    I made fun of the judge mercilessly. Then handle a smith governor and think its awesome and just want one.

    The beretta 21 and 950 guns, too small to have a real purpose but just cool little things.

    What do you like even though you probably shouldn't?

    The Beretta Tomcat .32's

    No real use with all the pocket .380s out there these days, but still always wanted one.

    The governor is a stretched N-frame so it has a good lineage.

    There is a lot not to like about AK-47s when compared to modern assault rifles. But, I like 'em anyway.

    My wife is a "Taurus" fan. So far she has yet to but a failure and just brought #6 home. Last year she brought a 4" 7-shot .357 "Tracker" home. I am a S&W guy and after years of shooting 6-shot revolvers that size an extra round is more annoying than anything, and I HATE ported handguns, the grips might be nice for a lot of folks but aren't quite "right" for me. Despite all that, it seems to not be picky about ammo, it doesn't really "hate" anything I've fed it, it has run 100%.

    I have plenty of other .357s but I find myself taking this Taurus along with me more often than most of the other 4" .357s

    Don't know why you shouldn't like the X frame S&Ws. I think they're fantastic guns, very versatile, love both of mine. Don

    I like pistol caliber carbines, like my Sterling stormtrooper gun...even though I can accept a 5.56 would be superior.
    I like derringers, even though they aren't as practical.
    I like top break revolvers, even though they are not as strong as HE or solid framed guns.

    The sights suck, the safety is less than convenient, and the lack of a bolt hold open ices the cake.

    However, they work, even the cheaply built ones so they are still a good option.

    Sig 238, S&W J-frames...they are too small to fit my hand properly, but they work none the less.

    Of the ones I own I shouldn't like my Keltec PMR-30. It's plastic, ugly and Keltec. But for some reason I love it. It has got to be the caliber.

    Wife liked hers so much I bought her an Inox with trim to replace her blue/black one. Now she has color selection.

    GLOCKS!

    They are plastic, blocky, plain, over hyped, have a unique grip angle, have no thumb or grip safety, people dont go oooh and ahhh when I unbox it at the range, they havent changed much in 25 years and they dont command a $1000 like a Kimber or Sig or HK...and they have no heirloom worthy character like a wood and steel 1911 or revolver.

    I should hate them but I love them!!!
