We all had our favorites. I had many favorites, but the one I counted on was my issued Gen 2 Glock 22 w/ mandatory 8lb trigger. I imagine you combat vets had one you trusted as well. I had to think about it writing this, but I fired that bad boy FOUR separate times as TV says "in the line of duty" (not counting range time) and it NEVER had a problem. I literally fired thousands of rounds at the range and I trusted that gun with my life. It never let me down. If that weapon could tell a story, it would be great! It was a bummer I couldn't buy it when they upgraded my glock. I was sad the day I was issued a Gen 3. Excited for the light option working k9's, but sad a dependable part of me was going bye bye. I remember thinking that the rookie who got issued it probably bitched about the scuff marks from all the various incidents. :guns:

My Smith & Wesson 2.5" 66 no dash. It would be the last one to go. And yes I trust my life to it.

A "bread & butter" 4" S&W M10 pencil barreled "round butt" that was issued in a day all LEO's carried round guns.
I carried an issue heavy barrel Model 10 for a while, which was replaced around '91 with the Model 65, which was almost identical to the Model 10 but in stainless.

In the mid-60's the army gave me a 25-year-old BAR to rock and roll. That was about the most fun I ever had with a gun, burning thousands of army issued .30-06 rounds.

Today, almost 50 years later, I am now enthralled with my 2 week old Ruger SR1911; just like a new baby, it is getting all of my attention.

Two weeks from Wednesday I am scheduled for my mandatory department qualifications, and I will qualify with the SR1911 so I can carry it on duty.

The best gun I have ever had, and will never get rid of, is a Browning BAR rifle in .270 caliber. I have killed many whitetails with it, and since my first hunt with it, I have never missed with it. It's the sweetest shooting and most beautiful firearm I have.

Although I feel that they are clunky, heavy and rattle a bit in the slide, I have owned two Ruger P-95's that never failed. They are built like tanks. Being derivatives of the P-85 which was a contender for official military 9mm sidearm back in the 80's I think the whole Ruger P-series are designed for severe battle conditions (and all the P-series 9mm's take the same mags).

I've had several Mossberg pump shotguns, I think they are the most rugged and reliable pumps.

For sheer fun and the beauty of the thing, a Ruger New Vaquero Convertible in SS. .45LC/.45ACP caliber with 5.5' barrel.

For firepower as well as accuracy and reliability, My Taurus PT845.

Can't pick one, and list would be long. Carry a baby Glock 45 acp now, carried a mod 29 Smith for years. Was always a revolver guy and still love Smiths and Rugers older guns. K frames and single actions in rimfires are fun guns. Centerfires to put bambi in the freezer. Even killed a deer with my baby Glock, dumb thing should have known better than walk up to a gun totin redneck. I guess favorite is one on me at the time ask. Tonight being at home, all of them.LOL

A lot have come and gone but I'll have to be down to my last dollar before I sell my Marlin 336CS in 30-30. Have had that one for the longest...love to take it out of it's case and wipe it down with Rem Oil and see it shine.

Still my fave...nothing to do with law enforcement or war which I've never been involved in, but it's an old Remington M722 in .257 Roberts. Killed my first deer at age 11 with that gun in 1963. It's never failed me, shoots 1/2 MOA. I haven't used it in a while, but still own it.

Hard to decide between my Ruger Blackhawk .357 mag, or my grandfather's old M1 .30 cal carbine. Both sweet shooting guns and just too hard to pick just one. I'll pass the carbine on when that time comes but I'll be burried with the .357

My Winchester 190, I've owned it 37 years and it still is my favorite. I tore it apart last year and gave a good scrubbing and rebuilt it. Good for another 40.
