A few individual firearms encompassing three of the four major mechanical classifications—shotguns, rifles, and pistols—have generated intense interest among Shooter’s Log readers.

For most of my life I have carried what some refer to as big guns. The Chief’s Special is a backup. The Commander .45 is a carry gun.
