    Best handgun you don't have

    So after reading a reoccurring thread on which would be your only carry gun if you had to choose one, it seems most folks thing they have the best guns already in their arsenal. I would dare to say lots of people are biased based on what they own/use, probably for good reason (myself included).After all these are the guns we picked out ourselvesto use for ourselves, of course we picked the best!

    But it got me thinking, what guns/brand would you choose if you had to pick something you don't own? Preferably, don't even have any experience with.

    So, lets say tomorrow - you wake up and your carry guns are gone, but you have a blank check to replace with one firearm, but it has to be one you have not owned, and has to be from a manufacture you don't have experience with, or very little.


    Mine would be an H&K. Pretty sure I'd go with the P30. Unfortunately I have had zero experience with H&K's so far, so this would be a gun picked only by reviews and speculation that it would be a great gun.

    Probably one of the Springfields and most likely one of their 1911's.

    H&K Mark 23. I have wanted one for years, but can't justify the $2,253 MSRP.
    I carry a gun, because a Cop is too heavy.

    H&K P7 can't justify the price on the ones I've seen.

    For carry? Well, it would have to be reliable. I would have to go on reputation. It would likely be Glock 19, or a Glock 26, or a SP101.

    I don' think those are the "best" guns (whatever best is), but if I have to roll the dice with a manufacture that I don't have a lot of experience with (Glock) or a gun that I don't have a lot of experience with (SP101), those are my choices.

    1. All guns are always loaded.
    2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
    3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
    4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.
