Where the fook am I going to park the howitzer??

If it's a tow behind, it will go in the RV and boat parking area.  You could probably get away with parking an M55 there, it's sorta like an RV.

If there's a "shortage" of 9, 45, and 556, most of these guys will have to go bowling instead of the range.

I've always tried to make it a point to never discuss how many or what I have or don't have all at once in public. But what I will say is I'll never have a caliber thats not something I might find laying around after a zombie attack.

I shoot many many more .22lr than any other caliber. More trigger time, less $

.223 is competition loads for 100/200/300/600yd

I still have polymer coated Wolf .223 left from the start, when it wasn't the ammo holding me back while I learned the skills with a service rifle. So Wolf's is for playing.

.45/70 is the next to load, as I'm all out and it really is a fun Henry to shoot. Esp with Unique powder puff loads that break 1000fps on a 405gr round. And you can shoot it all day without the recoil of full house loads.

If you don't already reload, you should seriously consider it, esp now. But remember DON'T BE AN A$$HOLE.

Actually, their agenda got a real boost with a 6.5 carcano in big-D (but that's a horse of another color)

Consider who the zombies might be in today's situ. The door bangers? hmmm...

I am actually a big fan of 45 GAP.  Much a mix of 45 ACP and 40 s&w in shooting characteristics.  Not as slow cycling as 45 ACP.  Big fan of 230 grain in 45 GAP... Besides... it is GLOCK Auto Pistol... so that means its more gooder.

Using the 2x4 glock slide to bridge the gap.

I turned everything in even the Daisy Red Ryder. I was going to wait for a buyback, but what the heck.    I also joined the Democrat Party and I am waiting for my free monthly checks to start arriving and a free phone.  Are Louisville Sluggers assault weapons?

 If I was going to have ammunition and guns, I would focus on a main caliber in handguns and a main rifle caliber as well as 22s.  I would additionally want a second and third caliber just in case the first chosen caliber was unavailable.
