Default Do it all calibers/ all around gun etc.

I posted this as a response to another post, but it was so good I thought it needed its on thread.

I don't for the life of me understand these "one caliber for everything" questions. Its quite frankly getting annoying. There isn't one "magic" caliber that is perfect for everything. Besides if My wife hears any of this I will be in big trouble.

Here's what you NEED:
1. 223 for varmints
2. 22-250 for long range varmints
3. 22 hornet for close range varmints
4. 218 bee for close range varmints when you run out of 22 hornetammo
5. 221 firebal for varmints (you can shoot all day without barrel heat)
6. 20 vartarg for varmints (because I want one)
7. 25-06 for antelope
8.270 wsm for antelope
9. 280 rem just because
10. 30-06 everyone should have one
11. 300 win mag no particularreason
12. 338 win mag for elk and scary stuff
13. 375 for anything scarier than the 338
14. 416 for anything scarier than the 375
15. Belgium Browning A5 sweet sixteen....nuff said
16. Quality over and under 12 gauge. for pheasants, clay targets etc.
17. 22 lr if you need a reason, It won't do me any good to explain.
18. A pre 64 Model 70 in the caliber of your choice
19. A cooper rifle in the caliber of your choice
20. A Kimber rifle in the caliber of your choice
21. A 45 ACP 1911 style pistol, for protection and uspsa shoots
22. A Glock because tommy lee jones used one in "US Marshals"
23. A H&K of some order. To appreciate German engineering.
24. A wildcat cartridge of some kind. Just to say you have one.
25. A Winchester 73 lever gun. It won the west, dang it.
26. A benchrest quality rifle either 6 PPC, 6 BR, 22 ppc, 20 VT etc. to make little groups
27. On of Ackley's "improved" cartridges. He's a legend, dang it.
28. A Weatherby.....to appreciate your other rifles....[8D]
29. An EnglishDouble Rifle....Because anything that costs that much has to be good!
30. A first generation Colt.
31. A HMR .17 for general whistle pig killen
I'm sure there are more but I'm getting an ache in my wallet.

This "one gun for everything" has been doing just that for me for over 20 years now, and i've harvested moose, bear, deer, ducks, phesants, rabbits, phmarigan and much more with it for my freezer,



Includeing the nice buck pictured below that i harvested last November.
