OK Gun Slot users, here is the stone cold skinny (see the question at the end)...

The year is 1929. You wake up in the morning and enter the kitchen for a cup of coffee where you find your spouse wrestling on the floor with an unplugged toaster! Your loved one is fighting for their life. You quickly jump to their aid and you take note of the strange mechanical arms which have unfolded from the sides of the toaster. As you wrestle this possessed contraption, it lets loose of your spouse and turns its full rage onto you! You are suffering terrible burns on your hands and the razor sharp claws are cutting you as it thrashes for your throat! By a stroke of luck, you roll to your right where the pantry door was left open and your spouse slams the door closed on the arm of this deranged bread heater, trapping the rest of it's body in the pantry. You jump to your feet and continually slam your full weight into the door until the mechanical arm severs from the rest of this evil machine and the door fully closes. You then wedge a chair under the door knob to secure this ungodly demon from escaping. As this energetic little bastard bounces and scrapes against the door, your spouse turns on the radio. In the distance, you can hear subtle screams all over the neighborhood. As the two of you tune in and catch a news bulletin you hear the following...

"...these killing machines have been terrorizing American homes all morning! No one is safe! All across the US we are getting reports of Killer Robot Appliances. No one knows exactly how many there are or how many they have killed. Police are warning people to beware of any electric appliance in their home or any where else! Wait what's that? No, no, aaaaaaaaggghgghhgh!!!!" *Clunk* *Clunk* *CLUNK* *radio fuzz*

You say "Holy smokin' tobacco! What to we do?!!!"

QUESTION:

What pre-1929 gun do you think would be best for touring around town to save everyone you can and why?

I'm Surprised!

CW, I wouldn't have guessed that for you if you gave me 20 tries. Great Choice! I didn't figure you for a semi auto! I would have guessed a lever action rifle or a heavy caliber wheelie from you.

I could have said a B A R.
I do (or did ) own a 1911 Colt
Gold Cup Match 45 ACP which
I love. My bro has it now, long story.
For everyday carry I would prefer
a revolver but if I'm going into battle
I wouldn't mind a 45 auto

1911

The 1911 is a solid choice! I'm jealous of your brother.

I'd have to go with a 30-06 B.A.R. just in case I run into an Angry Refrigerator.

Id have the Thompson M1A along with a Colt 1911. By the way the gold cup colt wasnt around back then, thats a fairly new one. You could have a regular colt 1911 though. There ya go! MY primary would be the thompson M1A and the Colt 1911 for my back up.. They are both 45 auto so Id only need one type of ammo.

Come to think of it, that may be easy ammo to come by too. Great thinking!

the simi auto even though I prefer a wheel gun

killer toaster?

ok, i gotta get in on this one. pre 1929 was a long time ago, before my time even and i am older than dirt according to my kids. i don't think they loaded the .45's as heavy as they do now do they? but that is probably my choice. 1911 and tommy gun..... that could mess up a toasters day. ( i think ) a bar would be nice but it's kinda big and heavy to be running around town with. and getting on multiple targets fast might be another issue. shorter bareled tommy gun would be quicker. i'm thinking it would be close quarter combat and you want to be fast on target. where is Orsen Wells when you need him?

Orsen "Rambo" Wells

Well played sir. I think your right on with the close quarters combat. Toasters aren't too dangerous from a distance right?

I'd go with...

a Winchester model 94, I think. My girlfriend's dad has one and it packs a punch. But then again, you could always use a Machete to cut the power cord to the damn thing and save your ammo. Sometimes the low tech solution is worthwhile too. =)

Alright, nice selection! I was wondering if someone would weigh in with a lever action.
