What would you say is the best side arm? The one-shot kill M1911/Revolver? Or the G17 for it's large mag? Or maybe the PDW? What is your favorite sidearm? I currently have a silenced M9 and a PDW.

My fave would be the 1911, then PDW, revolver, G17, and Mak.

G17 used to be my fave but I put 13 rounds in a guys chest point blank in the barracks once and he still managed to kill me before he bled out. :(
We are alpha testers testing a mod. You didn't pay for this game, even if you bought Arma2 to only play DayZ. Stop whining the bugs aren't getting fixed fast enough. Pretty please with beans on top?

I'd definetly say that 1911 beats all other guns.
Yeah, It's one shot and getting ammo for it is easy. :)

1911 purely because there is so much ammo available . Plus its handy being able to one shot zed's when in a tight spot !

1911, best gun in the game for stopping power, volume, and number of rounds. Funny how a military sim could be so accurate. The 1911 is my favorite pistol to fire in real life, and in DayZ too.

i'd say revolver or 1911 one shot infected is priceless and ammo is quite common..also SD it's good..but nowadays i have to say makarov because it's a couple of lives that i manage to find just that..

Plus, you cant beat how badass a 1911 looks. It's like it wears badass sunglasses and smokes Marlboros when it's not fucking shit up.

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.

1911 as It has an Extra bullet, not as loud as the revolver and it's one shot to zombies but the 1911 beats the Revolver mainly because of the noise it makes.

I like the m9 sd cuz of the quick silent kill when using your primary would cause problems but ya, ammos a bitch now.

I'd go with a Revolver

Revolver.
Pros: Powerfull, Ammo is common, Common gun
Cons: Slow to reload, Loud

pdw and m1911 are tied for me, i like the m1911 because its 1 shot kill, and has common ammo.
the pdw is good because it can do full auto as well as semi-auto, and it can use any 9x19mm magazine, even mp5 mags. plus the pdw is quieter

M1911 / Revolver are great against zeds and players. Don't worry about the ammo, you can convert both Revolver & M1911 ammo. Revolver is more accurate, though has 1 less bullet per clip.
Though, since I'm a sniper, I don't want to get stuck with a Semi Auto pistol if someone sneaks up on me, so I use a PDW.

1911. Plentiful ammo, and one-shots. A great gun.
Day 22. AKS-74 Kobra, M16 ACOG, m1911. Lone wolf Wookie. 312 Zed kills, 175 headshots, 0 player or bandit kills. Looking for a SD M4. Died to artillery.

I use end up using either the revolver or the M1911. However the revolver is my ultimate preference and will drop the M1911 in a second if it means I get my trusty revolver.

I base this decision souly on the range and accuracy of the revolver vs the M1911. The M1911 has a much faster firing rate at semi auto, one more bullet per magazine but when it comes to accuracy the M1911 is all over the place and cannot deliver a non head killshot from more than what seems to be 20 meters.
I prefer to have a weapon that is more reliable and will get the job done with a single shot and hit the mark. I noticed my headshot to kill ratio really drops when I get the M1911 vs the Revolver and I miss a lot more with the M1911 at medium range.

Another bonus for the revolver... The iron sight on it is unbeatable.

1911. Endless Ammo. Have maybe 4-5 Magazines. Reload if you have 1 shot left. Right-Click = Full Revolver SpeedLoader ---> Right Click = Full 1911 Magazine Again.

Infinite Ammo = WIN

Depends on my role in the team:
loner/gunner: revolver ( I just love that extra bit of accuracy - con: the revolver shines through the woods like nothing else)
sniper: PDW

m1911 or m9sd.

PDW is also good because it takes pretty much any ammo you put in there.

Revolver or m9sd.

I would say m1911 but I find the revolver more accurate.
