    If you could have one gun, one platform, and one caliber, what would it be ?

    I don't have a handgun yet. After Christmas I am going to start shooting and see what I like best. Right now just off reviews, I really like the Springfield XDs.

    I think there is only one answer here man for handguns at least.

    If only for the reason of spare parts and accessories being everywhere should SHTF. I don't know if it would be 9 or 40 but I don't even need to say what brand im talking about.

    taking your line of thought it would HAVE to be a 9mm - lots of ammo around in that cal. A LOT more than 40! almost all armies of the world use 9mm and most police departments

    Back when I had only one gun it was a Remington 870 20 Ga pump shotgun, the youth deer model with 18 inch rifled barrel and real sights. I added a magazine extender so it can hold six 3 inch shells plus one in the chamber. Obviously this was not for concealed carry. But for general purpose home defense it was just about right, IMO. The 20 Ga youth-model decision was a tradeoff to make it more user-friendly for the wife ... just in case. Ammo, parts, and accessories are much more plentiful in 12 Ga.

    The buckmark is a great gun but I have to go with the old settlers of the day and there choice was a shotgun. Basically a shot gun can do almost anything

    I carry a full size SA XDM45 w/ 13+1, but if I have only one, it has to be a Colt 1911. One long gun? M-21 sniper version of the M14.

    870 12 Ga. Great personal protection and you can hunt anything you want with the proper shells

    M-1 Garand in 30-06. Excellent close and long range performance. Won't break when used as a club if you need to butt-stroke.

    As you are aware, this is an Extremely difficult question; but, since you ask, my choice is a Ruger Security Six with a 6" barrel. The gun is solid, dependable, accurate and a joy to shot.

    If Obama and the Wicked Witch of the West get their way, that may be the best any of us can have: a 1911 with a 7 round magazine...registered of course, for convenience at confiscation time.

    Neither GA or TX guys will ever give up our 1911's. The guys to the north have already given up their 2A rights.

    It is a toss up between my Kimber CDP 2 .45acp or my Sig P228 9mm

    Thank you Rusty - as you can see from the wear marks - it's been carried a lot.

    My GP100 has been with me since around 1983. It is one fine weapon, but if I was to have just one instrument, it would be my Benelli M1.

    Pistol: 1911 because I have been shooting it the longest.
    Rifle: 243 bolt gun because you can shoot anything from varmint to white tale with it. (Mine is a Winchester Model 70)

    It would be a .357 Mag, 686 with a 4 or 6" bbl. I could make do with a Model 19.
