    <SARCASM>Yes, and we will all sleep so much better and feel safer. Just look at how Clinton's importation bans improved things. Oh wait, I forgot to add sarcasm tags. </SARCASM>

    I guess Ron White was correct in that you can't fix stupid. The sad part is some uninformed people will see this as a good move and believe it will reduce gun crime.

    .32 for me. I wouldn't have to change my EDC setup. There are some really cool 32s out there that are reliable, effective, and most importantly (to me) fun to shoot.

    Recover --- 41 Mag, 44 Special, 44-40 or 45 Colt
    Semi-auto --- 38 Super
    Rifle --- 257 Roberts or 6.5-284

    I have and reload all of those.

    22TCM9r feeds through a standard 9mm with only a barrel swap, I believe. Conversions were available for Glocks and Rocks (RIA) and both 1911 and CZ 75 format pistols are sold by Rock Island with parts to convert. I was buying them for $16/box of 50 before all the crap broke loose. Lots of fun, big fireball, defeats some armor, and it's a shame it took 5 pages to get to it. Highly recommended even if 9x19 is legal. ;)

    Well I carry 38 super and 357 sig quite often so these would be my first choices.
    To be a little different I would say 9x25 Dillon.

    If you want “old-disused” rounds/pistols, I, on occasion carry both of the following (have a lot of both “flavors” on hand):
    9MM BROWNING LONG and/or 9MM LARGO.

    I kinda want a 17 HMR Taurus revolver or a 22 Hornet version. A 32 ACP auto of some sort wouldn’t be bad. For a heavy hitter a 10mm is hard to beat. Maybe some Ruger only 45 Colt loads just for good measure.

    .41 Special loaded in a soon to be here 4” S&W Model 57 I guess. (Someday I’ll commission a 6-shot GP 100 in .41 Spl!)

    Stay safe.

    And 32S&W, 32S&W Long & 25acp.

    If all the popular cartridges disappeared overnight it's likely it would be years or decades before I even noticed.

    I will go with 45 Colt because I have it in a rifle to go with two pistols. I also have the lead, molds, and other things to make my ammo, but today, of course, it is all about primers.

    I have many 44 spl Revolvers I carry \ so that’s my preference

    The 9x25 would be the Glock 19 conversion as I reload

    Home Defense will be my 16” Marlin Jm 45 Colt

    And my favorite rifle is my 375win… So I’d prefer that as well.

    Beond those, My Double barrel 58cal Muzzloader, not exactly a common choice for Bp

    I'd drop the 9x25 Dillon barrel in my Glock 40 MOS and start running my 10mm brass through a .357 SIG die...would that count if the headstamps still say 10mm Auto?
