I would take my PT99 9MM because I have 3 18 round mags for it and 9mm ammo is pretty common so it would be easy to come by.

FNX 45 tactical would be my choice if I had one lol

My Ruger Redhawk 45ACP/45 Colt revolver. Shoot both types of ammo accurately. I'd be packing mainly Colt loads but would throw in a few boxes of 45ACP. The Redhawk can shoot some stout Colt loads!!!

Here goes.....44 Redhawk 7.5" barrel. Even if I have to bug out of the house at some point you'll have to hunker down somewhere even if it's temporary. Rested on a log it's a 100 yard rifle. Can easily knock down larger game for occasional meat.

I would however kiss, bag and bury my other handguns and pray they'd still be there on my return.

Now if each member of the family gets to carry we'd have a 44, 45, 40 and a 22. The nine gets left behind.

It's not populous where we live so large firefights probably wouldn't happen. Find a spring for fresh water and don't wander too far from it.

That's the plan anyway.

While my Kimber 1911 is my favorite hand gun, I have given a lot of thought to this but my bug out handgun would be my SP 101 great reliability low maintenance. I know the scenario said handguns only but I would also carry my Mini 14.

Hmmmm.

Since I have to haul all the ammo in my backpack and my wife is going with me, I think I'd have to take my Beretta Neos 22lr. Yes, it is a small caliber but I can carry a lot more 22lr in the backpack and my wife shoots very well with it. With a 6 inch barrel and a red dot sight, the Neos is very accurate out to 50 yards. I know a lot of folks dismiss the "stopping power" of the lowly 22lr, but with multiple magazines of 10 rounds each, there's a lot of potential to put multiple rounds on target quickly.

And IF I could take a rifle, I'd have to go with the 10/22. Same ammo, both the wife and I can shoot it well, and the 25 round magazine keeps it popping for a long time.

Playing by the rules . . . ONE HANDGUN and I'll be supplied with ALL THE AMMO I WANT/NEED . . . right? OK then . . .

Assuming I have to plan on fending off aggressive thugs as well as large bears, I'm taking my Super Blackhawk. In such a scenario I'd actually prefer a Redhawk, but I don't have one. The .44 selection allows me to choose full-house superloudenboomenwhackers for things that require such, and .44 Special type stuff for less strenuous activity.

As mentioned, hunting would be an unlikely survival activity long term, but there, too, the .44 ammo choices are pretty nice if a bit much for really small game.

Given a "hideaway" not plagued by big bears and such, I'd give serious consideration to my GP100 because of less mass to carry and the good ammo flexibility again.

I don't believe there is a perfect choice. If there were that's all the manufacturers would offer.

I could do quite a bit with my trusty .22 MKI bull barrel . . .

My Glock 35 dual caliber 40/9 (is that cheating?). Light, pretty accurate & hard to break.

Mk111. Easy. Light weight and can carry a bunch of ammo. Since I left my house, I'm assuming there is no electricity. No electricity means no freezer. No freezer means no big game. Squirrels and other small game and turkey fit the 22 well and with my target model I basically have a 50 yard rifle. Would not hesitate to use for self defense either. I also don't have to worry about bears where I live

Believe it or not, I'd take my older, 6-shot, 4" SP101 in .22lr...'cause it's incredibly accurate and I can easily carry enough ammo to last for a while!

It may not be a 'one-shot-man-stopper'...but I can hit what I shoot at with it!
