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?

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.

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

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.
