Default Knife, 3-foot lead pipe, or pistol with 1 bullet?

Say you're in a 3-man fight to the death. The fight takes place in a small-ish area (say 50x50 feet, and you're caged in), relatively featureless (i.e. no room for cover). Your opponents are two individuals of similar size/build to yourself.

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?

However big you want it to be, within reason.

I'd go with the knife. IMO its capable to deliver most damge of the 3 options.

I'd take the knife and hope the guy with the gun shoots and kills the guy with the pipe

The winner will be whoever doesn't get shot. Unless the shooter is adept at pistol whipping someone with a pipe or knife.

The correct answer is gun...

Shoot the man with the knife...take the knife...stab the man with the pipe

Or unless the shooter has the brains to simply pick up the weapon of the man he just shot

Yes, but that's an interesting alternative. I guess answer both.

Also if you take the gun you might be lucky enough to have the other two fight it out first...leaving one dead, then it is just you vs. the winner, and you have the gun.

"FALSE. Correct answer: wait until both men are lined up perfectly. THEN, aim gun at opponent #1's skull. The lone bullet will pass thru said skull and connect with opponent #2's skull. Both men are dead. I win."

I would probably choose the pipe, because I feel that the guy with the knife is most likely getting shot anyway. Or choose the gun, shoot the guy with the knife, and take my chance against the guy with the pipe.
