    Have you shot, or not, but really want to? Or have ya fired them all?

    Shot:
    22lr
    25acp
    380acp
    9mm
    357mag
    44mag
    45acp

    Don't really care to bother with the 22short or mag, nor 32acp or 38sp. 45gap means nothing to me, same goes for the big bore 50cals. 45lc maybe but I've heard the factory loads are weak sauce these days, so not too interested.

    I could've sworn I've shot 40sw, but I just can't recall when or where, so that's on my to do list!

    Any I've missed? What about you all?

    *chuckle* :)

    Yes, a number that are not on the list- but have shot (or own) all that are on there.

    I have shot all on your list, and then some. Many, many rounds of .45 Colt and .44 Special. Not so many .41 Long Colt, .38 S&W, .32 Magnum, .32 S&W Long, .44 Henry, .41 R.F., plus a smattering of wildcat loads in Thompson Contenders, and a few .31, .36, and .44 caliber cap-and-ball.

    Probably a few others that don't come to mind now.

    I once shot french fries out of my Sig P226. Ok, it was actually a dream. I ran out of bullets after zombies were trying to break into the house. So, I put french fries into the gun. Normally, my guns do not work at all when I dream, so I got lucky this time. I have really strange dreams when I am stressed. :eek:

    The only thing I have not shot that I want to shoot, is the .338 Lapua.

    I know there are tons of less popular or hardly produced calibers. Anything you haven't shot but want to?

    Very cool Bob! What was the 32mag like? That's something I'm somewhat interested in trying some day.

    I have covered that list. I'd prefer to never fire another .25acp or whatever that Saturday night special .32 was I tried. Don't forget .38 special though; it is great for target plinking. I also like firing the 7.62x25mm rounds from my CZ52 in the dusk to see the fireball, same for my BP revolver in .44 lead round ball.

    I would like to fire one of the bigger handguns like the 454 casull and of course a 10mm from a 1911.

    The makarov I've thought about, but not too turned on by it. I should admit, the 357sig and 10mm are somewhat intriguing!

    Isn't there a 327 also? Or is that an engine? Lol

    Yep! Have shot and at one time owned all the calibers on your list + more.
    In addition to the one entry the 338 Lapua is one BA Round!

    Is that 338 a handgun round? For some reason I thought it was rifle. Lol I really don't know much more than standard and popular calibers.

    I missed the Makarov; I would like to compare that to a .380 to see if I can tell any difference. They say the 9x18 mak is a little hotter than the .380.

    I think the 327 you're thinking of is an engine.

    My mom carries a Makarov as her edc i have fired it on numerous occasions and its a great little gun aslong as you get american made ammo because the russian made stuff is horrible but most good companies(remington,Federal,hornady,) thankfully all make 9mm Mak now

    Aren't the 308, 223. Rifle rounds? I'm just talking about handgun calibers here.

    I know you guys flip through several forums so it's easy to get mixed up, but I'm pretty sure I posted this in general handgun forum.

    Bit the makarov was a good catch. Totally missed that one. And what's this 22cb? First I've ever heard of it. Very intrigued!
