I have two Kimbers that I really enjoy...Ultra & Pro CDP II's.
But since I got the Glock-36, it's dependability and ease of takedown...gets me to thinking...this could be the one!

If I only had one choice, then I'd want a reliable 1911 chambered in 9x23.
Night Hawk Custom maybe ?

If I can only have one, it has to be the great compromise handgun that can do everything. Not too big or too small, not too weak or too strong a caliber, light enough for carry but big enough to handle some recoil. I pick the H&K USP 40c.

I would have to say my Ruger MKII Standard. (GASP!!! Did he say a .22lr???) Yep. I can do just about anything I want with that gun. The .22 has little to no recoil, and while not my first choice in a defensive/offensive cartridge, it will get the job done, and inexpensively at that.
Not to mention that it ws my Dad's gun and the first one I shot. There is a lot of sentiment there.
If I could only own one (Sacrilege!!!) it would be a custom BHP in 9mm.
I'm placing my vote on my XD .45 acp service model
I wear a seatbelt, but I hope to never need it, I use smoke detectors in my house, but I hope to never need them, I carry life insurance, but I hope to never need it, I carry a weapon, but I hope to never need it.

Only one handgun? It would have to be the most-reliable, mid- to high-capacity firearm I owned. One that was well-worn, well-tuned, well-known. One that could take being dropped, drowned, dusted, and dinged ... yet had come through it flawlessly. I had one with nearly 40K rounds on it but I sold it some 9yrs ago, a Browning BDM 9mm. Now, I've got a second one and am in the process of breaking it in. I've just picked up a second handgun that seems to be on that same path, a CZ P01 9mm. 400 ft-lbs of 9mm that I can control very well, conceal well and for which there's abundant ammo available: priceless.
