    Was wondering what firearm you guys have a liking to. Even if you can't get your hands on one you gotta have a fav.
    Mine personally is the 9x39 Subsonic VSS Vintorez/ AS VAL series.

    For handguns the 1911 and Glock are my two favorites. One is so iconic, and the other is so robust. I can't think of better handguns.
    For rifles nothing beats a good old m4 style. I like the newer MK18 style best.

    There are many firearms that I am quite fond of, some that I own and some that I don't. However, my HK VP9 immediately came to mind. I heard an angelic chorus the first time I held it.

    lol, that's what it was like the first time I got to shoot a 1911. Those old guns are so amazing. For me, I'd say 1911 is my favorite in terms of looks and fun to shoot. For effectiveness, I hate to say it, but you can't beat a Glock...

    Oh, but you can... with an HK VP9!

    That being said, I share your fondness for a good 1911. One day, I'd love to own a Wilson Combat!

    I don't have a favorite rifle - really never shot enough to have a favorite. With pistols, I'm with Max - I love the consistency and usability of the Glocks (let's put the 19 if you want a specific model), and I love the look and feel of a 1911, especially an officer's model - dark matte finish and rosewood grips, please.

    For handguns, it is the CZ P01. I had one, which was dead reliable and accurate, and stupidly sold it so that I could buy an HK VP9. After one range session, I sold the VP9 and bought another P01. The ergos are so good that it sits perfectly in the hand without even trying. It's a fantastic CCW gun, and one that I won't be selling this time around.

    I've often fantasized about a nice, stainless blackhawk. Then there's the mini 14 in .243. Ruger made a few but they were never offered. As a kid, I was in love with the Berret M107-A1. Now, my buddies Savage MSR 10 Hunter in .308 is impressive. My .62 cal Yager style flintlock is a beauty to behold and a joy to smoke out anyone shooting near me with; my near favorite. All that said, I really would be tickled ping with a ruger precision in .308 or the early .243 version.

    oh, yeah, rosewood grips! The only thing I don't like about 1911's is that they hold so few shots, and that's why I'd never take it into combat. Love everything else about it though.
    When I play airsoft I use a KWA 1911 or a Glock 17 (cause there weren't any 19's in stock) and I don't have a problem with my 1911 cause it holds a completely unrealistic amount of ammo (21, the same as my Elite Force Glock 17).

    I just really like the look and feel of a single-stack. Of course, that does mean fewer rounds.

    Ruger Alaskan .454. Can use 45 longs for normal use and .454 Casulls for big, serious threats. Fast Alaskan454andBuck110.jpg deployment and use - just like Wing Chun.

    Yeah, single stack feels slimmer in the hand, and makes it look sleeker, but I don't really mind sacrificing a little looks and sleek feeling for a double stack mag cause it gives me more ammo. That's why I love my airsoft 1911, it holds lots of rounds, but it's a 1911, and it's single stack!

    When it comes to single stack my favorite is the TT-33 or PMm

    Double stack will always beat single in terms of capacity. But in terms of reliability id imagine single is easier for the spring
