Here’s a Glock 17, Ruger Bearcat, and Kel Tec PMR 30
Aside from a rim fire handgun, the need for a reliable center fire pistol is obvious. There are many choices here to choose from and I believe you should select make, model and caliber based on your needs and likes. For me it’s hard not to consider a Glock 17 or 19—the company’s full size and compact 9mm models. Its reliability and ease of operation has been proven for decades now. We could sit and discuss caliber all day, and yes I like the 40 S&W and the 45 ACP among others. But 9mm ammo is very easy to find, accurate, and I can carry more of it in the higher capacity magazines that the Glock 17/19 features. You could also consider coupling your Glock pistol with a Kel Tec Sub 2000 in 9mm or 40 S&W and now you have a short carbine that runs on your Glock magazines … not a bad option. You can fit the pistol and the Sub 2000 (which folds in half) in a very small backpack, a nice transport and covert method of carry.
These are but a few of many choices. I believe that the key is to keep your selections simple, reliable and practical. The decisions are yours. The goal is to be prepared.
