The one I bring camping (way out in the sticks) and hiking.
Also home defense gun since I shoot very well with this gun.

Ruger GP100:

Not many men on drugs or not get up from a 230 grain .45 caliber bullet.

My Ruger .357/9mm convertible single action. Dead accurate, reliable, and allows for scrounging/ using a variety of ammo if necessary. Good for gathering game from sqiurrels to deer and for self defense. That being said I'd be just as happy with my Security Six or Hi-Power, even happier with my Ithaca or Mossy 12ga. Or my 760 Remington .308..

I always have my Glock 30 on me; at home and in the truck I also have a Glock 23, 27, and a 31....... So pretty much any of those will do the trick

My go-to firearm would have to be my S&W 457 of course.

Right now it's an auto with an upgraded stiff recoil spring because I have kids around and no handgun safes,gun goes up on a 6' shelf also.Once I get a small safe or gunvault my 44 mag is definitley getting loaded at night

If you don't want to sound like a noob, I'd suggest you don't make statements like "revolvers don't jam".
I think more accuratley,revolvers jam less than auto's if they are both pristine clean and maintained well,but shoot 500 rounds without cleaning and you will probably see more issues with the revolver than the auto.That being said,and it being known that I like both,I favor revolvers-i've had way too many bad dreams of bullets jamming up on feed ramps,not that dreams are always reality,but for my personal preference a revolver is better.

My go to gun in an emergency is whatever is closest at the time. My preference would be my KimberCDP ProCarry loaded with 230gr. Black Talons.
