What is your favorite gun caliber/Manufacturer to shoot and why?
Hand guns and calibers can be a very personal choice, as they should be in my opinion. You want a pistol that feels good in the hand. I believe this will translate to proper surface area coverage to help with grip as well as increase the shooters ability to accomplish proper trigger control. These two aspects (grip and trigger control) can aid in faster follow-up shots through recoil management. The Glock 17 and the Springfield Armory Xd45 Service Model are at the top of my list. The Glock has proven to be an all around reliable shooter right out of the box. The Springfield Armory Xd45, like the Glock, is designed with with a true caliber in mind. I've described it's shooting characteristic to driving a Cadillac. Smooth, responsive, and predictable. It also feels good in my large hands. But my wife enjoys it as well, and her hands are pretty average in size for a female.
So, what say you? What is your favorite caliber and manufacturer to shoot and why. Maybe even add what guns you want to shoot in the future.
Last but not least always mind your basic gun safety rules:
KEEP YOUR GUN POINTED IN A SAFE DIRECTION.
KEEP YOUR FINGER OFF OF THE TRIGGER UNTIL SIGHTS ARE ON TARGET.
KEEP YOUR GUN UNLOADED UNTIL YOU ARE READY TO USE.
