Err ... are you planning on starting a war?
Unless you need to defend a large and not hidden structure, or joining up with a marauding gang, then it seems like a bit of overkill to even have such an arsenal. A good hunting weapon that doubles as a defense weapon is all you need. A side arm as an extra is good but major assault weapons...I plan on being far away from your type when survival is at stake.
In a war situation, you will need troops. A small group will probably lead to a bigger group coming to get you. Having an arsenal is asking for trouble unless you are in Iraq.
In a survival situation, being discrete, is far better than blasting away till someone bigger comes along. And they will come.

You won't need to do the background check to purchase a black powder rifle. You can also buy a rifle from a private individual as that transaction also wouldn't need the check.
As to the topic at hand. Many hunting rifles, my newest is a Remmy 700 CDL in 7 Rem mag with a 3-9 Zeiss Conquest. My only pistol is a CZ 75 9mm, and I have 2 shotguns, both Winchester model 12's 1 in 3" mag and the other 2 3/4".
