My Hi-Standard nine-shooter and S&W "kit gun" ("Combat Masterpiece," IIRC), double-action .22 revolvers because there's still no better practice sidearm to build good habits.

Target I shot at the same distance with DV's remarkable Hi-Standard model G-E .22 target pistol:
I also brought my one of my Colt .32-20s, which makes a fine loud noise and puts holes in the paper where I aim it -- with the teeny-tiny sights, so let's just say my Standard isn't quite as Hi with it. (See also the scatter of hits around twelve o'clock on the wide image of the target, above.)
All in all, a fun way to pass the mid-day, especially on the covered firing line in on-and-off rain
