If You only had 1 pistol and 1 revolver to keep what would they be?

If you decided to keep only 1 pistol and 1 revolver (for self defense and home defense) what would they be? Thanks

2 handguns

the two I use most are the smith 442 .38 special and the midsize glock 40 cal.
But the Ruger Blackhawk .41 magnum with 4 5/8" barrel would be hard to leave behind.

Very tough decision......

I guess I'd have to go with my S&W 6904.

I don't own any revolvers anymore.

So, since it's not fair that I only get ONE.....when everyone else gets TWO.....my second would be my Kahr CM9. Hah !

If the second MUST be a wheel gun....then I suppose I'd go find a 3" HB S&W Model 10. Used to have one....best revolver I ever had.

Well, if purely defensive purposes are specified.....

I'll roll with my Sig P220 and the S&W 649-3 Bodyguard Airweight in .357.

The two handguns I use the most are a Ruger mkii and a S&W M617.

So I'd give the others to the kids with the understanding that I could use them anytime I wanted.

Don't use hand guns for home defense.

Hmmm, would either be the 642 and FNP9....or.....

The 642 and the Glock 17.....or.....

The FNX45 and the Anaconda.....or....

The Sar K2-45 and the Python....or....


Well, I guess I couldn't make up my mind, so I'll just keep them all, thanks anyway. Lol

The revolver choice is easy - my 4" S&W 686 Plus .357 Mag.

The pistol choice is much harder. It would come down to a choice between my IA Walther PPK/S .380 and my 4.5" Springfield XDm .45. I'd probably keep the PPK/S for it's concealability - I could easily buy another XDm.
