    I’d grab whatever is the most readily available. Anyone here have a firearm that’s worth, or sentimental value, is so much that you just couldn’t bear the thought of it ending up in the police evidence room? I seriously doubt that Cam even has one of those.

    Should a handgun get taken by law enforcement as evidence I can't see anyone from the prosecutor's office or police supervisor ranks putting dibs on a Glock prior to "destruction" but they'd be lining up to have a Colt SAA under the same circumstances.

    A close friend of mine had his car stolen many years ago and he had a SIG P230 in a bag in the trunk. The car was recovered a few days later and the gun was gone of course. He reported the gun as missing and ten years or so later he gets a knock on his door, police had recovered the gun in the hands of a suspected gang member. He ended up getting the gun back but quickly sold it as he didn’t want police coming back years later to question him about any other possible crimes that may have been committed with it while it was out of his possession.

    I don't know bout where you're from, but here in the boonies of the Appalachians, you can bet the local Sheriff's Dept ain't gonna destroy no ivory gripped Colt Gold Cup Nat'l Match .45. or a nice Colt S.A.A. It will wind up in some Deputy's collection( personally approved by the local Judge), and the paperwork will show it was destroyed. If you want to see it again, just show up at the Sheriff's Dept Firing range with a set of binoculars. I suppose this means we should all rush out and buy some under powered piece of polymer huh??? Either that or some Saturday night special or a cheap single shot shotgun.

    I carried a Glock 23 on duty for 17 years and had over 6,000 rounds through and was even an instructor with one. I do not have ANY gun with a light trigger like a Glock or 1911 for my bedside gun. When you hear glass breaking or whatever, you get an adrenalin dump and I don't want a light trigger at that point. So the gun is a DA/SA Sig next to the bed. Just my opinion, and yes in the rest of the house there are guns with light triggers for emergencies.

    Regardless of brand...reliability is the number one thing for a defensive firearm. A HI-Point .45 or an inexpensive side-by-side can successfully defend you well as long as they've been tested and proven reliable. We all have our favorites and I wouldn't care to lose any but quality and reliability is worth more to saving my rear end than what might happen to the firearms afterwards.

    I would trust my safety to one of my Pythons but that's not what's in my night stand...a Trooper Mark III is. It may not be as valuable or have the panache of a Python but it's just as capable and reliable.
