    With many different choices these days for target shooting it's hard to do them all. But everyone seems to have a favorite. Busting clays with a shotgun is fun (can be tough on an old shoulder). Shooting steel with a pistol is a ball (I'm a mediocre pistol shooter but have fun doing it). I'm too old & slow for the run & gun stuff. I leave that for younger & in better shape than me folks.
    Bench rest shooting with a long gun (center fire or rimfire) is my favorite. Shooting a rimfire for score at 50, 100 & 200 yards is a real blast for me. Or a center fire rifle against 2" or smaller target or pingpong ball on a string at 300 yards. Then there's 600 yard bench rest shooting, another super fun challenge. One day I might just give the f-class shooting from prone a try.

    The joy of shooting in this day & time is meeting folks & sharing our enjoyment of our shooting sports. Having a chance to try & letting other folks try our shooting type things is all part of the enjoyment to me.

    I like shooting pistols best. I like steel but silhouette targets and defensive format is my favorite. But I can't think of a shooting sport I wouldn't enjoy if I was physically able to do it, including archery.

    I like thinning the paper plate horde with pistol or rifle, and if SubGunFan is around the smg :D

    The absolute best though is being with like minded folks regardless of what were shooting or shooting at.

    I like all of them. The old blued and wood. Milsurps. I shoot my 22/45 more than anything. Next would be my 45 and it's running a close race with my 22/45.

    Pistol would be my Sum Gy 1911 in .45. Revolver would be 7 5/8" blackhawk .44 mag. Shotgun is my B.C. Miroku 20 gauge double barrel Browning knock off. Long gun would be either my antique Ruger .308 bolt gun or my kid's Savage .17HMR with accutrigger.

    If I'm going out to my place to shoot by myself I'll usually take my built 308, 300 win mag and AR10 to ring the plates we have set up from 100-350, if my kids come along, I'll bring an assortment of 22's, 22 mags maybe a couple AR's and AK's, they enjoy shooting up all dad's ammo and I enjoy watching them do it lol.

    I like shooting handguns the best, with a slight edge to revolvers. I like to occasionally try to hit a target at longer range with a rifle.

    Pulling any trigger is my favorite.

    Like others have said its being with friends and other people with the same interest.
