    I went with Taurus PT99, an adjustable-sight variant of the Beretta 92FS.

    Get whatever you like. There are MANY great choices. I just suggest something fullsize with a double-stack magazine and a tac-rail. Adjustable sights are good too.

    I have a glock 17 and a 12 gauge for HD, a glock 19 for Concealed/duty weapon and a g26 as backup. I agree that a full size for HD or a shotgun.

    A mí me siento muy cómodo con mi Ruger P95. Por supuesto, tal vez haya una pistola más buena en opinión de los otros. Creo que la mejor pistola es la una con que tú puedes disparar con la mejor habilidad.

    I feel most comfortable with my Ruger P95. Of course, maybe there is a better handgun in the opinion of others. I believe that the best handgun is the one that you can shoot most skillfully.
    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

    I don't think the 12 Ga argument is as open and shut as everyone says it is, though they're great in some situations. I wouldn't want to defend the back 40 with one.

    Anyway, back to the question. I like my XD w/extended mag. 22 rounds of hollowpoints on tap without a reload.

    Of course, having a shotgun for backup isn't a bad idea.

    If laws dictate only one handgun, I would have to go with the Glock 17. You can stock up on replacement OEM parts. So if/when something breaks, just replace the part. No sending back to the factory. I don't know about being able to do that with other models.

    I advise a rail on the gun with a light. Get training on this system.

    You will be using this for home defense. The free hand will allow you to open doors, etc while still having a light at the ready.

    I had to clear my house the other night and when I get my 1911 .45 back from the smith I'm getting a rail installed. Pronto.

    In your situation, I'd go with a G19.

    Ruger P93 w/ 30 +1 at the ready.

    I know that Ruger's P series isn't the best looking pistol they've made (personally I think most of their products are pretty funny looking)., but recoil is the most manageable from a 9 that I've seen yet. That plus the P series is ridiculously reliable.

    another vote for the glock 19

    If you carry in Condition 3, you have two empty chambers. One in the weapon...the other between your ears.

    Strictly for home defense, I'd choose the Beretta 92FS, but my Glock 19 is good for both carry and home defense, so my Beretta stays in the safe.

    Well, there are a lot of 9mm's that would be great... For home defense I'd use whatever I can get my hands on. With that said, two 9mm's I'd like to have would be a Glock 19 and a Sig 229 9mm. That is, if you want a smaller pistol. Me, personally, I am on a full size kick right now, and am really considering buying a 226 9mm.

    My only experience with 9mm is with the three I own. Of those, I would choose a Smith & Wesson M&P.
