    We've all been there before, for one reason or another. Regardless of why, the decision never seems to get any easier.

    The question is, if you had to keep one, and nix the rest, what would you choose?

    CZ-75B
    Glock 19
    HK USPc 9
    HK USPc 45
    Sig M11-A1
    Sig P239
    Sig P938
    S&W Shield 9
    HK MK25
    Wilson Combat CQB 45

    What is the primary use of the remaining firearm?

    First, I'd pare the list to these 3:
    CZ-75B
    Sig M11-A1
    Wilson Combat CQB 45

    and sell the rest. Then, it becomes a matter of taste vs need: do you want to keep 45 acp? If so, keep the Wilson. Do you need the most cash? Keep the CZ, sell the rest.

    CZ 75B is probably the gun easiest to replace later on for cheaps, but is also the one you get the least return on. Unless you absolutely have to keep the Sig for sentimental purposes (your alltime fave for example), or you greatly prefer the Sig manual of arms over the CZ, I'd say sell off the Sig (should get you a nice return).

    I'd sell all but the G-19 then buy a G-26 and put the rest of the money in the bank.

    I'd keep the Glock 19 if I wanted a CCW, or the MK25 if I just wanted to keep the all around best and coolest gun.

    Heck, I want a Mk25 myself here...

    A good friend of mine recently did just that,,,

    A good friend of mine recently did just that,,,
    Except he sold off all of his guns.

    It took him a year but he peddled over 60+ rifles and handguns,,,
    He's a single man in his late 60's with no family to speak of,,,
    So he started listing them on gunbroker and sold them all

    Then he went on a very carefully planned shopping spree,,,
    He purchased a scoped CZ-455 for plinking,,,
    A new Browning 12 gauge for hunting,,,
    And a Ruger LCP for his pocket gun.

    At times I think I should do just about the same thing,,,
    But then I bang my head against the wall until those thoughts go away. :p

    Only one? I'd cry a little, but it would be the G19. Winter's coming ( ;) ) and packing a Glock 19 wouldn't be a problem in the least. I'd feel confident with a G19 for home defense.

    Without knowing threesome why or what use you'd out the remaining gun to, the clear answer is the Glock 19

    Ah a Man with a plan gotta love it :) I could live satisfied the rest of my life with a Browning Shotgun, Browning .380acp and My LCP.

    OP keep the one you shoot the best and will carry the most.

    Tough call. There's some nice guns on that list.

    I'd have a hard time deciding between my G19 and Shield.

    The answer is always G19/23.

    The Glock 19 and the USPc have the most utility. They are small and light enough to be carried. Big enough to be fun to shoot at the range and/or used as a home defense gun.

    The Sig M11-A1 and the HK MK25 are the pieces that are the most interesting, at least to me, from a collection standpoint.

    If I needed money I would probably be trying to sell the Wilson Combat due it's resale value. I suppose the MK25 could also be looked at this way.

    If you had to fill every niche, from pocket carry to IWB with just one gun, the P938. 6+1 or 7+1 of 9mm is not too bad. It can be pocket carried with the 6 round mags. Harder to do with the CQB 45. If it's never leaving your home, or you very infrequently carry (if at all), then that's another story.

    But, you did not expand on it's role.

    I unfortunately just went through this myself.
    I ended up keeping just a glock 27.
    For you, I would say keep the glock 19 unless you are not able to carry outside your home, then I would keep the mark 25

    Super easy.....Keep the CZ75.

    Most of the others are what coin collectors would call modern junk.

    The Sig M11, MK and Wilson come in a close second...

    From your list I would narrow it down to in no particular order the Sig M11-A1, HK USP 9C, and Glock 19 as these are three outstanding all around guns and go from there. If regular CCW is planned then the HK USP 9C or Glock 19 could be the best due to weight savings being poly framed but a lot of people CCW the SIG M11-A1..

    To me a lot would depend on preference for hammer fired or striker fired and which I could shoot the best.

    Then again if CCW is unlikely the Wilson Combat CQB 45 could definitely be the keeper.

    depends on the use.

    I'd ask him what he took the the range the last few times he went. Keep whatever got taken the most.

    unless he is looking at a carry gun.

    either way, I'd sell all the hk's. Man I hate shooting those guns. they just don't work well for me.
