All responces should be measured and approximate.

I should hope my last moments would not be contemplating or preparing for the demise of others, but rather the joys that have filled my life. I hope my final hour is spent as far as possible from law and order issues that consume our lives, and I can settle into the dust at peace with myself, and everyone else.
In life, I act responsibly with my G20, and in death, I will have place my firearms into other responsible hands to continue on my traditions.

Under my pillow? How about a photo of my Mother. That will be all the protection and comfort I will require.
Perhaps it can be used to defend one's dignity. At that age it gets to be difficult for one to do so. I know, as I have sat by while life has slipped away on more than one occasion.

I choose my Springfield Armory 1911-A1 hands down. Been shooting it for 10 years and is one of many pistols I own, but is my favorite. When I turned 21 and was legally able to purchase a handgun it was the first one I bought. I've got it in the shop right now for a few upgrades and new coating. Can't wait to get it back!

Right now, today, I would probably go with my old well worn Beretta 92G or my Smith & Wesson 4506-1. Both have tuned triggers and are exceptionally accurate. And both can also be used as impact weapons if need be.

I would have to go with my heritage arms single action six shooter with the 22 mag cylinder in it. My dad bought it for me at a gun show when I was 13 and I plan on it being the gun I teach my son to shoot with first. But as for when I die I wana go at a hundred miles an hour with my weiner in my hand. Just seems like it would be fun.

For me, it would be my forever simple and reliable Colt Trooper 357. If that became too heavy, then it would fall to its lighter weight cousin ... Ruger LCR 38. Either would work.

Ruger P95 because it's not worth a lot and the 9mm +P loads have virtually no recoil. 15 rounds should be enough to hit something even with parkinson's disease.

Out of my collection I would have to say my 6 inch Ruger GP100 loaded with Glasers. It was my dad's first handgun, and when I got my permit it became my first. It has served my family well for over 25 years, and I would trust it to the end.

Now if it was any gun in the family collection, I would be honored to keep my grandfather's 4 inch Colt Python by me at the end. He bought it when the NY State Police phased out the .45 Colts in favor of the .38 Specials. After having to shoot a deer 5 times to end it's suffering, he wanted something bigger. So he went and talked to a local gunsmith, and left with the smith's personal gun. The only thing he had added is a trigger shoe to widen the surface area of the trigger to lessen trigger pull. He carried it for 22 years, and it never failed him once. It would be an honor to have his service pistol with me when I reach the clearing at the end of the path.
