Default Most popular per caliber?

My goal (eventually) is to own every (major/popular) hangun caliber. Furthermore I want to own the most popular gun or the gun that made that specific caliber popular. For example a .45 I would say the Colt peacemaker and 1911 would be the most popular, I would go with the 1911 obviously for money reasons. The .50AE would obviously be the Desert Eagle. But my question to all of you would be what you would think are the most popular handguns per caliber? (not the most popular caliber alone, provide a make and model to answer the question)ie. for the caliber .45 you may think the Colt 1911, for the .380 you may say the Walther PPK.

9mm & .45 ACP are the most popular cal. in my estimation. 357 Mag. is pretty popular too, but the .40 & 10mm are growing too.

I would venture a guess on the lowly .22LR

He is asking which gun per popular caliber. Like the example he gave for the 45, either the 1911 or the colt. I think for the 40, it would have to be the sigma. (Brownie points with shihan) hahaha!

That's a very difficult question to answer.

The .45 used in the Colt Peacemaker is totally different to the .45 used in the 1911.

+1 dan, the 22 rimfire is the most used cartridge in the world.

Yep. The Colt Peacemaker used the .45 Colt cartridge which is .454 diameter, and the 1911 uses the .45ACP which is .452 in diameter.

Yes I am aware the cartiges are different, I was trying to make the question less confusing but that didn't work
