    In another thread someone mentioned that having 10 of any one caliber can be seen as an "arsenal" by law enforcement. I am not sure if that is true or not, but it made me think "whew, I am safe" since I do not have that many of any single caliber.

    Which calibers do you have the most and least of in your collection? Let's limit it to handgun calibers in this thread. :)

    My numbers are as follows...

    .45colt - 6
    .45acp - 7
    .44mag - 4
    10mm - 2
    .40S&W - 3
    .357mag - 6
    .357sig - 4
    9mm - 4
    .38spl - 4
    .380acp - 5
    .32acp - 1

    good job you diversified there! Otherwise those 46 handguns would have definitely been seen as an arsenal!

    Mine hardly constitutes a collection!

    .380 - 1
    9mm - 2

    I sure would like to see that law/rule. It really sounds like more groundless internet fear-mongering to me.

    Let's see - calibers - handguns I take it?

    9mm - 1
    .38 - 3
    .357 - 6
    .44 mag - 1
    .45acp - 5
    .45LC - 1


    Hmm, 17? Not in Playboy's league, but still, I thought I had more handguns. I think I will have to fix that problem...

    Man after my own heart. I have .500 S&W in 4" revolver and Thompson Center Encore rifle. I think the 10 1/2" barrel revolver is in my future.

    Collection is lacking 44 mag :(

    Most: .357 Mag

    ETA: forgot that I also have a .357 Mag rifle, so that's my most prevalent handgun caliber.

    .45acp would be the most I have of, least would be either .38 special or .454

    Most would be .40, second .22 with a .25 for good measure.

    Since I started reloading .45 ACP that is what I have the most of by far.
    .38 special is next, then 9mm. will reload both of those next since I found some small pistol primers at the gun show!
    .22, .40, .45 LC, .380, .357 and .223 make up the rest.
    10 boxes of one caliber makes an arsenal! Hmmmm, getting close, may have to go shoot some .45 ACP.....or slow down my reloading....I guess I'm OK, I'd have to buy more brass to have 10 boxes.

    2- 40's
    and thats it for pistols I've got my eye on 2 more pistols... another 40 and a 22... just getting into the reloading...
    already have 1400 round of 40 brass, 500 fmj bullets, a 1000 primers need to find the powder now.....

    working on my ammo collection...:thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:buying a couple of boxes every week...

    hard to buy bigger items like firearms when I'm not working, puts a major crimp in extra money...:(:(:(
