I have been a silent witness
to all of America's finest hours.
But my finest hour comes
when I am torn into strips and used as bandages
for my wounded comrades on the battlefield,
When I fly at half-mast to honor my soldiers,
Or when I lie in the trembling arms
of a grieving mother
at the graveside of her fallen son.

Having dozens and dozens of calibers is fun, but if there ever was a true SHTF scenario, wouldn't it be great if we had all standardized on .223,.308 and 9MM so that everyone's ammo would fit everyone else's weapon?
I have at least 20 calibers in my safe, but in all honesty, .22 LR, .223,.308, .375 H&H and 9MM would cover me for any situation anywhere in the world.
