Aside from the most obvious, which would include firearms and bow weapons, you'll find a good machete useful, and the Gerber version has a sawback. You'll discover more uses for a good machete than you can imagine, so you'll want to keep it near your back easy to reach.
The second item that I have found my most useful hand weapon/tool is my tomahawk I have from my days in Special Forces.

Now a peaceful gal, but as long as military might be in your area rounding us up for death camps, I think I'll take what they've got.

Yeah, an AR isnt the wisest choice at this point for that reason.. .22 has very little stopping power, but any slightly experienced shooter will have next to no recoil from it. So it's easy to put round after round into a person and not worry about missing.
But you need a more powerful (more than the AR, it's really not that powerful either) weapon when they get up too close. A shot gun, 9MM, AK, or any other similar weapon is a good choice for this. All of them have readily available ammo (Well usually anyways)
