Fortunately I don't have to choose just one. However, here in the good ole USofA, it's tough to argue against an AR just based on the sheer numbers of guns, parts and ammo in circulation.

My favorite is the 6x45!!! But I am about to get a 6.5 Grendel started here soon.
If I could only have one gun it would be a 12 gauge pump shotgun.
If it had to be a rifle I would go with a bolt action 30-06, preferably a Springfield 1903. Badass rifle chambered in a common round. Too bad I don't own one

This is one of my 03A3 rifles, also have an 03A4 sniper and two straight 03A3's.
All are in Cal. 30.
The scope on this one is an L&S M3 ultra with MIL DOT RETICLE and 30/06 BDC turret.
This one shoots SUB MOA with M73 match and 30APM2.
That is an M60 flash suppressor on the muzzle.

With the exception of the 30/30's all others rifles are in military calibers for obvious reasons.
The 7.62 NATO and 30M2 will take care of most, 7.92mm falls right in for final defensive fires. if not the 50m2 sure as hell will.
My least worry is guns and ammo.
The scope is a 10X, and has a Timney trigger set at 3.5 pounds.
I built it 27 years ago for using APM2 which runs about 1.0 MOA and better depending which lot I use..
The furthest I have shot it was 1,100 yards at man size steel silhouettes.
