Only one gun period, not gonna be a pistol.
Isn’t the 23 a fortay? I would have to pass on that one.
Because I “love” Glocks, my choice to own only one gun would be “RIA 1911 A1 22TCM/9mm Tac Ultra Combo” .
Good idea to have two different calibers.
If I could only have one gun I’d want a full size M&P or Glock.
I’ve been a big M&P fan for the past few years, but I think I’m devolving into a Glock guy.
Can’t imagine having just one gun. Hard to hunt long range game with a pistol and even harder to conceal @Lu-Can ‘s excellent choice.
Same, Thank goodness we don’t have to live by this rule.
H&K G36, because it’s lighter than a M249😉
Hopefully you don’t live in a “one gun a month” state. It’s killing my bank account.
I would have to go Ar pistol.
@Jerzy I didn’t have a clue Glock23 interchanged .40 S&W - .357 SIG - 9mm - .22 LR until he mixed it up
I think I need to see your dictionary and how it defines “gun”. That sort of looks more like a “gun platform”, but I’m not a lawyer, so my interpretations don’t count.
( I knew I could count on you for an interesting choice though)
If I take the question to mean that I can only have one firearm of any kind, and that it has to cover any situation I might ever expect to find my self in, not knowing what environment I might come to be in, or what the main needs might therefore be. Not knowing if it would end up being urban conflict, criminal threats, or country survival, as the future situations I might come to be in.
6" .357 magnum revolver, Ruger Security Six I think.
If I was stuck with it, a Glock 20, 10.mm wouldn’t leave me feeling too bad either.
neither is a rifle or shotgun, but then, It can just live on my hip, never having to be put down, or set aside to do other things, and therefore, will always be there. And the reach is still 100 yards plus when needed. Hunt, fight, or defend, none done ideally, but all done competently.
@MikeBKY now that’s a nice one. But might be a little hard to conceal.
@DS-1 The"revolver" concept pops in my head every now and then, and seeing this brought the idea to mind again. I’m partial to and it’s pretty common seen carrying +1 mag nowadays, but for long time people have carried (still) fully loaded revolvers fully feeling prepared. It may be the “rustic” nostalgia giving off a feeling “everything’s alright”.
I couldn’t think of any reason not to like an M&P honestly. Especially now with the 2.0 S&W still being and can be competitive. I’ve just so happen to have the M&P15 in AR platform miss out a bit on handhelds.
He made that look easy but his repeat of “don’t force it” someone messing up.
