Same for a 1911. If not more available in the .45 caliber.

Can everyone just admit that all the damn squirrels will be dead within a fortnight where the s has really hit the f? Enough with the yahoos who think they're mountain-people survivalists because they drive a pickup and go hunting once a year! They tend to be the same people who work just hard enough at low to moderate-skill jobs to keep themselves in beer and cigarettes. They certainly won't be uniquely qualified and situated to "hide in them thar hills and live off the land like the early settlers but with a .22 LR." They'll be fleeing.

'bout it...

thread drift! the name of the thread is best SHTF pistol. not rifles or carbines or shotguns.

i think that the best SHTF pistol is the one that you already have and can shoot the most accurately.

ummmmmm I do mean to hurt all you big caliber gun koolaid drinkers!
In a SHTF situation it is not about the caliber but the amount of ammo one can carry to sustain himself, So most of you will be carrying a pistol caliber and rifle caliber! when you run out of pistol ammo you are left with what once an expensive pistol into a expensive hammer/club!

Me,
I will be carrying a 22LR revolver, 22LR Ruger MKII threaded barrel these will match the Savage MKII TR 22LR rifle threaded barrel with a silencer. I will be carrying 5000-10000 rounds of 22LR Can you big caliber sissy's carry that much ammo for your AR/AK/ auto pistols! You can kill anything in north America that walks with 22LR with proper shot placement! and being silent makes you that more effective!

how much does 10,000 rounds of 22lr weigh?

and BTW, while yes you may be able to kill just about anything in North America with a 22lr, but really how close to a grizzly bear do you want to get?

I'll stick with my Sig 226 as I have both the 357Sig and .40 barrels & tons of ammo which can be pre- positioned. Also it is carried by the British SAS and Navy SEALS only in 9mm. So I don't say its the best the SAS and SEALS do.

As far as breakdown I have an armorers chest and lots of Sig and 1911 & AR-15 parts if I happen to need them which I don't anticipate.

A Glock would be your best bet in a SHTF situation. Most simply built, low maintenance, reliable, and rugged handgun on earth! The only thing it lacks compared to other handguns is tons of 'elegance''.
