  • Been thinking on BOB pistol.

    So I've been thinking on what type of pistol would be most practical to keep in a BOB, and I've come to the conclusion that a revolver would probably keep better loaded for longer. No springs compressed and loosing shape during storage. What are your thoughts?

    I choose Dan Wesson Revolver with 6" an 4" barel and Pachmyer grips. -.357 handles most things well.

      Whatever handgun you choose you should practice with it anyways from time to time, and clean/lube it even if you don't use it, say if you keep one stored and practice with another, so I wouldn't worry about how it keeps loaded.
      So weather you choose a pistol or a revolver would depend on other factors.

        True. And semi-autos are easier to clean when you fill 'em up with mud.

        I'm kind of a revolver guy. Who appreciates semis, also.

          For a dedicated bag or truck gun, I too vote for a revolver, even though my every day carry is a semi.

          I'd suggest a .357, ammo is plentiful and .38 can be used if that is all that is available.

          Additionally, most folks not familiar with firearms can be brought up to speed rapidly with a revolver if you happen to have to enlist or press into service some sheep.

            My Thoughts:
            You need to stop listening to those people promoting JUNK SCIENCE with regards to their ignorance as to the physics of spring metal fatigue.

              yeah, springs don't wear out from sitting loaded. Any wear comes from the cycle of being loaded and unloaded (like bending a paper clip 100 times)

                I HAVE always looked at the BOB concept of what you grab that COMPLIMENTS what you would already have with you or on you when you hit the door.
                THUSLY
                a .22 pistol with a LOT of ammo will complimant the .45 you are carrying and the BOB will also contain extra mags and ammo for the carry gun.

                just my thoughts

                  What type of .22?? Revolver or semi?? I have an old HR 9-shot but not very accurate.

                    I ALWAYS HAd a Ruger .22/45 just because the grip angle is designed to match the 1911 so it has a completely familiar feel.

                      I keep a Smith and Wesson Sigma SW40VE in a Maxpedition Jumbo shoulder bag behind the seat in my pickup at all times. The Sigma has been totally reliable and plenty accurate enough to do the job. I've only got $300 in it with a total of six 14 round magazines, so if something did happen to it, I can absorb the loss. I also have a Mossberg 500 with an 18.5" Accu-choked barrel with a bunch of shotshells, including number six's, buckshot and slugs, all in another shoulder bag in there too. My truck is rarely parked anywhere that someone could easily do a quick break in so I don't worry all that much.
