M.D. Creekmore’s Top Five Handguns for Preppers
M.D. Creekmore’s Top Five Handguns for Preppers by M.D. Creekmore – The Survivalist Blog
I love writing firearms related articles like this, because these types of articles always brings readers out of their silence because everyone who knows anything about guns (and some that don’t) has an opinion about what “the best guns” are and they will argue and defend their beliefs relentlessly, so we get plenty of comments and ideas that will, hopefully help others make the best choices when purchasing firearms for self-defense and survival.
But, before we go farther I’d like to point out that even though this article is titled “Top 5 Handguns for Preppers” I’m not saying that you need all five handguns. No, of the five handguns listed here a combination of three is all that you really need…
For example, the Glock Model 19, Glock Model 43, and Browning Buckmark or the maybe the Smith and Wesson MP 9 Pro, Smith and Wesson MP .22, and the Glock Model 43. With either combination of three handguns you have a full-sized (or mid-sized as with the Glock 19) handgun, a smaller handgun for deep concealed carry that uses the same caliber ammo as your main handgun and a .22 for practice and small game hunting… if you’re a good enough shot.
Okay, with that out-of-the-way let’s get started with my top five handguns for preppers.
1. Glock Model 19
The Glock model 19 is one of my all time favorite handguns and is a top choice for preppers. The Glock 19 is really a mid-sized handgun but with the magazine capacity of a full-sized handgun, offering a full 15 round magazine capacity plus one in the chamber.
When I carry my Glock 19 I do so with a full 15 rounds in the magazine plus a round in the chamber for a total of sixteen rounds. I also keep an extra 32 round Glock factory magazine in my truck and another in the nightstand beside my bed… just in case. The Glock 19 is my top choice for preppers or anyone looking for a mid to full-sized handgun and it has my top recommendation as a prepper handgun.
