    I own somewhere in the vicinity of a 100 pistols and 167 rifles, and 43 shotguns
    Pistols range from 22cal thru 10mm with the minimum of at least three per caliber most are 5 or more.
    Many pistols are older ( old top breaks that still shoot) and a few milsurps.
    Most rifles with exception of the fal's and ar's are milsurps that are functional and shoot very well,
    I have all the m1 carbines but one the elusive IP
    Have a fetish for older shotguns, SxS and older pumps Have a nice collection of ted williams pumps, all pristine.
    Favorite shooter is a stevens SxS that my gramps taught me how to shoot, also have his original henry( he was an old cowboy here in arizona)
    My problem is storage, and security, love to show them, but have to take them out of storage prep them to show off, its a bummer to work so hard to show some great stuff.
    Hey what can I say, its a damm drug, gun collecting is.
    OH yeah, my .45's from 1913 to present day, all makes, colts, rands, sistemas argys, AA, Springers, can't help myself,
    Bragging over, just wanted to share my passion, always willing to show them off, gonna put the m1's up for sale and maybe start over, the best part is bartering and finding the pieces. Oh yeah shooting is a hoot too.

    I've been mildly bitten by the 1911 bug so I have four Springers now. And I'm considering a 3" .45 after shooting a buddy's Kimber SIS.

    Cowssurf, by your poll and post count I see you're a little new around here. :D A suggestion if I may for your multiple guns in one caliber poll.

    NOVICE: At least 2(because you should always have a backup)

    INTERMEDIATE: Between 3 and 5.

    ADVANCED: 6 to 11.

    CALIBER EXPERT: A dozen or more in the same caliber.

    BTW: Where in Utah are you?

    I like to have pistol/rifle and pistol/shotgun combos that use the same cartridge.

    .45lc/.454casull - Redhawk alaskan & Rossi puma

    5.7 x 28 - FiveseveN & PS90

    .45acp - Colt 1911 & auto-ordnance thompson

    .410 - Tarus Judge & Saiga (just for giggles, not much practical use)

    45/70 - BFR & replica sharps

    now if I could only find a handgun in 458 lott...

    No rhyme or reason, really. I just seem to lean towards these calibers when given a choice.

    I have two 40 cal pistols. An XD-40, a full size home defense/nightstand gun and a Taurus Mil-Pro 40 for concealed carry. I really like the 40 cal, so I want a full size and a compact in that caliber.

    2 pistols 22cal
    4 rifles 22cal
    5 shotguns 12 ga

    I think those are all the common caliber guns. Might have to cheek the inventory.

    I don't know what's more impressive:the handle or the collection.
    Both inspire admiration.

    I decided that rather than buying umpteen calibers of different guns to focus on guns I like in calibers I can keep in stock in large quantities to economize my reloading and inventory.
    HEck, everyone should have 4-5 .22s in their collection.

    Five plus for me in one caliber... not counting what I sold in the same caliber plus other calibers.

    More than one in some other 'calibers'.

    (I am not counting my husband's just my own.)

    S&W Model 41

    S&W Model 317

    Ruger Super Single Six (22LR and 22WMR- I rarely EVER shoot anything but 22LR in this S/A revolver!)

    Ruger Bisley

    Browning BL 22

    Marlin Papoose 70PSS

    The above are in 22LR in case some readers don't know that.

    I sold the 9mm and 44 magnum caliber guns. I loved them but have more than one in the SAME caliber.

    I own and love... 45Colt aka long colt, 357Magnum, 38Special Plus P, 30-30, etc.

    I owned more firearms than my late husband back east.

    My groom/husband has a longer list... he is a born/raised Montana man.

    I was a born/raised east coast lady and lived in farm/lake country with my late husband for over 30 years. My firearm collection if you want to call it that although I do not consider myself a 'collector' started THERE so maybe it is more than a Montana thing in how many firearms a person owns. Grin and a joke to you. (Another thread on here.)

    To the Montana people... we know Gary M. well and belong to the MSSA too. (Another thread on here.)

    Sincerely,

    Catherine - Armed and Female - Montana

    PS

    I bought several firearms in the SAME caliber ON PURPOSE. Handguns and rifles.

    I could keep it simple on my bulk ammunition buying because I did not reload/hand load back there. I was going to learn it with my late husband but it did not happen due to his illness.

    My groom/husband 'reloads'.

    He has several favorite calibers too.

    Sincerely,

    Catherine

    Ha ha, very funny. I've always wanted to add .44s to the herd, but I've always talked myself out of it and relied on my .45 Colts. Maybe one of these days, if for nothing else than to try out the .44 Spl that Taffin and others rave about.

    I have four in .357:

    S&W Model 66 4"
    S&W Model 65 3"
    Taurus Model 650 2"
    Marlin Model 1894.

    This is not counting .22s, of which I have three rifles and one pistol.

    Or my two 12 gauge shotguns.

    Or my two single-shot .410s.
