    Autoloaders can stovepipe...pump shotguns can short cycle...a double-barrel holds only two rounds...etc.

    Which gun (or guns) do you trust the most? Which one always goes "bang" when it's supposed to? Which one do you KNOW you can count on if and when you need it?

    Col. Townsend Whelen said "Only accurate guns are interesting".

    For self-defense, I would say that "I am only interested in guns I KNOW will go 'bang' repeatedly when needed."

    Without a doubt my most trusted gun is my Glock 30. I have only had a few ftf and that was in the first 200 rounds and with Wolf ammo. Since then and thousands of rounds later I have not had a single hiccup with it regardless of how dirty it was or what ammo I used. When I grab a gun I expect it to go bang everytime and my Glock 30 has not dissappointed me.

    Pains me to say this..

    I have a Delta Elite, a WWII 1911A1, and a Springfield loaded, and I'd carry any one of them

    but for all around absolute dependability (harsh conditions, dirt, water, etc.), it'd be my G20 10mm

    Ruger Bisley 45 LC revolver

    870 12 gauge

    YMMV

    I've got to say for a defence pistol, my USP .40 compact has always been reliable.

    For a woods gun, I have to echo redneck2--my ruger SS bisley in .45colt is dead nuts reliable, followed closely by my single six.

    Reliable=simple

    Things that always go bang:
    Rifle: my Mauser M1916 (never fails)
    Shotgun: an old Side-by-side .410 (hey, it works)
    Handgun: I only have one that works, so it's be my Snub .22.
    YMMV--and i hope it does, in order to make this thread more interesting!

    Guess I'm lucky or picky or both. I can't open my safe and pullout a gun that won't work. If I could have only one I guess it'd be my S&W 586.

    My current handguns are listed in my signature. Despite the fact that none of the autos have never burped (other than my bought-used Patriot before I replaced the recoil spring), I must say my 4" stainless GP-100. I want to say the USP or the 228, but I'll stick with the GP. Yeah, that's what I said. Uh huh...

    Of course, there's the Mossberg... :rolleyes:

    When it absolutely, positively has to go bang, my go to gun is my stainless 4" Ruger GP-100, which has never even given me the faintest hint of trouble over some 1900 rounds now. Happens to be the best tack driver too.

    It is also a pretty wicked club if required. I have about three autos I absolutely trust, (XD-9 and 2 of my 5 1911s) but none of them enjoy the faith I have in my revolver.

    I thought my Glock 22 would be my favorite gun, but I have a used ParaOrdnanace P14.45 that is accurate and very reliable. It is my favorite and would be my carry gun if not for the weight. I have a few .357 S&W revolvers otherwise.
    On rifles, I would probably go with my M1A or an old Rossi .357 mag lever gun for home defense.

    Lots of my guns are 100% reliable—not counting .22 caliber match pistols, to be sure.

    Most trusted... Must go bang.... Hmmmmmm????

    Sig P220 or S&W 686+ (really close call there)
    Stoeger SXS 12 ga
    CZ-550 American .308 Win

    Now those aren't my favorite guns but if I had to grab just what I knew would work fine and last a long time out of my collection those would be it.

    Most trusted gun? My 340PD, it's the one I carry every day, although my 586 is a close second....

    My choice would be my Sig P226, but for absolute guaranteed reliability...I'd have to go with the S&W Model 36 snubbie. Some designs just never go out of style.
