I am needing to purchase a new gun this winter so I am prepared when spring comes and hiking season is back in full swing. I carry my hiking gun is a Blackhawk waist pack (pictured below). Previously the spot was held by my G29 (which I foolishly traded off). Now I am trying to decide what gun should replace it. I am torn between getting another G29SF, getting a another G30SF (which I also traded off), getting a .357mag revolver (like a 3" S&W m686), or getting something completely new to me. I am even considering a .45acp Sig P250 compact. The thought of a Ruger Alaskan has even crossed my mind. This will be a trail gun so the revolver would have some advantages power wise, but the semi-auto would have more rounds and be a bit thinner. Suggestion or thoughts?
