    I want a 74 so I can shoot 5.45. I had an ar upper but the mags were horrible. I would love a 74.

    Generally, I have stayed with all the popular calibers. 223, 308, 22, 9, 40, 45, 357, 44, 12

    I have tried some oddballs but the popular calibers are that for a reason.

    I have 12 (gauge) listed in mine........

    I tried to get into 30-30, 30.06, 17HMR and 45-70 but they didn't stick. Loved them at the time but now, meh.

    Rifles: Anything less than a .458 is effeminate and offensive
    Pistols: if its not .45 or up - embarrassing...
    Shotguns- 10 or less
    Bigger is better baby....
