My Smith and Wesson 442. Its not ideal for every handgun situation, but its the one I can carry 24/7.

OWB, ankle, or pocket it will be there. Remington 870P fills my HD role so the jframe for CCW is perfectly adequate.

I am not sure, all of my guns are sentimental all of them where birthday presents one my grandfather was supposed to give to me for my 18th birthday(we were going to shoot the gun for the first time on my birthday, as well as the first time going shooting with him), but died 1 month and 5 days before he could and . My dad gave it to me instead.



So I guess for self defense I would pick my German Sig P226 and for a safe queen I would pick my grand fathers gun.

Difficult decision, but probably S&W 28-2 would be the one to stay.

Probably my G17. It's not my fanciest or my favorite, but it is the most useful.

That's a loaded question

I think I would have to go with the Mini Draco. Handgun size but rifle caliber! Easily concealed and PLENTY of firepower to dispatch the Mexican invasion.

Of all the guns that I own it would be the CZ75B with a slight edge over the 1911. The fact that the mags carry a larger number of rounds and the wife would have an easier time shooting the CZ would make it the better choice for my situation. Hope I never have to choose just one.

The one I can CCW for all occasions - either a .38 snubbie, or maybe a .44 spl snubbie.

Most likely a 4in .357 of either K or L frame flavor. It would be a tough choice between my 586 and my 19. The 586 is easier to shoot with the added weight, the 19 is much more comfortable to carry due to its lower bulk.

Sig P229R two-step.

I have 3-caliber conversions for it and one more is a barrel change away.

My second choice would be my Remington 870P as it was the very first gun I ever owned.
