Shotgun .410 or 12 guage, pump action for late night intruders and birding.
Bowhunting requires alot of time& practice to any where near as effective for survival purposes. I suspect that you'll be too busy trying gather food or farm it the # hits the fan to do much practicing.

Finally, my sidearm would be my Sig P229 .40S&W. Again, a tried and true firearm and preferred choice of the Secret Service, US Coast Guard, Homeland Security Dept., US Marshalls, and countless law enforcement personnell nationwide. It is accurate and reliable. the .40S&W is the same as a 10mm and will fire either round (Although the 10mm is slightly less accurate through this sidearm). I have had no problem finding rounds for this piece and prefer the Federal Hydro-shock rounds.

Nor do silencers silence revolvers due to the barrel to cylinder gap allows sound to escape.
--The Nagant revolver is an exception; the cylinder pushes forward against the barrel forming a "seal".
Some of the scenario's I see here looks to have the survivalist so loaded down with weaponry and ammunition that there would be scant room to carry what is truly required to survive on your own in woods or forest.

What's that new weapon the Israelies are using in their military? That cerainly looks like a good all around choice.
Also, I think we could look at that show Jerico for a good idea of what would transpire in many national survival situations.

plus with the 22 having 18 shots and being semi it is very good for self defense the chances of going up against someone with body armor is slim and if it happens hit them somewhere else.
