Your poll is obviously screwed up from the get go. You didn't mention the .41 magnum.

It would help to mention whether or not you are wanting us to post up just handgun cartridges in this thread. I am assuming only handguns since you didn't mention any rifle rounds.

Mine are:
.22
.380
9mm
.40 S&W

This is the second time that I have posted this. The first one went away. A Google search turned up the first version but it was not here when the link was pursued. Google also said that there were 18 posts in this thread as opposed to eleven at the moment.
Not a criticism...just wondering where things are.

Why do I carry a .45? 'cause they don't make a .46

They do now, it is the 460 Rowland (power ~44 mag.) Brownells sells a kit to convert a quality .45 to 460. It is an acceptable deer round.

Just 9mm Luger, .40 S&W & .380 ACP at the moment. I'm trying to keep the caliber variety in my collection limited until I start reloading in a couple of years, but I may let .22 in the dooor when the new S&W M&P .22 pistol comes out later this year.

holy rounds batman! some of you ladies and gents must have one heck of an ammo den lol - I try to limit my calibers carried currently 38+p, 40sw, 45acp in handguns, long-guns .223, 30-06, and 12 guage. I used to carry a lot of 9mm platform firearms but after the 40sw came out I switched and never looked back.

.22LR, .22WMR, .22 Hornet, .380 Auto, 9mm Luger, .38 Special, .357 Magnum, .44 Russian, .44 Special, .45 Colt, .223 Remington/5.56mm, .30-06, and 12 ga. Reloading makes the centerfire cartridges affordable for me.

If I had to cut back, I could probably get by with only .22LR, 9mm Luger, .44 Special, .30-06, and 12 ga. But why?

I have finally settled on four (technically five):

.380 in my pocket (LCP)
.40 S&W on my belt (XD Service)
.45 in the safe (my Colt 1911, which I am babying and shooting sparingly to save as an heirloom pistol for my son)

and

.38/.357 as I got a Black Friday steal on a Rossi 3" revolver I could not resist. Didn't need it, but why not?!

Just added a new caliber (and a new cartridge) to my earlier list. I picked up an antique "British Bulldog" pistol.
The caliber is .442. The cartridge is the .44 Webley/ .442 RIC. it also shoots a slightly shorter variant called the .44 Bulldog.
