A side-by-side double barreled shotgun

The double-barreled shotgun is a break action shotgun with two barrels, either over and under or side by side. The over and under layout is better because the gun stays more balanced after firing a shot. However, the side by side variant is faster to reload. They come in all gauges from .410 to 12 gauge. During the apocalypse, double barrelled shotguns would be of mixed usefulness.
