    Springfield XD-M Compact, 9mm with Federal HST 124 grain ammo.

    I can carry it with the small flush magazine and have the 19 round magazines ready to go if need be.

    I'd prefer a rifle or shotgun, but the shotgun limits capacity and they both limit carry.

    If we're talking end of the world, I'd opt for my AR15 or even my Ruger 10/22.

    CCO sized 1911. A 4 or 4 1/4 inch barrel with officer size frame.

    That's if a squad of armed guards doesn't count.

    Easy question. I really only have one SD weapon, or at least of my two SD weapons only one is thought of in a SHTF situation, and here's a picture of it:

    That was a really long way of saying 'A Glock 23' without saying, 'A Glock 23'.

    Does it have to be one we currently own?
    I'll take an F/A-18 and flying lessons, please.

    S&W Sigma 40VE now but am negotiating for a Glock 23. Would love to have a Shield to go along with them if I could afford it. I'd carry any of them & use them for home defense.

    Well personally I have always considered .45 to be close to overkill for personal defense but if I was restricted to only having one it would have to be a 45.

    Ruger SR40c, ten rounds of Hornady Critical Defense and an extra fifteen round magazine most of the time. When it is really warm weather i carry a Ruger LC9, eight rounds with two extra seven round magazines.

    Probably a G22...

    Im a big fan of the .22LR for bear defense.
    Just shoot the guy next to you in the knee and run like heck.
