At the moment a S&W 460 XVR with Leopold scope. That is until I can sell this huge SOB.
Then it's a Kimber Ultra Carry stainless 9mm.

Depends. Sometimes it's a Redhawk 41 mag, sometimes a security-six. Before I sold it a 357, sometime a Walther TPH 22, sometimes a Contender. I really used to like my H&K P7 M8 squeeze-cocker 9mm and an old original Colt Service Ace 22. I guess I'm just fickle. They all were my favorite at the time I got them, even the Desert Eagle 357 mag

I have a Walther TPH but have never fired it. They have gotten expensive.

How can anyone have A favorite handgun. My favorite is a Glock 19, and of course it's a 9mm. But I have a Ruger lcp 380 that I carry like a pocket knife.

I like the high power Brownings in 9mm better than any others I have or ever tried. In a wheel gun Smith & Wesson Model 15-4 K-Frame .38 Special although Colts are super nice. For plinking I like the Ruger mark 2 in .22 cal. For conceal carry I like the Kel-tec P3at .380. For hunting I like the Ruger Redhawk or Blackhawk in .44 magnum, very accurate.

Blew up? Dang, I have one of those strapped on my bicycle. It was the magnum I guess that blew up? Was the barrel plugged?

It was LR. Cylinder misaligned with the barrel. Nobody hurt though.
