    How many of you have a caliber in your collection and only one weapon that utilizes that caliber.

    If so, list it and the weapon and what weapons, if any, you'd like to acquire to make that caliber worth keeping.

    Me:
    Caliber: 44mag
    Current: H&R Handi-Rifle
    Want: Some sort of Lever gun in 44 w/ a scout scope setup

    The only guns I have that share a caliber are shotguns and .22s.
    2 - 12 ga.
    2 - .410
    10-22, .22/45 and a NAA mini revolver.

    Every gun I own is in a different caliber...

    (except for a couple .22s)

    I thought that was kind of the point of having different guns.

    I guess I'm just a little OCD when it comes to having too many calibers to purchase/stock/hoard/keep up with. it bugs the crap out of me that I have a .44mag ammo and only one gun I can use it in. And a single shot at that.

    Right now I'm down to:

    22
    9mm
    12ga
    x39
    5.56
    .44

    I got rid of .308, ideally I could do without .44 but I bought it for "Primitive weapons" season here so if I have to have .44 I'd like to have something that could at least work at a makeshift fighting rifle.

    I only have 1 12ga shotgun (870), planning on fixing that before too long, I need an 1100 with a 16" barrel. (I'm not counting my Win 1897 because it's unsafe to shoot)
    I only have one rifle in 7.62x54r (mosin), no plans on getting more (Although I would like a PSL, with a 16" barrel)
    I only have one gun in 300 whisper (ar) no plans on getting more
    I only have one gun in 9mm (ar) I'd like to get a handgun, fnp9 is currently at the top of the list
    I only have one rifle in 32win special (My great grandpa's Win 94) no plans on getting more
    I think that's it.

    Let me see

    5.56/.223: 2
    9mm: 4
    45 ACP: 3 (one en route to FFL now)
    30-30: 1 (Marlin 336, no other real wants)
    30-06: 1 (Remington 760 BDL, at this time no other real wants, I wouldn't mind another later)
    7.62x54r: 1 (Mosin, maybe another mosin to keep it company)
    22lr: 4
    8mm Lebelle: 1 (Some old school folding trigger velo dog, I think one is enough)
    45LC: 1 (S&W 1917, maybe a marlin lever action)
    30-40 Krag: 1 (Krag-Jørgensen, nothing really comes to mind)
    32ACP: 2
    357: 1 (S&W Model 60, I wouldn't mind a longer barreled 357)
    410: 1 (Western Arms, I could do with a shorter barreled rat gun)
    25ACP: 1 (a Colt pocket gun I inherited, I don't know if I even like the caliber yet)
    20ga: 1 (Winchester 1912, I think 1 20 ga is enough)
    7.62x39: 1 (WASR-10, I'll think about more once I work the feed problems out of this gun)
    12ga: 4

    I only have one gun that uses .45acp. But its a Wilson CQB so I wont be getting rid of it. However, not a big fan of .45acp, its fine, but I'm not so enamored with it that I feel like its God's gift to cartridges. There really is nothing else that I want that would shoot that cartridge. Therefore, I only really keep about 100 rounds or so at a time of it.

    I also only have one that shoots 30.06. Again, nothing really I want in that cartridge either. Maybe a M1 one day when all the other wants are taken care of, its far down the list. But I might convert that to something else at some point though, its a hunting rifle and not sure how much more of that I'll do.

    .22 I have 1 rifle and 1 pistol and one conversion for Sig
    9mm I have 5 pistols and 1 AR SBR
    .40 I have 3 pistols
    .45 1 pistol
    .223 3 ARs
    .308 bolt gun and AR10
    30.06 1 rifle
    12 gauge 2 shotguns

    A whole lot of shit.

    Most of it never gets shot. Some of it I probably couldn't reasonably find/make ammo if I even wanted. I'd just as soon pawn the whole fucking lot of it and turn it into shit I'd actually use, but it's protected by some kind of family heirloom bullshit.

    I could do without the mess of calibers too but its part of the deal that comes with having fun toys. My pure toy guns don't get shot nearly as often as the others though so its not too rough.


    (send soybomb 10mm brass plz)

    5.56 I've got my one AR. That's enough to make it worth it for me, but I'm gonna add a SBR eventually.
    12ga, just my Stoeger SxS, soon I'll add a more practical shotgun to the mix.
    22lr, just my 10/22, would like to add a 22 pistol and a 22 upper for the AR.
    Had a 9mm, but sold it after getting the AR, need to get another one. Might be time to join the Glock crew soon.

    How do you like it? I've heard that it's pretty damn accurate for as short a barrel as it's got, and it seems like it'd make for a great pocket gun.

    .38 special - sold it yesterday
    9mm - glock, cz, hk, hi point
    .22 lr - bolt rifle, cz conversion
    .45 acp - 1911
    .223 rem - ar-15
    6.5 swede - bolt action

    Don't plan on getting redundant caliber guns besides the 9mm .22 lr ones I already have. Maybe an SBR and SPR type. Right now I only have a 16" mid-length.

    Have always wanted to rebarrel my Remington rolling block into something besides 43 Spanish (like 40-110). Prolly a bad idea though...

    the only 2 calibers that i just don't shoot much of is my .44 mag and my .45acp. i would never part with the 1911, it's been in the family for too damn long. the .44 i flirt with parting with but haven't brought myself to do it. figure fuck it and have it stashed strategically incase of a break in :)
