When your enemy comes.........what gun do you hope he's holding?


January 10, 2003, 06:58 AM
Or, in other words, what's the worst POS gun you've ever had the misfortune to own, buy, trade, give away or use for a doorstop?:neener:

Jennings? Lorcin? RG?

Hm. No-- they have a nasty habit of working for the first shot.

Maybe American Derringer Corp? The trigger pulls are so hard, they'd never get it shot, and would have difficulty hitting anything they tried to shoot at.

My personal experience with TEC-9s was so unfavorable, I might hope for that. Unreliable, inaccurate, and lends itself to being fired from the hip, or sideways from overhead.

Anything gangstas like, so's they'll shoot it in the above-described manner. (Yo?)

I hope he's holding a cap-'n-ball pistol and has forgotten to put on the caps!

January 10, 2003, 07:11 AM
Airsoft would be good.

January 10, 2003, 07:28 AM
The empty one.

Airsoft would be good. Now there's a good answer!

I was thinking, "Doesn't matter as long as it's a .25 acp," but "Airsoft" beats that all to bits...

If I know in advance he is coming, it doesn't matter what he is holding. They can bury it with him.

January 10, 2003, 08:19 AM
A rubber band gun.:cool:

One of Colt's "smart" guns. While he is dialing the 800 number for customer service I'll be headed the other way. By the time he tells the rep I've got an error message on my new gun I'll be at home relaxing.

Hopefully he'll be holding and waving a white flag. Anything else means war.

What Golgo said.

Maybe the old RG .22LR revolver I once had. Fired a full box of ammo, never hit the 9" paper plate from 5 yds. Wasn't heavy enough to be a good throwing weapon, either.

Therefore I will still be justified in using lethal force....

Provided he's carrying a real gun, I have two choices:

1. I hope he's packing a big powerful handgun that packs a lot of recoil, and he's somebody who doesn't shoot much but thinks a big bullet with lots of power will see him through.

2. I hope he's carrying a fully automatic weapon and thinks that it's impossible to miss with one, that you don't even have to worry about aiming or even pointing well.


January 10, 2003, 12:23 PM
Are you kidding me?

If i know he's coming... hmm... how 'bout an MP5 suppressed? Talk about winning the spoils of war! :D

If i'm surprised... Any handgun would be preferable to any carbine/rifle/shotgun.


January 10, 2003, 12:42 PM
The NIB one I tried at the local shop had the slide retainer fall out the first time I racked the slide so the slide flew off and the spring jammed it at an odd angle.

Plus the fit between the slide and frame was so off that it felt like it was made from sandpaper.

I handed the gun "kit" back to the store owner and she put it in a bag to return to the wholesaler.

That's quality for ya!

January 10, 2003, 01:45 PM
Any gun that is held in the ever so popular "gangster" style! Preferable if they have another high quality AR or AK slung over their sholder that will be lost when they fall...

One that does not work.

He's probably gonna have a Glock. Thank goodness, he'll touch the trigger and it'll go off before he ever gets it out of his waistband! :D

Golgo-13,If I know in advance he is coming, it doesn't matter what he is holding. They can bury it with him.Ya got cojones grandes, muchacho!:cool:

January 10, 2003, 02:30 PM
Assuming it's a gun that will actually fire, I guess I'd be most willing to take mu chances against one of those NAA mini revolvers chambered in 22 short only.

If I had to.

When your enemy comes.........what gun do you hope he's holding?

A Glock.....pointed sideways Gangsta style!

January 10, 2003, 03:34 PM
It was one of the off brands (Jennings or something similar), 25 knock-off of a PPK. The spring that kept the trigger gaurd in the "firing" position was shot, but I didn't think much of that. Touch off the first round, and watch the slide go sailing downrange...

That's what I want 'em carrying. Then I oly have to worry about the first round (which, given that I've never heard of a 25 that could hit the barn), I should be fairly safe...

January 10, 2003, 03:35 PM
Any RG in 22 short would be my pick for gangsta popgun POC.

January 10, 2003, 07:03 PM
gburner, you left out...oh, wait; you didn't leave out anything. :D

The detectives' gun from "Who Framed Roger Rabbit". With the Dum dums!

January 10, 2003, 09:47 PM
A Glock pointed sideways, and angled slightly down, with his bandana so far down over his eyes he can barely see where he's going, and his pants so low on his hips that they depart his mostly-uncovered boxers on those few final inches to the ground, thereby tripping him...:banghead:

January 10, 2003, 09:51 PM

I hope he's holding a tactical carnation...

January 11, 2003, 01:09 AM
A Glock with one of those .22 conversion kits on it that hasn't been fired - have yet to see one that really functions before it is broken in - but since they usually fire the first shot - I would also hope he had found a way to jam a regular Glock mag in it - don't know if you could insert the reg mag with the conversion slide on it though.

Failing that, one of those NA .22 revolvers, hard to aim cock and fire under stess

Failing that a .22 Ruger SA revolver I owned that the cylinder pin would invariably slip out/loose on and bind the cylinder

or a Beretta .22 that my wife once owned, that would often fail to feed and was as inaccurate as all get out.

I would prefer to be armed with a rifle - Garand, Colt AR15, AK47 and see him at a range of 100 to 200 yards

or failing that a shotgun and 100 to 50 yards

or failing that a 1911 and 50 to 25 yards

or failing that a Glock or Browning HP in 9mm and 25 to 15 yards.

When your enemy comes.........what do you hope he's holding?

His hands in the air! :neener:

Ooops, I forgot the gun in the previous question, sorry.

In that case....

A handgun at anything over 100 yards, providing I have a rifle.

A SKS or AK if a rifle at over 200 yds, and I have my M-1.

A mini-14 with cheap aftermarket mags.

Any rifle that can't hold 'minute of barn' accuracy, even better would be one that couldn't hit the broad side of a barn from the inside.

Empty (non-working, broken, jammed...)

A semi-auto pistol with missing mag and mag disconnect.
