that you’ve shot and maybe owned, what's proven to be the most FUN, and why?</span>
