Only one handgun!!??
 
If you could own only one handgun to take care of business, what would it be?

DrlSgt 22 June 2006 10:14

GLock 17 or SIG 228 ( I owned SIG 229 9mm right now..)

If it were legal in all 50 states, Paraordnance P-14. Nothing takes care of business like a high cap .45.

The one I am carrying at that time

IMO, Glock is the most reliable handgun out of the box bar none (havent put my hands on an XD yet). Bought one, cleaned it, then put 1000 rounds a day through it, three days running, without another cleaning and did not suffer a single FTF/FTE, not one. Used five new mags, and five very old mags I borrowed from a friend for the course, didnt matter, flawless function. Every other person in the course, regardless of piece, had some kind of malfunction, not the Glock. I shoot a Kimber Gold Match with some "goodies" for USPSA, but bet my life on my carry G22.

If I had to get rid of everything but one, I'd either keep my STI hi-cap .45 comp gun or my USP .45C.

Wait, does the PDW constitute a pistol? :D

Have to agree with the Glock on reliability. Ive never managed to get a failure out of my G19. I also have a wartime production Browning HP that has never let me down, Ive had that gun for 25 years. As far as 45s, Ive got a SIG P220 that is pretty solid, but I havent fired it enough to draw any conclusions.

Sdiver 22 June 2006 11:52

For me....Colt 1911 .45.

Old , tested, reliable. Can't go wrong with that.

Absolutely correct. Born with a 1911 in my hand, Army Brat, career Army, and since.

The only correct answer is: whatever you can use effectively.

or "whatever you grew up using." I know a few guys on here will chime in with "slingshot" or "bola" :D :D

Alex F 22 June 2006 13:06

SIG 220 or a tuned 1911.

glockcqc 22 June 2006 14:01

Handgun
 
Glock model that is handy.

100,000 + rds through my Glock34, not a single malfunction (ie that was not due to my own "reloading learning curve".

20,000 + rds through my 17..same story.

30,000 + rds through my 27.." ".

5,000 + rds through my 20C.." '.

10,000 + rds through my 35.." ".

SIGs. Broke 2; 30,000 rds appears to be current rd count for slide crack to develope.

M9s. They just break; broke 2

1911s. Dependent on manufacturer and magazines utilized.

BCoRanger 22 June 2006 14:04

Thats like saying all pintos dont break down. We had a glock fuck itself up at the last socshoot. I should have taken pictures for Silver Bullet :D

That's your experience. My experience is different. I ran a M9 qualification course for the Navy. The students shot our weapons. We shot all day every day. Relay after relay. We had minimum problems with the M9's. Locking block cracks were the only critical problem we had (after a year in service shooting all day, 5 days a week) and proper inspection caught that before it became a malfunction.
