If you carried every hi point made at once you wouldn't be able to walk!

as far as handgun's i have two .22's, two .32 S&W's & two 9mm's. and oddly enough, not a one of them shoots anything like the other gun i own in that same caliber

so i guess i could just keep expanding on those calibers & end up having many different shooting experiences out of the same box of shells.

Sure. Different guns do different things. I have lots of 9mm, .22, and .223s because they are cheaper to shoot but I have 38, 357, and 380s, 410, 20, and 12s. Guns are tools and you need different tools for different jobs. I don't have other calibers because I haven't needed them for anything yet.

I am sure there are all kinds of reasonable explanations as why to buy several guns in two to three or five calibers. The only valid one I can come up with is "I wanted this gun" and that is all she needs to know. I really do try to keep the calibers within the ones I already have, to keep the ammo boxes from becoming furniture.

I still haven't gone with a .40 for the sole reason that I don't want another caliber. Love the idea, just don't want to have to keep a stock of yet another ammo. Well, really only one more kind, and yes, I realize that doesn't make much sense.
