What are you looking for in a handgun? Why are you buying it?

Pistol... I personally like a .45 caliber of a reliable make: SIG, HK, Glock, Springfield (XD, XDM models). I'm sure others will suggest others, though I get a chuckle at the 1911 lovers. My faves are the HK followed by the Springfield.
I might also suggest picking up a 9mm as well because it is a NATO round and there will lots of available ammo should the SHTF.
Rifle: Any AR model chambered in 5.56. Same reason: NATO round. It's good to have a military rifle around for those special occasions.
Also, agree with Wrabbit - find a gun that works for you. I used to have a Walther P99 but couldn't hit the broad side of a barn with the damn thing. It wasn't a good gun for me. The HK, however - I can lay down a 2" pattern at 21 feet with ease.
