    I'm really not sure where this question came from, I was just thinking it would be fun to ask. What I want to know is what caliber do you own one or more guns in? For example,
    I have .22, (as of monday) .17 hmr, 12 ga, 20 ga, 7.62x25, .40, .45, .38/357 5.45x39, 7.62x39, .308, 7.62x54, 30-06
    While I may own more than just one gun of a certain caliber, I'm just curious as to your caliber diversity.
    :)

    Having consolidated calibers, I'm sitting at:
    - 12 Gauge
    - 7.62x39
    - .243 Winchester
    - 9mm Parabellum
    - .45 ACP
    - .22LR


    The only ones I've got any interest in adding are 7.62x54r, .30-06, 10mm, and maybe .357 Sig.

    I've been actively working to winnow mine down to a useful set from a very eclectic batch some years back and am pretty much there.

    .22lr
    .38/.357
    9mm
    .45 Colt/.454 Casull
    .480 Ruger/.475 Linebaugh
    .223/5.56
    12 ga

    The .454 & .475 more or less are for the same purpose but I have two fine guns, one in each caliber. I may try and work a trade to consolidate and go with one or the other. I may also add a larger CF rifle round sometime, but no need for it thus far for my uses.

    I actually had to look that one up. If you were going for eclectic, good work. :)

    After looking it up, "Holy Crap"

    That's a handful of a cartridge.

    I try to keep it simple and stick to main calibers, or at least ones where I can find ammo readily.

    .22lr
    .380acp
    9mm para
    .38/.357
    7.62X39
    7.62X54r
    7.62X51 nato
    12ga.

    That's it.

    I feel like mine is out of control to a degree ... NO NEW CALIBERS UNTIL I HAVE A GUN ROOM

    rimfire:
    22short / 22lr / 22wmr

    handgun:
    22tcm / 32acp / 7.62x25 tok / 9x17 / 9x18 / 9x19 / 45acp

    rifle:
    .223/5.56 / 7.62x39 / 30-30 / .30carbine
    shotgun:
    20g

    ===

    I know others have a more diverse collection, but mine has to live in ammo cans in the closet, under where I hang my clothes ... and I probably missed one or two in the above list (ones I add in after will be in red, I already realized one that I forgot)

    .22lr, .380, 9x19mm .38spcl, .357mag, .45acp, .44mag, 5.56NATO, 7.62x39 Soviet and .308 and 12gauge.

    I honestly have little desire to add any other calibers. I don't care for .40s&w nor do I hunt any large game species.
