One of my 5" Colt's with my 20(or so) 8 shot mags fully loaded with 230gr. XTP's. Have shot several of those FN's and they don't get me the least bit horney. Especially with those "spray & pray" mags.-------
Of all the hand guns I have owned in the past I would have to say.....if I could only pick one.....a glock 17 with night sights. Easily manueverable, 17 rd mags, long enough barrel to be accurate, and I feel confident with 9mm hollowpoints in hand.
Handgun=GLOCK 17 with Trijicon night sights,Surefire X200, and maybe a CT laser grip. 17+1 of either Hydrashoks, Gold Dots, Rangers, or Hornady TAP FPD. I'll be getting a 17 after I get a Kahr PM9.
Shottie=Remington 870 18.5" Wingmaster, rifle sights, extented mag, Mesa Tac side saddel, Knoxx Compstock. 7+1 of Remington 00 buck in the tube and 4 Rem 1oz Sluggers on the side. I finished build this one up several months ago. It's just about perfect, only lacking a Surefire forearm.
Rifle=A Colt 1020 AR in select-fire. Plus many goodies like VLTOR modstock and battlegrip, Trijicon ACOG, some form of Surefire light.
They're usually close to hand, but IF I knew "it" was coming and couldn't get away or call a SWAT team or use a long gun, I'd probably go with this STI 9mm Long Slide. This is the easiest 9mm I've ever used when it comes to shooting fast and straight.
Felt recoil is extremely light in this gun even with +P ammo and the pistol's never failed to feed anything I've loaded in it or malfunctioned in several thousand rounds.
I'd stick with my every day cary glock 27. It is reliable and it goes bang when I pull the trigger. I have spare mags on hand as well. If I can't fend someone off with this then I have really pissed someone off and I've got bigger problems!!!!!
