My collection is pretty small - I got started late and have only been at this about a year now. My Glock 26 carry is my favorite pistol, but I've got to agree with Gpowell93 and go with my shotgun, an 870.

Here is a pic of my favorite(s), but it soon may change since I just bit the bullet for an AR-15. I get it next week!

I love the sound of my 870 police when you chuck in a round. Very convincing and satisfying sound that says, Don't.....with me!

I ordered the Stag Arms .223, left handed, 16" barrel.

Nice! Mine was bought in the day when you couln't have threads on the end of the barrel. They thought you'd go and put a flash hider on there or something. Still trying to figure a way to remodel mine. Darn it.

I too have a Bushmaster.... And I also prefer my AK. It seems more fun to shoot. The AR sure is more accurate though.

My favorite carry is a Ruger LCR 38. Very lightweight and recoil not bad. Very accurate.

Provided your barrel is chromoly and not fully chromed, the tip can be sawed off and re-threaded pretty cheaply. Most gunsmiths can do this quickly if you choose to leave it to a professional.

I've got the LCR in .357. I think the LCR .38 is aluminum and polymer framed to bring the weight down; the LCR .357 is steel and polymer, thus heavier. I agree on the recoil - with .38spl, it's easily manageable, and even with .357, it's easy to control. The Hogue grip puts a thick gel pad between you and the frame. Accuracy, on the other hand... it's a snub-nosed revolver, and "hammerless" DAO at that. It's accurate enough, but if you actually need to use the sights, it's the wrong gun for the job. That said, I recently replaced the front ramp with a fiber optic dot. Haven't had a chance to shoot with the new sight, but it definitely points faster.

Yep! Can't beat the pants-wetting factor. The only thing scarier than hearing that "shuck-shuck" is the muzzle blast itself. :-)

Personally, I love the versatility of a 12ga, in that you can use the same gun to bag anything from dove to elk. A full load of buckshot in an 870 is roughly equivalent to a brick of pistol ammunition, making it an exceptionally great teaching aid for instructing bad guys on the fine art of collapsing in a bloody heap on the floor.
