Your choice of pistol

Post by Prettybird » 21 Nov 2013, 10:37 am

Laws aside, if you could just stroll into your local gun shop and pick up a pistol of your choice, what's your pick?

I reckon I'd have to have one of these bad boys

The Smith & Wesson Model 460XVR Compensated Hunter.

Seems like a practical choice :D

If you want to scare off the Terminator robot or hunt elephants AND develop a substantial flinch, the first one wins by a mile.
For fun plinking and cheap shooting, hard to go past the Ruger.

I've put THOUSANDS through my 22/45 Ruger (basically the same beast with a different grip section) and they are great. Even won a few club events.

Waiting for it to wear out so I can but another.....................and waiting...................................and waiting.....................

If your pistol needs a muzzle brake, you know you've gone too far ;)

The only reason I list this one is because I can't have it. And we always want what we can't have, :x

Revolvers with the under slung barrel definitely have that little 'something' to them.
