    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?

    You have these credentials and you're asking "us"?

    I'd say keep both and add a shotgun. (but what do I know)

    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."

    Why limit yourself to just one. The more the merrier right?

    Carry?
    Home defense?
    What guns are we exactly discussing?
    Physical infirmities?
    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.

    What?
    If I had to keep only one it would be a revolver.

    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.

    What revolver, what pistol?

    Pick one, I don't think it matters.
