    If you could have just one gun?

    If you could have just one gun what would it be? I'm sure this has been asked before but I'm sure we have a lot of new people. I did not want to use a poll, just to many guns to list.

    My choice is the XD 45 compact.

    One handgun? Or one gun in general?

    Considering this is a handgun forum I'll assume handgun and go with a Walther p99qa in .40.

    This one can keep you tossing and turning in your sleep.
    For practical purposes my Ruger Redhawk 44 Mag. Stainless 5 1/2 inch barrel. You could hunt with it and with 44 Special loads maybe a little hot, it would be a good self defense weapon. A bit heavy to be clearing leather real quick, but a definite fight stopper.
    Tough choice Spacedoggy, I reserve the right to change my mind at any time.

    TC Contender with multiple barrels. You can hunt with it then change barrels to practice with. And if you need it for SD one shot from that big bore should be sufficient to solve your problems no matter what size/gender/species you need to make stop bothering you.

    Of course it doesn't work so well against zombies.....

    I'll take my old .357 Python as it can do it all with the 6" barrel. It can drop a hog or white tail and settle a fight in a hurry.

    Because I romanticize everything I'd take a 1973 Colt SAA with 4 3/4inch barrel.

    Nice Python and I like the way you use the fence in your picture. Baldy if you ever want to sell that Python give me a hollar. I already know your answer but I had to try.

    Ruger Security Six in 357 Mag in stainless steel.

    Small enough to carry, large enough to hunt with, stainless to last, and 357 means it could shoot 38s or 357s.

    Smith & Wesson Model 686 stainless steel 7-shot .357 Mag with a 4" barrel. You can load it down or load it up, it goes bang when you pull the trigger, maintenance is simple, and ammo is plentiful. It shoots SA for precise shooting, or DA for social stuff. Plus it's built like a tank and you can use it for a bludgeon if you run out of ammo.

    If I had just 1 handgun.

    I would pick a 4" S&W 686+ in 357 Magnum It could do anything that needs to be done. Fortunately I do not have to limit myself to 1.
