How diverse is your collection? I am trying to keep mine to a minimum.

Edit: How many calibers do you OWN not how many can your guns shoot. Owning a Medusa doesn't mean you have 25 calibers if you only stock .357's

.22, .40, .45, .223, .308, 30-06, 12 gauge.

Well, I have a GP100 and I stock both .38 and .357 magnum. And I have a Mark II that shoots .22. So I guess I have 2 guns but 3 calibers.

Does that mean my Henry H001 counts as 3... 22 short, 22 long, 22 long rifle??

Just kidding.

I'm lookin' at 9mm, .40 S&W, .44 Mag, .444 marlin, 10 gauge, and 7.62x51. I also have a few rounds for guns I don't own: .22 LR, .357 MAG, .38 Special, 12 gauge.
I'm invested enough in certain calibers to the point in my collection I may work around them.
Although I still want a 1911 and a .357 Mag. and a 12 gauge. And I want to buy a new SKS to replace my old one that I sold years ago. And maybe a mini 14. Okay forget the part about working around my current calibers...
