My 1911s have me convinced JMB had a prototype of my hand when he designed the grip. I’ve also had good luck with the Ruger 77 RSIs in short action rounds, and due to long familiarity, an M16 is an extension of my body.

SAA, 1911, Win.94, Rem. 870, AR-15 type. The Glock17 points where I look, but that is simply from long experience, and I have to maintain it. The others are just natural. Wish the world was in such a state that I could comfortably go through life with an SAA and a couple of Winchester lever guns.

1911 without a doubt, especially after years of IPSC. I struggle with Glocks, but if given the choice to grab a new pistola, it’d be a Glock no question.

The old bull barrel ruger mk1 and mk2 are for me, also the single six. As far as rifles, my old 700 mountain in 270, have shot shot several running with it, almost like shooting a nice fitting shotgun.


as far as newer guns, the smith m&p series are for me, something about that grip angle.

A 1886 win light 45-70, one gun I really wish I'd not sold! When I pointed it stuff died, also liking the old Bisley the way it points!

My Ruger Standard 22 pistol purchased in 1969 for my new bride still points and hits better for me than any other handgun.

The old Mannlicher-Schoenauer rifles had always looked cumbersome to me in photos and laying on tables at gun shows. The forward placed bolt handle appeared impossible to cycle smoothly. Then, at an estate sale, I actually picked one up. It felt like an extension of my arms and pointed so naturally that I immediately had to buy it. The typical pre WWII high scope mount doesn't even bother me. It is a 1903 stutzen with a Hensoldt 4X scope:

Handguns? Colt SAA.

Long guns? A shotgun with an adjustable comb, properly fitted. Remington's 1100 and 870 fit a lot of people pretty well, though.


Worst fit? AR15. Stock is too damn short. When it came in, teenage girls started winning matches. When I was shooting High Power you had to cant the thing. Between offhand and sitting rapid there was about 4 MOA difference.


Don't blame me. I voted for Trump.

For a pistol it would be the old Remington 51 with a S&W 39 coming in a close second. For a rifle it would be a 1960’s Browning T-Bolt.

Remington Model 700 Classic that I’ve used since 1980, it’s part of me in the woods.

For a deer rifle nothing comes close to a Remington Model 14 or 14 1/2. The ones I used to have were in 35 Remington and 44/40. I believe I could have used them to shoot quail.

Early on, I was in love with having a Govt. 1911. Then I shot one. I've got big Johnny Bench-type hands. I shot a 1911 and it hurt me in my web. I was quite disappointed. What did fit me like a glove was a Ruger P90, and I found it always shot well in my hands.

The other pistol that works well as a natural pointer is my Ruger MK II 10" bull barrel. It took over a decade to find the right grips, but that sucker now feels like it was made for me.

In long guns, I'd have to say Gramps' 12 GA Winchester 1897 is about as natural as they come.
