    I've stayed with .38SPL & .357MAG since I began shooting. Recently traded off my 12ga. for .410 in a HD/fun gun. And I've gotten out of 9mm d/t the ammo shortage. I'm currently deciding if I want to get into .40S&W (availability) or .380ACP (concealibility)...

    I've been moving to 9mm for my main pistol caliber for the last 2 years. Lately I'm starting to think I should start moving to 40 as it's has been easier to find cheaper ammo for practice lately.

    12 gage, .22lr, 5.56, 7.62x51, .40 and .45

    doesn't mean I don't still have too many others like .380, 9mm, 7mm mag, 8mm, .44mag, etc.

    I started with 9. Now I shoot 22lr, 380, 9, 40, 45, 38/357, 5.7, 7.62, 5.56, 20g and 12g. I'll shoot whatever I'm in the mood and what's readily available

    .22lr, .38/.357, .40S&W, .308, 12g. I also have a couple of .30WCF & a .30-06. And may have a .30 carbine coming soon. Got away from .380 & 9mm. SWSBO uses the same except a 20g instead of 12g.

    .22lr, .40, .45LC, 410, 12, 223/5.56, 54R for now

    I shoot for fun and variety right now, so im adding more and more, and will trim down once I figure out what I like. Plan on adding 500 Mag, .308, 762x39, .380, 45acp and whatever additional calibers my milsurp purchases require

    Shotguns started with a 20gauge > 12gauge >16gauge. These days, I pretty much shoot 16's for everything I care to.

    Started .22LR > .270 > .284 > 30-06 > .300winmag > .308 > .223 - Settled into .223, 30-06, and .308, though I still shoot the .300winmag at the 1000 yard range. I reload everything but the .270 and .22LR. (.270 is for sale)

    Pistols started .22LR, .25acp, .32acp, .357mag, .38spl / 9mm, .40, .41mag, .44mag, .45acp - These days, I shoot 9mm for target, .40 and .45 for EDC, and .41/.44mag for hunting. I still reload for most of these.. don't have a .25 anymore though.
