Default shot, rim, center and air

what do you use for what? meaning, what do you plink and with what? what do you hunt and hunt with? target? calibers?

i have never fired a center fire but i own the other 3. i plink with .22lr, .177 and 20 gauge. i use my red ryder to take the heads off of dollar store army men (how is it so damn accurate?!), .22 and pellet guns for what trash i have in the yard (i need to pick those bottles up) and 20 gauge to blow up hatter filled milk jugs.

i do a little paper punching but i need to get a new air rifle for that (i dont like aiming firearms beyond 90* from the ground for safty reasons (i try to get the ground in my sight picture to stop misses)).

i dont do much hunting or pest control but its fun trying to hit small birds and bugs with a daisy powerline 880.

Plinking? Safe full of 22s- pick one out.

Air rifle? Sheridan Blue Streak- 5mm

Shotgun? 12.16. 20. 410. Usually for dove season.

That is, before that HORRIBLE boating accident where everything went to the bottom of Unreachable Bay in a strong storm........
