Ok. I don't have any personal experience with these guns, but I've been chatting with several guys for many years, and these seem to be their firearms of choice.

For a handgun, I'd be looking for a carry weapon. This is the category where I think I'm going to have to be doing the most shopping. I'm drooling over a Kimber carry 1911 right now, but come on, who doesn't.

For a shotgun, I'm looking at a Remington 870 and using this kit on it.

For a rifle I'm thinking either a 16" or 20" Cav-15. I'm pretty good internet buddies with two guys who work there, and I know they'd cut me a break on cost, and the general opinion is they make some damn nice rifles.

This all, of course, could be up for change depending on getting more experience on more guns.
I just recently got interested in a .45. I'm still not sure about it as a carry weapon. I know lots of people do it. Even though I practice quite a bit, I'm still not comfortable with the idea of cocked and locked. It may sound like Blasphemy, but if you like the .45 round, you would be better off with a glock in .45.

The best gun is the one that you carry. I tend to find that early on I carred large, and eventually didn't like it.

For jogging, I like the Smith Airweight series. I have a 642. My P228 just flopped around all over the place. The negative is the Airweights are hard to shoot, and even with the lightest rounds they have sharp recoil. It is definately not a fun gun to shoot. Because it is so light and small though, you can just throw it in a pocket.
