This is like picking a lifetime ammo...........A'int happening!
Could you explain to us why we are to be limited to one gun? it can't be price, because you have not set a ceiling on price. So, why not have 2-3 guns for say, $300-$400 each, instead of say, one gun that costs $1500? If it is going to be because you are limited by law to just one gun, I suggest that you get out of that very repressive area, while you still can do so! If it is because you are smuggling a gun into a repressive country, about the only thing you dare have is a suppressed .22lr, of a size and weight that can be concealed well and drawn swiftly. You won't be able to practice enough with anything else, and you need real skill to make a handgun worth much. if it;s not going to be worth much, it is not worth the extreme risk that comes with having a gun in a repressive state.
large, heavy pistols don't work in pockets, and the "hand on gun, still in pocket" draw is by far the fastest ccw draw. That speed can make all the difference in the world, guys. very rarely do you actually have to fire, much less hit an attacker, if you get your gun out and "on" him, soon enough for him to notice it and stop his attack. Nobody wants to be shot, not even with a mere .22lr.
It's already pretty "lightweight" a discussion, don't you think? :-)
I selected 'other'.
Even though I recently purchased an SR40, I prefer my decock only equipped FNP-9 as a full-size carry pistol.
I also switch to carrying a PF9 in torpid weather. Mine has proven to be reliable, but is no fun to shoot for extended periods even with SV ammo. IMHO.
However, my favorite range pistol is a PT99. It's a bit heavy, but is surprisingly accurate.
So this was a very difficult poll for me to respond to. :smt017:smt102
Glock. A seriously butt-ugly gun. Can't stand to look at them. However, I love their reliability and durability. Duty carry is a G17, concealed carry is a G26.
After some thought it would be a compact double stack 1911 in .40 S&W other than Para.
Glock 17, either a 2nd or 3rd generation.
I figure a 6 inch Smith & Wesson .357 in stainless. Easy to shoot well, and easy to use to teach others. Dependable, accurate, powerful enough to hunt with. You can shot different gun games with it. You can join ICORE (International Confederation of Revolver enthusists) and compete with action pistol games. It can also use 38 rounds in many target duty flavors. Probably will never need a part or additional magazines. That being said, since I can have more than one handgun, a collection of various flavors of 1911's and Beretta handguns are nice to have also.
It's the finest .38 Special revolver ever made,,,
I never feel under-gunned when I have it,,,
Because I hit the target with this pistol.
SIG P226 is the most reliable pistol I've owned. Very accurate too.
One brand for life???????
Pick the one that will never fail you...
OH THATS GLOCK!!!! (Sig and HK are good choices too)
Since you didn't put Beretta as a choice, your poll is meaningless. I won't put Beretta in "other".
You know jakeleinen your so right, My glocks have never fail me not one time. It's funny how so many have copy cat their pistol. And how funny it is that glock come out with a easy way to make a pistol work so good. So easy to open and work on. The first one I picked up,Was my g3-27.And I never seen a pistol open up so easy then a glock. Hell I can do it with one hand. In 10 minutes you can have a glock all layout on a table.Just to easy work on,And that is nice.
But their is no one that can say, The ones that did their home work and made a masterpieces. Glock did it,And no one can ever take that from them. For looks my Colts 1911 45cal,Have the look over glock all day long. But glock did not make there pistol to look like angels.The made them to be on top in war of life.A glock will never let anyone down.
Love your pistol,She will love you back.:smt1099
Well, this one was not easy! I had four strong candidates, but the one making the cut is the Sig Pro SP2022 German manufactured.
I have been brandishing my new HK USP alot lately, and my friends think that I don't like my glock as much now... But if someone invaded my home, I'd reach for the glock first (i keep it unloaded and a loaded clip not to far away) no saftey's, no decockers, no buttons that get in the way, ready to go soon as I put in the clip and rack the slide.... Cause when a bullet goes in the glock, 99.9% it always comes out man... No second strike necessary lol
But whatever a person has as their "one gun" is better then none, which is what most people have...
S&W Model 18 Combat Masterpiece.
I voted for Glock because my Glock is my old buddy and I'm comfortable with it. My SIG is a close second, though. I just don't have as much time with it yet. It's an interesting discussion; I don't feel like I just need one gun, which, obviously, is why I have more than one.:)
Colt .45, 1911
I would be using one of my Colt Gunsite Pistols with one of my Colt 22lr conversion kits. Between the two slides it will cover most everything I need a handgun for.
Also I don't know of any guns that can be kept running as long as a all carbon steel frame/slide 1911. The Marine Corps estimates some of their 1911's have over half a million rounds through the frame and slides.
