Actually Cane, when I think about it some more I'll trade .308 for .357 myself. I can't shoot for squat at long distance anyway. So my list would be:

.22, .357, .45, 5.56, & 12 ga

No, I can't trade my 1911s for a stinking 9mm...

I don't own a stinkin' 9 mike mike!

I own a P08 and a P35, the two finest 9mm to face each other on a battlefield!

Any takers for that argument?

Well, in THAT case, I can officially dump the .308 and I'll take the 7 Mike Mike for what I like to do a whole lot. Put rounds on target from WELL beyond range of anyone else on the other side.

And I got Cane to cover my back, how great is that?

Mine list:

30.06
5.56
12 gauge
22lr
9mm

I got 40s&w also because of law enforcement adoption. I'm more accurate with it too.

.308 for big game/ distance
12 gauge for birds/medium game/defense
.22lr cheap/available/small game/fun
.223 availability of weapons/NATO round
.45acp power,proven, and 1911's
Just my opinion but I think I covered my bases and seem to be in line with the thinking of most

If i had to pick Five calibers/gauges they would be


.45 ACP - Main carry pistol
.308 Win- Long range sniping/hunting weapon.
.22 LR- Its obvious why i picked this...
12 Gauge- The 12 gauge and all shot guns in fact are extremely versitile, you can kill small game, big game, and 2 legged critters all by switching loads..
7.62x39 The ultra-reliable AK-47, (One of my favorite rifle platforms) shoots it. As well as my SKS...
