    .223
    .30-06
    9mm
    .357 mag & .38 spec
    12 gauge

    That is all.

    The deeper I get into guns and reloading, the less difference I see between calibers. So I keep it simple.

    Personally I'd rather have matching guns with tons of ammo, rather than lots of different guns and lots of different ammo.

    .22 WRF (odd, I know)
    5.56x45mm
    9mm

    ... and that's it. :) Thinking of filling the upper gap with a .308, though.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    As of August 8, 2008

    I've since "adjusted" my caliber footprint, it is now like this:
    Rifles:
    .22lr
    7.62X39
    .308win
    6.8spc

    Handguns:
    .38spl
    .45acp

    Shotgun:
    12 gauge

    And I've got a pretty good feeling it's going to stay like this for a very long time :cool:

    Of all the postings, I found that Driftertank most closely resembles my "footprint", interesting......:scrutiny:

    My footprint:

    .32 ACP
    8mm Mauser
    9mm Parabellum (x2)
    .45 Colt

    Because I was bored, I added the bullet diameters of all 5 of my guns and came up with an average of 0.3588". So I guess my footprint is only about the size of a .38 S&W (as opposed to .38 Special.) :D

    wow, I've got some work to do, that being said, my dad and I (I've been out of the house for a few years now) have been working on a modest armory together so far we have....

    Ruger 10/22 (2)
    Remington 700 .22-250
    M1 Carbine .30
    Ruger .357 w/9mm cylinder too
    Glock 19 - 9mm
    12 ga - Winchester 1300 (garbage, will be trading in towards Tikka 30-06)
    - Remington 1100 (great barn rescue I've put some work into)
    - O/U can't remember brand
    - Benelli Nova
    20 ga - Remington 870 youth (will add full size stock once little bro outgrows it. I kept it for him to shoot)
    - O/U cant remember brand
    Model 1896 30-30 winchester saddle ring carbine

    That being said, all of our shooting can really be covered by the 2 pistols, the 12 ga nova and O/U, the 20 O/U (grouse etc), the 10/22s and the .22-250. I'm buying a Tikka 06 to add some muscle to the group and am mentally shopping for an ar-15 as well as a semi-auto 9mm-.45, can't really decide

    Run of the mill like .22 up to odd ball like 7.7 Arisaka, then jump to scatter guns up to 12 ga. Sort of evenly spaced along the way.
