To do all things a gun can be used to do would include personal and home safety along with recreational excursions.
While a long gun or rifle is universal for hunting it for the most part is poor for self defense and home intruder situations. The barrell is too long for close quarters comabt survival and improbable to conceal effectively. This also brings up velecity and penetration issues, being as in most cases a high caliber rifle will exit outside of the home bring the risk to innocent neighbors in question.
So would one then choose a handgun? Very practical for persoanl safety and close quarter combat but extremely limited in hunting. Usually moving slow enough to execute proper peneration and stay contained in a home unless a trailer.
So a meet in the middle gun? Good question...

That would be the .22!!!
You can take any game from chippies to elk and everything in between with the proper shot placement.
You can pack a 500 round brick of about the same weight and take up about the same space as a box of magnum shells.
Now if it wasn't for survival and I had to choose just one gun over all it would be an over under 22 mag-shotgun.

Like was said earlier ammo is cheap, light and doesn't take up much space. With correct shot placement you can kill most American game with it. It's not legal for all game, but if we're talking strictly on a self survival level, the 22lr pistol is the best choice. IMO
