I know this topic has been batted around before, but I've noticed those threads usually turn into long lists of all the guns people own, want to own or dream existed. So here's how I want to work it. 1) The world has gone to Hades in a hand basket. North Korean Nazi Hippie Zombies have engulfed the planet and you only have time to grab ONE gun. 2) For our purposes, you are unable to have a rifle, shotgun, machine gun, musket, flamethower, MRLS system, main battle tank, fighter aircraft with attendant carrier, professional armed forces or ICBMs. YOU CAN ONLY HAVE ONE HANDGUN. 3) You must already own this gun. 4) Once you've made your selection, explain why you have picked the handgun you picked. I'll go first. I'd grab my Glock 17. Why? 1 The G17 holds 17+1 in 9mm. This round is nominally more available and lighter to carry in bulk. More bullets equals more firepower. No caliber wars here - the 9mm will get the job done if I do my part. 2) Can conceal it if I really have to IWB. I also have two OWB holsters as well. 3) I have a spare parts kit for repairs. I also have four mags. 4) The gun is durable, reliable and can solider though lack of maintenance more than most. (Might not be a lot of Hoppes #9 after the mushroom clouds clear up.) How about you all?
