    I know I’m late but my favorite handgun is my CZ 75B SA. It’s one of the most comfortable handguns I’ve ever shot or owned. I feel the same way about my husband’s CZ 82 and his CZ SP01. I don’t carry the CZ but I do carry the Ruger LCR; it’s my BACK OFF JACK option! 😛

  • Heather says: May 26, 2013 at 3:06 pm

    My favorite hand gun to take to the range, carry or go outside in my back yard and shoot would be my all time favorite HK 9MM P2000SP. That gun is like my baby..

  • Jennifer Wirtjes - Perritt says: May 26, 2013 at 7:21 am

    It’s a toss between my XDM 9 mm and my Glock 27!

  • Carol keyes says: May 24, 2013 at 11:40 pm

    Love my Glock 26 but looking forward to getting my new Taurus Raging Judge next week!

    My wife and I usually end up arm arm wrestling to see who gets to shoot the S&W M&P .40 first. She usually wins! LOL

  • Laura Lee says: May 24, 2013 at 2:58 pm

    Old school cool! S&W Model 60 with adjustable sights and 3″ full lugged barrel. Looks like a 686 got washed and thrown in the dryer.

  • Lori Winstead says: May 24, 2013 at 2:57 pm

    I LOVE taking my Ruger 10-22 to shoot

  • Stephanie says: May 24, 2013 at 2:51 pm

    My favorite has to be my Walther PK380. A fun little gun. 🙂

  • Randi Whitmer says: May 24, 2013 at 2:46 pm

    My favorite gun to take to the range is my brand new Sig Sauer P238!!!! I grew up around shotguns, so I’m trying to practice and get used to pistols. My husband want to get our ccw before the end of the year!!!!!

  • Dayna says: May 24, 2013 at 2:45 pm

    My Baby Glock 27! 🙂

  • Babs Koch says: May 24, 2013 at 2:38 pm

    I love shooting my Ruger LC 380 and Sig p238. I have a feeling when I buy the Sig p938 it will be my favorite. Or maybe the Beretta Pico. So maybe fun guns, not enough money or ammo. :).

  • April Poulter says: May 24, 2013 at 1:57 pm

    I am lucky enough to have my range in my own back yard. My favorite gun to shoot is my Remington 597, next would be my new Hi-Point C9 . Occasionally we bring out the bigger guns but I prefer the smaller ones to plink with.

  • ROBERT SCHUTTE says: May 24, 2013 at 1:56 pm

    MY LC9, AND MY DAUTHERS LC9. WE SHOOT TOGETHER. SHE A GOOD SHOOT TOO

  • victoria says: May 24, 2013 at 1:49 pm

    My favorite range gun is my trusty Glock 17. It received a bit of a makeover and now I think it is the coolest thing since sliced bread.

  • Neil says: May 24, 2013 at 1:22 pm

  • Cyndi says: May 24, 2013 at 1:14 pm

    My favorite is my M&P compact 9mm but usually when I go to the range I shoot a Glock 17 because I’m practicing for a match!

  • Robert miller says: May 24, 2013 at 1:13 pm

    Entering for my wife Sarah. Her favorite gun is the one i bought her for mothers day it is a Glock 23 . 40cal but also bought a 9mm conversion so she could become comfortable shooting multiple cabinets. I love my wife and i want her to be able to defend herself so she is also going for her ccw/ltc 🙂

  • Laura Springer says: May 24, 2013 at 1:08 pm

    Smith & Wesson M&P 9mm … hoping to have a new fave (M&P Shield in .40) soon!

  • Sarah Fischer says: May 24, 2013 at 1:02 pm

    My favorite range gun? Hmm, tough to choose, going to go with my Dan Wesson VBob 1911 in .45!

  • Robbin says: May 24, 2013 at 1:00 pm

    I just love my S&W 40 Pro Series that my Sweetie bought me as a surprise! I can fire hundreds of rounds downrange and it doesn’t make my hand tired and it’s very responsive to what I do. When my shot is bad, I know exactly what to fix and it reacts perfectly! It’s my third Smith & Wesson firearm and I love it!

  • Sol says: May 24, 2013 at 12:58 pm

  • linda spahr says: May 21, 2013 at 9:00 am

    My favorite gun to bring is the Taurus Judge (shoots .45 & .410). LOVE it. It is incredibly accurate, and powerful. I used it for my CCW class, and even the instructor was impressed! (1. That I was using it, 2. That I had to & could shoot it one handed, and 3. He wanted to try it!) I bought it for my husband for a wedding present, and it is both of our favorite gun! Of course, I need something smaller to actually carry for my CCW. (;

  • Christine says: May 21, 2013 at 8:37 am

    My only handgun: S&W .38 Special model 642

  • Courtney says: May 21, 2013 at 8:18 am

  • jen prion says: May 20, 2013 at 7:26 pm

    s&w m&p .40 compact

  • Heather Mark says: May 20, 2013 at 7:21 pm

    My favorite gun to take to the range is the Springfield XDM 9MM, although my Sig Sauer P238 is a very close second! The XDM is just so smooth and ergonomically, especially for a small shooter like myself, it fits the hand really well. Love it. The P238 is a great concealed carry weapon, though, and is pretty sweet to shoot, particularly for such a small piece. And just for fun, the FN Five-seveN is always a blast (no pun intended)!

  • Heather B. says: May 20, 2013 at 7:20 pm

    My Colt Diamondback is my favorite handgun to take to the range.

  • Tia says: May 20, 2013 at 7:17 pm

    A few months ago I dropped $1200 on a .40 Springfield EMP. I was a little hesitant because of the price but now I have no regrets! The size is perfect for a woman, not too heavy, very little recoil, and easy to grip in comparison to the XD ( which I also love but women with small hands may understand).

  • Bethany says: May 20, 2013 at 7:17 pm

    Mine is the .45cal GLOCK 36. I love taking it out to the range with the hubby. We both enjoy shooting it and it feels very comfortable for both of us….which was a MUST for me! He works nights and I really wanted something that I was comfortable with and could actually use.

  • Kristen says: May 20, 2013 at 7:13 pm

    XDM 9

  • Jean West says: May 20, 2013 at 7:12 pm

    I would have to say that my Rugar 380 that is my edc is my favorite. Practice makes perfect!

  • Colleen says: May 20, 2013 at 7:09 pm

    My favorite is a beretta 92fs in stainless! Love the quality and the shot is right on. Thanks for the chance!

  • Gina says: May 20, 2013 at 7:07 pm

    Would love to win the give-away. I received a Bersa Thunder .380 from my boyfriend for Christmas. It fits my hands perfectly and I can’t get enough of target shooting with it.

  • Kimberly says: May 20, 2013 at 7:07 pm

    I recently got a Sig p238 to carry, black engraved with pink pearl grips- love shooting her at the range! However, I just broke out my .22 magnum rifle and had the best time shooting with my brother… felt like kids again!

  • Kim Miller says: May 20, 2013 at 7:05 pm

    My glock 23

  • Barbara says: May 20, 2013 at 7:01 pm

    S&W M&P 9mm shield is my gun of choice.

  • stevie says: May 20, 2013 at 7:01 pm

    My favorite is my S&W M&P 9mm JG edition! I love it!

  • Gregory Newman says: May 20, 2013 at 6:22 pm

    My Smith & Wesson M&P 40 cal. Love the feel & the way it handles.

  • Gary R says: May 20, 2013 at 5:10 pm

    Hoping to win for my wife, she enjoys the Browning BuckMark .22 that was her mother’s day present from me and our daughter last year.

  • Shelly Ray says: May 20, 2013 at 2:48 pm

    It used to be my husbands Colt Python 357. But he won’t let me take it out of the safe anymore. It stays in a sock now:(

  • SKozero says: May 20, 2013 at 2:46 pm

    Mine favorite gun to take to the range is my Ruger SR9. I love going to the range regardless of what gun I am shooting.

  • Cathie says: May 20, 2013 at 2:38 pm

    My Walther PK.380. Love it!!!

  • Annette says: May 20, 2013 at 2:28 pm

    My favorite firearm to take to the range is my Springfield XD 9mm. I was just able to secure 500 more rounds of ammo, so now I can go shooting without depleting my stock!

  • Jeff Blythe says: May 20, 2013 at 1:12 pm

    I look funny in heels, but I’d wear a pair to win the book!!! My favorite is the Glock Model 22 – .40S&W!! I wonder if I can shoot in heels….? Jeff KA4WYC

  • April says: May 20, 2013 at 1:10 pm

    I would have to say my glock 19. Before that it was my pk.380.

  • Carlynn says: May 20, 2013 at 12:45 pm

    I really love my Ruger SP101 revolver. If I were to pick an auto it would have to be my Springfield XDS .45. I wasnt sure I could shoot a .45 but found it to not be as bad as I thought it was going to be 🙂

  • Loma Gibson says: May 20, 2013 at 12:34 pm

    I love my Glock 17 — so much I have 2! I love shooting the IDPA – I am not the best at it — but it’s awesome practice!!!
    Thanks for the opportunity to enter!

  • Pat Turner says: May 20, 2013 at 12:31 pm

    I LOVE my little Mossburg 20 guage. There’s barely any recoil. My one wish is to have a laser dot for it so I can be a better shot when firing from the waist!

  • Shelley B says: May 20, 2013 at 12:27 pm

    My favorite all around is my Glock 19!

  • Ivy says: May 20, 2013 at 12:20 pm

    Smith & Wesson M&P 9mm

  • Katie D says: May 20, 2013 at 12:13 pm

    My favorite gun to take out shooting is my Kahr CW9. Small, light, low recoil, easy for to use. Great small carry, personal defense gun! (Also love to shoot my Dad’s HK in 40 cal, a late 90’s model, It’s what I learned on and is still my fav)

  • Michelle says: May 20, 2013 at 12:00 pm

    Glock 19 9mm

  • Andi Matthes says: May 20, 2013 at 11:56 am

    S&W 9mm M&P!

  • Endrea says: May 20, 2013 at 11:49 am

    I love my Springfield XD 40 cal…

  • Jeannett L Eiden says: May 20, 2013 at 11:45 am

    I would have to say my favorite is my 45! 🙂

  • Terri Johnson says: May 20, 2013 at 11:41 am

    S&W M&P 9mm!!!!!

  • Janice Ridgeway says: May 20, 2013 at 11:37 am

    Tough one to answer, Springfield XDm 9, S&W Shield or M&P 9c

  • Kyle says: May 20, 2013 at 11:36 am

    Posting this for my wife…she carries (and loves) her laser-equipped Taurus Slim in 9mm.

  • terry brasher says: May 20, 2013 at 11:31 am

    S&W Shield 9mm… no wait, Gock 19… no wait, the Shield…

  • Lauren says: May 20, 2013 at 11:30 am

    My favorite gun to take to the range is my STI 2011. I call it an STI but it is more like a “frankin-gun” that was put together by a local shooter before I purchased it. I love how nicely the grip fits in my hand and I love how flat it shoots.

    I also love the character it has. I have banged, rusted, scratched, and dented almost every piece on it and wouldn’t dream of trading it in for a nicer looking gun.

  • Jenna Allen says: May 20, 2013 at 11:20 am

    I’ve purchased a Beretta Px4 Storm, and I absolutely love it. Being a concealed pregnant mama with a toddler, it surely comes handy. Incredible control while handling and shooting it, light weight and easy to carry in my purse. Just love how It has an reversible magazine release and an ambidextrous safety, (which can also de-cock the hammer safely when a round is in the chamber) double and single action . As a first time pistol purchased, I felt complete comfortable handling, and shooting it.

  • Douglas says: May 20, 2013 at 11:19 am

    Hoping to win for my lady. She really enjoys taking the Ruger Super Blackhawk .44mag with a 7.5″ barrel to the range. She will be using that gun for our firearm deer season this year.
