If I could only have one handgun, it would probably be my Sig P229 Equinox... 40S&W.  I guess that makes it my favorite.

I think you need one of each.   I like them all and have owned and shot almost all.  There's nothing, however, like the feel of a 4" Nickel Python!

I also make grips for the 1911 style pistols out of exotic woods, and sometimes with Ivory inlays ( time allowing )

1911 fan here.
I've got both a 4" and a 5" in Kimber CDP II, they are nice lightweight 45's.
I also had a 4" built using a Caspian frame and slide, Ed Brown barrel, VZ grips, can't remember all the manufactures parts used; suffice it to say they were top shelf. Had it Ceracoated and tweaked around with it until it bested my Kimber's and now it's my winter carry piece.
Carry a Kel-Tec .380 during hot weather

This is the only handgun I own;


It’s amazing what a cheep ($5.00) set of wood grips will do for a guns look!

Last year I was trying to sell an old 870 express 20 ga and a guy contacted me and asked if I wanted to trade for a pistol. He told me it was a 1911 chambered in 45 acp. anyways long story short I made the trade and ended up with a Remington Rand US military, and a check of the serial number shows that it was 1 of 1000 issued to the Sprinfield Armory January 1945. it is in 95% condition and shoots like a brand new one. it is by far my favorite!!!

My favorite revolver, and, by far, my favorite handgun overall: Freedom Arms model 83 Premier Grade:



[My recently-retired engineer/scientist father tried to politely change the subject when I explained to him on the phone about a year ago that, unlike any other revolver I had ever held, my then-new Model 83 Premier Grade F.A. in .454 Casull had zero play in the cylinder-none. He obviously didn't believe me, but did not want to argue about it, so he started casually talking about other things. When he came to visit a few months later, he sat on the couch for almost an hour in silence looking it over in amazment and almost disbelief. It truly is a work of art and engineering. It's the closest firearm to a Swiss watch I have ever shot or even held. After firing a couple of hundred full-bore 454 loads through it, there is still zero play in the cylinder--nada.]

Favorite full-sized auto: Glock G20

Favorite compact auto: Sig 232

Favorite really compact auto: Kel-Tec 380 (cheap but is barely bigger than a set of keys [and flatter]; has a 2.7" barrel; has gone boom everytime I have pulled the trigger over the last 8 years; won't hit the side of a barn out past 15 yds, but it's a close-in convenience gun).

S & W model 686 .357 4".  Most accurate pistol I've shot.  Next, S & W model 36 .38 2" snubbie.  It's my shooter -accurate as he** to 15 yards - don't even try to hit anything at 25 yards with it - better to throw rocks!  Also like my Beretta Cougar 9mm.  Gotta remember the Browning Buckmark .22 - cheap to shoot and dead accurate.  Excellent to practice with for a few hundred rounds.
