    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 :rolleyes:
    Anyway i like the Suppressed Ruger .22 Auto also :cool:
    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 :cool:

    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.

    Sorry, I hit send on accident. Anyway, I don't understand how a small, high velocity bullet punches through kevlar?

    I picked one up about 2 weeks ago for my own collection and what I've seen so far is with the right ammo that puppy will go right through a level 3 Kevlar vest without so much as slowing down...
    It's just a bit scary when the "what if" scenario's start to pop up

    Wow. What grain bullet does it shoot?, and do you think it would stop a person as well as it penetrates armor?

    I've got it loaded right now with 40 grain v-max bullets and these will not penetrate a vest
    but when we tested it last week I had my friend from the local SWAT team request some of the restricted AP ammo.

    With the correct shot placement it sure would stop somebody, do I think that it will replace my 1911 anytime soon?
    Not a snowballs chance in hell.

    The only reason that I carry it at work is for demonstration to my customers.

    I'm saying a suppressed Glock 17. As far as my 3 mags allowed...they make 33 round mags for the Glock 9mm, so I'll take 3 of those please.

    I'm also currently on the market for a lightweight holographic... Taking suggestions on a thread of mine under sights and optics.

    I would go with the P238. It is easily concealable so I can have it hidden until I can be secluded with one of the guards to put some rounds in him with the muzzle right up against him to reduce the sound. Then I would take the guards weapons and go to town.
