Can you really only keep one or the other?
What are the actual models?
Is it down to one "do it all gun"?
Are they strictly for CC or home defense too?
"All the armies of Europe and Asia could not by force take a drink from the Ohio River or make a track on the Blue Ridge in the trial of a thousand years...As a nation of free men we will live forever or die by suicide.” ― Abraham Lincoln
What do you do if one breaks? Or if the unthinkable happens and you do have to use one in self defense and the police take it for evidence "for a while" ???? I'd for sure keep them both. There is a reason for this expression: "Two is one, one is none."
Getting old was not on my list of "things to do" in the Golden Years!
Talking to each other here is good, but taking action is better.
Free men do not ask permission to bear arms
Why limit yourself to just one. The more the merrier right?
What meets your needs?
We get the government we deserve.
What guns are we exactly discussing?
Anyone else involved? Their level of skill and training?
No way to answer your OP.
Carry a sidearm always. Be able to put shots into the torso and then head, if needed. The rest is much less important.
Read our government's plan to destroy the Constitution.
Guns are herd animals, like horses and cows. They suffer in isolation. You may need a couple more. And diversity is a good thing. Add an AR and a shotgun.
I know little on the subject so I'll speak at length.
If you have an excuse for failure, you will.
Do what feels best but keep a revolver.
I typically go revolver at my in-law’s farm. A 3” sp101 357. Lots of different loads are available.
