That's a hard question! However, if I had to bet my life and the lives of my family on just one gun in a SHTF situation and I was just an average Joe, then it would be a pump shotgun. Remington 870 in 12ga to be exact. Like many above have said, it has stopping power, ease of use and reliability. It's under $500 with plenty left over for ammo. Think about this: If it's a SHTF situation, are you defending or attacking? Shotguns are one of the best defensive weapons in the world, that's why there are millions of them behind millions of bedroom doors all over this country!
