    Is there anybody on Glock talk that actully owns (1) gun? C'mon nobody here does that. Thats just dumb.

    I feel its more realistic if a man has only one rifle, one shotgun and one handgun. That makes more sense when talking to gun guys.

    This guy posts stuff like this all the time, increasingly redonkulous.

    it's getting to the point he's damn near posting "Should I eat a double order of scrambled eggs for breakfast???" "Post pics of what you would have for breakfast in stead of a double order of scrambled eggs"


    Seriously c'mon now.

    If you don't like a post then don't respond to it.

    Now to answer the question. HD is close quarters and there is only one answer for any close quarters gun fight. That is a pump shotgun.

    Long action transitional M&P (pre model 10 .38 special) round butted and gun-bubba'd.

    I can point shoot one, and am too darned old and too chintzy to spend thousands building superior skills with another handgun.

    At 56 I still win sucker bets.. ;) I'm good to go.

    Aaaaaaaaand, for the doubtful amongst us, I got to GT with one gun, a 6" barrel Model 19-3 P&R 3T..

    Which is my favorite gun I hardly ever shoot these days, cause I've bought several I shoot better or that are more fun, in several years here.

    But everybody starts somewhere, I disposed of ALL guns for some years during a bitter custody dispute, as legal insurance against claims of misbehavior with same. I ain't sorry, neither, it was cheap at the price to have control over my childrens safety and living conditions.

    Not to mention, lawyers, good ones anyway, ain't cheap. So if you really ONLY had one gun, my heartiest advice is have the one you SHOOT best.

    or you're an idjit.

    It should be the gun that you are most familiar and competent with. Different guns may dictate different tactics. For me that choice used to be a Beretta 1201-FP. Nowadays it is an M1 Carbine due to injuries. I would feel comfortable with any of my revolvers or autoloading pistols or an Ar-15 or a Winchester 94.

    I've had times in my life where a suppressed .22 was my home defense gun.

    There was another time in my life when the only gun I had in my home was a Single Shot TC Contender in .45 Colt.

    Basically I'll make do with what I got for home defense.

    I'd have a tough time choosing between a 12 ga pump action shotgun and a 4" medium frame .357 magnum though.
