The fun thing would be that concealment is no longer an issue. Pass me a Draco or an Uzi please.

In a zombie apocalypse which would be a better location, a city, suburb or rural area?
A city would have much more of a threat due to the increased population, but access to reserve resources, ammo, medical etc would be easier as well.

If we're talking about a zombie scenario, the following becomes true (assuming the genre norms):
1) High-impact stopping power is no longer a factor; center-mass shots are basically useless. So the whole notion of big bullets wouldn't work (unless you also need to stop still-living looters in addition to Zs).
2) Accuracy is key (head-shots only), so low-recoil becomes a huge plus.
3) Concealment is no longer a factor; if this really is Z-day, then every sane still-living person will be packing.
4) Ammo weight becomes a big issue; unless you're only staying home, any amount of travel means having to carry enough ammo to get from place to place.
5) Some genres of Z-day show the Zs still able to hear, so silence helps.

So all that said, the suppressed .22LR with a red-dot sight is probably the best sidearm choice (as others have said above).

My 19 with a a few 33's and a suppressor (maybe that goofy oil filter adaptor). 9mm is common enough that I would find it while looting vacant houses and shops and has enough power to slosh a zombie brain- even in fmj. .22 would be a good choice too, but I worry about it penetrating the thick skulls of people who were not smart enough to prepare for something the government couldn't save them from (zombie liberals!)

I'd still rather be rural with a large open area all around the house so you can see em' coming and get them at long range before they become a threat.
You an always make trips into a city or other area with supplies to restock.

Not necessarily- I for one would have a gun tucked away in a hidden spot on my person still. Running into other living people may not be the happy reunion you think it will be. Humans are naturally adversarial towards each other, even when sharing a common goal. I wouldn't want to be caught without a trick up my sleeve (or inside my waistband).

Zombie Pistols

1. Suppressed American 180 22 with multiple 180 round tray mags.

2. Suppressed Calico 22 pistol with multiple 100 round helical magazines.

3. Suppressed Ruger Challenger with as many hi-cap mags as I could carry.

or better yet... Rifle versions of the above.

I think my 10/22 takedown would be my choice. Maybe my AK. Glock 19 for a sidearm.
