    Too much overlap in that poll.

    • Ruger SR22 or 22/45
    • Sig 290RS or Kahr CW9
    • SR9c
    • Blackhawk in .44 mag
    • 1911

    I would have to keep looking for a more appealing to me set of five. :scrutiny:

    Same here. No good choices at all. If any of those groups of pistols cover all of your needs, you're a VERY limited shooter!

    I voted based on the SW 629 and Ruger GP100.
    The others, well, different strokes for different folks.

    The G19 and 629 cover all my needs. The others are just a bonus.

    I'll be the first to admit, I'm not much of a handgun guy. I shoot them the most, but I just don't see a handgun and think "I have to have that" like I do with long guns. If I could only have 5, I would want a couple carry guns, and something for the woods. Call my 5 boring, but... here they are.

    G26 Gen 4
    G30 Gen 4
    G21 Gen 4
    4" 629
    4" Ruger Redhawk (.44 Magnum)

    Throw a .22 upper on one of the Glocks, and I'm all good.

    Unless they were a gift I wouldn't buy any of the combinations. The Anaconda was the only desirable gun on the list. Three of the lists had Glocks in them. I have a DA POS I don't need or want more.

    Set four. Then I'd sell the Anaconda and Python, using the loot for a custom Ruger Bisley and S&W 29.

    Sorry but all your options are crap!

    You don't have a single small ccw gun on any of them.

    Here is the 5 CATEGORIES you need to cover and my picks for them.

    Large Bore Revolver: Ruger Redhawk

    Service Semi-Auto: XD/Glock in either 9mm or 40auto

    Compact CCW: J-Frame Revolver or Kahr Semi-Auto

    1911 Pistol: Springfield Armory (but there are plenty of good choices)

    .22 Plinker: Ruger MkIII

    a SIXTH optional category is Service Revolver for which I pick the Ruger GP100

    1. Airweight J frame .38 Special
    2. Browning Hi-Power 9mm
    3. 1911 .45
    4. Ruger SP101 3" .357
    5. MId size frame 4" .357 (such as Security-Six, Colt Trooper, S&W 19)

    If it came down to one of these it would be the SP101.

    Needs or Wants?

    Hard to justifiably find a real deal need for five handguns.

    But wants? That's a whole 'nuther expensive ballgame.

    For me:

    1. CZ P-01 9mm or P-06 .40 S&W: Covers your do-in-all and CCW needs. Not a fan of super compact handguns, personally.
    2. Ruger MkIII (or a .22 Kadet kit for the CX): Your .22LR plinker.
    3. .44 S&W Revolver (or 10mm Auto): General bear, criter, and watermelon defense.
    4. 1911: Historical purposes
    5. Broomhandle C96, Preferably a "Red Nine" in 9mm: Again, historical purposes.

    I, like many others found the poll to have way too many redundancies in the options. Personally I chose Option #1 because I liked the combination of the Glock 19, USP 45, and especially the Colt Python as that would give me an HD/viable CC (19), a devoted home defense (USP), and a "woods gun" (Python).

    I like the thread though, and it got me thinking If I were to be limited to five handguns, it would be a difficult choice, so I decided on the following possibilities:

    Option #1: This this would be my set if price of ammo and ammo interchangeability were not a factor.

    1911 (might switch for large bore revolver)
    9mm or 40s&w polymer duty sized (XD, Glock, etc)
    380 pocket pistol, most likely Kahr or Ruger
    S&W J frame
    Ruger Single Six 22 LR/Mag convertible (I see a lot of you putting down 22/45s instead, those are great guns but I personally prefer this one for its cartridge versatility and pest control capabilities)

    Option #2: This is what I would pick if I wanted the most versatile group that used the fewest number of different calibers.

    Glock 19
    Beretta Nano/Ruger LC9/Kahr
    S&W J frame
    Ruger GP-100
    Ruger Single Six 22 LR/Mag convertible

    I personally feel that this option would cover almost all my bases while only requiring 3 different cartridges (four if you count 357). However, it is far from perfect and results may vary.

    I picked the one with the Colts in it simply because it doesn't have any Glocks in it. I would only buy a Glock as a last resort and nothing else was available.
