    If you could have any handgun there is, regardless of cost, but could choose only one, what would it be and why? From an all-around point. Something that can be easily carried, is accurate, and is reliable?

    Me, I'd probably stand by one of the old WWII-era Colt M1911A1's. Or an H&K Mark 23 Mod 0.

    to be practical, a 1911 45 with a 22 conversion kit. or any defense weapon with a conversion kit. Thank goodness we don't have to have just one.

    Since I live on a small farm in a very low violent crime area, and don't really have a need for concealed carry, I'll stick with my Ruger Super Blackhawk 44 magnum.
    But the second choice would be a bone stock Colt 70 Series Government Model 45.

    Marlin model 60... Holds enough ammo to kill just about anything and ammo is cheap and plentiful. plus they are very accurate;)

    I would like to have one of the high end Wilson Combat 1911s.

    A custom engraved Colt SAA 44WCF would be the bee's knee.

    I'd be really Content with a Ruger SP101, in .357 magnum, w/ a 3" barrel.

    A second choice would be a Ruger GP100, in .357 magnum w/ 3" barrel.
    The SP 101 is next to perfect for me. The GP100 gives an extra round & is easier to shoot but heavier to carry.

    tough question, kind of like asking which is your favorite kid. my favorite is my nickled colt python with a 4in barrel. new in the box unfired. but if push comes to shove and i could only keep one gun it would be either one of my 1911's or my hi-power

    The SP-101 is a fine weapon. I didnt like the grips that it came with so I bought some Hogue grips and what a difference! Feels good in my hand.

    If I had to live with but one hand gun it would be a .22 and in my case , a S&W Model 63. For all around every day use a .22 can't be beat. ( or perhaps my Model 18 ):eek:

    GP 100 4" Stainless. Built like a tank and a good compromise for hunting, woods walking and concealed carry.
