I have to really think about my own question! How about the rest of you!?!
Glock 17. Not an exciting choice but a reliable and simple one.
If we bumped it to 2 handguns a 5" 44 Magnum Smith as well.
No Question. My Charter Arms Undercover .38 Special with a 3" barrel
Today, this one. P220 10mm Auto.

Tomorrow it’ll be a different one.
I'd pick a Glock 19 Old Unc
4", stainless, 357. GP100 or 686. You have a wide variety of OTC ammo and can do close to anything with it.
Gen 3 Glock 19 with night sights.
I could go a long time with this.
Something I could hunt with and still carry. Probably a nice 1911 in 10mm.
4” S&W Model 66.
Small enough to conceal under a jacket, light enough to not be a burden. Ammo is everywhere and ranges from powderpuff .38 WC for practice, small game or defense to 180 gr .357 loads for hunting bigger game or defense.
Colt Lightweight Government in .45 ACP along with a TacSol .22 conversion assembly.
So this is a post-apocalyptic survival scenario?
Id go with this one-
My P226 would be a close second.
Looks like an S&W 586 357 Combat Magnum. Beautiful!
I promised my love to just one women, I ain't doing the same with a handgun. Life is two short for just one gun...
The one I used to own! S&W 686, 4", 357 Magnum.
These threads are so hard, SD, fun, hunting, ???
Maybe a S&W M13 because it can be carried concealed and it's powerful. Maybe a M627 because it holds 8 rounds. Of course there is the 1911. I don't think I can pick just 1.
Good choice. The G19 is an indestructible classic!
Who says I can only have one handgun?
Are you some sort of... Democrat?
If I had to have one handgun then that would make a compelling case for the 10mm even though I have no interest in one now. I would need a pistol or revolver that would serve as a hunting gun, home and personal defense and range blaster. A 4.5-5” 10mm gun would fill that roll. Probably a Glock or SA.
Well I suppose if I had to.....
I'd strongly consider a 4.2" barreled stainless Redhawk in .44 mag. With some of those Nill Griffe grips, a BCA Target rear sight, a variety of carefully filed front sights (which are easy to interchange) for different loads and applications, and an action job from a very competent gunsmith who knows the model well. I might aswell just send it off for custom work. Can I keep all my others whilst I'm waiting?
I'd rather keep all my handguns and just have one rifle.
Excluding CC, Blackhawk.45 convertible.
I could possibly get it down to two: the G27 that I carry concealed and the SBH that I carry otherwise.
If price was no object, a Wilson Combat CQB Elite in 10mm. I could never justify that kind of pistol, though, so while I'm not a Glock guy I'm really tempted to say Glock 29 as my realistic answer. It's small enough to conceal but you can get larger magazines and a longer barrel for woods carry.
I do like 10mm as a do-it-all caliber because there's such a broad range of ammunition available for various purposes. Only downside is ammo cost and availability.
I don't understand the appeal of hypothetical-masochism games. At all.
I knew you'd like it Sluggy
