Most Shootable Pistol You Own
So what is the most shootable pistol you own? Meaning, what firearms you always shoot well with. While I have a few pistol compared to the vast vaults of some of you I find some I shoot well and others I can't hit a dinner plate with. I think a lot of that has to do with some of the grip sizes and feel of the firearms rather than the craftsmanship of the firearm. A Glock 43 I bought a few years ago I am lucky to hit an 8" plate while I can drill it all day long with my G19. Beretta's I have found them a joy to shoot, almost effortlessly and the CZ 75 and HK's newest generation fit my hand like a glove. My favorite guns to shoot are still all steel pistols and revolvers.

I agree ergonomics is important. One of my most shootable handguns is my Swiss P210.

Sig P-229 and then P-239. I think I shoot the 229 better because I have had it much longer and have shot it a lot more.

My Remington 1911 R1 Enhanced, without question.

S&W CS9. Accurate out of all proportion to its size and the one gun I can shoot from the hip and keep all the hits in the 9 ring at 7 yards. Every time. Great little pistol. Regards 18DAI

I've always done my best shooting with my Beretta 92FS.

Probably my CZ75 SP-01. You really have to go out of your way to shoot one poorly.

Smith and Wesson Model 52 with the extended Bomar Rib

6" Coly Python with the optional Eliason sights

5" Smith and Wesson Model 845

6" SIG P226 X-6s. I prefer the Black and White but they both shoot great

All of these are one ragged hole guns.

The indoor range that I shoot at is limited to 25 feet on their large range where the public usually shoots and 10 yards on their other side, so most groups look pretty good at those short ranges, but these perform equally well at the longer outdoor ranges

For accuracy I would have to say my Les Baer wadcutter with an Ulta dot, followed closely by a Colt NMGC.

Another vote for Beretta 92. It's like shooting a .22

CZ 75 IPSC - The trigger pull (or lack thereof) was great for my shaking hands and tendency to jerk the trigger or flinch. After that, P226 Elite stainless and, for short point shooting, CZ-75BD.

The pistol I consistently shoot the best is my Beretta 92 Elite LTT. For a long time it was my HK USP 9mm Expert but the Beretta has now taken over.
