    What a tough question! My practical choice would be G19 I guess, best of both worlds. I don't like thinking like this! :crying:

    This is my favorite 9mm right now; I have one and love it! But for practical purposes my "one" would have to be the G19!

    I think I would have to hang onto my Sig p229 40 cal. It's a sweet gun and I shoot it really well.

    What madness, Sir, does torment your mind? How does such a blasphemy invade the waking thought.

    I have wrested with this query as well but it was within a terror of the night. With gasp awakening, the answer revealed.

    Easy. I did this a few months back and kept the Glock. Sold a dozen others to friends (had to raise $ to move across the country).

    Compact for conceal - or extend with G20 mags and extended barrel for full size.
    Light loads for urban carry and hot loads for the woods.
    Converts to shoot either .40 or .357 sig.

    One gun - tons of options depending on your flavor for the day.

    Yikes! What a terrible concept. Ok, I'll play. Out of my large collection, here are the contenders:
    1. HK USP compact .40 that I've had for 13 years. It's had 0 failures of any kind.
    2. Dan Wesson Valor 1911 .45. Accurate, reliable, and likely to go way over 100k with only spring changes required.
    3. Gen 4 Glock 17. Like its big brother G34, I shoot it better in competition than I do any of my other guns. I have a big bag of spare parts, so I expect I could keep it running indefinitely unless there was a slide or lower failure.

    F&*k this. I'm keeping all three :supergrin:

    Handgun? I'd keep my G19, 3rd Gen. Not much hesitation there.

    That's a really tough question I have some nice high dollar guns. Some sigs,colts s&w's but I would probably go with my only glock a g20 with high caps and plus 2 bases that gives me 18rnds of very accurate and very lethal firepower. I am a fairly big guy 6 ft 235 lbs so I can conceal this well. In a s h t f scenario this is a great personal defense cal and will take down any north American game.
