Handguns For Bug Out Location

Handgun for bug out location

Part of my overall prepping plans is to have enough firearms for friends and family members who bug out to my location. I live in a rural area with privately owned that borders national forest and timber company land.

Hunting firearms is not a problem, the issue is handguns.

Let’s say some friends and/or family members bug out to my location. Not everyone will get a handgun. It is just impossible to stockpile enough handguns for everyone,

What is possible though, is to give out a couple of handguns for people doing security. These are the people scouting the bug out location for signs of trespassers. Someone who who is not supposed to engage the enemy.

What would be a good handgun to focus on?

Glock Handguns

Looking At A Glock 19

Glock 19

I never cared for the look of a Glock, or the fact that they are made out of a polymer instead of aluminum or steel. While some of my buddies jumped on the glock bandwagon a decade ago, I stayed with the Beretta 92F and more recently the Remington 1911 R1.

To ensure that the group is constant in some of the firearms we own, I decided to buy a Glock. The one I am looking at is the Glock 19.

Several months ago some of my buddies and I went to a shooting range in southeast Texas. They arranged their Glocks on the table and let me test fire several of them. The one I liked the best was the Glock 19.

The 19 fits the bill as a lightweight handgun that I can carry while working around the farm. Something that I can carry while running a chainsaw, or brush hogging with the tractor. A handgun that stays out of the way, lightweight and chambered in 9mm.
