u can't CARRY the entire toolbox

you can't even push it, where there's no pavement. :-) You're stuck with 1-3 multi-tool types of guns and only one can be a longarm, for shtf. To me, unless it's shtf, everything interesting can be done with a duty sidearm, so why not do so? I used to think that a silenced 22 was a good idea for a BOB, along with a pocket 9mm. I still think so, but not sure it's worth the weight/bulk. If it's small and lw enough, maybe so. It can be 9" and 1 lb, and you might need to handle a problem or seize an opportunity, without making noise or flash. If you're willing to lug around a 1911 or 357 4", a pocket 9 and silenced 22 are no more weight and very little more bulk

I'm kind of on the opposite side of the "concealable vs. full-size" thing. To me, unless it's shtf time I'd rather stick with a concealable pistol. Full-blown shtf a la The Postman or such, then an open carried pistol would be my choice, but honestly I'd want it to be in addition to a concealed pistol; not instead of it. Short version, if I could only have one gun, it would be a concealable pistol. Probably a compact in a medium caliber (9mm. to .45acp); something along the lines of a glock 19, M&P Compact, etc. Big enough to be fast & accurate, but small enough to conceal when necessary.

If possible, I'd rather have a smaller (better concealable) one, and a bigger (faster, more accurate) one; but if only one, some compromise is probably unavoidable.

What model/caliber is that Berretta? I'm thinking 1935 .32? I'd like to have one, but I'm strenuously trying to avoid adding yet another caliber to the bunch.

Beretta Model 70 in .22 LR, apparently it was a favorite of the Mossad as an assassination pistol in past decades.
