Let's say hypothetically, your allowed to take a 9mm handgun with you to a war zone. What would you take?

I've normally been a Sig 226 person, but I'm open to other options.

Glock 17
Link Posted: 1/25/2006 2:26:42 PM EST
None of the above.
I wanna BHP!

It's really hard to beat a Glock 17/19 for outright simplicity. I'd want one of them if I couldn't have a .45.
Link Posted: 1/25/2006 2:33:50 PM EST
I think I would want a 1911 .45acp in a war zone. To each his/her own.........
Link Posted: 1/25/2006 2:52:27 PM EST
+1 for .45 ACP 1911
Link Posted: 1/25/2006 2:57:52 PM EST
9mm is better than .45!

If I had to take a 9 it ould be a Glock 17. Reliable, holds lots fo rounds and takes a beating. 1st choice would be a Glock 21 if amo was available.

why can't people answer simple questions. given the choices i'll take the glock, and won't push a 1911 agenda.

The question became "not simple" when someone suggested taking a switch to a bear fight

I'd be fine with any of those, but would choose a Glock 19. I just don't like the grip on the G-17.

Link Posted: 1/25/2006 4:02:53 PM EST
G19 or tuned Browning half power.
Link Posted: 1/25/2006 4:10:09 PM EST
I'll be the wacko that asks for the 226.
Link Posted: 1/25/2006 4:14:24 PM EST
You would be well served with any of those pistols...
Link Posted: 1/25/2006 4:22:12 PM EST
Link Posted: 1/25/2006 4:22:12 PM EST
G-17, hands down without a doubt.

Yes Alex, I will take "questions I can't answer properly for $200"

Glock 17

18 rounds better than 7 on a 1911
Link Posted: 1/25/2006 4:43:02 PM EST
Glock 17

I would really like a 22!!!
Link Posted: 1/25/2006 4:52:24 PM EST
SIG 226, although I'd rather step up from 9mm to the SIG 220.

If it had to be a 9mm my list would be very short:

Glock 17/19/34.

A .45 5" 1911 would be my first pick every time.
Link Posted: 1/25/2006 6:28:22 PM EST
If i had to use a 9mm , it would be a G-17
Link Posted: 1/25/2006 7:22:26 PM EST
[Last Edit: 1/25/2006 7:23:08 PM EST by MaverickMkii]
G17 (with 3.5# connector)
Link Posted: 1/25/2006 7:33:42 PM EST
in a war - G17

ammo no issue - G20 - one hard hitting sum bitch.... I could bring the 6 inch barrel (to stay legal in NC) and deer hunt with it if rations were running low.
Link Posted: 1/25/2006 7:38:59 PM EST
I would trust an HK long before a Glock. But this thread implies that you have a choice, and if that were the case, I wouldn't carry a 9mm in combat. I would go without if I still had a choice, but 9mm was the only option available. Someone else said this before, but why carry a .45 set to stun?

Whichever I can get parts for the easiest.

A working handgun beats a non-working handgun every time. (Likewise, a handgun you can get ammo for always beats one you can’t get ammo for.)

Barring the parts/ammo issue, I’d probably go for the Glock (despite being a big SIG fan) simply because it’s lighter and not likely to be your primary firearm anyway.

The reality is that any of the handguns listed would be fine in the hands of someone who knows how to use them. There’s nothing magic about any of them – they’re all just bullet launchers.

USP 9mm only if there was no USP .45 or 1911 option.
Link Posted: 1/26/2006 2:18:20 PM EST
Of your choices I'd go with the Sig P226.
Link Posted: 1/26/2006 2:26:22 PM EST
Sig, hands down.
Link Posted: 1/26/2006 2:36:44 PM EST
Glock 17 please.


Link Posted: 1/26/2006 2:43:30 PM EST
USP, mine has been 100 % reliable for over 10 years.
Link Posted: 1/26/2006 2:48:10 PM EST
I'm a mutant and chose the CZ75 even though I carried a Glock 17 for quite a while in Iraq.
I like the idea of being able to carry cocked and locked.
The major downside to the CZ75 is you can't get a Safariland 6004 for it.
Link Posted: 1/26/2006 4:08:09 PM EST
What about a G18?

Jk, g17 will do.

+1 70+ years and going strong can't be wrong.

HK USP would be my preference. I wouldn't bitch if "all I had" was a Glock though.
Link Posted: 1/26/2006 4:45:05 PM EST
Sig 226
Link Posted: 1/26/2006 5:51:26 PM EST
I picked CZ75. Dead nuts reliable. Very Accurate. Points oh so well.
Link Posted: 1/26/2006 5:55:39 PM EST
Glock 17/19.
Link Posted: 1/26/2006 6:07:58 PM EST

Glock 19 here, too. With night sights.

Link Posted: 1/26/2006 7:52:49 PM EST
anybody who does not trust glock should talk to Bigbore
Link Posted: 1/26/2006 8:45:15 PM EST
I'll take the Beretta 92. I'm proficient with it and have carried it in harms way many times. Only one that I haven't shot in a combat zone from the list is the HK USP. Did however have the MK 23 on the range with the M11, CZ75, and Glock 19. I'll stick with the Beretta its accurate enough for me to engage 100m targets.

CZ75 or the Glock.

The ony two guns I shot from the list, and I own a CZ75 therefore I know its functions very well.

USP 9mm.

Can't really understand any reason for taking ANY of the other handguns listed in that poll.

And yes, I own all of them except for the Glock. The USP is the most accurate, you can carry it cocked and locked, it has a standard grip angle, and its as reliable, if not more so, than every other handgun on that list.

The USP is THE combat handgun. Thats what it was designed for, and it does it the best IMHO.

M9, mine worked the first time I was over in Iraq.
