Just one handgun?! For me it would be the S&W 686 4 inch. As long as I stay out of bear country it will take of the job.

Hey, have you ever shot Buffalo Bore 147 grain hard cast +P out of it? I carry a Glock 26 with that ammo in the hills, but I am getting warmed up to the idea of buying a 365 for all-around carry.

The G19 currently resides in 1st place with the G17 in 2nd.
I still want a hammer fired gun so Both would easily be replaced with an Hk P2000 in 9mm Da/Sa. Some quality training ... and a bunch of 124 gr. and some Ranger T Ammo. to fill the gap would get me to the DO ALL I need.

I don’t believe there is such a thing. The caliber I use for the street differs from the one I use for the woods. More appropriate perhaps is there a “do all” platform? In this case, it would be a Glock. G19 for the street. G29 for the woods.

Mine is the Glock 19 as well, for sure.

No, haven't shot the Buffalo Bore; if i lived in Grizzly country, i certainly would. No real dangerous animals in the mountains around here. Perhaps people could be considered dangerous; maybe lion? My 365 is loaded with 124g Gold Dot, or Federal 124g HST. Have shot other 147g rounds; they worked fine.

Thanks for replying. I found a P365 yesterday and shot some of the Buffalo Bore today. Using a Labradar chronograph, I got a 10 shot average of 1010, high 1035, low 994, ES 40, SD 11.8. With the Glock 26 Gen 4 that I carry in the woods with that load, I previously got a 5 shot average of 1036, SD 5. (That was with a traditional chronograph with screens about 5 yards from the muzzle, so the velocity may be a little slower than true MV.) The load perforated and exited 8-1 gallon water jugs when fired from the Glock 26.

Because you mentioned 124 Gold Dots (assuming standard pressure), today I shot 10 out of the P365 and got an average of 1047, High 1073, low 1015, ES 58, SD 23, compared to 5 shot averages of 1076 out of a Glock 26 and 1033 out of a Glock 43 (both with the traditional chrono).

My "do all" gun for 15 years was a P229/.40 (made in 1997)

However, after two successful sight swaps, SIG changed the cut on their sights and sight makers did too...now I can't get sights to fit properly.

Now my go-to is P320 or G19
