Check out Coles Distributing on Gunbroker (also advertises in Shotgun News) for good prices on used 9mm pistols. Most of his are Israeli PD guns:

Police trade in or used revolver, semi auto (smith, glock, ruger) in 38, 357, 9mm, 40, 45. 45 is nice as low cost ball/fmj ammo is effective as its big 'n heavy 'n slow.

Bolt action Mosin, Mauser, etc. Buy plenty of weird old ammo for it... They are accurate, heavy, and will drop a man or moose.

PUMP 12ga shotgun, main defense tool. Preferably with dual barrels- 18-20" for combat, 28" for hunting. Mag extention tube would be a nice perk, or learn how to reload as you shoot, never run out of ammo. Get buck, slug and birdshot.

10/22... IF you can get ammo for it. A few 22LR pumped into someone at 100 yds will make them think twice. One well placed one, they wont get up.

Anything else would be well... Expensiver.

+sachson !

Your list is most common sense items I have seen. My HD/ SHTF battery consists of your same list. The firearms are dependable, parts easy to obtain, and affordable. Most have accessories you will need: slings, holsters, mags/speedloaders, sights, etc. Get some ammo boxes to allow moving and organizing and a cleaning kit w/ tools to work on your guns, you are in!
Practice shooting-range, and learn hunting and bushcraft. Keep reviewing your gear.

And remember, cheap as possible! Thanks
What you want is a Hi-Point pistol and Hi-Point carbine in 40 S&W. Pistol $165, carbine $350.00. Both use the same magazines so that gives you 4 mags for both replacement or extra mags $18.00 each. Since the ammo is the same for both that reduces your cost as well. Not pretty guns, but ones that work and are effective.

Instead of trying to go cheap, try going smart. A good rifle with a scope, a pistol and a decent knife are what you need for survival purposes. British and U.S. military forces adopted the SUSAT and ACOG sight systems because both found that use of scopes on rifles enhanced overall accuracy and also helped in identifying targets a longer distances. Mounting a simple 4 X scope or 4 power magnification scope on a rifle works well for the overwhelming majority of shooters no matter which rifle that they use.

You can take almost any rifle, even the venerable AK-47, and enhance its accuracy quite a bit without trying to turn it into "a sniper rifle." So if you got an AK and later on mounted a 4 power scope on it, you really would have a very, very reliable rifle that shoots a medium diameter and medium weight bullet that could take down deer and feral pigs with no trouble. You could also use the rifle for personal defense too. And the nice thing is that it won't be busting the bankroll either.

As for handguns you can pick up decent used guns from pawn shops and gun stores all the time. And don't be afraid to think about going with revolvers instead of semi-automatic pistols. A used Ruger revolver makes a real good back up companion piece to an AK rifle. And as for a decent knife, you might want to consider getting a good Kabar to have around the rucksack. Those knives seem to work the best in survival situations.

AK74 (surplus ammo is 18 cents/round). Add an AK bayonet for a knife, they might need to be cleaned up but it's plenty robust.
