    I do plan on adding 7.62x39 and maybe 454 causal or 460 sw. The bigger hand gun calibers are mostly pending on what i can have done for my finger arthritis. My pain doc told me they now can do finger joint replacement.

    Didn't work, just ended up with 7 motorcycles and way too many carbs to keep clean all the time.

    52 calibers in stock too, well that is what I have dies for. Need some 44/40 and, 327 and 6.5x53R dies,... Should be able to load the pending 44 colt with existing 44 dies hopefully,...

    But only one Jeep. Man can only afford one Jeep.

    Edit: Need 32 long colt dies too. Forgot about that one.

    Edit-edit: may as well toss in eight differing black powder calibers while we are at it.

    Been a long time in the making. Didn't happen overnight. And a lot of it is from C&R guns.

    I'm there too. Not counting black powder.
    A lot of my odballs come from my dad being a fan of milsurps and being a bird hunter.
    I'm covered from 10ga to 410.
    I thought Anonymous groups are for people who want to change.

    I thought I was doing good when I reduced my pistol calibers down to just 3 (9mm, 10mm and 45 ACP), but then I kinda went buck wild on rifle calibers, so at this point I don't even care anymore. I just buy what I want when I want and don't look back.

    And they all fit in the coffin when you die, just hope it is not a cremation.

    OP, magazine issues aside, get the Colt 1903. 32 ACP is a great shooting cartridge, much more pleasant to shoot than 380. My introduction to it was in the Colt Pocket Hammerless 1903. Love at fist shot! I now have the Beretta 81, FEG clone of PPK, FN 1910, plus a couple other European 32 pistolas. And, of course, since 32 auto was so much fun, I jumped into the 32 S&W Long revolvers, and now a 327 Fed Mag as well. One plus of the revolvers, I don't have to chase brass around, the autos love to fling it everywhere.

    It is a disease, I tell you, but it's a fun one! And, I don't have any motorcycles, or boats, or guitars.

    And, now, I'll have to count, but I know I'm over 30 different cartridges. And, I keep eyeing 32-20 revolvers, in fact, my last purchase on GB was listed as a Colt 32-20. Fair price, decent condition, but after I had won the auction, I noticed the markings on the barrel -- 32 Police Ctg! Yep, another 32 S&W Long. Oh well, it came in, it's in good shape. The dealer offered to take it back and cover shipping. I decided to keep it.

    So, whichever club for us junkies, accumulators, collectors, is created here, count me in!

    That’s why it’s a Unanimous group... we all agree it’s ok! :thumbup:

    No BP guns or a 10 Ga for me, but I do go 12 to .410 pretty nicely. :)

    Stay safe.

    My local GS has a nice 1903 Colt for sale, never had a 32ACP. so the craving is starting to escalate my compulsive buying habit. [/QUOTE]

    If you can walk out of a shop and leave a "nice 1903 Colt" on the shelf you don't have a compulsive buying habit. That may change if you get it (you should) or one of the many great shooting 32s out there. Post war Walther PPs are also a good start to the caliber.

    Once again the only reason I left it behind is because 32ACP is unobtanium right now.
    Of course NIGHTLORD40K, is going to send me a source with tons of it on their shelf, thereby tightening the noose on my pocket book.:thumbup:

    A Colt 1903 is great to have even without ammo.

    Brutus,
    Do you reload?
    If so, then you are not far away from having ammo for the 32.

    Yes I reload but I don't have dies, bullets or brass and all my primers are spoken for.

    Nope, I was trying to talk myself into buying a VZ Skorpion, but couldnt find any .32 anywhere and gave up.

    At one point, I had 8 .32ACP pistols, but none was reliable enough to be anything other than a frustrating range toy, so I wholesale dumped the guns and ammo I had at the time.

    To be fair, the 1903 Colt, with a good magazine, was probably the best of the bunch.

    Brutus, send me a pm with your info. I can send you some brass and some bullets. I have to check with a buddy, that may have some dies to spare.
