What calibers DON'T you have?

I don't have any .40 handguns. My theory was always that I don't need another caliber to buy, so why worry about a .40.


So now that I think about it, I'm wondering why? I think I have just about every other caliber. Maybe I should break down and buy a .40. just for the hell of it.

I was the same way about the 40 cal before I bought the Shield 40 cal then sold it to get another one that was a bit more appealing to the eyes...S&W Tactical

That caliber has really grown on me in the last year or so..

Right now I have no 9x19mm pistols. I even thought about buying a revolver in that caliber as more for "prepper insurance" in case 9mm ammunition was all that could be purchased in bulk.

I decided to put off such a purchase until the reviews on the Micro 9 come out, although a XD Mod 2 in 9x19mm has some attraction.

That's easy. I consolidated down to only several calibers.

Rifle: 7.62, 5.56 and 45LC for the lever

SG: 12 gauge

Pistol: 45acp, 9mm and .40...

I wouldn't even have the 40 if my boy didn't give me his HK USP 40.

I made up my mind to keep it simple.
Only thing I want come spring is 6.5 creedmoor.

I have been looking at the S&W 929 for awhile now...

Just can't cut loose with $1K for a revolver at the moment...

The only one I have is a convertible BH....357/9mm is the top one..

Product: Model 929

When it comes to handguns, I don't have a .40 or .50 but I've got everything else.

You want every caliber I don't have? Even with quite a few that would be a long list. I don't want to type that much, it would be easier to say what I do have.

.22
.38/357
.380
9mm
.40
.45 ACP
.223
30-30
30-06
.300 Mag
45-70
16 gauge
12 gauge
