I presume that we are Talking about any Firearm, not just Handguns.
Well then my Favorite is My M14 S/A Clone set up as a Navy Seal DMR.
It uses a Bula Forged M14 Receiver, 7.62X51 Criterion Barrel, and a Vortex 4-16X50 PST Scope in a Sage Navy Seal Gray Chassis. I assembled the entire Rig and it gets a lot of attention at the Local Range. Edit SORRY it did say handguns

"Which begs the question: what handgun in your arsenal is the most comfortable, accurate and fun to shoot at the range?"

Yeah... the OP was rather ambiguous.

Well then, I'll come out to play too.

In keeping with the original question, I'll opine that with over 25 handguns in the safe from hunting revolvers, sidearms for big game hunting, EDC's, PD and squirrel pistols and target guns, my favorite range gun is my relatively new Kimber Aegis Elite Custom 9mm with the Vortex 6MOA optic.



With the 9mm chambering and the all-steel construction with the optic, recoil is almost nonexistent, target acquisition is almost instantaneous, so fast double-taps are almost a given. It's just wicked accurate and fun on steel.

Sorry for Rusty, but my personal range time is indeed fun. A few of my steel combat silhouettes (1/2 scale) set up next to my steel plate swinger, a few hundred 9mm's all loaded into 10-round WC mags, and it's off to the races.....



The last time I fired a shot wearing a uniform was a very long time ago. Now it's fun! (Or at least it will be again once the Mothership returns my slide...... )

In these parts, that looks like a place we'd just call "outdoors," and that's where the free folk shoot. I like all your steel. More targets, more fun.

If I'm reading between the lines correctly in Rusty's earlier #2 post, I'm guessing he's referring to something like standing in front of a piece of paper a few yards away and just pulling the trigger... over and over and over again. Something like we see in Cousinmark's range report threads. A big hole in a piece of paper 10yds away... chewing through hundreds of rounds.

Shooting steel and other "stuff" is a ton of fun.

You are so right there, Phil. That big ragged hole in paper does little to excite me either. When I shoot, I want reaction!

After a bunch of the 7 - 10 yard stuff, it's revealing as to one's skill when you move out to 25 yards or a bit beyond. We're talkin' serious fun here, but it can also be quite humbling.

...Hey, I'll be the first to admit it's way more fun to enjoy a variety of targets at an outdoor "gallery". Trust me, if I could be dinging steel plates I'd be dinging them :-) I have small windows of time when I can get to my local indoor range. Sometimes you've got to make the most of what you have and be happy with that, beats the alternative. Primarily I'm working at developing trigger control and other basics so for now trying to get 100 rounds all inside the 10 ring is the game? I'm no where near as advanced as many of you so even though there's not a gong at 75 yards cleaning out the bullseye at 7 makes me smile :-)

If I was asked this question last month I would have said my SS 5” Raptor 45 but after my last 2 range trips I have say my Springfield SS Range Officer 5” 9mm is my favorite range gun. Shooting 9mm out of a 40oz 1911 is just fun. What’s not to like about an $800 1911 that’s extremely accurate, comfortable in your hand and 100% reliable.

I wish I had a place I could set up steel targets because this gun would perfect for this type of shooting.

Ask me this question in 2 months and I may have a different answer.
