I would like to fire one of the bigger handguns like the 454 casull and of course a 10mm from a 1911.
The makarov I've thought about, but not too turned on by it. I should admit, the 357sig and 10mm are somewhat intriguing!

Isn't there a 327 also? Or is that an engine? Lol

Yep! Have shot and at one time owned all the calibers on your list + more.
In addition to the one entry the 338 Lapua is one BA Round!

Is that 338 a handgun round? For some reason I thought it was rifle. Lol I really don't know much more than standard and popular calibers.

I missed the Makarov; I would like to compare that to a .380 to see if I can tell any difference. They say the 9x18 mak is a little hotter than the .380.

I think the 327 you're thinking of is an engine.

My mom carries a Makarov as her edc i have fired it on numerous occasions and its a great little gun aslong as you get american made ammo because the russian made stuff is horrible but most good companies(remington,Federal,hornady,) thankfully all make 9mm Mak now

Aren't the 308, 223. Rifle rounds? I'm just talking about handgun calibers here.

I know you guys flip through several forums so it's easy to get mixed up, but I'm pretty sure I posted this in general handgun forum.

Bit the makarov was a good catch. Totally missed that one. And what's this 22cb? First I've ever heard of it. Very intrigued!

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?
Now can I recall all the guns... lol

22lr - Phoenix HP22A, Jimenez JA22, Mossberg 715T

25acp - Beretta Jetfire 950BS, Raven MP25

380acp - Ruger LCP, Bersa Thunder

9mm - S&W Sigma, Ruger LC9, Star Firestar M43, Cobra 9mm Derringer, Jimenez JA-Nine, Taurus PT92

357mag - Taurus revolver, not sure the model, 5 shot I think

44mag - Colt Anaconda

45acp - Glock 30, Star Firestar M45

I know there's more, guns of buddies that I shot but don't really remember makes or models. Guns I've owned for very brief time and can't recall.
