For a pistol...Glock 35...pack it up with an advanced armament suppressor...surefire mounted light...I'd give it the 2+ addition to the mags to fit anywhere from 16 to 30 rounds...change the trigger from a 5.5 or 7 pound trigger to a 2.1 pounder...for that good smoother trigger reset....I'd put on some good grip tape so there wont be any slipping if things get bloody...I'd put on trigicon night sights...custom lone wolf threaded barrel....for improved accuracy....filed mag release...extended slide stop...mag well...rock n roll.
for a knife.....simple..the M4X PUNISHER......google it....it will destrominate.
i would perfer to use the GLOCK 21(45) or the M9(9mm), the G21 would be great for stoping power against the zeds and raiders, the M9 has less stoping power but it would still be good against the undead, it would just take more rounds to stop raiders, i think they would be evenly waighed cause they 45 waighs more then the 9mm and u could carry less then the 9mm but u would have to use more 9mm ammo to take down ur target
in ww1 they made a special stabbing knife for trenches and breaking through skulls its called the series 1 trench knife i have two... they end in a tip the blade isn't sharp and they are a mix with spiked ;knuckles covering the fingers if you hold it like a fancy handle to protect your fingers you know what im saying? it looks like a shank with a spiked finger guard
