    One Gun

    If you could only have one gun and one gun only for the rest of your life. What gun company would it be from, and add what model if you want.

    I'm super-happy with my P229 SAS Gen 2. I would not complain if I was forced to have it as my only gun.

    I voted other because if I could have only one gun it would be an 870. You can do alot more with the shotgun.

    If you narrowed it down to just handgun, then it would be a Sig or S&W.

    I think one of the choices should be 1911s in general, as there are so many deserving brands manufacturers tha are not included... and many just plain love the platform.

    ...but I said Sig as well! ...And if it could only be one I would say a 226 Blackwater Tactical in .357sig... I've never shot one, but man that looks like a mean combat pistol

    I voted Glock, granted I'm a tad biased because its the only gun I own at this point, but I've shot others. In any case, Glocks are simple and reliable....if it was all I could have I don't think I'd complain.

    It would be a really hard choice but I lean real heavy towards 1911's. As long as it was a good one, brand would be secondary.

    If I was to pick a 1911 for my "one gun" it would have to be a Para Ord. The ramped bbl helps the a lot. More than one might think. If I couldn't have that I'd have a Sig Sauer.

    Taurus. Own a 9mm and a .40. Both are great shooters, never had an issue with either one.

    I voted other for my CZ P-01, but then I thought about it some more and although I wouldn't mind only having the P-01 for life, I may one day want or have a reason for something capable of delivering a bullet with greater force as well as something that may be easier to maintain over a lifetime so I changed my mind.

    For a one gun only for life deal I would choose a .357 mag. revolver, probably a S&W 686 with a 4" barrel as I believe that length would provide good balance between handling, shooting, and carrying. I could have the option to load up with either 38/357 and have a wider range of ammo to choose from.

    I don't know much about revolvers, I have spent some time at the range with a S&W 686 rental and I think with enough practice, I can learn to shoot it well.

    Sorry for throwing off your poll numbers, minus one for "other" and add one to S&W.

    Kimber Pro CDP II with Crimson Trace Grips in .45 acp. - my Sig Sauer second.





    But I'm not liking having only 1 gun

    The way I read the post was one brand. My vote goes S&W. I personally love the M&P. Not to mention the make great revolvers, nice 1911. They even have a a few nice rifles and shotguns. Could have one of each and be ready for anything.

    I'm not sure I'd take my Sig P229 over my PC952 9mm S&W. Nope, if only one is allowed, I'd go with the custom built most expensive model I own; the S&W 952.

    1911

    [SIZE="3"]Several years ago I made a decision to have only 1 caliber handgun for packing. I was doing some "Gate" guard duty so I opted for the 1911. I also bought a Marlin "Camp" Gun in 45 ACP. I uses the same clips as the handguns and extends my range by a good 50 yds. I now have no trouble remembering where my ammo & clips are at.

    I'm pretty new here, but I love it already. A forum where the users know their handguns! Another poll with the SIG's leading the pack. Man i love this place! You guys friggin ROCK!

    Ok so the one I'd take if forced with the decision to take only 1. It would have to be my SIG P229 Equinox. It's pretty, and dog gone tack driver. (for my style of shooting) I've never had a failure with it or any of my other SIG's for that matter. NOT 1! And I reload! Thats pretty darn good IMO, with several thousand rounds down each one of them. Well, maybe I'm just one heck of a reloader. HeHe Now thats for another thread.
