I'm a little confused as to the context: What's the intended use, home protection, putting meat on the table, concealed carry? It definitely would change my answer. I voted revolver as something like a 4" GP-100 could function for home defense, carry weapon (maybe a bit heavy and bulky though) and hunting in extreme need.
If we're talking about putting food on the table or home defense without the need for carry, I'd say a 12 gauge pump with different choke tubes and loads.
Just noticed I'm no longer a "Regular Member," anybody got a bran muffin I can borrow? :danceban:
