I'll play.
Remember when the SHTF there ain't going to be any ammo left at Wally World so you need to stock up or get your reloading press going. Also if you need to leave your home ammo can be pretty heavy
Mossberg 500
FNX45 Holds 15 +1. I'm not the best shooter & it's very accurate
A good sharped machete. For close quarter fighting or if yer in the woods it can help cutting wood for shelter. 
That should be well under $1200.00

In my situation, a SHTF scenario would most likely consist of urban survival, or at least me fighting to get OUT of an urban area. Therefore my top three choices would be:

1. Ruger Mini-14 (Tactical)
2. Remington 870 (Tactical)
3. CZ-75B in 9mm

The Ruger and Remington would be the simple black tactical versions, without any fancy gizmos or scopes added. Both are short and lite enough to conceivably be carried together. The Rem and CZ together would be well under $1000, as would the Ruger.

If staying in town,

AR with Aimpoint and BUIS.
CZ or Beretta 92F in 9mm
Win. 1300

If forced to bug out and stay in the wild for a long time,

9422 with aperture sight
large caliber revolver


I overlooked the budget constraint. If limited to $1200 (and ammo is free) I would pick a 1300 shotgun for town issues and a 9422 rifle for killing meat in the woods.
