GP100 357 Mag 3 inch. Great for home defense, small enough to conceal carry, fun to blast away at the range, and accurate. Well balanced gun. On my belt as I write this.

My choice is a .44 Redhawk. I always wanted one, and when mine presented itself at a reasonable price, several years ago, I couldn't resist. It has a 7.5" barrel which doesn't really make it a practical gun, but it has to be the best shooting big gun, ever. It is exceedingly accurate at long distances, and is mechanically perfect. It has provision for a scope, although a scope on an everyday handgun seems stupid. And it is Beautiful!

Thankfully I can have more than one.

If I could have only one - I would choose the one I shoot the most - the Blackhawk.

I just got my first K frame, a Mod 67-1 that was once a gunsmith's personal gun so you know how smooth that trigger is.

As much as I love that gun and it has a more refined trigger than my Service Six, if I could only have one revolver I'd have to go for the Service Six just for the sake of long term reliability and endurance.

A single action revolver, no matter what, but, by coincidence, it would still be a Blackhawk. Since my carry needs involve an occasional issue with a problem bear in the neighborhood, my Blackhawk 4 5/8" Black 45 Convertible with Ruger only 45 Colt loads takes care of that, nicely. More than that, though, this Blackhawk has been an excellent and, thanks to the 45 auto option, affordable to shoot single action. It's a favorite in a safe full of great single action revolvers.

I chose the N-frame, although it would really be my 4" Colt Python.

I do like all my revolvers pretty much equally, however my nickel plated Model 19 with the cocoabolla grips is probably one of my favorite, as it has the smoothest double action, I've ever experienced on a double action revolver, and is probably the prettiest revolver I own.

From your list, I only own an SP101. From what I currently own, I'd keep one of my Dan Wesson's in 357 Mag with 3 barrel lengths.

GP-100 3 inch

From a practical standpoint, it would be my GP-100 3 inch. From an impractical standpoint, it would be my S&W Model 58 Military and Police .41 Magnum. Love that beast!

Off the list I own a Service Six, a .357 Blackhawk, and a .44 Super Blackhawk 10" bbl. I've also got a couple .22 Ruger single actions, an Uberti Cattleman Buntline, and a whole bunch of Iver Johnson revolvers.

I voted for the Service Six because if I could only own one, it's the most practical for all around use.

As other's have noted though, we're lucky to live where we're not limited to just one! So I'll continue to enjoy all the ones I've got and keep adding to the collection

Have to go with the Security Six, precursor to the GP100. Six rounds of either .357 or .38sp and more accurate than it should be in my hands.

Besides, it is just a darn pretty pistol.

Well, if limited to only ONE revolver..........my choice isn't on your list. No such thing as an all around gun for every purpose. If you need something to stop a bear.........while it COULD be your nighstand or carry piece, it's going to be a cannon. Something light, easy to shoot and easily concealable, won't stop that bear. So no "one size fits all" answer. So if it came down to the last revolver I would sell..........likely my 6" vent rib, heavy barrel Dan Wesson double action in 357mag

Certainly not my favorite to shoot but a J frame is my EDC. So I'd have to choose that one.
