    I'd like to say GP100 but it's a little big for CC. So, Sig P220R.

    I'd agree with Cold Shot...that or the GP100. .357 can do most jobs and the ruger build makes it available as a hammer too.

    Love my old 4-inch Smith & Wesson Model 10 but probably would go for a 4-inch N-Frame Smith & Wesson Model 27 or Model 28 .357 Magnum as the ultimate do-it-all handgun if I could only have a single handgun.

    I'm so grateful I don't have to have only one.

    My choice would be Colt Python 4 357,,, just slightly over the S&W 19 4.

    Ruger Mini-14 and Remington 870 by the bed both wearing Surefire lights.
    Always carry a knife-they are handy to have
    Always carry a reload-You probably won't need it but it is good insurance .

    Of the guns I own or have experience with, probably my XD9 Subcompact with the C5L on it.

    Four Inch S&W 686 or a Ruger GP 100 with a four inch barrel.
    Last for ever if you take care of them.
    That's if I just have one handgun. But the great thing about life is that I'll never just have one handgun.

    Glock 19 and 3 full mags.
    Fear the man with one gun. Especially if that gun is a Glock 19.
