I have to change my mind because I just sold the Glock G40 10mm which I listed earlier. Since I have eight of them, I will have to say a Colt government model 1911 for now.

I go back and forth like others here but, for what I need a gun to do I have to fall back on a 4" 357 revolver. I can still conceal it and its enough to do Grizzly duty occasionally...barely.
My daily carry is a S&W M&P Shield 9mm (Performance Center model 10108, July 2017) I use extended round mags for a firm grip. Both Inside & outside the belt holsters (through & clip-on) with tactical belts as needed. I choose this model for quality & reliability. It has been trustworthy & performs consistently well. Small enough in stature to be worn comfortably.
I always answer this question the same way -- a nicer Python.
For me, assuming ammunition was not an issue...the Glock 32 in .357 SIG. Small enough to carry in most situations, more than enough wallop if I need to use it, and enough capacity to satisfy most.

If I could only buy ONE handgun, it would be one of them what Lima Charlie has.
Which one ? I dunno. He can pick it out for me.
But somehow, I have a feelin' I might not like what he picks.

Uh...right this moment, I would say a .357 Magnum with a 6 inch barrel. Tomorrow that might change, but I am comfy with it now.
A Taurus like this .357 would be perfect for me.
Crabby Old Goat, that's me!
Sig P226 I have shot every type of ammunition through this gun with rapidfire and never had a jam and stayed pretty accurate.
