    Whatchu talkin bout Willis? That's just crazy talk.

    Guns are like beards. None are perfect, and some are better than others.

    IF I had to choose, it would be a Steyr L9-A1 fitted with night sights. It has good capacity, shoots accurately, fits me perfectly (grip angle), easy disassembly, and isn't too expensive. Down side is limited range of holster options.

    Ok, I changed my mind again.

    Today it would be a Colt 1911.

    If I see this thread tomorrow it may change again:)

    OP, I am digging that holster! Can you tell me please the brand and model? If IWB (and not lefty OWB), does it sit directly on your skin, and if so, whats the comfort/sweat like with it?

    And if I could have only one? I am a guy that never stops questing in most things in my life. At the moment, I suspect it would probably be the P365 with manual safety. It's "enough" in basically every category (size, weight, capacity, shooting feel)

    It would be a difficult choice for me, since my tastes are varied, but I'd have to give the nod to the Glock 19x, even over my Colt Defender or any of the others I have.

    The 19X comes with 3 magazines, a 17 rd, and two 19 rd mags, (that's 56 rounds of defensive ammo with +1 in the pipe), night sights are standard, it has a 4" match-grade barrel, and conceals ALMOST as easily as the Defender, and my wife is more comfortable shooting it than the Colt. Plus, it's a Glock. It eats anything and I can bury it in the dirt for a couple of years and dig it out, rinse it off, and it'll still go bang each time I pull the trigger.

    H&K VP9SK.

    Reliable, concealable, and a good shooter. And it takes VP9 full size mags.

    One gun for financial reasons? That's just silly. Anyone who chose a gun for 5 or 600 dollars could easily buy 2 less expensive guns. If truly for financial reasons the only choices are extremely limited. High Point, Kel-Tec, military/police surplus. The cheapest of the cheap. Otherwise the premise of the question should be a different one. Gun grabbers get in and you're only allowed 1. What would you get if you had x amount to spend. Any way, I'll try to answer for a "moderately" priced gun that I would choose for my one and only.

    I first would think that it might be good to have a gun that is easily carried daily. If it were I would pick a Kahr CW380 but I would really want something that might be useful in practically any situation I could imagine needing a gun for. That would make caliber an even more important consideration. Well, I would think that the most versatile rounds that I would be able to carry every day would be .357 or 10MM. I would really love a 4 inch .357 or a 10MM 1911 but if I'm trying to cover all possible uses I think I want a double stack semi-auto for more fire power. A 10MM 2011 is certainly doable but to carry every day I think a lighter pistol would be a better option for me. That leaves me with basically 3 options. Glock, Polymer EAA Witness, or the one that I would choose finally My Grand Power P40. If I needed to spend less it would be the full size polymer Witness.

    Well, I still haven’t changed my mind( which is unusual).

    Colt 1911; Commander or Government Model.
