    It can be your EC or fav gun at the range.

    Mine are my beretta 92 compact and XDS 45
    XDS is: very narrow for EC in iwb holster. Power of 45ACP. 8 rd. duel safeties
    Accurate. Comfortable to shoot and hold. Good color-black
    Beretta is. A beauty, Inox with custom zebra wood grips. Hi capacity 14 rd up to 30 rd. proven reliability. Easily customizable-grips, sites, trigger, hammer. Dedicated safety lever/decocker. Very accurate and low recoil. Still concealable.

    One thing about the 92 is the mag release. I have to re grip the pistol to press the button. That's solved though with an ext mag release

    Rock Island GI Model 1911A1 .45ACP - I love this gun. Ever since I was a kid I wanted a 1911 and now I have one. It eats any ammo I feed it, I've never had a malfunction of any kind. It's accurate, even with the GI style fixed sights, and it feels good in my hand. And the bang when I pull the trigger is deep and loud.

    SIG-Sauer SP2022 9mm - Fits my hand well, good texture on the grips, accurate, and I like the fifteen round capacity - especially now that the spring in the magazine's loosened up a bit - and it's exceedingly easy to field strip. Also, it's the first firearm I bought for myself ever, so it has that significance. Aesthetically, it's the opposite of the 1911's clean lines - it's lumpy, bumpy, and a little bit ugly - which has an odd appeal. Never thought I'd like a gun with a polymer frame 'till the first time I picked up an SP2022.

    One goes bang and the other is not in my possession yet.

    I guess I like my sar arms B6P because the grip fits my small hands better than a glock and the 4.75" barrel does a great job of taming what little recoil a 9 has. Also the inset slide allows me to ride my thumbs really high on the frame, hardly take any grip force to keep the recoil down. To top it off she's more accurate than I am with a pistol.

    Kimber Custom II - love the ergonomics of this one. Points naturally and effortlessly, and is deadly accurate.
    I recently picked up a Kahr MK9 in stainless. I love shooting this gun too and it conceals very well, but the grip is a bit too short for my hand. I think I might sell or trade for a full sized K9 or K40. I really like the Kahr trigger though, long but smooooth.
