Dereck, your question could be the start of an interesting discussion, but I don't think you could ever pick "the best" survival gun for all survival situations. On top of that, I would much rather have a good knife than any gun in a wilderness survival situation, (Urban survival is a different story--I carry a Glock .40 and a .380 backup--usually a .357 in the truck--12 gauge loaded at the house--God help the scumbag that decides to mess with me). But I digress--the knife is your most important survival tool--you can use it to make other tools. I'd rather have a gun, fire starter, first aid kit, water purifier, fishing gear ... (a beautiful woman and a bottle of Jack Daniels LOL), but the knife comes first. If you answer Bo's question, or give your reason's for your choices, this could turn into an interesting discussion.

Okay now, I have a question, where are you using this perfect survival weapon? Just asking.

There's a "right" answer to this question??? Sorry, that's ridiculous. I agree with Bo--it depends on where you are. It also depends on other factors--if you are carrying food, self defense is a higher priority. If you have no provisions, a firearm suitable to harvest available game would be more useful.

I take issue with the question, it depends on the destination of the traveler. If I were in Alaska, what I would choose is much different than if I were in the bayou of Louisiana, or the glaciers of Greenland or the deserts of Southern Arizona. I do not believe that one weapon can be the be all end all in every survival situation. It must be tailored to where you are going.
I do not want a .410 or .22 if I might be coming up against a Grizzly who is very hungry, unless I am planning to shoot myself before it eats me...
