What are your most and least favorite guns?

This is where we can talk about our guns. I'd particularly like to see reviews and range reports of your guns, especially if it is a model that others may not be familiar with.

I know a lot of people don't like plastic guns, but my favorite handgun is my Taurus 24/7 OSS. The new G2 series improved on a few things, but the decocker safety is stupid. Up for safe, down for decock. That means if you carry cocked and locked like me, that when you draw and drop safety, you'll likely decock in the heat of the moment and end up DA on your first shot. They should've stuck with the up and up solution of the OSS IMHO. My least favorite is my Savage model 64 .22 LR. It is great for accuracy, but whoever decided that a cast mag, with the lower half of the feed ramp as part of the mag was a good idea, should be flogged. 10 round mag that won't perform with more than 7 rounds consistently. I even polished the mag ramp with my Dremel, but the spring rate+the bolt spring gives at least 1 in ten with a bent nose and a jam if you load more than 7.

It's hard to pick only one, but I'll pick this my STI GP6.
It's one that nobody seems to knows about and an Awesome semi-auto.
It's accuracy, ergonomics and pleasantness of shooting is Wonderful~!

I was one of the first in the US to get one. I wanted it for the same reasons STI chose to import it from Slovakia, as their only non STI manufactured pistol, even with their full line of great pistols. It had been winning competition after competition in Europe for accuracy, but STI required Grand Power, the Slovakian maker, to give it the Absolutely Sweetest factory trigger job. It is a great reliable never fail pistol...that has stood up reliably to well over 100,000 firings with no problems.
