Still looking for a holster for her.

Sick man! Like!

I saw some at the piddly attempt of a gun show out these parts last month. I should have taken a pic. I think the price tag was like $85 and likely home made. I did think about my PAP M92PV in one but I think too long.
With something like that I just like to sling it and carry openly. And with that friggin drum mag?
Seriosuly. Just get one of those nice double hooker slings and be cool.

BTW-
what using those gallon ziploc baggies for?

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

For me:

Revolver: .44 magnum

Semi-Auto: 10mm

..
I concur. .410 slugs were a lot of fun too.
Damnit..... I want my name and 2013 join date back.

357 mag in revolver or 9mm in semi, just because I shoot both exceptionally well. I do fine with other rounds but not near as comfortably as those 2.

You're a putz bud. Like friggin 0.12" or some silly shit. Thirty thousand of them embedded in C4 in a shaped charge like 8" tall and 15 inches across.
Do some more research on Google knows best before you spout some shit you can't be proud of tomorrow.

My current "favorite" is... 7.62x25.

Hoo, boy! That's *fun* in a CZ-52! After shooting boring old .45 and 9mm, I'll haul out the CZ and it's party time. People peek around the lane dividers to see what's making all the commotion.

I've been shooting S&B hollowpoints, 85 grain, 1,647 fps, 511 ft-lb of energy. Note that military hardball .45 ACP is 356 ft-lb. The CZ is bigger and heaver than a 1911, and the 7.62s are noticeably snappier than the .45.

The CZ isn't going to be my new carry gun - if I wanted a full size, single action, single stack monster, I would go for at least .45 Super, if not .460 Rowland. But if someone made tactical tupperware in 7.62x25, I'd definitely give it consideration.

Really hard to pick one. In auto's I really like .45 ACP and 10mm. In revolvers, I have more .44 Mags's than anything, but also like .45 Colt and .41 Mag. I don't think I could pick only one.

Traditional I guess.
.45 ACP, 9mm, .357/.38, .22LR & for CAS, .44-40

Truthfully, what I'm shooting TODAY seems to be on top of the pile, but subject to change tomorrow.

Its sort of like the discussion my wife & I repeatedly have about the 'BEST' BBQ. For me, its usually the plate I just enjoyed.
If you're in Memphis, TN -- go on: pick between Commissary, Central and anyone else you can name.

.45 ACP.

But these days I’ve been leaning towards .40 S&W because of 16 rounds of 180 grain HST in the gun.

.22lr because it's cheap and so easy to shoot. It's fun to just plink with.

I like 9mm, .380, .38, .357Mag & .223. I think that's all I have right now. I have made a concerted effort to keep to as few different calibers as possible.
