Default If you could only own one firearm please tell us

This is ALWAYS an interesting and sometimes very controversial topic.
Please post your firearm of choice here and give your supporting reasons.
Have fun! Lol

Man, I'll start, because I know someone else will bring it up...
The "One gun to rule them all" hasn't been invented - yet.
1. Handgun-1911. I've shot many, it's the "one gun that rules..." all my handgun needs.
2. Rifle-see number 3. But if I had to choose, an AR-15 because I have experience on the M16 family.
3. MG-gimme an M249SAW. It has many drawbacks. But, it was my right arm for 4 years. It has become like my most male apparatus. I know it as I know my male apparatus (I seem to equate a lot of things to my genitals...). I know it's strengths, I know it's weaknesses.
4. Shotgun-Mossy 500 or Remmy 870. Simplicity, reliability, and availability of parts, and that's the only reason.
5. A .22 rifle. One of the most versatile rifles ever created.

Sorry. It simply can't be narrowed down to just one.
Fantasy gun? The Devil's Shotgun.

One gun? AK family. 74, 47... Don't care. Good enough at practical ranges, built tough enough, ammo plentiful across the world. Could hunt with it, magazines are plentiful.

That's my only one gun choice.

AR-15. Light, accurate, highly customizable, and more than enough for most SD/SHTF situations. If you get a short barrel, and a collapsible stock, it can also be concealed with the right clothes. Not to mention, you can change calibers if need be.

Ohhh that's going to sting.

One "gun"? I'm going to say Mossy 500. I can shoot slugs, buck and bird shot, saw the barrel off short enough to conceal. I feel a good scatter gun can cover all my needs, if it had to just one.

Pistol - any good 1911 .45. But the ultimate weapon for me would be the "Ma Deuce".
