I know this topic may not be for everyone, but handguns are just flying 'off the shelves' so to speak with all these stay at home orders. My wife and I are big handgun enthusiasts and Smith and Wesson enthusiasts in particular--we don't have any long guns and I would like to keep this topic about handguns only, although if you have a unique long gun, please tell us about that as well. I am particularly fond of revolvers from a 1956 Model 37 Chiefs Special Airweight to a modern 500 (I have 14 revolvers), but also have quite a few semi-autos (7 in my collection). My wife is a big semi-auto fan (she has 8 of these), but also has a few revolvers (I think she has 3). What is your favorite brand and type?
I like any S&W revolver with the N frame the best. The older ones. 50's 60's 70's

LOVE O/U shotguns. Have Italian and Germans beauties. I also reload my shot shells because I love tinkering and customizing my loads.

For my handguns my main CCW is a Sig P365 or S&W 642. Also have Glocks, Ruger and Springfield Armories.

Odd guns out are my Taurus Judge and Ruger New Vaquero 45 LC single action 😁

I’m not a fan of Tupperware guns. I think Glocks are absolute pieces of shit. Sigs are pretty good.

My carry guns that I rotate through are:
Wilson Combat EDC x9
Wilson Combat CQB Bill Wilson Carry
S&W 1911sc e series
S&W M65 3” in .357 mag

My truck gun:
CZ Scorpion

My “You’re in the wrong house” gun
CMMG Banshee .300 Blackout w/ Suppressor

My Woods gun is a Sig Sauer 1911 Tac Ops in 10mm or my AAC Custom Remington R1 in .460 Rowland

My carry pieces a Charter Arms Undercover model in .38 caliber and a Ruger LCPII. Charter Arms is probably not anyone's favorite but it goes bang when I pull trigger and I'm not worried about it getting scratched or nicked or being submerged if I capsize my canoe, and that has happened. The Ruger is a nice size for carrying in the pocket of a cycling jersey. That is why I purchased it.
My favorite manufacturer, and this is based of sentiment, is S&W. I have four hand me down S&W's, a model 10 in .38 caliber and a model 36 2' barrel chief's special, model 29 .44 caliber, and a model 66 .357. These were my fathers, he carried the model 10 and model 36 on the beat and as a detective during the 50's and 60's. My favorite of all the firearms he passed on to me is a Colt 1911 that he carried through Roi-Namar, Tinian and Saipan.
I love my Charter Bulldog 44 special. They are maligned unfairly in my opinion. The new ones are great and the company has it's shit together now.
