    Hi...
    I have multiple handguns in .357Mag, .41Mag, .45Colt and .44Magnum.
    I own one lever gun in .45Colt, .44Magnum and .357Magnum. I would have one in.41Mag but I just haven't found one yet.

    I just enjoy having a rifle that shoots the same caliber as whatever revolver that I happen to be carrying.

    I don't shoot cowboy action... it's just nice to have multiple options.

    Commonality of shared ammo, mainly. I have two lever rifles in pistol calibers and a semi auto rifle in .22LR. That's just less ammo to buy and stock and warehouse.

    Boots and .357s. :cool:

    Here's my spin on that theme.

    I just bought a miroku/Winchester 1873 in 45 colt to go with my Ruger OA with cylinder and Ruger Blackhawk. But i haven’t shot it because I didn't do my research. I wanted to shoot Ruger only loads in both. But the toggle-link isn’t strong enough. I need to sell it and buy a Henry big boy side gate.

    Do they make a handgun designed for the .460 weatherby magnum round? And if they did, not sure this 73 year old wants to shoot it!:rofl:

    However, I also have no desire for a .308 handgun, therefore, I guess I'll keep with my two rifle rounds and 9/.40/.44 handgun rounds. Not too complicated for even an old guy, and I have plenty of shelving space for the rounds needed.:D

    A Rossi 92 would also work fine.

    Ruger PCC, and a Couple of Springfield 9mm 1911s
    (more 9s but they stayed in the safe)

    Crummy light in the garage so pics are not great.

    I have a Ruger 44 Carbine which I hunted West Virginia with extensively and my complimentary S&W Model 29 44 Magnum.

    Ruger 44 Carbine pictured on the top. The lower rifle is a 444 Marlin lever gun.

    Model 29 no flutes. :)

    While I have plenty of .357 Magnum revolvers I would like to find a nice .45 Colt lever gun to compliment my Ruger Redhawk .45 Colt. Really just a matter of preference as there are plenty of nice combinations out there to choose from.

    The only true rifle/pistol combo I have is a PX4 and a CX4 in 9mm. I say true combo because both use the same mags.

    You've got to get a Ruger pistol or a Glock in there so you can share magazines with that carbine. ;)

    Have 2 9mm 1911s, XD Compact, XD subcompact, Sig P226 Dark Elite, Taurus PT99.
    Anything new 9mm I am interested in is not on CAs stupid approved handgun list.....:fire:
    No Ruger pistols or Glocks but I changed the carbine to Glock mags as they are much cheaper than Rugers and since I am in a 10 rnd state:barf: I need 3 times as many.

    You and me both. I'm in NY. I actually had a bunch of G26 magazines hanging around from when I owned that particular Glock. I like the carbine a lot, so I eventually caved and bought another 26 to replace the one I had sold.

    Unless I am mistaken, the Camp 45 carbine (as well as the Camp 9 carbine) were made by Marlin rather than Ruger.

    I have a Beretta CX4 in 9mm. I will eventually get a 92 to go with it, but I currently have a 9mm Shield and a Ruger P95.

    The Ruger and Beretta 92 mags are nearly identical except for the notches for the mag release. I've always wanted to experiment and cut the different notches into a mag to see if it works, but I'm not that skilled or brave

    My reason is I can carry all my ammo on my belt when I'm riding.
    Also a scoped rifle is a pain to pull from a scabbard while on horseback.

    What about 30 Carbine? Offered as both a milsurp rifle (as well as new manufacture) and a sub-model of the Ruger Blackhawk.

    The idea sounds good, but for me it's just a feel-good thing. I don't go woods walking, looking to kill critters, so there's no practical benefit to handguns and rifles in the same calibers. Not that I don't have some, they just don't give the warm fuzzy feeling I thought they would. I can just as easily take two ammo calibers to the range. If I want a cheap rifle cartridge I'll use .22LR.

    Marlin 62 lever action was also made in .30 Carbine.

    For pistols and revolvers I've got two 1911s and a Vaquero.
    I've also got a Hi-Point carbine.
    A couple of my 1911 mags have the second notch that lets them be used with the Hi-Point.

    EDIT: I've also got a pair of DAO Back-Ups, but I usually don't think of them.
    They're not much fun to shoot.

    A Kel Tec Sub 2000 9mm rifle and a Glock 19 would make a really practical and versatile outfit.
