.45 ACP. You can use it to hold down the corner of the newspaper on a windy day, prop the barn door open, big enough to use the brass as a drinking cup (preferrably wash it out a bit), and it makes great big gaping holes in folks who are in need of proper ventilation. Also hear it can be used to scare 9mm folks into submissive urination, but dunno if I believe 'Neck on that one just yet... :blink:

Most versatile is probably the 357 magnum. It can be loaded down enough to take rabbits or squirrels with relative ease and quiet or loaded up enough be aan effective self-defense round.

Doug can atest to the accuracy potential of the 38 special as hes is a Bullseye Shooter. 38 wadcutter target rounds through a good magnum revolver presents almost no recoil so it is a great training gun for newbies.

We used to load them with a little Bullseye and a 000 buckshot for plinking and rat shooting.

Warning! Don't try this at home. We were idiots! Well trained idiots but idiots none the less.
We sometimes loaded them with soap by pressing the round into a slightly softened bar of Ivory and have gunfights or quickdraw contests in the barracks. It hurts a lot worse than any paintball I've been hit with.

It makes a good all around choice in my book.

I am still chuckling at slabside's comments. That was just too funny. Of all I've had/have.... versatility..... I would probably choose a 10mm. I know I know.... I am a weirdo.
But....
A. It's hot enough for long distance and energy is great
B. You can load down to that of a light 40 if need be
C. It's primarily a pistol round and not revolver (more capacity)
4. Sonny Crocket used that round in Miami Vice :128:

But the 45 is still my favorite... maybe not as versatile. However, after reading slabside's post I guess it IS!

NO!!!!!!! Every time somebody fires a 10mm a small tear develops in the fabric of the universe...and a kitten dies.

PS - I think all of the earthquakes as of late have been the result of people firing 10mm pistols.

Dunno about 10mm round itself, but a 10mm Glock is the most versatile Glock. 5 different barrel swaps (only .38 super requires mag modification) and 3 slide + mag swaps for a total of 8!!!

I know, I know :OT1:

For handloaders light 44 specials through heavy 44 Mags provides a lot of versatility.

A kid can shoot beer cans all day with a 44 special or I can "make your day" with a hot 44 mag and or go deer hunting

Anyone out there got a S&W Model 29 they wanna sell?

45. it can kill anything from a mouse to a bear. the bear might not like it 2much and take afew chuncks out your rear before he decides to die and the squirril may be kinda busted up but it will work for anything. the best part about the 45 is if the gun breaks you can throw the bullets like rocks and knock out anythign smaller than the bear.l
