    Easy choice, my S&W Model 28 .357 mag. I've had it and shot it for 25 years; over half of my adult life. It fits my hand, I have confidence in it, shoots better than I can aim. Shoots .38 special plus P like a dream. Seems to prefer lead bullets but shoots semi jacket or jacketed close enough. It handles a wide variety of ammo ... ( I'm well stocked ).

    I agree with your analysis. With the 26, you have a super concealable pistol that is amazingly accurate that will accept the hi-cap mags from the 17 and 19 and also the 33 rounders.

    Smith & Wesson Model 686 4" .357 Magnum.

    Can shoot mild .38Spl or the hottest .357Mag ammo you will likely encounter. Similarly, .38 and .357 are easy to reload without the finicky tapered case of the 9mm. It doesn't require magazines, moon clips, or speedloaders of any kind. It will, in a pinch, take any game in North America if you do your job. No one can kick dirt on the .357 as a man stopping cartridge, and it is easy to conceal and carry all day in the right holster.

    Yes...I carry a Glock of one model or another every day and did as a cop for more than 15 of the 22 years I carried a badge...but if I were limited to one and only one handgun...it would be a Smith 686.

    One gun, forever and for everything... Probably a .44 mag with either a six or eight inch barrel.

    The 686 is definitely a most fine choice.

    My Custom built 1911, chambered in .45 Super. I can hand load it for many different uses.
    Peace is that brief, glorious moment in history, when everybody stands around reloading.

    Assuming I can keep a 022 RF rifle, my choice would be a S&W or Ruger revolver with 3 or 4" barrI have one of both. Load down to .38 or up to .357--add shot shells maybe. One tool is never able to perform all functions--just try and overhaul an engine with pliers.

    I will take my S&W 686 hands down. It's straight up reliable, built like a tank, pleasure to shoot, fantastic pistol whipper, and has caliber flexibility with regards to self defense and hunting.
