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.

    I like the Henry .22 survival rifle. All the parts ft in the stock. It is light and already is in my bugout box.

    30-06??? How about . . . .308???

    The great thing about a shot gun for survival is you have a way better chance of taking enough game to survive. Ammo is heavier, but you’ll be less likely to miss that squirrel, or quail, or rabbit, etc. ,and taking big game will be easy.

    Not exactly the guns I would have selected, but they still have plenty of utility. Essentially, it’s a good .22, a powerful hunting rifle, a MSR for defense, a good reliable shotgun like an 870 or Mossberg 500, and a handgun in 9mm or larger for those last ditch moments.

    I have the Henry H0001 Lever action Carbine. It will take 22 LR, 22 Long, and 22 short. It doesn’t break down but it is only about 3 feet long, so still isn’t a problem to carry.

    a savage sp 24 over/under .22 mag. 20 ga. mag would be one of my choices for a single gun.
