    FWIW, I think saying "I'd keep x handgun, with barrels in a, b, c, and d calibers with cylinders for e and f" is kinda cheating. If that's the case, I'm taking a TC contender with every possible combination of caliber and barrel length. :)

    Or better yet a Sig P250 in every conceivable configuration. There, top that! It's hundreds of guns in one! :)

    The Convertible is only one gun, one barrel with an extra cylinder, and it comes with that cylinder.

    Plus, if your not cheating, you are not trying:)

    Well, the P250 is only one "gun," by ATF standards....

    Oh. Is that the one that comes with all the interchangeable caliber options? Not familiar with it myself, as such things have never appealed to me.
    But I'll see your M10, and raise ya a M19.:)

    It may be cheating but it is an option.

    Fortunately I can keep as many as I want. Just store them at a relatives. Just limit the number at my residence.

    I was actually thinking M19 when I wrote that - maybe the G19 caused a brain fart with so many 19s running in my very-limited-capacity brain. :)

    And yes, the P250 is basically a fire-control housing group that can accept sub-compact, compact, and full sized frames (each with three different grip size options), three barrel lengths, and in four calibers. The fire-control portion of the frame is the "gun," and it can be dropped into any combination of the other parts. Kind of an ingenious engineering feat, but it hasn't worked out all the bugs, and the "conversion kits" are nearly as expensive as a new gun, so they aren't yet all that popular. Still, if I could have every combo and call it one "gun," that would be hard to argue with as a "one gun" option.

    If it boiled down to only one. My Colt 1911 would have to be it.
    I love my revolvers, but that 1911 covers any handgun need I'll ever really have. The rest of them in my collection are mostly icing on the cake.

    Boring, generic, and common though it may be...the Glock 19 is probably the most suitable combat handgun I have. I'd be infuriated and saddened to give up my precious Colt Trooper, SIG P229, 1911s, S&W 686, and even my delightful, and weird, Nagant 1895 revolver. However, the whole point of a handgun is to be useful for self-defense, and nothing beats the Glock 19 in this house, in my hands.

    1911. It's been around 100 years and will be around 100 years from now.
