    My Kahr CW9 for daily carry, my Kimber 1911 .45ACP for open carry. If I was able to add a 3rd, it would be my Buckmark.

    Hmm, if I had to ... 2.

    Glock 17 for carry, HD.

    10mm 1911 (I have a RIA, would love a DW Bruin) for everything else.

    Runner up: .45 ACP DW VBob for carry/HD

    1. Large-ish pistol, for me a 9mm Glock19 to carry and keep by the bed.
    2. A small pistol, Shield 9mm (or similar) to be carried in the hot weather.
    3. A .22 pistol for plinking, a Glock frame with advantage arms kit would be ideal.
    4. A 442/642/LCR style small revolver to ride in the pocket or as a backup. I favor this over a micro .380 because this way, at least I get a revolver instead of all semis!

    Twenty-five years in the past I'd have answered S&W-4506Gen3 and a S&W-M640. Answering the same question today a S&W-MP9 and 9mmShield

    Thanks Bannockburn, it took me a long while to find ones that had the right look and texture while maintaining the small concealable profile. These are custom American Elk antler made by a gentleman in Montana. He does some fine work.

    At the very least, a couple of high quality vintage revolvers, (one target, one service type), a CCW 9mm, maybe a full size .40, and a 1911 .45 that works good. Oh, and I guess my Super Blackhawk with a 10.5 inch barrel because it's part handgun, part high powered rifle. :D I guess that's six guns.

    Surprising to some might be that a .22 probably would no longer be a must have gun in my collection. Don't have anything against them - I have a few - just don't see them as the ultimate practical gun like I used to.

    I love to target shoot and reload way too much to narrow down my collection of choice.

    I guess I would be okay with a dozen or so... the bare necessities...

    I could get by with 3.

    I'd go down to an LCP for carry to cover the most clothing options
    A Model 66 for home defense would probably edge out my CZ75b
    A Buckmark for plinking

    Just two for me.
    My F/A model 97 357 for precision target shooting and general revolver fun.
    My HK USP 45 for home defense, target shooting and general auto loader fun.

    A 357 magnum medium frame revolver and a j-frame 38 snub. In fact, these are all the handguns I have.

    If pressed, I could get along with just the 357 mag.

    I've been paring down my collection from 25 to 5. The 5 that remain are
    Ruger Mark II , plinking
    S&W pre model 10 38, first handgun I ever bought
    Glock 26, glock 17
    LCP
    The Glock 17 is probably the next to go.

    Now that I am going to retire I will need twice as many as I already have.

    One.

    My G19 does everything I need a handgun to do, well enough that I haven’t spent more than bored moments looking for a different handgun.

    Only other sort of handgun I’ve seriously contemplated was a “mouse gun” for CC in situations where the G19 might be too bulky. I sill plan to buy it, but if I’m honest with myself, I won’t shoot it anywhere near regularly.

    The Glock 19 is my absolute most favorite handgun- I have several, and used one overseas. That said, I was not happy with the Glock 43 a bit. The S&W shield is a much better CCW piece in my opinion.

    If you are asking me for bare minimum, I would say a .357 revolver in either 3" or 4" configuration. Preferably 3" for carry considerations.

    [EDIT: Ah, what the hey... add a .22lr revolver for me as well. Just too versatile not to have on deck.]
