Default Which Gun...To the dying end?

Always had this idea after going on a call as a beat cop years ago where a WWII Vet passed away in his bed. His son informed me that when we moved his dad's body, a loaded gun would be found under his pillow. Sure enough a well worn, loaded S&W M&P .38 special was right there. His son said his dad was a scrappy, tough SOB right to the end.

I figure when I get to an age where I'm not comfortable keeping my collection around - I'll par down to just one handgun for basically home protection or "under the pillow" security. The others will be passed on to my two sons, if still possible then??, to avoid any red tape issues, etc..

If such a scenario would occurr? Which "one gun" from your current collection would it be for you?

My choice: S&W 19-3 4" loaded with .38 +P's. Very accurate and easy to handle.

Tough choice between G-Father's pre A1 1911....and a 4" "early model",629 with professional action job?

I would want it to be my GP100 but I suspect it would be too heavy for me to lift if I were weak with illness.
