Rifles/long guns are pretty consolidated for me:
.22lr
.223/5.56
12 ga

Pistols:
.22lr
.40 S&W
.45 ACP
.454 Casull/.45 LC

The wife has
20 ga
9mm
.38/.357

I'd say we have all the easy/common calibers covered so if there ever really was a SHTF/zombie invasion/whatever we could always find something to shoot.

I've heard that even if you're only hit in the thumb by one of those spitwads, you're a goner. They might even be banned by the Geneva Convention.

Certainly banned in California, New York, and DC.

Mine are extra nasty. I produce all of my spitwads by hand after 4 straight days of eating mexican food off the roach coach, extra sauerkraut dogs from the weiner cart, and binge drinking a combination of "borderline" milk and wild turkey. Oh yeah, i don't own a toothbrush either. Some intruders are intimidated by the sound of a 12 gauge pump... all I have to do it open my wad jar, the smell does the rest.
