    Guys need your inputs here... tnx in advance!

    If you will own just 1(ONE) pistol, and consider it as your all around gun... for range use, home defense and everyday conceal carry gun. what would it be?

    The Glock 30. Awesome firepower in a pint sized package. :)

    Glock 19.

    Although practically speaking, it wouldn't be wise to have just one gun, especially if you use it for home defense. What if it needs to be repaired? What if, God forbid, you actually have to use it to defend your home. Afterwards, the police will likely confiscate it for some time while details of your case are being investigated. What'll you use for defense in this case if ever the associates of the BGs decide to make a second try on your house?

    My "Pony" Gold Cup...;a :cool: Any one in the family can easily use it, reliability, point of aim, stableness, ease of grip....PERFECT;)
  6. Either a Ruger GP100 or SW 686 in 357 magnum with a 4-6" barrel, with 6 speedloaders loaded with either Black Talons or Golden Sabers.

    That's 42 rounds of the most potent mankiller cartridges around... Can take down a bear, too, or aswang, buwaya, daga, pusa, askal, etc... ;)

    Ditto on the Ruger GP-100 or S&W 686. But another useful gun to have is my 3.5 inch S&W Model 51 .22 magnum backed up with 2 speedloaders of Remingtong HPs and a wallet full of loose rounds. Can take down any small game animals with it. Can't eat the meat of any small animal shot by anything bigger. To date this has been my most useful gun and I have taken lots of bulig(catfish, different from hito) with it since I bought it from a fellow BOG.;f

    Well, let's see, the criteria are range use, home defense, and concealed carry: For me, it has to be a .45, high-cap, easy to conceal, reliable, and user-friendly (few controls to mess with) if I had to hand the gun to a family member in an emergency:

    Glock 30.;)

    in what division can i compete using a G30?


    i guess you can ask some police assistance naman when that case happens. And ofcourse if you were to own just 1 pistol it should be one of the best... should be durable, reliable and low in maintenance to lessen your worry on damages and repairs. but you have a point sir, one should have atleast 2 guns. so if your not home yet theres a gun for a family member. but what if your budget is tight and you can only afford 1 pistol, that's my point. that's why i'm asking what is the best all around pistol.

    IPSC Standard or Production, assuming walang ports ang G30 mo. But you'd be at a disadvantage on both. The former is a SA pistol event where the 2011 is king. As for the latter, you'd have longer splits due to your caliber. And for both, you'd be at a disadvantage on mag capacity.

    You can probably compete in IDPA, Capt. Tuliao informed us two weeks ago that Armscor is pushing for accreditation just like IPSC

    awitan mo na lang yung glock 17 ni 9mx para meron pang-down siya ng open pistol! hahaha!

    seriously, the glock 17 meets all your requirements but the glock is one of the harder pistols to master, specially for newbies.

    the 1911/2011 pistol is no doubt the best pistol design.
