    What gun do you like for everything? Daily carry, truck/car, hunting, camping, fishing, home and self defense? Mine would have to be a my Glock 22 or H&k USPC in a .40S&W. I love them both and they have been very reliable and very good guns. The H&K tucks away better. But I am better with the Glock.

    M1911A1/45ACP and/or Ruger GP100/.357Magnum

    Have several of each and they are hard to beat for "does it all" guns.

    So why don't I have just one? Beats me. Lately been carrying a M&P45...

    Three guns for the Elven-kings under the sky,
    Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
    Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
    One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
    In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
    One Gun to rule them all, One Gun to find them,
    One Gun to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
    In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.

    SIG 229. The gun itself may not be the absolute best for everything, but I'm so used to it that I almost can't goof with it.

    Top two.

    Because of the CCW application, I'll say 1911. Next choice would be a 12ga. pump gun.

    My glock 19 is my beater. I use it for everything but CC, where I use the 1911 instead.

    If there was such as thing as a reasonably priced 1911 with the glock finish, it would probably replace my glock. The zero maintenance tennifer finish is the main reason I use it. My 1911s are just as reliable as my glock, I just hate oiling them to keep them from rusting, or foregetting about one in the range bag for three weeks and having to have it blasted...

    Ruger SP101. Sorry. The wheelgun gets the nod when I want something to do it all.

    If I could keep only one handgun it would be my all steel S&W 4006. I love the way it soaks up .40 recoil in comparision to the newer plastic framed guns.

    By the way, when I first saw the title of this thread I thought it was going to be one asking which handgun would best fit the bib pocket of your overalls. I guess you gotta live in the South to get that. :)

    I thought the same thing! Of course overalls do have big deep front pockets!

    S&W 642-2 always in the pocket. Best little CCW for the $$$ on the market.

    S&W CS45 always in the car.

    CS45-02.gif

    S&W 1066 back up for the other two. Too heavy to carry and too big for glove box. It's a trunk gun when in the car. :what:
