Ok, we've all talked about our first purchase of a handgun. Some real diversity there for sure.

Now, what is the sweetest shooting pistol you've ever owned?

Mine would be.....the same weapon. Seriously, the Browning Hi Power is still the sweetest shooting pistol I have ever owned. Reliable, points naturally, crisp and light trigger, and more accurate off the bench rest and in my hands than any other pistol I own (except my Ruger Mk II Target barrel).

I have to say it is my Glock 19. I have gone full circle on my daily carry. About 25 years ago, a G19 was my first Glock. I have owned quite a few, and currently have 4 different Glocks, but about 6 months ago, I bought a used G19 and it has become my daily carry piece. I was very pleased when I shot it for the first time, and made one ragged hole at about 5 yds, after having not fired a G19 in about 20 years. It is one very sweet shooting gun, and always utterly reliable.

Ok, I'll admit it - I am not a revolver guy. Is that Python?
Yes. 1970 model. I have the original box, grips and receipt.

I was with my Father when he bought it, it was the first gun I ever shot.

I won my first trophy with it 3 years after he passed away.

I must admit, the sweetest shooter I have owned is a .22 cal. Beretta Neos, 6" barrel. As far as larger bore, a Colt Mk IV, Series 70, 1911 in 45acp is the sweetest of all the non-wheelies.

my STI Steelmaster. no recoil, hair trigger, accurate...but, that's kinda cheating since it's a race gun. as for mainstream production guns, i gotta go with my sig p220 targetmaster in .45. it's just so comfortable and accurate, it really is just a pleasure to shoot. shame it's a single stack.

For accuracy and low recoil, my CZ-75B SA is the best of all my pistols. For the ability to rapid fire, my Glock 23 is the best. For some reason my finger seems to find and handle the trigger reset on the Glock trigger better than any other trigger I've tried.

Best shooting HK P7M8/PSP, HK Mark 23, HK UPS .45 Tactical, and FN 5.7 USG.

Nest triggers, accuracy, and recoil management. And the Mark 23 and Tactical are very nice with suppressor.

This is going to sound crazy, but after ironing out a thing or two on each, my favorite/sweetest shooters are my Zastava M57 Tokarev and my Star Model B-Super.

The Stars are nice heavy guns built like tanks. I want one in 10mm, and one in .45.

Colt woodsman match target. Still have it.
never heard of them til you posted that. looks interesting, and like something that could beat out the Mark II's for that type of gun.

I don't think it's any more accurate than the Rutgers but the the fit and feel is better for me. The sights on the woodsman come back with each shot and some people didn't like that.

Tough call. I really love my Taurus PT-92SS. After a ******* trigger job (light stone work on the sear), it is fantastic. The old Beretta design, machinery, and craftsmen have still got it. My Springfield XD .45 Tactical is a freaking tack driver. It shoots a lot better than me. Honestly, I'll take either one under pretty much any circumstance.

Sweetest

Sweetest-shooting centerfire pistol for the range (too big and thick for ideal carry): late 1980's Taurus PT 92.

Sweetest-shooting pistol, period: my Browning Buckmark 5" slabside bbl.
