    Posted: 19 April 2018 at 07:27
With all of my son's guns and mine, lots of stuff being shifted around.  Looking thru my colection of pistols, I thought I'd leave 3 out for something to shoot.

The 3 I picked as favorites were:

Smith & Wesson  Model 39 9mm single/double action waltun gribs, aluminum frame.
Ruger Single action 357  4 5/8s barrel.
Smith & Wesson model 17 K-22, double action 22 LR on a 38 weight frame.


Interesting, I bought all these new over 50 years ago.  good things don't change.

What are your three favorites.

Bear, I too have a K-17 as well as a Ruger Blackhawk, but in 45 Colt/ACP.  My third is a 1911 that I built for the first time 35 years ago.  It's been through a couple of variations since, but the frame and guts are still the same.  788

STI 1911 Nitro 10
Beretta 92F
Rossi 971 comp 4" .357

The big DE is a hoot to shoot for sure but I no longer shoot it well and it's heavy and bulky. My boy still loves it though and it's at the top of his list.
...oh yeah! thats gonna hurt!

My favorite to shoot is my K-22 model 17 S&W. It makes me look like a better shooter than I really am. 

Next I would have to pick my 1911. Its just a classic. 

My third pick would be my model 19 S&W. It's a K frame .357 with a 4 inch barrel. In my opinion it's as close to the perfect revolver as was ever made.

I have always considered myself to be quite the bullshitter, But ocasionally it is nice to sit back and listen to a true professional......So, Carry on.

Your question was "favorite 3 handguns".
I"d think a CCW gun while carried most will not necessarily be anyone's favorite gun.
I don't think your picks are your daily carry pieces.

I was referring to bear's comment. My carry gun(s) are not my favorite handguns. 
I remember your CZ 75 or maybe it was Jim's we saw one time.
