Three calibers? Let's see: .38 Short Colt, .38 Long Colt, .38 Special, .357 Magnum, 9mm Parabellum, 9mm Glisenti. That makes SIX! O.K., so that's stretching it a little, and some of those don't weight down too many dealer's shelves.
One I was invited for a hunt using black powder only. I didn't have a cap-and-ball revolver, but demonstrated to the property owner that my Ruger .357 loaded with .38 Short Colt cartridges was no more of a threat than the front-loaders. He allowed me to hunt.
