    Only one? Well then it would have to be this one below which as a matter of fact I just purchased today: Kimber K6S Stainless steel 6-shot revolver in .38spl/.357mag with 3" barrel.

    My reasoning behind choosing this type of handgun over any others are:

    1. Super rugged stainless steel construction is drop dead reliable, safe and easy to teach anyone in your family/party how to use properly.
    2. .38spl/.357Mag offers great versatility and .357Mag option packs a real punch if needed.
    3. 3" barrel is still relatively easy to conceal carry yet offers greater velocity and better sight radius for home defense, outdoors, etc. then a snubnose.
    4. SA hammer, although not essential, is there as an option if you want it.

    Just for the record, I'm not stuck on this Kimber K6S as my only choice. Any S&W, Colt or Ruger offering in this same configuration and similar size would also make for a suitable "only one handgun" choice for me.

    If I could buy only one, for all uses forevah and evah, I do suggest a Glock 19.

    As much as that hurts my heart, forevah is a long time, and I want something easy to maintain, find parts and ammunition for, that can suffer some poor maintenance.

    Otherwise, my Colt XSE is perfect.

    Until today's range trip, I'd have said a Glock 19. But now I'd have to say...Glock 19 still. And I don't own one right now either. Kinda on a Sig roll...

    For self defense? Difficult choice. Were I still living in Miami, FL I’d have stayed with the Sig Sauer MK25 9mm. Good enough for the SEAL Teams, good enough for me. But now, retiring as I have to the East Tennessee region, self defense includes wildlife, such as Bears and Mountain Lions (Oh My!). I’d have to opt for the venerable
    .45 acp — probably the Sig Sauer P227 since it would fit all the holsters I had for my old MK25. The P227 has the advantage of increased capacity over most of the 1911 family. Ten round flush fit magazine and a 14 round extended magazine. I have two of the ten rounders for my current P227 and four of the extended.

    I have been carrying a Commander length 1911 for many years. This equipped with fiber optic sight and Crimson Trace laser grip would be (and is) my #1 choice.

    I have to agree with you Ex Soldier. My 227 N. Carry, just fits the bill, now with short reset trigger X-Ray night sights .
    Loaded to the gills with smoothness and accuracy. May not be the very best pistol ever , but it has the Goldilocks /Snow White... attribute....

    " just right"...

    When I bought my S&W M2.0 Compact last year, my goal was just a SD gun for home. I was carrying my Shield (1.0) at the time.

    What I quickly found was that the M2.0 is not too big for IWB carry, so I started carrying it. I shoot it well, at least for me, and now my Shield hardly ever leaves the safe. So I would have to vote for the M2.0 Compact.

    I'm going to catch flack for this but...

    My primary carry is an S&W M&P M2.0 Compact 4" in .40 S&W but it wouldn't be it.

    It would be the Ruger LCP .380 ACP. It's incredibly accurate with Hornady XTPs for what it is (7 rounds at 7 yards offhand into 0.75" last range trip) and has had two malfunctions in it's lifetime (Fed AE that was over dimension and wouldn't chamber and the follower on a brand new magazine stuck on the final round of the first loading and loaded the empty case back in the mag) and it's always in my right hip pocket even when I'm unarmed.

    The .380 in my pocket beats the .40 at home everytime.
