Pick a 45 for the apocalypse... Login/Join

posted Hide Post
I guess we have different views of the apocalypse. If you say I have to grab a gun and a couple of mags while I wonder the barren wasteland then for sure I'm grabbing an HK. If it has to be .45 then a m23 or an HK45 are the choices and not much to pick between them. But in that scenario it makes absolutely ZERO difference between the above choices. Well maintained all of them will run a couple of mags. Past that though pretty sure of my pistol collection in the grab and go view I would try to grab a P30 since Todd G went 90+K rounds on that. But the absolute end of the earth reliability doesn't mean squat in this. 30K rounds of .45 is like 4.5 tons. So if I can have access to that then I can have a few spare parts too. For the price of one M23 I can have 3-4 G21's to hide. And I can get a full spares kit on top of that delivered to my door tomorrow. I don't know if you own a M23 (I own several) but spares are a bit of an issue. So yup a couple of mags grab the HK. Prepare and plan grab your glock and its spares.

My HK USP 45 Expert. It just fits me well in the hand and shoots oh so well.

It only stands to reason that where there's sacrifice, there's someone collecting the sacrificial offerings. Where there's service, there is someone being served. The man who speaks to you of sacrifice is speaking of slaves and masters, and intends to be the master.

I picked the P220 but only because you didn’t list a B&T APC45.

You forgot the CZ-97b which is the one I’d opt for.

Great to see the P220 in the lead, but I just don't understand why the P227 doesn't get more cred. I mean it's basically a P226 that shoots 10 rounds of 45 ACP. Shoots as well or better than my P220. Also, I would have added the P320 45 onto the list because it shoots every bit as good as the P220 and P227 but in a pinch you could convert it to a 9mm, .40 or 357 sig calber pistol.

The P220 is my favorite gun of all time, so it's an easy choice for me, the 220 would be my choice.

I'd start with my HK Mk23, and I'd pick up the others off bodies of the fallen.


If you really want something you'll find a way ...
... if you don't you'll find an excuse.

I'm really not a "kid" anymore ... but I haven't grown up yet either Wink

Probably the best answer.

Spare parts and ammo? Better have it before the festivities begin. It would be unwise to even ASK people for certain things.....

I voted for the HK45,... but would gladly accept the USP.

It wouldn't be any of the above as .45 ammo is too darn heavy to cart much of it along.

If I was staying home then then probably a pocket gun of decent caliber, a good tactical shot gun, & a high capacity AR style rifle (or 3 or 4 of them) around my place.

If I was headed off across county then for sure a suppressed .22, lots of .22 ammo, & a decent "lightweight" IWB 9mm. (stealth is what I want as I wouldn't want to be noticed, found, or heard).

Suppressed .22 will get me plenty of meals as well as quiet protection.

Why Q? You planning to shuck it at people?


You can only control what you can control. Nothing more. Nothing less.

I don't think there are any bad answers, from your list. I voted for the HK 45, feel well armed (for a handgun) with any of them.

Thank you to everyone who made input. In the end I decided to go with the H&K USP 45 Expert. I ordered one through Buds guns in Lexington and it came pretty darn quick. Now I'll need a shoulder and OWB holster for it.

I wish they would make the Expert model with a P30-like grip. That would be awesome.
