Semiauto-my Browning HP, my first handgun.
Revolver-a toos up between my trusty old Colt Troope and my Dan Wesson M-15 Pistol Pac.

NOT POSSIBLE, but ... assuming the world is about to end ...

My revolver would be my Ruger SP101 with the Meprolight front sight.

My auto would have to be a 1911.

See, I told you it wasn't possible.

I have to amend what I said before. If I am assuming the world is about to end, I want a high capacity pistol that will run no matter what, so I take my CZ P07 instead of a 1911.

Ugh, I hate that I just said that.

There is not much I could not do with a Glock 20 10mm, and a Ruger Blackhawk .44 Mag Flattop (6.5" barrel). I have told my shooting buddy, "If I could have just one handgun....", and I have said it about each gun, and would be superbly armed if I had both.

My first thought would be a 4" bright stainless Python and a bright stainless Gold Cup National match enhanced model. But I would like the take a SW 329 instead of the Python only because it is a 44MAG and sometimes I might run into large bear. Loaded with 260 hard cast Garrett rounds I am sure that would do the trick.

I think I would go crazy making up my mind because I also love my SW 617 in 22LR which enables me to shoot a lot.

Self Defense

For the pistol either a Colt 1911 combat commander xse or Glock G23. For the revolver probably a very slick S&W 681 w/4" barrel.

First choice would be my 6" Python, and Colt XSE Lightweight Commander.
Second would be 6" Trooper, and Springfield Champion Loaded.
Third would be 2 1/2"S&W Model 66, and Kimber Ultra Crimson carry II

This was kind of hard.

I kept seeing this thread, and thought and thought.

Glock 19 and Cimarron Model P 5.5" in .45 Colt.

My wife gets to keep the others, right?

Currently? P226 and S&W 620.

Personally ideal? Glock 17 and the 620.

Ruger P94 & Smith Model 58. You said for self defence. General purpose would be a Ruger MKII and Smith 629.
