Only one handgun.

You only have the choice of one handgun and it is all out war with the zombies. What would it be and in what caliber? I am going with a Glock 21sf .45acp.

GLOCK 17 in just about any situation, but I'd be hard pressed to bring along only one firearm, much less a lonely pistol.

I'd atleast have a carbine of some type, and maybe a back-up pistol, but that's just me.

I'll go with a Lahti. I would use it primarily to shoot every one of these threads, and then the entire WWYD section of the Forum.

Beat me to it.

Two available but not extremly common calibers.

Although I have seen a single shot Derringer that takes either .410 or .45LC that I liked...

The Judge has pretty poor performance with .410 buck, which pretty much negates its appeal over, say, a .44mag. It's a range toy.

Calico .22 pistol with 100rd helico magazine. When head shots count and their faces are all gooey, why not go for awhile and not have to reload or be offset by the recoil for followup shots. Plus, you can carry thousands of .22lr on your person when compared to the hundreds of rounds of .45acp. Also, .22lr is everywhere and running out of ammo will be less of a worry.

I laughed at this...
I can carry 5,000 rounds of .22LR for your 400 rounds of .45 or 9MM.

But if this a defend point (like home). I'll go 9MM FTW in my Beretta 92FS,
My arm will get sore if I went with the .45.

Plus .22LR is DIRTY!
