I consolidated calibers a few years back. I have .22LR, .223/5.56, .30-06, 12ga. and .45ACP. I do not currently have a .357, but I will again eventually and then I'll have six calibers.

??? Then you must change your handle to CA223 or CA22lr...

10 by my count, with the guns doubling up (& quaddruppling up in the case of the .22) on a couple of the calibers. i've got some standards & some odd balls thrown in there:

.22 LR, .223, 6.5 Carcano, .30-06, .303 British, .32 S&W, .32 S&W Long, 9mm, .45 ACP, 12 gauge 2 3/4".

CA45ACP has a nice ring to it, but I'll just wait till he gets another .357

Do tell what they really are, I'm curious.

To everyone, I really didn't expect everyone to take the time to type out the calibers but I'm a data guy, I think I should graph it and see whats most popular.
Well, you got two out of three...

.45 ACP, .22LR, and 9mm.

I first learned to shoot last spring, intending to get one pistol for self defense. It proved to be more addictive and costly than I expected, lol I do wish to get a couple of long guns next, but I do not know much about them and have to do some more research first. I want a decent rifle and shotgun. The funny thing is, now that I have gotten into shooting my mom of all people wants me to take her shotgun shopping one day. Four other people I know are now interested in either going to the range or taking a class like I did-I guess it's contagious.
