Think if you could only have one gun for the rest of your life, and youll need it to defend yourself and others, and to hunt for food. You want it to be reliable and low maintenance, durable parts that wont need to be replaced, and takes a common type of ammo that is capable of effectively taking down humans and animals.

As for some of the best, many consider the best to be AR and AK rifles. Others say Remy 870's and .22lr would be better. It really depends on where you live and the conditions youll face, and the types of game youll encounter. If you could stay in one main area with a safe place to call home, you could benefit from having all of those i listed plus a larger rifle, like a marlin 30-30 or a rem 700 in .308 or 30-06.

Youll have to start searching for SHTF info online, way too much theory (and others experiences) to list here. Most will agree that the most important things will be ammo and shot placement, since no type of gun will be any good when you run out of rounds or if you cant shoot it.

Edit: And after rereading the link, i forgot to even mention pistols. You DEFINITELY need those, best in common calibers like 9mm, .45acp, and .22lr. Glocks, 1911s, Ruger MKIII and Browning buckmarks will all be good choices.
