Here in israel we can own only one gun. We have pretty good selection to choose for (colt, sw, ruger, fn, glock, sig etc etc). Now imagine YOU can buy only one gun for home protection AND personal protection AND some fun - what would it be?
I am asking becuase i need to decide what to buy for myself.....
Thanks a lot.......
Welcome from South Carolina.
I was fortunate enough to visit Tel Aviv once, but it was all business so there was no time for sight-seeing... I still miss the hummus. I've yet to find a place here in the states that makes it right.
This question is often asked on this forum. I'll stick with the G19 as my answer.
'Clinging to my guns and religion
Assuming you mean one handgun, a Glock 19.
A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.
About hummos - well, i guess you would find a good one in every big city with an israely/jewish community...if you do find please let me know for my next trip to the US :)
When you say you can only own one gun, I assume that means you can only own one handgun........
If that includes rifles, I would definitely go that route over a pistol or revolver any day.
For a handgun I don't think you can go wrong with a Glock 19. For me it would be a better choice than the Glock 17 which is a full size, service pistol or a 1911. The Glock 19 could easily be carried concealed and would also serve well as a home defense weapon. At home you could safely stash a few Glock 17 mags (17 rounds each) and have plenty of capacity should the need arise.

If CC is out of the question. Remington 870 with 3 different barrels. One 28" barrel, one 18.5 inch barrel and a rifled slug barrel. That would cover most all of my needs. Receiver drilled and tapped for a scope mount. This would cover home defense, hunting for food and fun.
If CC is in question, then a G23 with an extra .357sig barrel and a 9mm conversion barrel along with a few 9mm mags.
Those are what I would choose.
Stop whining and go do something that makes a difference!
If you think that I may be talking to you, then I am.
and its got to work. out of the box and years later.
its not likely you will be making your own ammo; not for one gun.
much as i do not like glocks....id get one anyways. G-17
id like em fine if they had the Springfield type palm safety.
now...if cost of ammo is not a problem and you are able to take apart a 1911--
know what each part does and can put it back together...
depending on how you are going to carry id get a Colt Defender or a Kimber
Stainless Gold Match.
interesting you are going to carry. my visits there, those not in uniform expressed little interest
in handguns. my wife's family there ( large & extended) could not understand my & my daughters having guns
as a hobby and even found it a stretch for self-defense. understandable, what with all the armed soldiers mixing in public.
good luck to ua.

Lack of preparation on your part does not necessarily constitute an emergency on mine
For your country, probably something in the semi auto range, 9mm 15 rd or more. What brand you choose would be a personal choice.
Over here with hunting a consideration it would be a GP100 4" barrel stainless .357 mag, or maybe an SP101 in 3 inch. CC/Hunting/home defense/range, you could make it work for any of those.
Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

Glock 19 Gen 3 or 4.
Really? Just one in Israel? Just one handgun, and no rifle or one rifle and no handgun? I'd go with a G19.

I love my Gen 4 G 19! So I'll continue the praise of the G 19.
