If we were talking about Revolvers, my Smith and Wesson, model 627, 8 shot 357 with a 4" barrel is hard to beat.

But if I was limited to just one gun I would probably just take up knitting.
Am I likely to buy one in the near future? Not sure. But that wasn't the question.
Well then why don't you buy/carry one? Any gun may well be your only/last. It kind of works like that.
Fair point, and I've begun to look. I've just been too OCD to break up the H&K squad I have at home. For handguns at least. Sigh...
But I suspect in a month or two there will be one Gen 3 19 in the safe. Oh and in CA, 'carry' is an abstract concept.
But to answer the question of just one, it would be a CZ.
I have heard same veiws on Glock 19 from many people. The size and reliability factor are just amazing.
It's tough to beat a gun that will fire 357mag, 38spl AND 9mm.
In a SHTF type deal when ammo could be hard to come by for example, I think it would make an excellent survival pistol compared to something that can only fire (1) and "only" (1) caliber.
That said however, I have nothing but love for my HK USP .45acp as well with a tac-light and 12 round mags.
It's been dead nutz reliable and accurate.
So this is a tough question....
Everybody makes a "Colt" these days (har), that's why.
Range toy- Done
It also has the versatility of being a delight to shoot with light .38spl loads, and still being able to handle monster .357mag loads. All it needs is an XS front sight, and you're good to go for anything for which you'd NEED a handgun.
I'd say "IMHO", but it's not. It's just fact.
