    Napoleon Dynamite is on meth, holding Beetlejuice’s girlfriend hostage and you have one shot at his gourd at 25 yards to save the day.

    Without a doubt, my P220 45 ACP shooting Speer Gold Dot 200gr +P. The most accurate handgun/load combination I’ve ever shot.

    My edc "Buddy", a snubby 686 would have no problem with a brain shot at 25yards using SA mode. This sort of scenario is one reason why I prefer a high quality revolver with a superb light crisp SA as well as a good DA. I couldn't do that shot reliably at 25 yards DA.

    500 smith and wesson.

    Sometimes you need to sacrifice one to save many.



    Edit:
    (That was a joke)

    2011 10 mm 1911 double stack, the most accurate and dependable pistol I have ever owned!

    686 FTW!
    I would prefer a target hammer, target trigger 6" at 25 yds over a snub, but no matter. BJ GF is good to go.

    Stoked with Mk 262, just to make sure... though shouldn't Beetlejuice be taking care of HIS OWN girlfriend instead of dumping the problem in MY lap like he thinks he's my mother or something?

    Nothing says :
    "I told you to let that girl go" like :
    30 grains of 2f and a .454 round ball from a Colt's Dragoon...or
    One nicely placed .530 round ball from my .54 caliber pistol

    Failing that I'd use a 230 grain Speer Gold Dot in .45acp from my Colt Series '70

    Nothing. Before I pull the pistol out, the ghost with the most will scare the life out of him.

    Okay, I looked up FTW and got that. But I cant find this other stuff. Too many letters. More English words needed.

    S&W 1911, 230gr Speer Hold Dot. Like others have said, it would be advantageous to have an SA trigger pull for a shot like that.

    I’ve made a similar shot (on steel, 6” circle at 25 yards, timed <5 seconds, from low ready. ironsman.com Try it!) with my M&P 9 as well, but would still prefer the nice single action 1911 trigger pull...
