Ok so if you were back in the old west and had your choice of ANY handgun to date...what would you use if you were a gunfighter?

Browning Automatic Rifle (BAR)

BAR was made famous by Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrows known as Bonnie and Clyde. They were the worst of the worst. John Dillinger once said to reporters "they give bank robbers a bad name". They also wrote a personal letter thanking Henry Ford for making such a reliable car (Model T). One day in may 1934 they were driving their Model T down a Louisiana dirt road when sheriff officers and a Texas Ranger (Frank Hamer) who of course were armed with their own BARs shot and killed Bonnie and Clyde hitting them with each 20 to 30 bullets and riddling their car with at least 120 bullet holes. Lesson learned you live by the gun you die by the gun, so shoot first.


THE END:vcop: :vcop: :vcop: :vcop:

Smith & Wesson Model 58 originally in .41 magnum converted to 44-40. For any of you "real" gunfighters out there, you know why.....................
:rock:

For the rest of you 21st century glock/sig pukes, Cuz it's a fixed-sight, rock solid REVOLVER, that would have ammo available anywhere you wandered back then.
:naughty:

SOT II,

Gotta love some of the absolute silly responses to this hypothetical thread

Hmmm I guess it may depend on the situation you may be in back in the old wild west. Do I have to fight a bunch of thugs in a bar, or am I up against the toughest baddest gunslinger out there? See what I mean? If I am stuck with a hand gun and I have to shoot multiple bad boys as fast as possible I may want to resort to something like a Glock G18c. (full auto baby)

If I am up just against the big bad boy of the west I would want to chose something more apropraite like some sort of SIG like the 226R DAK or Beretta like the classic 93R

The question though was if I could choose any hang gun. I think the only real answer is here I would have to try them all to decide which I liked best :)

....................but its still just a six shooter. Can't beat the speed, capacity, dependability and durability of the Glock. I'll be bringing the 22 to my gun fight.

Posed, a semi-automatic pistol is SLOWER than a revolver because of "reset time" for the slide and the then sear and trigger "reset".

True or not?
