    that was a very tough choice
    i took the survivialist route and would pick a 9mm - it's a compromise
    if the SHTF there should be pleanty of ammo on the dead infiltrating armies as it is standard military round around the world
    for reliabiliy i chose GLOCK but it was tough over the SIG and Berreta 92FS

    forgetting the survivialist route - 45acp - hands down - 1911

    I'll assume you mean one handgun... Para. Great version of the 1911 , very versatile. Light target loads to 45 Super, a ramped barrel Para can handle it. Also, if I only had to buy ammo for one handgun, I wouldn't worry about the cost difference between 45acp and other calibers.

    This is somewhat of a hard choice but I would have to say my P229. It can be carried concealed and is big enough for comfort, stability, and accuracy. The gun is like a tank in function. Nothing can stop it. My main caliber is .357 Sig. I also have the .40 barrel so that would give me some options in ammo. I had it go through the Custom Shop for the Short Reset Trigger and full action/trigger job. Night sights too. It is one very sweet shooting gun.

    If I didn't have a lot of ammo I would probably just pick the good old Glock 17. After 20 years and thousands of rounds I am convinced it will go forever.

    Colt 1911 Government

    Since we are in the Semi-Auto forum I'm going to pick the Colt 1911 Government. I can purchase a .22 lr it for it and a .460 Rowland kit for it to be able to shoot .22 up to .44 mag in power while keeping the .45 acp capabilities. All kits and top ends are made to Colt specs since it is the original and Colt is still the choice for full custom builds due to the quality of the slides, frames and barrels.

    I say Sig Sauer, its heavy, reliable and shoots like a dream. I just wished they were priced like a GLock.

    I am not liking the idea of "just one" gun, but I suppose if I am going to play your silly game... I will choose a Glock-19. Cheaper to shoot, dead reliable, and splits the difference well between a "duty" sized gun and a "concealable" sized gun. One gun! Who ever heard of such a thing! It's like playing golf with just a putter!

    From a pure practical standpoint, my Sig 226 Elite Stainless in 9mm

    My Harrison/Les Bear and Dan Wesson Valor are sentimental favorites.

    Any S&W for its reliability, sturdiness, and accuracy!

    I voted Other. Although I haven't owned several of the brands listed, if I had to have one gun for life, my CZ 85 Combat would be my choice.

    This is a difficult poll. A 9mm is the most practical, and with that, I would have to choose my TZ99. Built like a Sig bred to a Walther, put together by Zastava. Of course I have developed a love for my FEG GKK .45.

    No Beretta M9 on the list so I had to go "Other".
    Love my M9 - very reliable and accurate enough for defense.

    If I could pick only one brand, it would be Smith & Wesson. They offer the most variety, between classic collectables and modern on-duty/off-duty/concealed carry options, pistols and revolvers. If I had to choose just one model, it would be a 4" revolver in .357 magnum - probably a Model 27 or 28.

    i hope that i'm never in the position of choosing just one............

    if i were, most likely a smith 4" model 66 as a jack of all trades, king of nothing. Make it work for duty, ccw, range fun, and hunting. With the 38spl/357 i can cover a lot of ground.

    Ruger gp 100 is high on the list, but smith parts availability is much much better for any home repair jobs, and gunsmiths are plentiful that can work on them.

    It is often quoted...... "rugers are indestructable"......and they dang near are....never seen a gp100 go out of time or fail on the qualification line..............but Murphy's law is still a consideration especially over the long haul. I want parts availability just in case.

    just going on the guns I have shot and owned, I would have to say my Glock 26 that I own or a Glock 19, with a Sig being close second....I had a Sig and plan on getting another, but for me the G26 freakin rocks....its 100% reliable, is insanely easy to strip and clean, it shoots every amo there is with 100% dependability(1000 rounds so far of about 10 different amo brands), is very accurate, and for me fits my hand and shooting style perfectly.....you can get parts and accesories everywhere for short money.....another plus is that after 1000 rounds through my gun, it still looks like brand new, the barrel hardly has a mark on it, whereas my Sigs and S&W showed wear very quickly.....Its easy to carry and shoots like a full sized gun, and I like the way it looks....its perfect

    As president, I will issue everyone a .32 magnum. Especially illegal aliens. But I will ban all .32 magnum ammunition and components. So enjoy your .32 magnums, goofballs.

    The answer to this thread's question would be easier for me if H&K made revolvers.

    I'm liking Glocks so far and as someone else said, the 19 is a great option between CCW and good target-shooting fun.
