mag fed), a 10 ga autoloader, box mag fed, converted to be a 20mm grenade launcher, .300 WhisperAR upper, .50 bmg ar UPPER. etc, FOR CERTAIN SPECIALIZED uses. However, each of those guns is HORRIBLY limited outside of its special use. The .300 Whisper is for silencing sentries, with subsonic loads and brain shots, at up to 175m. The 300 Mag BAR is for extreme long range sniping, and knocking holes in various strategic containers, at long range, using "pulled" 30-06 Black tip, AP, tungsten carbide wire cored bullets. The 20mm grenade launcher is the ideal weapon for 1 man against many, to 100m. The .50BMG can hurt Big Brother about 10 bill $ with one shot. The 12 auto, with a "spreader" device on its muzzle, using #4 buck, is a mean motorstooter inside 50 ft., yet it won't exit much of a building wall. None of them, however, offer the concealment, one hand use, GI rd, .22 unit, handiness while canned, versatility of the scoped, canned CAR-15 and .22 unit. So that is what gets the not. It's the only sensible choice for shtf. It can do everything that NEEDS doing, WELL enough, and do so better than anything else. In fact, the only other gun that even comes close is the Mini-14, with a .22lr conversion unit.

There is no such thing as a "do everything" weapon though some may come close. You don't take into consideration the location a person may be in. An urban setting or in a wooded area where your shots would be limited to 200 yds or so would make the AR a good choice. It would be a very poor choice in a locale where the trees are 10 miles apart and long shots are the norm - thats where the 308 and 30-06 reign supreme. The 11" shorty CAR that you like so much is a pretty lousy choice for much of anything except specialized close quarters fighting. The idea of disabling your only full power fighting rifle in favor of the 22lr adapter is a delusional fantasy.

Choose the weapon to fit your AO and the situations that you may run into. I personally would rather carry more gun than required than be caught under-gunned and under-powered.
