Glock 19, small enough for my conceal carry, very accurate and holds lots of bullets, and the most reliable pistol I have ever owned.

I wanna say my Makarov, but the damn ammo. Easily most reliable, and easy to work on.

I also wanna say my CZ PCR, but the damn innards are pretty damn complicated.

My 1911A1, if I runnd out of rounds, it can crack skulls real good.

It can do anything a reasonable person asks of a handgun.

Glock 19, but waiting on my STRYK B, to see if that changes.

One of my current CZ's, 75, P09 or P10C. (Or one of my future ones, P07, Scorpion evo, Rami or....).

I would go with my CZ P09 since I haven't been able to shoot that much yet with my P10C. With my P09 equipped with light and +2 mag baseplates making capacity 21+1 I feel I have a good high capacity reliable handgun I can trust in every situation.

Dont make me choose! I love autos and wheel guns for CCW, hunting, range, everything. S&W m686 4in ported combat sights, and those finger grove Hogue wood grips.

If I could only have one pistol it would be the one I could carry, the G43.

Definitely not my first choice for anything other than daily CCW, but being that I can only have one, I prefer to keep my CCW.

This would be a good poll. As a recent CZ pistol owner I am no longer surprised by the amount of CZs listed

Glock 19, accurate, 100% reliable, small enough to carry conceal and holds lots of bullets.

My go-to would be the Granddaddy of them all, the 1911!

So these days, sadly, only one gun = pocket pistol.

For me that's a Ruger LC9s Pro or a S&W 342 ti.
Yep. Yep, yep.

My light carry gun is a Glock 43.

But I have others to chose from.

Ruger P85mkII or P89 in 9mm.

Brick shithouse construction, large capacity mags, double/single action, decocker, ambi operation for mag and safety, hammer fired, useable as a club when out of ammo.

I don't care if its a "ghetto gun", the things are built well and shoot straight.

Sig P320 uncool edition. For whatever reason I shoot really good with it. I want that new Glock though that is competing in the German police trials. I would say Glock 23/19 is great as well.

I'd go with a full sized .357 magnum (Ruger or Smith).

Funny you say that. I have a Ruger P89 that lives in my car. It's ugly, cheap and stupid, but is reliable. It's not my favorite handgun but is perfectly suited as a car gun.

Draco with a brace and an RPK mag.

IF we are talking pure handguns, 1911 or Ruger Service Six.
