Browning HP 9mm.

I have plenty of mags and ammo and will be able to take more 9mm ammo from dead Zombies.

P226 in 9mm, or P229 in .40 if I am caught out while in EDC fashion.

I would pack my Glock 26. Very hide-able and durable and a 9 and can run 10, 15, 17, and 33 round mags. Lots of spare parts. Doesn't really need lube or care or cleaning.

Wait! Change that! Make it a 27 with a 9mm, .40 S&W, and .357 barrel. Are there .22LR barrels, too?

S&W Model 6904. Small enough to conceal, but accepts the 20 or so Model 59 mags I have. I got more 9mm ammo than I can carry

Would be just as happy with any of my K frames.

Was all set to say G19, but TACLOAD reminded me of my G34.

It's only used for competition, but in just this scenario, it may very well be ideal. (Among 'my' selection.)

Not quite as concealable as my 19, or 36 for that matter, but it would be great for hunting anything up to medium size deer or taking some longer shots at bad guys.

Hmm...it's a toss up.

If not for the available ammo issue, LG's 5.7 might be the 'perfect' handgun for a world gone mad.

I was going to say my 17, but would pick my 26 for the same reasons. I also have a .22 kit for it.

Glock 17 for the win!

Actually the 19 or 34 would work fine.

I think it depends on where I am when it happens and what I plan to do. It would defiantly be a Glock.

My G17 is on loan, so I can not grab it.
My G21 would probably be at the top of the list. I have 3. I have lots of mags. I have a suppressor. One is a SBR. I could CCW it, if needed.
My G19 and G26 could be an option. I have plenty of mags. I have a 22lr kit. I could make them into SBRs.

I don't know, if I am running out of the house, I would probably get the one in the kit or the one closest to me.

Glock 17L.

Is concealability key under TEOTWAWKI ?

For zombies, yes, for people no.



I'd probably grab my Glock 19, or my H&K USPf in 9mm.

high capacity, reliable, accurate, concealable.

Glock 31 with KPOS SBR kit and my spare .40 barrel.
That combo pretty much does it.
If ammo is a problem then my Glock 17.

If I had one it would be the Glock 17.

Of what I own it would be my Sig Sauer P228.

Well since we said already own, would go with my G24, I love the 40sw round, have several mags for it, ammo would be easy to find.

G 19. The mags from both it and the G17 would fit, 9mm is fairly light.

If having ammo was not concern the G21.

Hard to say. It'd either be one of the g19's or one of the g26's; but to play along, say g19 probably.

Much like LG1's reasoning on the suppressed 5.7, I'd take along the titanium abraxas silencer as well, along with a whole bunch of mags. (We have either 47 or 52 9mm glock mags; last purchase was five, and I don't recall if that count was before that purchase.) Advantage imo goes to the suppressed 9mm over a suppressed 5.7 due to subsonic/supersonic considerations. In order to get seriously-quiet suppression requires subsonic velocity, and a 147 grain bullet at 1000fps is substantially more capable than a 40-grain bullet at 1000fps.

And my sons get to take their G19's as well, right? And my wife; maybe a g26 instead for her.

All that said, if this were a true "no going home" mad max or Postman situation, I'd really be longing for the 5" ruger DA .454 revolver. It lends itself to scrounging of components since it can use either small (.454) or large (.45LC) primers, the big caliber lends itself well to casting bullets if necessary, it doesn't throw brass everytime you pull the trigger, it's a very durable alloy (rust-resistant) material, it uses a couple different models of speedloaders, and with use of "reduced" (.44 magnum level) loads, it should last several lifetimes. All those things make it imo a very good option for a long-term, wandering post-teotwawki lifetime handgun. I really believe it to be such a good option that I'd seriously consider letting my wife & sons carry the glocks and me carry that revolver.

Ok, Just one gun. No long guns. Must already own it.

I have several handguns to choose from and I have a fair amount of ammo for each... I would go with one of my 10mm Glock 20's.

1) The 10mm is a great cartridge and the Glock 20 is an outstanding sidearm.

2) I have a stock pile of 10mm ammunition in different flavors.

3) Glocks are very reliable and handle abuse very well.

4) I have lots of gear to support the Glock 20. Everything from holsters, to magazine pouches, to extra parts.

5) I shoot it very well.

6) I have a couple of magazines for it...

7) Finding .40 S&W to feed it will be easy.

I like how you think Natty.

Love these types of questions because you really get a chance to see what most the thinking types would use.

Given the parameters of the question, 9mm gets a big nod for all the reasons mentioned.

A year ago: Glock 35, g.3 w/ a LW 9mm conversion barrel.

(12) G17/G34 mags
(3) G18 big sticks
(10) G22 mags (in case i find or trade for .40 ammo)

Add a LW .357 Sig barrel and an Advantage Arms .22 conversion kit, the gun is good for 4 calibers.

I feel I could throw a hurting on some (dirty) hippie-zombies with that.

Unfortunately, I sold my gen.3 G35 last year and have yet to find a replacement.

My second choice would be a Glock 34 (gen. 4). Other than being able to be converted to other calibers, it offers the same advantages as my first choice.

Unfortunately, I don't own of these and my preps money has been going to food and long guns and that ain't changing in the foreseeable future.

So for me, the winner will be my American Glock with a safety, my Ruger SR9. Since I got that, my Glock 32 has been sitting in my gunsafe. Next handgun will probably be an SR9c, just because its small.
