      if i had to have just one gun
      45acp

      1911's cost too much these days

      i'd get an FNP-45
      held one the other day and loved it
      and being left handed the ambi items on the gun makes it a perfect choice for me

      Glock 23. Very reliable and with the .40 you have accuracy and power. I've always believed that with that "middle" round you keep a little of both, from the 9mm and the .45.

      I like the Smith & Wesson M&P, it is striker fire and easy to use you can get it in 9MM, 40 and 45. I think 9MM is more than enough if the sh** hits the fan, high capacity not a lot of recoil. Buds had them for less than $500.00

      i'd say it will have to be a combination of a shotgun and a 9mm pistol...

      i have a .12 guage beretta right now but i am looking at getting a handier and more compact pistol (probably a glock 34 or a beretta 92FS) and the way i see it...

      and hopefully i never have to use it for defense...

      it all boils down to which i can get my hands first in cases of an emergency...!!

      My choice is a Shotgun but for a handgun it would be a Glock 21sf (45acp)
      13+1 rounds

      We have two pistols for HD. One is a revolver because my wife doesn't like the idea of the slide moving back and forth. She is afraid that it will come off and hit her . . . I know, I know . . . but that's her logic. The other is a semiauto in a caliber that starts with a "4".

      Buck,

      I think you and I are the only ones that are crazy about our PX4 SC's! I absolutely love mine. So much in fact that I just picked up a 92 FS as a Xmas present to myself!

      P.S. I love my Blackhawk holster too! Thanks again!

      Agreed! I would love to pick up a 92 Inox Ghost and a CX4 when ever I can scrape the money up. My PX4sc only leaves my side when I sleep.

      Either an FN FNP9 or a Springfield XDm in 9mm. Why - ammo is cheap for the 9mm and you are likely to shoot it more and become a better shot with it. There are plenty of other good 9's out there but those are my choices because they "fit" me and I shoot well with them. Also, they both have very good triggers out of the box.

      Glock 21 (mine is SF) To me it is the ultimate HD handgun I have TruGlo nightsites and a lasermax guiderod laser and a Xiphos NT rail mount light with strobe. I have it loaded with Hornady +p hollowpoints. This also happens to be my favorite gun I own to shoot and I am deadly accurate with it

      Go to a gun store hold all of the guns recommended here every ten minutes, like the glock, beretta, m&p, xd,ruger....... Make sure you try the different backstraps for the m&p, and you will come home with the right one.
