Default If You Could Only Own 4 Guns

I posted this on a gun forum and got some interesting results. Let's pretend that you can only own one shotgun, one pistol, one revolver, and one rifle. Being reasonable (no $50K collectors pieces), which of each would you choose.

Me

Revolver = 4" Colt Python
Auto = 1911.45 Either full size or commander size
Shotgun = Beretta 391
Rifle = M1A either SA Super Match or a Fulton Armory

Default The rifle part is tough

Auto pistol.....Colt Woodsman 22LR
Revolver...........S&W 629 44mag 8-3/8" barrel
Shotgun...........Remington 870 12ga with interchangeable choke tubes
Rifle.............My M70 Super Grade, 264 Win Mag. If it's under 500 yards it's dead.

Now that being said, if the rifle was for survival type, Armageddon style use, it would have to be a good AR chambered in .223 simply because of parts and ammo availability.

Don't need an auto pistol so no opinion
S&W .357 revolver about a 4.5" barrel
12 ga. Remington 870 pump
Remington bolt action in 7mm rem magnum if ammo is not an issue (otherwise 30.06)

Revolver S&W 386 .357 that way you have a choice .357 or .38 special or The Judge .45 or .410 its hard to beat

Semi pistol Kimber Tactical Pro, XD 9, Witness all in 9mm I'm 2.2 seconds faster with a 3 shot group all in 3" ring at 25yds over .45 1.3 seconds over .40 and neither of those two has all 3 shots in the 3" ring at that speed.

Shotgun Rem 870LE 12ga 18 1/2" folding stock, pistol grip

Rifle Savage Model 10FP-LE2 .308 or M110 although the AR15-AR10 platform is probably the least dependable semi auto in the world unless fanatically cleaned after every outing not a big plus in a real world scenario.

S&W 629

Sig 220

Armalite AR 10T

And a hard time deciding on Browning BPS or 391

For a rimfire selection, as much as I like my Pardini, I'd keep my Mod 41 over it if I had to choose.

Where am I hiding the rest?

Rifle 308 Winchester Auto.
