Have you shot, or not, but really want to? Or have ya fired them all?

Shot:
22lr
25acp
380acp
9mm
357mag
44mag
45acp

Don't really care to bother with the 22short or mag, nor 32acp or 38sp. 45gap means nothing to me, same goes for the big bore 50cals. 45lc maybe but I've heard the factory loads are weak sauce these days, so not too interested.

I could've sworn I've shot 40sw, but I just can't recall when or where, so that's on my to do list!

Any I've missed? What about you all?

*chuckle* :)

Yes, a number that are not on the list- but have shot (or own) all that are on there.

I have shot all on your list, and then some. Many, many rounds of .45 Colt and .44 Special. Not so many .41 Long Colt, .38 S&W, .32 Magnum, .32 S&W Long, .44 Henry, .41 R.F., plus a smattering of wildcat loads in Thompson Contenders, and a few .31, .36, and .44 caliber cap-and-ball.

Probably a few others that don't come to mind now.

I once shot french fries out of my Sig P226. Ok, it was actually a dream. I ran out of bullets after zombies were trying to break into the house. So, I put french fries into the gun. Normally, my guns do not work at all when I dream, so I got lucky this time. I have really strange dreams when I am stressed. :o

The only thing I have not shot that I want to shoot, is the .338 Lapua.

I know there are tons of less popular or hardly produced calibers. Anything you haven't shot but want to?

Very cool Bob! What was the 32mag like? That's something I'm somewhat interested in trying some day.

orangello 04-23-2013 09:50 PM

I have covered that list. I'd prefer to never fire another .25acp or whatever that Saturday night special .32 was I tried. Don't forget .38 special though; it is great for target plinking. I also like firing the 7.62x25mm rounds from my CZ52 in the dusk to see the fireball, same for my BP revolver in .44 lead round ball.

I would like to fire one of the bigger handguns like the 454 casull and of course a 10mm from a 1911.
