You have only one choice.

Some mystical genie says all your guns and rifles are gone...but you get to keep one, only one.

Which one of your guns or rifles do you pick? Your ultimate favorite that if you had to only have one, you would choose that one.


CZ 75 SP-01 Tactical

Scoped .22 bolt rifle.
The trouble is, they can make stupid laws faster than we can beat them down in Court.

Ruger 4 in. stainless Security Six and some extra springs just in case. The rest of the gun will never break or wear out.
I'm not especiially glad to see you. This IS a gun in my pocket.

There's a better tool for a number of situations, but the closest to a gun that can do anything that I own is my Steyr Scout.

I'd opt for one I want but do not have at the moment, a Perazzi in 12 gauge

I like the answers

Especially Mistwolf...LOL

I see we have some CZ fans...

It would be tough to part with my AR (and all the others), but that one (the CZ) would HURT...lol

Waiting for the 1911 fans !!!

I think I would also choose the CZ 75 SP-01 Tactical. The 3rd Gen Glock 19 is a close second.

Sounds like a "gun control genie". How can you trust that your choice of gun won't just vanish.

I don't like this scenario! lol

No, I'm not paranoid.

J frame Smith is the only logical answer, but it's a rediculous question.

To the magic genie:
No problem. But I'm kinda busy right now, so I'll have to get back to you on that. Can you come back next week? And bring a list of guns I get to choose from.

Oh, you want ME to tell YOU what guns I have? Yeah, no problem. I'll have to round them all up. Just come back on Monday.

Sorry, I gotta run. I'm going on a fishing trip. I am also dropping some gifts off to some friends.

Depends on what else is going on. If a mystical genie shows up, I'm guessing zombies are soon to follow, so I'll go with my suppressed AR-15 in 5.56.

Reason being, 5.56 is in abundance, while subsonic 6.8 and 300BLK aren't easy to come by.

One gun is very tough. My choice is the Smith & Wesson 686P .357 Magnum with the 2.5 " barrel. A versatile piece that can fairly easily be concealed,good in the woods, and great for car carry. 7 rounds with a back up 6 rounds in a Bianchi wallet holder.

I've had mine since 1998 and will never let it go.

A rifle makes a great primary firearm thus, my Colt 6920. :-)

I'd have to go with a mossberg 500 with 18.5 cyl. bore barrel, 28" vent rib with removable chokes, and a rifled slug barrel. Good for everything except cc.

Let my aim be true and my hand faster

Grant me victory over my foes and those who wish to do harm to me and mine.
Let not my last thought be ‘If I only had my gun.’”
And Lord, if today is truly the day you call me home
Let me die in a pile of empty brass.”

My Remington 870 with a couple barrels.

You can't get much more versatile than a shotgun with an 18.5 cyl bore and a 28" barrel with screw in chokes. Add a rifled slug barrel to that, and you're good to go.

The one the Government says is legal for me to keep.

(Not the answer you are looking for but I always will own more one than one legal firearm).
