I bet you would change your mind if .22 LR was all that you had, and your family was starving. I am not advocating it, but it is possible. Talk to some Depression era folks who were in that position, and they will tell you. In a true SHTF situation nothing is predictable and the works can't and won't should probably be largely deleted from a person's vocabulary.
