What's Your Favorite Handgun Caliber..?

Post by guzzimike1 »

I recently read an article which stated that Magnum Revolver Shooters were Old Masochists Types..

Well, I guess that I'm an Old Masochist Type, then; because my favorite cartridge to shoot out of a handgun is a .44 magnum .

I think you should specify revolver or semi-auto. For revolver I prefer 357. 9 for semi-auto.

9mm Makarov. I cast, and use 9x19 trimmed down to 9x18 brass, with some W231. Accurate, and at one time an endless supply of ammunition for me.
