...caliber or gauge among the guns you own?

Believe it or not, I only have a couple of .22s and only one 12 GA shotgun (I figure these two will be the most popular answers), but I just realized that I have like seven firearms chambered in .45 ACP...

I should probably buy more ammo in that caliber than I do. :o

.22. More ammo's always a good idea.

Hands down, the .308. I just seem to gravitate toward them for some reason or other, not really sure why.

.357 Magnum by a long, long way: thereafter, no more than 2 or 3 of each caliber, with some singletons.

9mm (three guns), and .22LR (two). The rest of my collection is one gun, one calibre - 7.62x39mm, 7.62x51, 12ga, .44 Mag.

December 26, 2002, 10:57 AM
9mm and 45ACP

But the only .22 pistol that I has seen over 3K in rounds in the last month between myself and my significant other.

45ACP by a long shot, followed by 10MM, all in 1911 configuration of course.:)

I seem to only be a pistol caliber duplicator. All my long guns are different calbers /gauges. Though I have recently gotten excited about milsurp collecting, and at $60 a pop, expect to have a growing population of 8MM VZ-24s.:D

Stetson_CO
December 26, 2002, 11:16 AM
.45LC(5) for me then .36 blackpowder(3)

Then there are pairs of calibers but they arent shot as much. I think the next closest is 7mm but I havent counted in a while.

7.62X51 by far with 7.62X39 coming in second. A fair bit of .223 and 30.06.

I have more .45s than anything else.

December 26, 2002, 11:19 AM
Its a tie, 2 45s, 2 9mm, 2 12 gauges, 2 5.56mm, 2... well you get the idea.

Remember, two is one and one is none.

Marko Kloos

Mr. Spreadsheet says that I have guns in a dozen different calibers, but the only "multiple copies" are .357 Magnum (two K-frames), 9mm Luger (two Europistols), and .32ACP(two pocket guns).

22LR is the most popoular in my closet.

5 total 3 rifles and 2 pistols.

Next would be a tie between 9MM and 30.06, with two of each.

I would have to say .357. I think I own multiples of almost every caliber. I don't really have a count but I know I have at least a dozen .357 revolvers and one .357 rifle. .22LR would have to be close though, I don't have a count on .22s. Then probably .223/5.56 NATO, I think I have six of those. I probably have around 5-6 9mms, no I take that back, if I count 9mm carbines I have at least 7 9mms. I don't know, but .357 surely takes it for me.

Unpleasantly so, this thread caught me off guard. About to skip on to the next thread, I gave the question some thought.
I realized that I have four 9mm handguns. I then remembered that I don't particularly like 9mms.

I also remembered that I only have two .45acps, my favored handgun cartridge.

I guess I'm a creature of strange habits. :(


Well, to answer the question, my most common handgun chambering is in .38special.

I am going to try and make this as accurate as possible:

2x .22
12x 9mm (HKp7/BHP/Glock/HKMp5)
2x .40S&W
1x .45ACP
8x .308 (7.62x51)
4x 12gauge
1x 10gauge (never fired)
1x .30 06
2x 7.62x39
1x .177 (no powder)
2x .44mag
Ok I think that about right...

36 firearms..... that can't be right I must be missing something.

1 - 22 rifle
1 - 25 Raven

1 - 45 Para Ord.
1 - 7.62x39 SKS
1 - 12 gauge (the only S&W that I still own. Hey I'll take it only so far - it was my daddy's gun)

If I have my way, the 45 will pull into the lead. I want a Para LDA in 45 and one in 9mm.

Looks like 4 in .357, first I was gonna say .22 & 9mm, but only have two in each of those calibers.:eek: Looks like I've got my work cut out for me!

3 .22's for me.

I have doubles of .38/.357, .30-06, and 12 gauge.

I'm looking for another .22 rifle and possibly a .357 lever action, so I may end up with a tie.

I sorta have mine spread out. Lemme think here: .22LR: 3 .32ACP: 2 .380ACP: 2 9x18: 3 .357MAG: 2 .40S&W: 1 .41MAG: 1 .44MAG: 1 .45ACP: 2 7.62x39: 1 .223: 1 .270: 1 12GA: 2

Well, I guess it's a tie between the .22LR & the 9x18. Of course, I haven't bought a gun for about 8 months so who knows....

AR-10
December 26, 2002, 03:33 PM
I have four revolvers chambered for .357 Magnum.

Doubles in several calibers. No 9mm and no .22 handguns. They don't interest me.

Tamara
December 26, 2002, 03:40 PM
Since some folks are doing breakdowns...

2x .44 Magnum
7x .45ACP
1x .41 Magnum
4x .357 Magnum
1x .44 Special
4x .38 Special
2x .32 H&R Magnum
2x 10mm Auto
1x .38-40
1x .22 Magnum
2x .22LR
1x 7.62x38 Nagant
1x .25ACP
1x .40 S&W
2x .32ACP
2x 9x19mm

1x 7.5x54 Swiss
2x 7.62x54R
2x 8x57JS
3x 7.62x51 NATO
1x .300 Whisper
1x 6.5x55
2x .30-'06
1x 7.7x58 Arisaka
1x 12ga
1x .45 Colt
1x .243 Winchester
2x 5.56x45 NATO
1x 7.62x39

Three of these are duplicates. For instance, if you have a .32 ACP cylinder for your Nagant revolver, a 10mm cylinder for your .38-40, or a .22 Mag cylinder for your .22 LR , which caliber is it?

Rick R
December 26, 2002, 07:17 PM
The most common caliber in my armory is 5.56 with three and a half specimens, and a .223 Rem barrel for the TC also. I was infected by AR15-L a few years ago and now any AR-15 parts around the house eventually become whole rifles. I hear voices in the night telling me that my spare upper receiver wants it's own lower...

Of course I have a springfield scout on the short list in 308, a 4 inch gp100 in 357 magnum, a glock 20 compensated would also be nice. 22s have no chance of winning this game next year.

Well, I'm firearms deprived compared to most folk here. My current balance of .357 magnum/.38 sp to .22 is 3/2. One lonely 12 GA that I will be finding a companion for when I can. Maybe a lever action .357 mag rifle, too.

Mike Irwin
December 27, 2002, 05:46 PM
After thinking about this for quite awhile, I reached the same conclusion that I've reached before. My recent purchases don't dethrone the .357 Magnum as my most common caliber.

2 Charter Arms Bulldog Tracker .357 Mags.

3 S&W Model 19s

2 S&W Model 28s.

Next most common would probably be 9mm.

A Beretta, a Radom, and a Kahr.

Pappy John

.45-70 - 1
.45 ACP - 3

Tie between 22 rimfire and various .308 cals but the general 22 caliber wins but at one time, I owned 12 1911s at one time.

Bloody ... I left out all the muzzleloaders in ,36, .45, .50, .69 .... ah, the heck with it!

I guess I fall into the predictable group -- 5 .22's (7 if you count .224 rifle calibers).
Then 3 .45's
2 12 Ga.
All the rest are singles.

I guess you could say that my collection (if you can call it that) is fairly diverse. I have two 12 ga. pump shotguns. An 870 and a 500A.
All others are singles. From .223 to .30-06 and from 9X18 to .45

I have more 9mm guns than anything else, but the .45 ACP is catching up.;)

22 rimfire: Stevens bolt-action, Marlin lever action, Ruger Super Single Six - makes (3)
12 gauge: Mossberg 950 - makes (1)
.380: Llama Model III (IIRC) - makes (1)
.357 Magnum: S&W 686 4" bbl., Hawes derringer - makes (2)
.45 ACP: Kimber Compact CDP - makes (1)
.44 Magnum: Ruger Super Blackhawk in SS 4 5/8" bbl. - makes (1)

Just sold a 20 gauge double barrel.

So, for those who keep track like I do - 3 long guns and 6 handguns. Now, if I can just convince the wife that I need to even up the odds a bit, maybe an AR-15, a Mini-14, and an M1A1 would do!

.22LR; three rifles and three handguns. After that it would have to be 7.62x51 and then .45acp. The usual stuff...

7.62 x 54 with 8mm coming in 2nd. I collect Mosins and Mausers.
With my collection of other firearms I have 9 other calibres. I try to keep 1000 rounds of ammo for each calibre.

For me it would be 357 and 223 . Hey Tamara what do you think of that 300 whisper you own ? I would like to hear about the gun and your thoughts on the caliber .

1 each in 30.06, .38, .45, .410

Off the top of my head, 3 .22s, 2 .38s, 1 .357, 3 9mms, 2 .40s, 3 .45s, 1 .308, 2 12 ga.

Sold this year 1 .357, 3 9mm, 1 308, 1 30.06.

Subject to change at any time.:D

.357mag, I love .357mag:D . Well, except out of J-frames and equivelent (I had to let the 605 go). Since it will shoot .38spl and I have a dedicated .38 too (and soon will have more) I suppose you can say I have more guns that will shoot .38spl than any other (shrug).


Edit:

Oh wait!!! This was the General section, not General Handguns. Until I got rid of the 605 that would still be correct as a tie (and if you count .38s with the .357s since they'll both shoot .38s it still is a tie) but I own 3 .22lr rifles so I guess that is my most common. Funny, with one exception I haven't really found any .22lr rifles I really like that much either (and I plan to add one or two more over the next year) (shrug again).

I'm weird...

My Stolle Panda is a 6PPC (several barrels), a 6BR, and a .22PPC "Ratdog."

My Savage 110 is a .243 and a 6BR.

My Savage 12BVSS-S is a .22-250, and is probably going to get an additional 6/284 barrel.

My Savage 110FP is a .308

I've also got a Bushie Dissipator .223.

Several (not sure how many...) Ruger 10/22s - I tend to impulse buy 'em when I'm feelin' down while walkin' through department stores - nothin' like a new toy to pick up one's spirits! I think I've got one or two I've never shot...

Also got a Mossy 500 and an old J.Stevens (no relation to J-Lo) model 235 that's cut down to 18.5" and is REAL sweet.

Only "handgun" currently is black powder. Workin' on that...

And I know I'm forgetting something or other...

Still building mine but I have a .38 and two 9 mm Berettas. If I can change my permit, I'll buy more 9 mm. Plan to get the Neos and Cougar in a .45 when they are available in Massachusetts.:D
