Suppose you knew that you were about to face multiple bad guys and were forced to take a handgun to the fight.

No rifles or shotguns. No nukes.

Not "what do you carry"? But, if you had a choice, what would you bring to the fight.

And one caveat. You must presently own that handgun.

Multiple attackers, you're forced into confrontation, you can only take a handgun (no subguns, rifles, or shotguns).

Easy choice: SV double-stack. 40SW loaded long to 10mm power with 180gr Gold Dots. 20+1 capacity. Recoils like a 9mm.

Sig 220 with as many extra loaded mags as I could carry.

That is if I were FORCED to defend myself against several attackers with a pistol.

I would of course always prefer a rifle.

Pistols are just long bayonets.

The standard Sig mags. for the 226 9mm hold 13 rounds.
I have some aftermarket mags which I can squeeze 15 rnds into - but my experience of reliability of those mags. has not been good. Have you really tried seriously using those mags?

Same here.
I've got 12 15rnd mags for them, so I'm pretty much good to go.
Link Posted: 10/29/2004 11:07:20 AM EST
Need help guys. Do I go with the H&K USP.45 with 10 round mags or the Sig P226 with 15 round mags? Assume identical proficiency with both and equal amount of ammo.

I'll be honest...I thought about this after reading the "Why Should I Get a 1911" thread.

If I had to depend on a pistol, I would grab this one:


Link Posted: 10/29/2004 11:08:45 AM EST
[Last Edit: 10/29/2004 11:58:15 AM EST by newbushmaster]
A F/A AR15 pistol, if the threat is under 40 yards.
Or a Micro Uzi in 10mm.
Or an SP89 converted to 10mm.



Edit. If I had to use one I own, it would be my 226. Its hard to argue with two rounds to the head at 30 yards. It's almost as accurate as my Les Baer Monolith, and since it is about shot placement and a follow up shot, 9mm would do.
Link Posted: 10/29/2004 11:08:49 AM EST
Sig P229 .40

No question about it.

Didn't know they made 13 rd mags for the P226 in 9mm. All mine are 15 rders.

To answer the question... HK USP 9mm w/15 rders, or Walther P99 w/16 rders or the backup SW99 compact in 40.

You are 100% incorrect. I only own sig factory mags (and a lot of them) and they are definitely 15 rounders.

Perhaps you are thinking of the 228/229 in 9mm? Those are 13 rounds.

You don't know what gun you carry? or don't know how many rounds it holds? Either is pretty scary IMO.

Who needs a pussy round like 45ACP anyway?
