Top 5 Pistols to have in a gunfight, What do you think?


#64

I would agree. I would say if someone loves the hi power, get one as a safe queen/range toy and a Arcus 94 to carry.


#65

That is a valid reply and I agree completely with you, but it is a reply to a different thread.


#66

So the BFR chambered in .45-70 isn’t enough for you? :wink:


#68

To each their own. I love the look of the BFR mostly because it resembles more of an SAA style rather than a more modern S&W style.


#69

to lyring:
Can’t help myself sometimes.
Lots of talk about buying stuff, and too little about how to use stuff.
I figure if I nag about it enough, at least some folks might get motivated.
And don’t even get me started about how people drive cars.


#70

Can’t think of 5, so I’ll take my 45acp 1911, shitload of mags(and a few hand gernades):sunglasses:


#71

The one you train with the most or shoot the best. Personaly it would be my 1911 because I shoot it every week rain or shine.


#72

Why the hate on the 1911? It is the greatest fighting handgun ever devised since the old .45 Colt SA. You don’t need a 20 round magazine if you can’t shoot in the first place. It doesn’t matter how much lead you throw if you can’t hit anything. The 1911 is a grand weapon as long as you don’t try to turn it into a camel with every useless accessory available.


#73

Glad to see another Old Conservative Fart! Personally, I think a rail does not belong on a 1911. The 1911 should be pure, clean and classic. At least esthetically.


#74

For 45s I love the HK45 compact, my buddy has a demo gun with 75k rounds through it and it still functions like new.


#75

You sir are goddamned right! And I also agree with the rest of your post as well. I make the same argument about carrying my Star BM with a co-worker who’s a typical Glock snob. Not a typical Glock owner, but one of those anti-steel frame snobs. In the end I left the conversation a winner with the statement of: shot placement > round count

@Minuteman
Oh yea, don’t to put a rail on a 1911… There are other great handguns with rails to choose from. Don’t ruin the classics. But I respect anyone who buys said railed up 1911 because they are still on our side.


#76

Exactly. To each their own.


#77

@g.willikers I know where you are coming from: I have seen a brand new Corvette get owned by a 80s Dodge Shadow (!) in a racetrack (lots of turns and one short straight. Vette became a lawnmower) because of the drivers’ skills. Someone said before racing (excluding drag racing) is 80% driver and 20% gear.

1.) Crap - I’m in a gunfight and I only have a pistol.
2.) 95% of the time the only pistol I have on me is my S&W M&P 9 Shield.
3.) Boy, I sure wish I had a shotgun with #4 Buckshot.
4.) At least I have a spare magazine with the maximum allowed 10 rounds.
5.) If I live through this I’m sure glad that 95% of the time I carried my Shield with MagGuts and a spare for 20 rounds total. And I hope Emperor Cuomo rots in hell for limiting me to 10 rounds in a magazine but the “bad guys” can use anything they like.


#79

No .36 navy pistols? Didnt Bill Hickok use them in a few gunfights?
