Default POW Weapon

Ok, this is somewhat of a Rambo thread. If you were a prisoner of war, and you only had one handgun on you (it doesn't have to be small) what would you want? You can only have 3 magazines/speedloaders, etc on you. Also, your in a camp of 15-30 men, who are armed with aks, and pistols of their own. All you have is the handgun... No grenades or anything but the handgun.

Maybe a draco or AR pistol, because of the capacity.

Suppressed Ruger .22 Auto. That gives me 30 quiet rounds to begin collecting SKS's, pistols, etc.

Or suppressed Calico 9mm. That's 300 rounds if I can have 3 magazines.

Or any of the pink pistols, and see if they laugh themselves to death.

Wow- someone has a little to much thinking time
Anyway i like the Suppressed Ruger .22 Auto also
The co-owner of my locals has one & all you can hear when he fires it into the bullet trap under his desk is the bullet hitting the trap

Hmmm... What kind of pistols are the guards carrying??

If this is a "Rambo" thread.... Just a bayonet....

It's just a hypothetical question. Obviously there's holes in the situation, but its just for fun.

All depends, are the guards wearing body armor?
If they are, I'll take a FN Five-Seven with a suppressor.
If they aren't I'll take Ruger MK II with an integral suppressor.

You know I've heard about the 5.7 being made to penetrate body armor
