    I'm fairly certain the bad guy is not gonna care what lead is flying at him, he's going home one way or another.

    How about the High Point 9mm. I saw some torturer testing videos and the gun still fired. I would never do that to any of my weapons.

    They go bang when you pull the trigger...very heavy pistols and cheap to purchase. I fired a buddies in 9mm and I swear it weighed three pounds. It was accurate too.

    Vintage Star .45acps, were strong and 100% reliable. You could feed them any type of .45acp round and they would gobble them up. One of the many mistakes I made in my younger years was to sell off the two I had. The modern Star is also a great weapon but the older models were stellar!

    Charter Arms Bull Dogs in .44spl & .38spl were and still are very much under rated.

    Now days, basically any snub nose .38 spl. Great reliable weapons!

    Try the 1910 Glisenti. I have about ten boxes (50-round boxes) of ammo through mine and I find it deadly accurate, completely reliable, easy to maintain, and very ergonomic. Plus, the safety is either-hand and dunce-proof.

    I agree that the high point is very under rated

    Have to agree with CJ_56 about the Taurus PT-145. Highly underrated and all around terrific pistol, especially with such a low price point.
    Tokarevs as well. 7.62x25 is a surprisingly stout round.
    Hi-Points, big, ugly, inexpensive and utterly reliable. You can't kill them.

    The cz-82 in 9x18 is my choice.This was used by military and police for over 20 years.The 9x18 is a potent small round.especially using hornady critical defense rounds.I paid 150 for it used and has a 12+1 capacity.A surplus one in excellent condition can be bought for 229.95 and it is C&R eligible.

    yup! CZ makes great stuff for sure, they shoot reliable and accurate.

    NAA .22 mag or variants, tons of different ones but for a 1" barrel in a gun that fits in the palm of your hand, it's pretty potent in the mag. Got the PUG as my BUG; not accurate but it is loud as hell and .22 mag ain't no slouch.

    The ones with longer barrels would deliver an even better punch!

    I was very pleasantly surprised at the quality and finish on mine, nice little firecracker. you can also shoot .22LR/.22mag from the mag frames if you get a cylinder for each.

    I carried a NAA mini Mag. in my vest as a back up weapon as a deputy sheriff. fun little gun that eventually became part of a trade.
