I'm wondering what your go-to hand gun is?

    Well, for inside the home I can't say which one is. You see, wife and I have one or more handguns in every room of the house. Upstairs and down. All are in easy reach.

    Probably 4 or 5 that have slipped down to the bottom of the infamous powder blue chair. You better go check, you might find a winner you have forgotten about. Maybe find some gas money too.:rolleyes:

    That chair has been gone for a few years Sheep. But, there actually is a CZ82 tucked out of sight under one of the couch cushions upstairs. This is the prime time of year again here for late night Home Invasion. I was ready for them 5 years ago when the last two tried it on me. I never will forget the look on the face of the guy with the pry bar taking one last look through the glass. He saw a Ruger P95DC about a foot from his face. They were "Gone with the Wind," so to speak.

    my usual daily go to handguns are, either the Bersa 380, or one of my revolvers in 44 Mag.

    an extra magazine for the Bersa, or a couple speedloaders for the 44.

    SIG P227 Ntron Carry with a rail.
    Seems like no more of them will be coming out of Exeter...at least for the present. (& my 14 rd. Mag works.)
    Shoots nearly as good as my Colt Gold Cup NM.

    I carry my Colt DE 10mm a lot at home, in the woods, go to town. About any where now we can shoot deer with them I din't even strap up the 44 for deer season this year.

    If I knew leaving the house I was going to a gun fight, I might take the G20 or probably just stay home.

    My goto gun has to be whichever one I have on my IWB belt at the moment. IF SHTF, then it is my G19, and if on the trail hiking, it is my Glock 20.

    Added: If I am sitting around eating bon bons and drinking coffee, it is my S&W Airweight (.38 spcl).o_O
