You've used up all your supplies. Everything is gone, from wall to wall and floor to ceiling.

You have two guns left, and 100 rounds for each.

You can barter either for a month's worth of food and water.

The batteries are dead on the flashlight on the Sig. No replacements available. Not even sure why you keep it on there.

Which do you keep, which do you trade?

Get rid of that smith and Wesson. It's all about looking cool . Plus being limited to only 6 rounds not a fan in a shtf situation

I'd keep the S&W since there's nothing more reliable and easier to clean/maintain than a wheel gun.

I know if I could only keep one gun from my stash for a SHTF scenario, I'd pick my S&W 681.

Unless I anticipate having to use the large mag capacity in the near future I am going to keep the revolver, more simple, less parts, easier to clean, already been said etc.. and if nothing else it will make a better club.

How many of my own bodyguards do I have? And why have I put myself into a situation where I have two desirable weapons with me and am severely outnumbered by people who have no use for me?

Yeah, that really only applies if you're a brony.

Otherwise, assume normal human behavior. You're NOT surroudned by bronies.

Sig has more parts that can fail, like the magazine spring

If you're down to two guns, and they're both handguns, you've done something horribly wrong.

Of those two, I'd keep the S&W.
Link Posted: 10/25/2013 8:02:56 PM EST
Keep the revolver. Semi-automatics can use up a lot of ammo real quick, and you don't have a lot left. Semis also usually need more support in terms of parts, and they become almost useless if the detachable magazine is lost.

Also, revolvers can fire some really bad reloads if necessary, while semis need somewhat consistent powder loads and bullet weights.

We all know from the Japanese story that the 47 Yojimbo (bodyguards) will fail in their mission and become ronin.
Double-wield attack is the only choice.

It is your karma to become Shogun...

Sig is high cap and looks to be can capable (could acquire a can later on). If extra mags are included in your scenario then the 100 rds of which you speak are easier to carry and available for immediate reloads. The revolver is somewhat clumsy to reload individual rounds and enemies will use that pause in the action to advance on your position. Six shots between reloads does nothing to increase your combat survival chances either...

GD answer: By my math that still leaves me 153 of the original 200 bullets I had for the pair of handguns...

Serious answer, well as serious as I can be here, I'd keep the sig.

With all the screws to back out and having experienced ejector-over-cartridge jams; I am not a fan of wheelguns. I do believe that wheelguns, given proper attention, are less likely to fail. When they do fail, they're a total fail not as easily rectified as a jam with an auto.

I'd always choose a hi-cap pistol over a revolver. I tend to miss a lot and piss off large bands of zombies so truthfully, I need the capacity.

Of the dozen or so pistols owned in the house, the Sig is the last pistol I'd want on me. That chamber is way too tight. Reloads are like rolling dice, and we had a box of dirty factory stuff that it really hated too. At least that belongs to my roomie's girlfriend, so in a real defense situation, she can be taken out first and eaten, giving us all time to head for cover.

If I was forced to choose between my pistols though, I'm keeping the Glock 19. High round count, very durable (I'd trust it to be the last of my pistols to rust), and I'm very good with it. Chances are better that I'll find more 9mm down the line than I will .357mag too.

S&W for me. If nothing is available I want something reliable, meaning less to break and sure to fire. Mag capacity at that point to me doesn't matter much I'm not going to be Rambo challenging groups solo with either.

The amish are all Fudds with Fudd guns.Most can't hit the broad side of a barn from the inside with a shotgun.They also don't give a rats ass about gunrights.

They hunt like mad motherfuckers but usually don't bother to practice or sight in their guns.Just go out in the woods and blast away.

I believe most would watch their children murdered and their wives raped before they lifted a finger.

They would make good serfs in a post apocalyptic world.

So then you load up the Sig with just 6 rounds.

How does a Sig with 6 rounds use up ammo any faster than a revolver with 6 rounds?

I was thinking parts availability as well but a 10-22 would be a good choice too

6 shooter.....before all my ammo was gone....

I know place to get lead.
I could make a round ball mold that would work for a 38/357.

Black powders has been made under some pretty darn primitive conditions in the past and someone will get busy with that in the future. The 38 or 357 case will hold enough to be meaningful. Round ball and bp in an auto...haha....forget that.

That only leaves primers and I would barter for if I could find any.

Better odds of having something workable long term with the revolver IMHO.

My comment was admittedly tongue in cheek regarding competing for ammo with an extremely popular caliber. The .22lr ammo shortage goes to show what millions and millions of ammo burners can do to billions of rounds in short order. The SHTF scenarios that come up and are pondered are much like putting merchandise in the cart before winning the hundreds of millions jackpot in the Powerball. A mental exercise, that we just can't be prepared enough for.

Someone here just mentioned the ability to cast bullets, which is something that I always return to when considering abandoning my wheelguns altogether. As well as the ease in retaining fired brass. I like to shoot wheelguns at my local indoor range, which doesn't allow brass retrieval for the most part as they won't shut down the line and personnel push the accumulated brass forward of the firing line at regular intervals.
