In the past I've owned a couple of Colt Single Action Armies, an Italian SAA clone, a Ruger Vaquero and the one I still have an old Smith & Wesson Hand Ejector. I also had a Uberti 1873 lever action chambered in .45 Colt. That gun was just plain fun to shoot. It wasn't to loud, didn't kick but it sure smacked things with authority. Yup sending big, heavy, slow slugs down range is lots of fun.

    Here is an old .45 Colt Ctg. Smith & Wesson (made in 1927) I won't part with.



    And the Uberti and Colt SAA both no longer owned

    I must ask what are you using to get these great pics? Are you using someone elses pics or are you shooting these pics yourself?

    Pelican, I make my living with a camera. The photo above was taken with a Canon 20D with the plastic fantastic Canon 50 f/1.8 lens mounted on it. That one was taken using natural light. The pics of the Uberti 1873 and Colt were taken with a three studio lights and reflectors.

    My favorite handgun round is the .357 Magnum because it is a great general purpose round that can effectively used for both defense and hunting. Also, less expensive .38 rounds can be fired in many .357 Mag. revolvers, making target practice and plinking a lot less expensive.

    My absolute favorite handgun caliber is the 41 magnum.. My uncle introduced me to this caliber in the mid 60's he carried the 41 mag as his duty weapon (retired Deputy Sheriff)

    For CCW and competition: 45acp for two reasons.

    1) They don't make a .46
    2) Because having shooting someone twice is just silly



    For long guns:

    .308 Win. As to why... See number two above.

    Don is right, they don't make .46. But they make .50 for those interested.

    And, if you've ever shot a 50GI, you know why they cost $4500. Utterly refined.

    44 mag for Dons reason no 2. You dont even have to be a good shot with it. If you hit something its going down!

    22 LR for the 4 legged pests. Great all around working caliber, whether it's popping a squirrel out of the pecan tree or downing a trapped hog it always works.

    45 ACP for the two legged ones. Great recoil vs power balance and I love the 1911. It's just about the only full size pistol that fits my lil hands

    Also like RT says ..... 22 is a good cheap plinking caliber.
