$2500 can buy a whole lot of pistol(s) here in the US. What does the typical pistol cost in your country?

Maybe a CZ in .40 S&W? That would get you a solid, reliable pistol with a little more knock down power than a 9mm. But as stated above one shot knock down in a pistol is tough without going real big caliber. Then it won't be so range and plinking friendly. A Dan Wesson or Colt 1911 in 10mm might also work. If you can only have a limited amount of ammo then ammo cost shouldn't hurt too bad.

Maybe you need a rifle or shotgun too. 😄

that's a good question.

all my pistols are in stainless & i love em all. but they are very different.

OP- do you want a revolver or semi? high capacity or powerful round or compromise between the two? ability to conceal/carry or full size?

Country Do you have a cartridge of your choice or several to pick from. A revolver or semi-auto ? If you can hunt or want very accurate Freedom Arms. Dan Wesson 715 or s&w 686 or 627. Pistols , Dan Wesson Heritage or Valor or one of les Baer 1911's

If you're determined to go with a SS finish (I'm assuming non-polymer lower), I'd recommend researching:

CZ 75b- Probably the most quality for your money
1911 (various makers)- Lotsa options at various prices
Sig Sauer- Some of Sig's P220/228/229 are available in SS

There is also the EAA Witness Match (CZ 75 clone), BHP Practical (hard chrome finished Browning Hi-Power), and the Beretta/Taurus 92 is a good gun if you've got bigger hands.

Thank you all for your recommendations, I'll be looking them up!

Sorry about the late reply, I would prefer a semi automatic but a revolver will do if no semi meets my requirements.

In my country you can buy pistols, shotguns and some hunting rifles. As I don't live in the countryside and wish to be ready to fire immediately after the first shot the latter are not options. SMGs and Assault Rifles are illegal here and not even the cops have them.

I'm thinking if a civil war breaks out or if we get invaded by Russia or China and I am in a situation where I need to defend myself against an oppressive occupation regime I might need something that can pierce body armor (not planning to go guerilla or anything but in case my life or family are threatened by some occupying grunt). I suppose I might need something like a Desert Eagle but those are extremely expensive. I looked up the prices and they cost nearly 3500 Euros... Wow...

To sum up my main criteria in order of importance:

- No jamming
- Extremely durable and resists humid environments and rust
- Accurate
- One shot one kill if necessary / can pierce body armor
- Durable enough to be used as a blunt force weapon if necessary

Thanks again everyone!

PS: perhaps i should mention that while i am a good shot in general I am not very tall, heavy or strong, in fact I have rather thin and weakish small hands and arms. i never had any issue with the browning shotguns I used to use nor the P22 but i thought i should mention it.

Huumm. Armor piercing too !!! For get the standard pistol cartidges. For get stainless steel. Carbon steel firearms have worked well for a long time , back in the match lock flint lock days. Not many pistol cartidges are armor piercing. Think about a 5.7x28 FN in the five-seven pistol and carbine and the 4.6x30 HK maybe . IF you capable of owning them over there. Otherwise Buy what you can service over there like glock, hk, sig in a cartridge you can buy loads of ammo for.

One shoot kill ?? Practice , put a ..22lr or 22mag on the center of there face and there died or scambled. Heck ,Buy a AK47 or 74 in a carbine and pistol .

Might as well have one of these also . Killed a lot critters and been used on people too . Easy to buy and carry 5000 rounds if needed. Get good with it.

In the U.S. a stainless 1911 from a reputable company can be had for around $1000 (755 euros.) They are available in several calibers and conversions are available for several more from .22 LR to 10mm. I do not believe any could reliably defeat armor, but is that really a necessity? And the 1911 is the most customizable handgun.
Are BUL firearms sold there? They make a fair quality hybrid 1911 in several calibers.
