I was looking to see if anyone else has asked the question recently about .410 ammo and came across a thread from TFG about guns we have, and love, that don’t make sense. I got to revisit my own comments from that discussion and wow… insert forehead slap here!
I was knocking .22mag compared to 17HMR… that’s changed! I still have one, but I have multiple 22mags now, and even prefer it. Now, I’m starting to wonder if 17wsm makes any sense? I haven’t shot one in a long time.
I gave .41 Rem Mag some love… and I bought multiples in this caliber, but I’m back to one. Still love the round, but cooled the jets in recent years.
I did not have a 16ga shotgun yet. Have 2 now.
I still have 28ga and even stepped up to a Beretta A400 Xplor for one. I don’t shoot it as much as when it was new, but it’s still fun. For kicks, I found a case of 3″ 28ga rounds for the O/U. Fluke find but couldn’t resist the nonsense since they were clearance priced!
I think the only thing I can add to this list is the legendary, beloved 30-30. Can’t believe how expensive those rounds have become! I don’t need any, thank God, but knock me over with a feather! It wasn’t that long ago I picked up to extra boxes because after sale and rebate, I got paid $.02 to buy them! If it weren’t for the limit on the rebate, I would have gotten more!
I do have a 35 Remington coming my way. That will be an odd one for the collection and ammo??? Holy cats! $90/box and up!
I suppose I could add the 350 Legend too… I just like the name. It doesn’t do a dang thing my 30-30 can’t, or the 20ga slug gun can’t, but I just love the name. Have yet to shoot it, but I look forward to it!
Almost forgot… I did add 10mm since the last discussion too. 41 Rem Mag… what could I possibly need a 10mm for? Doesn’t matter! I love my Glock and it shoots everything! Nothing like finding a 60gr home defense round that carries an initial MV of 2000fps! I forget the energy, but it’s through the roof at close range!
So, if anyone remembers the old thread, what’s your status 10 years later? Or, if you missed the first discussion, let us know what you like to shoot/carry/own that does not necessarily make much sense!
