I'm actually little surprised to see more 223/5.56 choices and 7.62x39.

I'd have to have a...

Interesting topic.

I've had a "basic 5" philosophy since I was 15 or 16 (I was a cqb enthusiast then. I'm more of a general knockaround/multi-purpose mindset nowadays). Here are my entries:

What it was then(eh, follies of youth):

380ACP (my ballistic basement)
357MAG
9MM
45ACP
12GA


My choices for today:

22LR - for reasons already stated, also for small game
357 - in a pinch, it can fire most common rounds in the .38/9MM persuasion (I know, why don't I have one NOW?)
45ACP - no topping one-handed stopping power*
7.62x39 - some years ago, I figured it would be the most common longarm round available
12GA - again, versatility/availability

If sticking to just 5, my list has been fairly fluid over the years as well. I preferred the 223REM over the AK round before, plus (*honorable mention here) the 40SW wasn't around in my youth. (I'm tempted to throw in the 327 for the same reasons as the 357, but that's a topic for another time I guess.)
