I am looking for a pistol that is just an all around good pistol and I don't know what to go with. I like my taurus 99 but the aftermarket support is virtually nonexistent.
I want it to be 9mm.
Any suggestions appreciated I just want to get your guys and gals opinions on some of the best all around pistols

I'm a huge fan of Glocks (dependability wise) and would trust my life on them, same with the Beretta 92/M9. I haven't had enough experience with my Sig yet to determine that but have heard excellent things.

If I found the perfect pistol that was just everything and I fell absolutely in love with prolly. Up to 900-1000 but I definitely wouldn't mind spending less.. and I was looking at p226s awhile back idk what turned me off of them

And I was extremely close to getting a glock but the lack of safety and grip kinda made me think twice

I have a pretty big collection but it sounds like you are kind of asking if you had to pick one... Even though it is not one of my favourites in my collection, and not in my nightstand at night, if I had to "pick one" and make it count, I would probably go Glock.

S&W Revolver for a few reasons:
Great out-of-the-box shooters, low maintenance, long life, and great re-sale value if you move on.

Auto? Probably a Glock. Personally I'm a SIG man, but Glocks are really easy to use and less expensive.

BUT... if you're really going for ZOMBIES then you'll want a suppressed weapon. Gunshots only attract more of the undead horde.

What about Glock's safety system makes you nervous?

TRIGGER SYSTEM
The “Safe Action” system is a partly tensioned firing pin lock, which is moved further back by the trigger bar when the trigger is pulled.
When the trigger is pulled, 3 safety features are automatically deactivated one after another. When doing so, the trigger bar is deflected downward by the connector and the firing pin is released under full load. When the trigger is released, all three safety features re-engage and the GLOCK pistol is automatically secured again.

Whats wrong with their safety system? Its the user's lack of trigger discipline that will determine their "safety". With that said I would go with a Glock 17/19/34.

Based on that statement, stick to:

Beretta 92
Glock 17 or 19.
Sig 226/229
S&W M&P 9

While there are others that may have better than average support, I feel that the above excel at option availability, and which one you choose will depend on other criteria, like ergonomics, da/sa vs constant, or price.

Good luck!

Glock 17 or 19. Love that light weight polymer. I like the idea of not having to worry about frame rusting except for the slide in an Apocolypse scenario.

ZombieTactics
09-11-2010, 3:42 PM
My favorite 9mm pistol is the Ruger SR9c, but we're talking about the inevitable zombpocalypse here, so a lot of factors come int play.

My personal choice for the zombpocalypse is a Glock22. Yes, that's a .40S&W, not a 9mm, but it's in such wide use by LE that it seems the obvious choice.

Get a LoneWolf 40-to-9 conversion barrel and Glock17 magazines, and it becomes your ultimate Z-Day 9mm choice. Switch twixt .40 and 9mm as circumstances dictate and/or time allows.

Glock hands down for a shtf handgun. Simple reliable and I wouldn't mess with 9mm either. I would go straight to 40 since that seems to be what the majority of le have gone to.

But no matter what others say you need to see what you shoot best and like. For me I shoot H&K's best and they are my favorites thats why I own one in addition to my glock.

Check out the PMR-30, I think if it were zombies that required a headshot this would be it. 31rds of .22 mag cant go wrong with that, go right through some zombie skulls. But I dont think this gun is CA legal. Thats another thing, if zombies come to cali the majority of us are gonna be screwed with low cap magazines, so i suppose the gun really wouldnt matter.

As many others have said, find what works best for you. My personal vote would be for a Glock 19C, 17C, or 34 depending what your primary use is/goals to accomplish with said pistol. I don't personally own a 9mm Glock, yet, but I do have the 23C, 22C, 35 and love them all. Glocks are relatively inexpensive, light, reliable, and although I don't "beat" them if they get dropped/scratched/etc... I don't feel as bad if it were one of my Sigs or 1911's.

jumpthestack
09-11-2010, 6:18 PM
If you feel you want a safety, M&Ps are inexpensive, reliable, can be had with a thumb safety. There's a decent amount of parts available and the Apex sear and striker block are like a drop in trigger job.

09-11-2010, 6:19 PM
If you could only have one pistol it should not be the underpowered 9mm, however if you must have a 9mm then for God sake make it a double action, stay away from the Glock which is in fact a single action! I would first choose a revolver for several reasons 1) you might only have one hand available (carrying a baby etc..) if you have a miss fire just pull the trigger again. 2) there is never a failure to eject. 3)With ALL semi autos the only round you can be sure of is the first round. I Prefer the s&w 625jm which is a .45acp double action 6 shot revolver with moon clips. If you must have an auto loader then you should consider the HK P9S which can be had in 9mm or .45acp. The price for these two fine pistols might be a bit steep but then again whats your life worth.

Nice first post, guess my 25000 rounds through my 19 I must be coming up to the point when mine kills me. Guess I will sell it now :rolleyes: Guns are as safe as the shooter makes them. If we are talking zombie land, Glock FTW, lots of spare parts from other shooters and cops, simple design for newbies to use and if you actually learned to do 1 handed manipulations you would know that you can overcome obstacles from your gun training page.

As far as revilvers, how you going to reload that revolver with one hand holding the baby. Hope you don't need more than 6 shots, guess you have never bent a crane, guess you have never short stroked a revolver out of timing, but you must be right, check the sales forums for my glocks shortly :rolleyes:

Good grip on the glocks....

You can pimp your glock....

Notice the Lonewolf barrel in my G20..?..Lead no problem.

On my Glock 21's I shoot lead in the glock barrel...just clean it after 200 rounds...no problems.

If you don't have your first GLOCK yet...get a Glock 19 as the first one.

A perfect weapon.

Im not a glock fanboi but ide have to say Glock 17 w/standard 17 rnd mags in this situation and the OP wanting 9mm. Its the perfect size, not too big, not too small. After I added some better sights to my G17 RTF2 it shoots soo accurate. I was hitting stuff after a few tries past 50 yards.

I purchased a new Beretta M9 today at the gun show in Phoenix. But I havent had any trigger time with the M9 or any beretta to say the least so I cant say much about it yet, other then it feels awsome in my hand, and the trigger feels awsome too. (i know the Army claims 1 malfunction every 17k rounds which is pretty impressive if true)

Kelvrick
09-11-2010, 10:42 PM
Failing to read the rest of the thread, glock 19. Glocks and 9mm is popular, so ammunition as well as spare parts/magazines should be readily available.

I myself don't have any and don't personally like how they feel, but I think they're dependable and you said zombie/apocalypse, not just shtf, get out of dodge where you don't have to worry about extra long-term thinking.

I am not a fan of the 9mm but if I had to have a 9mm I would make sure that it was reliable.. which most are these days anyway.. and...

That is was the most accurate 9mm I could find with the most heft for recoil recovery.

That would mean that I would want a sig or an HK. The 92 would be a good third choice tied with an EAA witness or CZ.

I was that way until I bought a Glock. Now I have complete confidence in the system and would not hesitate to carry one.

The best safety is the area between your ears. Manual safeties only complicate matters under stress and can lead to bad things.

There is no "best", but there are some great choices. I would go with: your favorite flavor of Glock; a .357 revolver; a 1911 in .45acp; or a Hi Point C9 (yeah that's right, I said Hi Point....what now haters?)

ALL are dependable, accurate, and easy to use. But remember, the best defense against Zombies is cremation....burn your loved ones before they come back to eat your brains!!!!

There is no "best", but there are some great choices. I would go with: your favorite flavor of Glock; a .357 revolver; a 1911 in .45acp; or a Hi Point C9 (yeah that's right, I said Hi Point....what now haters?)

ALL are dependable, accurate, and easy to use. But remember, the best defense against Zombies is cremation....burn your loved ones before they come back to eat your brains!!!!
Who cares what you have, just learn how to use it. My ammo total from practice this year is 10K+(I reload and buy cheap AK ammo on sale). Practice make perfect, or close to it....Anyhow, who's setting up the next NorCal Zombie Shoot..Gio??

Big holes over small holes, zombies bleed out faster through big holes and a 9mm makes a very small hole. Shot placement is key, however your target will not stand still for you like your paper target at the range. If you must use 9mm then move out of Cali and get some hi-cap mags as you will need them.

Below you will find a link about shot placement and the amount of lead needed to stop a zombie, it is very enlightening and easy reading.

If you could only have one pistol it should not be the underpowered 9mm, however if you must have a 9mm then for God sake make it a double action, stay away from the Glock which is in fact a single action!

If you plan on disagreeing about the glock info please read the following link first before you make a fool of yourself.

http://members.cox.net/guntraining/glocks.htm

Those are some strong words there. Your only counterpoint to a Glock is that it isn't DAO and you seem to think that's bad because it can't double strike.

I'll take all that Glock has to offer and if I have a bad primer I'll rack the slide...although I've never had a bad primer with premium SD ammo.

Check out the PMR-30, I think if it were zombies that required a headshot this would be it. 31rds of .22 mag cant go wrong with that, go right through some zombie skulls. But I dont think this gun is CA legal. Thats another thing, if zombies come to cali the majority of us are gonna be screwed with low cap magazines, so i suppose the gun really wouldnt matter.

My firearms will most likely be defense from people who think they are john wayne/rambo/terminator. But that's for another thread

I'm seeing most votes for glock which makes me think
But the XD is still appealing and if those sigs are still available for 500 our whatever on a trade they are still in the running..

Many “documentaries” has shown that the shotgun is the most effective DZSG (Designated Zombie Survival Gun), so if we are limited to handguns, maybe the Taurus Judge be a good choice as a DZSG handgun in the foretold Zombie Apocalypse.

Any reasoning for suggesting a P2000 over a USc 9/40?

I can think of reasons, and they're all the usual ones: Better ergo, ambidextrous (incase you're sharing with a lefty), blah blah. I bought a P2000 as my first gun because I wasn't sure how I was going to end up shooting being cross-eye dominant. But now that I know...I might get a UPSc. I know I'd get a UPSc 45 over an H45c due to attachment issues. (Oh and Surefire can we get a DG6 for the P2000 already?)

As for the OPs question, I would say: the best gun is the one you shoot well. I went to the store sure I wanted a P226. It's what the Seals carry! They're NINJAS! It has a .22LR conversion kit for training. On paper it was the one to get.

Then I held it. It just didn't work in my hand. My fingers are too short I guess - can't reach the controls. (I got the trigger fine, but my thumb had issues with the other bits.) I held a USPc - it fit my hand great. As did the P2000. So I ended up with the HK. A gun is like a shoe...if it fits, it fits. If it doesn't then you'll just hurt yourself trying to make it work.

I think that a 22 would be fine for head shots.. you can also carry a lot of 22 ammo. I would suggest a 6 or 10 shot smith and wesson K22 revolver. I would not trust any semi auto because when you need to shoot.. well.. no excuses and no do overs.

Glock and/or .38/.357 revolver.

That's it. No more lame ideas. Thread's done.

Now to more pressing issues like -

Which .22 should I buy?
Should I use W748 or H335?
I need a scope, which one?
Is a pump or semi-auto shotgun better?
Rem 870 or Moss 590?
Why are they guys at <shop-x> such dilrods?
My GF/Wife says I have $500 to spend. What should I get?
Why is my Mosin so heavy?

Wow 2 posts and hardly a useful fact,but full of misinformed information. You realize nobody but a fanboy can take what this dude says seriously. It has exactly ZERO data to back up the claims.4-5 shots of 9mm to equal one 45. Not only is this guy bad at math but completely out of touch with modern bullet designs and there capabilities. You go ahead and aim for the armpit and ill put 65 9mm rounds in center mass, cause apparently thats "what it takes" hahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If I have a 40 or 45 I dont need a DA, just on 9mm right. :rolleyes:

stay away from the Glock which is in fact a single action!

In fact it isnt. You obviously are not failure with how a Glock functions or the difference between DA and SA. It may not fit the classic definitions of either but it is closer to being a DA then anything else. Its striker is partially cocked by the cycling action and requires the trigger to be pulled to retract the striker far enough to have enough energy to reach and depress the primer. A Single-action semi-automatic pistol require that the hammer be fully cocked before the first round can be fired and the trigger is in no way responsible for completing this action.

If a Glock was SA when you pulled the trigger the striker wouldnt even have enough energy to reach or depress the primer let alone get past the safety features.

If you plan on disagreeing about the glock info please read the following link first before you make a fool of yourself.

http://members.cox.net/guntraining/glocks.htm


blah blah blah. Another random article by a wanna be selling classes out of his home...... But but I read it on the internet..... it must be true.


Anyway to the OP. The G17 or 19 would be my choice. It has an unmatched reputation for dependability and reliability, has a very large aftermarket and 9mm cost are low compared others. It would allow you to practice much more.

headshots are what count on zombies! No recoil and 30+1 rounds of ammo that fit in somewhere between a 9mm and AR-15 rifle round. And the gun weighs less than Glocks of its size... What's not to like? :shrug:

No real reason. I have both and consider them very similar, but I like the ergos of the P2000 more. The OP did ask for a 9mm, so the USP40c would not fit the question.

I have all sorts of handguns and for the longest time never owned a 9mm. Until I notice bulk Winchester White Box 9mm for $16 and change at Wal-Mart. So I picked up a SS Ruger P95. My P95 has digested over a thousand rounds of ammo without issue and is minute of zombie accurate.

The 22 magnum or five seven make sense but they are semi autos and can fail.

A rifle or shotgun is probably a better choice for most of the time. A revolver for backup.
