3. Mossberg 500 12 gauge, home defense, with a second barrel, rifled slug for short range deer hunting
4. Savage Model 64, 22lr, squirrel gun
5. Kel-Tec Sub2000, 9mm, bug out gun
6. CZ75 BD Police, 9mm, EDC or Conceal Carry
7. Ruger SR1911, 45 ACP, just had to have it
8. SW 1911, TRS, 45 ACP, should always have at least two of each type, right?
9. Glock 29SF, 10mm, back up gun when hunting, or open carry hard hitting high capacity self defense
10. Ruger Super Redhawk, 44 magnum, hog hunting
11. DelTon AR15, 16", .223 / 556 NATO, Home defense stand-off or aussalt if needed
12. Remington 700 BDL, 30-06, long range deer hunting

Guns I would like to haveone day:
Colt Delta Elite
Ruger 10/22
Yugo or Romanian AK47
Remington 870, 12 gauge
SW revolvers
Another deer rifle in 308
Bersa Thunder in 380

and maybe something in a 40SW caliber if I never get around to reloading for the 10mm

Does this make sense to you folks? What woud you add to my collection, if you get where I'm going with this?
May I suggest a 22 MAG, in Bolt Action for small game? Maybe a CZ 452, 453, or 455, or a Savage..... (I recently got a CZ 453 in 17 HMR, very impressed.)

I am a licensed "collector" Curio and Relics FFL holder. Although I have many modern firearms, most of my collection consists of milsurp rifles from around the globe. I have focused on particular countries such as Russia and Great Britain as well as the good ole US of A... So I guess the bottom line for me as to having a collection, I would discount the modern stuff and call them aquisitions and what I consider a collection would be the milsurps that I've purchased over the years using my FFL.

Mine, in order of necessity:

1) 12 ga. shotgun - manually operated
2) .30 cal. or larger revolver
3) .30 cal bolt action rifle w/ good optics
4) .30 cal. or larger semi-auto handgun (preferably concealable)
5) .223 or larger semi-automatic rifle
6) .22lr/.22mag rifle of any action
7) .22lr/.22mag pistol
8) .30 cal. or larger full-size semi-auto pistol
9-...) everything else

Start whackin', that' my opinion.

Great suggestion. I have a 452 in .22LR and it can drive tacks and it's a very high quality rifle.

I kinda like Barney Fife's collection: A revolver and a bullet. Not a complete cartridge, just a bullet. Doesn't even need to be the same caliber as the revolver.

It depends on the emphasis of your collection. I do not consider myself to be a collector but an accumulator. I cannot afford the prices charged for true collectables. For me I wanted as many calibers as I could amass. I own a Ruger 10/22 in .22, a Browning Buckmark in .22, a Baretta 950BS in .25, a Nagant Revolver in 7.62 Nagant (.32), a Hopkins-Allen (.38 S&W), a Ruger SPS-101 (38spl/357mag), a Ruger Security Six (38spl/357mag), a Ruger GP=100 (38spl/357mag), a Ruger Redhawk (44spl/44mag), a Ruger Blackhawk (45 Colt), a Ruger SR1911 (45ACP), Glock 32 (9mm Luger, 357 SIG, 40 S&W), Glock 21 (45ACP), Taurus Judge (45 Colt/.410 Shotgun), CZ-82 (9mm Makarov), Mosin Nagant 91/30 w/octagon barrel (7.62x54R), Mosin Nagant Sniper (7.62x54R), M44 Carbine (7.62x54R), Chinese SKS w/10 round box mag (7.62x39), Chinese SKS w/AK-47 removable mags (7.62x39), M1 Carbine 30 Cal, M1 Garand 30.-06, Marlin 336 (30-30).
To fill in my C&R collection I have a long way to go. For US WWI/WWII guns I would like a Springfield 1903, a Thompson Contender and some of the earlier revolvers, I do not currently own any of the English, German, Italian, French, Swiss, etc firearms.
For modern weapons, I would like to expand on my collection/accumulation of lever action rifles/carbines, I would like to expand my inventory of SA revolvers and I would like to get a few more of my favorite side arms, Glocks.
So many guns, so few dollars.

Yes, I think you may be right. He just always referred to his cartridge as his "bullet".
