I guess I'd have to reply with a question - "Favorite for what purpose?"

For versatility in almost any role - defense, target shooting, house gun, what have you, I'd have to pick a Smith Model 66 with a 4" barrel. Shoots everything from .38 Special wadcutters to hell-for-leather .357 Magnums. Easy to pack. Easy to maintain. Looks good. Feels good.

My pick of the Model 66 litter would be this dash one. Last of the elegant pinned and recessed 66s. Made in the old way in 1978, with hand fitting. I bought this one new in the box and had it treated to a great action job by Nelson Ford. It's one of the last guns I would ever part with.

That was what the sheriff issued 1979 with 110 .357 magnum JHP. Night qualifying was impressive Now the sheriff issues sig’s in .357sig.

Currently it is my Chiefs Special 9mm, CS9. After years of carrying larger heavier guns, the CS9 is a joy to carry.

And it shoots like a much bigger pistol. Very accurate and 100% reliable. Regards 18DAI

My favorite carry gun is a Colt Commander .45acp.
My favorite carry revolver is my 3" Model 13.
However, last year I picked up a 642 that I'm finding on my hip more and more. Its small, light and easy to carry. Even though its not my first choice, I'm becoming quite fond of it.
