    One HANDGUN…for LIFE:

    That would be my HK 45c with several 10 & 8 round mags, I'm set!

    Easy to conceal, nice SD/HD capabilities, and also feasible for hunting. Recoil is nil, thus making it a pleasure to shoot for YEARS!

    If I could only have one, I'd have to pass my beloved revolvers and keep my Glock 23. I don't carry it because I have my wheel guns but I could learn to adjust if I was down to one.

    Only one would have to be my Dan Wesson 15-2 .357 mag with my 6" barrel plus the extra barrels, 2", 4" and 8". It would perfect use the 2" or 4" to carry and the 6" or 8" for hunting; it would be all anyone would need.

    OK, just one handgun, huh? My current inventory contains only two that would qualify---my SIG P210-2 9mm with its factory .22lr conversion unit---if I still live here in the big city---and if I moved to somewhere like Alaska, my Freedom Arms high-grade .454 Casull revolver 4 3/4" with its factory fitted extra cylinders---.45 Colt and .45 ACP---this would cover most biggie animals and people if needed. Hope it never happens!

    A G-19 as I already have a set of Twins. One has a FO front Sight and the other has a JP Red Dot Sight. Both rock and roll. I also have more than 30 mags for them including "Happy Mags" for travel (33 Round biggies) loaded with Cor-Bon 115 Gr. DPX ammo.

    Personally, I am thinking that I would probably keep my Walther P22, since it is light weight and easy to carry around, ammo is cheap and easy to find, it is generally reliable amongst .22 pistols, it looks cool to me, is fairly accurate, and it has many accessories (barrels extensions, laser sights, suppressors, accessory rails, spare magazines).

    Am really curious to hear your thoughts.
    .357 Magnum Revolver with a 5" tube.

    While harder to hide the ballistics of the round would make it applicable for self defense, hunting, and range usage.

    If I had to select one, and it had to be an autoloading platform then I'd go with the Colt Delta Elite. The 10mm round has amazing ballistics if loaded properly.
