You get to choose your weapon first, any of the three in the title (knife, 3-foot lead pipe, pistol with 1 bullet). What's your selection, and why?
Definitely pistol. Reason being I think it ensure the highest chance of survival.

First, if you pick any of the other two weapons, your survival chance already dropped to 50% at the very start. The pistol guy can choose whoever he wanted to kill.

Second, lead pipe isn't that scary. It could be devastating but it's freakin heavy and in such a small space it would be prone to rush tactic.

Third, knife guy is likely to be the one to get shot. I would definitely shoot the knife guy and take his knife if I can. If I can't then I can throw the pistol and bumrush the pipe guy.

Yeah maybe if your arms were made of spaghetti.

Maybe in your specific case since you're fighting people the same relative height/weight as you, going with the knife would be best since you probably wouldn't even be able to lift the pipe over your head.

That won't work, you're basically assuming the other two people are complete morons.

Not having read any posts I'd probably take the pistol and do my best to make sure I landed it. I'd aim for the torso, definitely wouldn't go for a head shot. From there hope it cripples him enough to go one on one with the second guy. The thought of having the lead pipe or knife taken from me and then beaten/stabbed with it takes them out of the discussion. The pipe would be the easiest of the three to have taken away but probably the most effective due to the space you can keep.

Pistol
Pipe
Knife

I'm assuming that neither of them have a weapon

ah, i misread. Well if we're all getting one of the three I'd definitely take the gun being that its insta kill. I'd shoot dude with the pipe then again idk, it'd be a lot easier to dodge a swing from the pipe than being cut or stabbed by the knife. No yea, I'd shoot dude with the pipe and then take the pipe

You're just asking for them to team up on you

It'd be easier the other way around imo. I'd rather the pipe over the knife

We can sit here and talk about sticks and stones, atomic bombs and bazookas, knifes, crack pipes or whatever the fuck you fuck heads are yapping about, but the real shit that'll leave the common e-ga deceased and beneath the dirt of the earth, is this:

The only logical answer here is gun.

You guarantee yourself a 50% chance of survival. You have a weapon guaranteed of being a one shot stopper.
Taking anything other than the gun immediately puts your life in danger from the get go. You could be the one shot with the gun if you don't choose it.
And never was it implied that people act rationally and logically. Who knows, maybe the other guys attack each other before going for the guy with the gun.
At the very worst, even after firing it, you still have an extremely heavy object to throw, or distract someone with.
