Something that goes bang EVERY time. Outside of that, anything I can handle and control well. There are so many choices, and so many good quality guns, that many of them would work for me.
"Gun Free Zones" is where only criminals carry guns.
I would want to sample a lot of different makes & models first, but for now I would stick with my Officer's ACP.
A quality 1911 Commander size .45acp Stainless finish, with night sights, "melted edges".
just one ??? Thats no fair ! I don't think I could pick one...
but it would be in .45acp.

I will support gun control when you can guarantee all guns are removed from this planet. That includes military and law enforcement. When you can accomplish that, then I will be the last person to lay down my gun. Then I will carry the weapon that replaces the gun.
Is it winter or summer?
Am I sitting in my garden at noon or driving through the ghetto at midnight?
Am I in a 10 round mag state or a free state?
Too many variables.
Don't want to poop on the thread but it is precisely because there are so many variables that I have a choice of carry weapons.
If forced to have one for any scenario I would probably choose my XD9-SC, it's the closest thing to a perfect gun.
I'd like to say my Sig Sauer P220 but in the summer it's way more comfortable to have my Kel-Tec P-11
Being peaceful does not guarantee peace, strength and a willingness to commit violence when needed does.
