    I think I'd have to go with a 22 as well. The way I figure with enough skill just about anything can be taken down with a 22 and I could carry several thousand rounds in a small backpack. And of course you could have fun shooting it without running out of ammo anytime soon.
    I am assumming we are talking about a deserted island with no possibility of ammo resupply?

    If that movie were about me having to make that choice it would be 8 hours long...but still more exciting than "Titanic"

    I'd probably take a shotugn as noted above, it tends to be the do-all when you can only have one, and If I had to take a shotgun, I'd probably take a double barrel, less moving parts to break and still have two shots on tap.

    Although in retrospect, a O/U rilfe shotgun combo would be nice to have also....

    Can't you see why a movie about picking one gun would be better than Titanic? All the visualizations of what I could do with each type of gun is much more exciting than watching a boat sink and Jack drown...

    Probably a shotgun. Too many "what ifs" to choose anything else. It can be used to harvest food, protection, signaling, and...we ALL how how effective they are on zombies and aliens.

    Totally on point! This is the best choice!! Of course I want a wide selection of ammo types and chokes, and a smooth bore, and a rifled barrel.

    Does my demanding all these accessories defeat the purpose of this game?

    If not than a shotgun is the best choice. Slugs for large game, bird shot for small game, and buck shot for zombies!

    P.S.
    can we bring a cleaning kit?

    The Second Amendment has nothing to do with hunting. It is about keeping the government in check. This requires that the citizenry is well armed and at all times has immediate access to arms.

    Pump-action 12ga. shotgun all the way. Even if you could have only one barrel you can still shoot slugs, buckshot and birdshot out of it giving you excellent versatility and reliability. I would prefer the pump over a double barrel because of the higher capacity, although I suppose the double barrel could be slightly more reliable.

    Anyway, JMHO

    Take care,

    I would want a Benelli semi-auto w/ unlimited ammo or that new full-auto shotgun.

    I would also take the old reliable AK-47. Best all around combat rifle ever designed.
