I have ample 9mm, 45acp, 12ga and 22.

I live on a farm and also carry. To be perfectly honest I use my 22 for everything, carry a 9mm and own many rifles of all calibers. I definately agree with a 7.62 and have a ak and sks for the reasons discussed like what most other militaries shoot. I probably own 10 different 22's and shoot all my guns regularily but the 22's always seem to be in hand regardless of job for the day. Just want to remind everyone that all guns are useless if you are not shooting them regularly.......a good rifle does not equal a good shot unless in proper hands!!

9mm and 5.56 with 38/357 as my backup

22 because small varmints are food, 7.62x39 because there is more of this ammo than anything else and a 3006 springfield In a pinch you can use 308 does not work the other way
Better 12 judging than 6 carrying

223/5.56,308, 9mm would be the main ones simple reason ammo Military use them all most commonly stored by most. second would be 7.63X39 and 22 there is so much of it around.
After that 38 and 357 because so many weapon fire them

9mm is ubiquitous. 5.56/.223 (gotta put 7.62x39 in there too) should be fairly common as well.
I can't imagine any household in the southeast that doesn't have a few boxes of .22LR & 12 gauge laying around.

I've discussed this topic with friends and family before. I'm a strong believer in the .22LR. Why? It is mega cheap and easy to stockpile thousands of rounds. Not only are the rounds cheap, but they don't take up much space. Sure, in such a situation I'd keep my 9mm on my hip until I ran out of 9mm ammo. After that, I'd be carrying the .22 pistol and using a .22 rifle for long-distance defense and hunting.
If money were no issue, then I'd probably go with 9mm for a handgun and .223 (such as an AR-15) for rifle.
