Welcome to the Forum - I think what you have now is a great collection. The .06 alone will do just about anything needing done in a SHTF scenario. The .223's can have ammo found everywhere.

NEED is a personal opinion. If you think you need more, you will probably find a weapon that makes perfect sense to you to own.

At least that is how it works for me.

Sounds like a fine collection ! Welcome !
An accurate 22lr rifle and a quality 12g might
make it easier for small game. Hand gun for
me is important, also.

I'm also a vet from 1966-70, with 11 months
in and around Danang.

Sounds like you have it pretty well covered except for a couple of 12 ga pump guns.

Thank you for your service. I've got your 6, from Central Texas.

Good job on the 300 Wmag. Thats what alot of our boys are sniping with these days, as it packs some extra wallop that the ol 7.62 cant provide.

I know Navy distance shooters use it alot, That and the .338 Lapua.

You could do a lot worse than what you have. Link- scroll WAY down the left side, look for article called "Minimum Battery". Author is a friend who is faculty at Virginia Tech. THE NEW RIVER VALLEY OUTDOORSMAN

While a shotgun has much less range than any rifle, there are times they are very useful, and a handgun is much more portable.
