    Walther PPK/S for carry

    1911 .45 acp, Kimber at the moment

    625 revolver in .45

    I'd have to part with SAA replica, in .45 colt. That's kind of tragic. But my 625 is my comp gun.

    I know they're not all auto's but here goes. 4" smith and wesson 357 concealable and hard hitting. Ruger single six it was my dad's and I've taken a whole bunch of rabbits and rattlers with it. Smith and wesson m&p 9mm. It's high cap, reliable, and accurate.

    If it was three pistols I'd go with a Ruger Mark series .22, Beretta 92 or M9 and a 1911 of some sort. If it's three handguns we're talking about, then I'm in for a .22 revolver (like my trusty Dan Wesson 22), a .357 revolver (the 686 comes to mind) and a .45 ACP like a 1911 or Glock 30.

    Actually I'm going to change mine as well. Different situations & all that since my earlier post.

    Concealed: Mauser HSc in 32 ACP
    Small Sidearm: S&W 65, 3" .357 Magnum
    Full sized Sidearm: S&W 625 Mountain Gun in .45 Colt

    Still need to find that Model 65 (or a 13 would do too) but I'd actually be quite happy once I do.

    Ruger LCR .22
    Ruger LCR .38
    Ruger LCR .357

    I love the LCR platform (can you tell) and I like only having to know and practice with 1 battery of arms. So .22 for practice, .38 for carry and .357 for HD.

    I would pick the exact three I currently own...the two that were my dad's: a) S&W 686 PowerPort 6" .357 magnum revolver; b) S&W 642 snubby .38 spl +p revolver; and my Beretta 92FS Inox 5" 9mm parabellum semiautomatic pistol; due to bad spending decisions I have had to intermittently sell firearms and what I have left is what I like the most

    Right now I only have two:
    XD40 Service
    Glock 22

    Same caliber(40S&W) one for the wife and one for me.

    3rd is a toss up. I would like a MP shield, but also want a 1911... I have rifles for hunting, but if I had to have a pistol for hunting I guess my 3rd would be a large caliber wheel gun.

    9mm Sig P226 - Great pistol and my first hand gun
    .45 Colt Model 25 - At least one big bore has to be in there ;) (Also a BP reload option)
