    My SIG P226, Glock 17, and Ruger MK II, are the three I shoot more than anything. Also, I just recently got a SIG P238, and I've been having a blast with it so far.

    I guess I like my G22, followed by my Sigpro, 329PD and SRH 480. Just depends on my mood.

    Mark 23 45 for thieves, rapers, muggers, and Republicans

    Blackhawk .44 for bear and angry moose

    I'm still looking for a good .22 for plinking and taking small game.

    I just can't pass this thread by without adding my two cents, it made me think about it for and answer. The three I pick turn out to be the ones I shot and carried the most. My S&W M-29 with the 5" barrel. My S&W M-17 in straight .22LR 6"barrel (wish it was a 5" barrel also) and last but not least is my newest S&W 340 PD 2" in .357mag. This is the one that leaves the house with me when ever I put on my pants to leave the house. It just seems to love the front pocket of my pants, and cries as I leave the house without it. Sure is a personnel thing for sure.


    I didn't think I had that many handguns, but jeez that really leaves a whole bunch out, here all these years I forgot I had this many, time to start a selling spree, but I do hate to sell any of them.

    Default All Glock all the time

    I have a set of Glocks. All are .45 ACP so I only have to worry about one type of ammo. I just select the right one for the right amount of clothing. Sometimes you need something a bit more concealable.

    Top to bottom: Glock 21 (13+1), Glock 30 (10+1), Glock 36 (6+1).

    i just thought about the idea behind the thread was someone made a comment about how many handguns do your really need in your life..that when i bought up the single fact that the Alaska has a diff set of rules when it comes to the carrying and useing of a handgun in the woods and city ..

    Kimber Stainless II 1911 45 ACP for the city

    Taurus Model 44, 44 Mag for the woods

    Sadly, those are my only two handguns so far. But hey, you gotta start somewhere...

    Hmmm... my Glock 20 (10mm) for city/town and some excursions into mild to moderate wilderness. My Stainless Redhawk 5.5" .44mag when in heavy bear areas or when I'm really out in the sticks and it's a toss up between my bobbed .44spcl Bulldog (which I need to upgrade to a Smith & Wesson) for throwing in a jacket pocket to go to the store or my blued Single Six .22LR with 5in barrel for plinking and pest control.

    A 22 lr, either a MKII or single six.

    Custom Springfield/Caspian 1911 in 45ACP (for teabaggers)

    Custom 5-shot Blackhawk 45 Colt or Freedom Arms 454.

    Glocks make good dust collectors and punchlines for jokes and I have a Kimber to use for a door-stop if they count. I would have sold the Kimber but I think the lemon laws would get me into trouble.

    Might want to try a vacuum cleaner to collect dust. It will do a much better job.

    So, let's hear one of your infamous Glock jokes... I don't think I've ever heard a Glock joke before, so this should be good!

    Well I have a ways to go in order to get there but my ideal 3 would be as follows:

    Ruger MKIII .22

    Kimber .45 1911

    S&W 460V

    But yeah I'm 0 for 3 on those. But in the words of Wayne (in Wayne's World) when he's dreaming about the guitar in the guitar store window...."It will be miine, oh yes it will be mine"

    Only have 2 at the moment.

    Ruger Blackhawk in 41 magnum

    Ruger Blackhawk in 45 Colt.

    Are others really needed if these 2 can't accomplish the job?

    The comment was a joke, no offense meant. Glocksters seem a little touchy. Here are a couple:

    A ventriloquist was performing at the 1911 Lounge. He kept telling jokes about how dumb Glock shooters were until one Glockster in the audience couldn't take it any more.
    "Hey! Lay off the Glock jokes," he yelled. " Glock shooters are just as smart as 1911 shooters."
    "Gee whiz," answered the ventriloquist, "I'm just trying to entertain the crowd."
    "I'm not talking to you," replied the Glock shooter. "I'm talking to that funny looking guy on your lap."


    What gun has three safeties that are all disabled as soon as you pull the trigger?

    Glock....a gun....and a grenade!

    Now don't get offended, i was just poking fun.
    BTW, I carry a G19 everyday at work, though I admit it's the issued gun and have no choice.
