    Single shot - that's all!

    For no reason, other than this is my thread and I say that your only carry piece is a single shot - ''something''!! What would you choose?

    We know size matters But we'll permit you anything large that can still realistically be concealed. Your main choice will be the platform (real or imagined) and your selection of caliber - and why??? Then - how might you expect to exploit to fullest potential.

    Hahahaha - another crazy P95 wierd thread! :poke:


    I will go for a T/C Contender in 45-70 and just a 10" barrel - it'll sit on my hip in a suitable rig. The one round will be a hot load with 405 cast bullet - and I'll draw and fire (thumbing back hammer as I do) - and take just that smidgeon longer to aim so that the bullet goes to useful territory. We are I'll permit - thinkin' pretty close range here.

    (Oh - for my shot rule #4 is fine - no one behind the BG - cos sure as heck this sucker is gonna over penetrate!)

    Crazy? Probably - but my thread - my rules!

    Cool Chris

    Wait until the second Bad Guy stands behind the first & THEN SHOOT & you'll drop them both.

    Since you didn't say nothin' about it having to be legal...a 12-gauge with the barrel cut down to about 10-12", with the stock sawn off at the pistol-grip, and loaded with 00-buck.

    My thoughts Exactly.

    Way back when,the USN had a pistol flare launcher that would chamber and fire a 12ga round. It was carried in A/C for emergencies. It was highly prized and very tradeable. It was 'bout the size of a Desert Eagle ,but with a shorter bbl. That,with #4 buck should do the trick. Legal to carry ??? ---------

    14" .30-30 is the biggest barrel I have for my Contender.


    My choice is the Thunder .50 BMG.

    I think Matt has it - and I should have thought of that - yep, cut down 12G - should be ''useful'' Biggrin:

    I had a Magnum Research Lone Eagle in .308. With spitzers, it would be pretty devastating, close in; Match Kings would stop the fight at 300 yds. But that might be a bit "challenging" in a SD legal defense.......

    .50cal BP Derringer. Large cal ball and lots of flame, and even more smoke(so I can do my "Ninja Vanish" routine)
