    So, you can only have one handgun in your collection (I know, total blasphemy) and can only use that one gun for edc, etc. What do you pick and why?

    Me? I think I would stick with my Glock 26. An all-around great gun and easy to conceal with good firepower.

    Would have to be a G23, for it's versatility (.40, .357 SIG and 9mm) with the conversion barrels and magazines.

    Yeah, I thought about a 19 but then I realized that I can use 19 mags in the 26.

    if i was regulated on capacity, id make sure it was a .45 or 10mm. i think 2 for 1 9mm is ok too.

    G30 is concealable, powerful, and ammunition is available.

    G19. Most size efficient (for 15 rounds), reliable, and supported gun on the planet.

    Considering having only one sidearm gives me a headache, but I would likely wind up keeping my Gen III G-19.

    Of guns I currently have- SA TRP. Anyone of my choosing- Wilson combat CQB. Either way its a 5" all steel 1911 45ACP with all the trimmings if I could only have one pistol to do everything I do with a pistol.

    Smith 329PD HIVIZ. Legal to hunt with, light to carry, fun to shoot. Or else a G17, or a 1911.

    G30 is my choice. The G19 is a very close second choice.

    I have to go with my G19. It is the best balance of all of them.

    I have a grip that fits my hands, 15 magazine capacity, Several 33 round happy sticks, and one of the most common calibers. Plus, if the SHTF and I have to mobilize on foot, I can carry twice the number of rounds as I could a 45 for the same weight.
