A gun that you could use with or without a silencer to carry out whatever your objectives in the field. It was be neat to see what you pick.
Most of that 007 spy stuff was crapola, Rogue. The intelligence services on both sides were interested only in gathering information on the opposition, not in shooting people. Most did not even carry weapons while in the field. When discovered, spies were usually just arrested and later exchanged for captured members of one's own spy network. Ian Flemming's James Bond makes for nice novels and movies, but it is not really true to life.
