cornbelt If a guy gets down to only one gun, it will probably be the one that's available. Then its just a matter of figuring out the best way to do it.
As common as single shot shotguns are, it might be one of those. They ought to be good for anything in North America.
Then again, it might be a .32 rimfire.

DEACONLLB For me and my use I would say my TCR 87 with a shotgun barrel a 22Hornet barrel and a 7mmo8 barrel that would about cover anything I would hunt.

Grew up in Nebraska and in those days most of the guns we saw hanging in public places or in museums were converted to shotguns they were worn out and rusty (they were basically pieces of junk by the early 1950s). I've thought about it for years and believe I'd go with the best break action shotgun or combination gun I could afford. Right now it would be a Savage 24 in either .223/20 ga or in .357/20 ga since I have both and ammunition probably would be readily available in those cal. and ga. Has been interesting to watch this topic develop based on what people believe is important to them and how their lives might develop. Thanks for all the thought and input. gene
Notice how even my thinking has changed as I read the posts.

lloyd smale if modern choices are allowed make my an ar15. Go back in time with one ar15 and a few thousand rounds of ammo and you could have changed history. Can you imagine if Custer had just one man set up with cover and an ar15!!! If one man at the Alamo had the same!! Battle at Gettysburg, Yorktown ect. If you could go back in time with one and enough ammo youd almost be considered a God. Can you imagine what General Lee could have done with 20 men armed with suppressed 300 blackouts.

geosmin 25-20 Marlin 1894

Low report, soft shooting. Load up or down. Capable of taking deer to rabbit to varmint.
In the early twentieth century, a popular caliber with farmers and ranchers.

Shootall3 Check out MA adapters . You might be able to get and adapter to shoot 22 mag in your rifle. I shoot 30 carbine in a 308 win

alleyyooper For me it would be my Rugar 77v 220 swift. down olad to 22 mag speed for small game like squirrels and up to 3808 speed for deer and other critters.

D Fischer Just one of what I have? Not a clue, I could make do with any of them. All my rifles are bolt action's. Have three SxS shotguns, one pump action shotgun and several handguns DA's and three auto's. Wouldn't be a handgun!

Where I live a shotgun wouldn't be so good, shot's at game animals would generally be to far. My smallest rifle is a 243 and largest a 30-06. Anything in between I could live with!
