As I recall that pretty much covers them for me.
Not a lot but loved it all.
So list the nationalists of the women I’ve know?
all joking aside, I have no idea of all the guns I have shot. it would be way more than I wanna type. we had a machine gun club and everyone shot others guns. I have shot numerous semi and bolt guns. no clue how many and what brands. I do know a few offhand, but no way I would remember them all.
From my standpoint that’s a lot.
I’m too embarassed to show my list. It’s very short
Nice list @Grenz45 and I can first-hand all your list except 3 and 31. It would suggest your experience was with Cobra-Hueys, I was a bit closer to the ground with riverine gun boats in our struggle to “break-even” with Uncle Ho.
You got that right.
2nd Armored Cavalry Regiment HHT AirTroop as a 19D2-F. (We were actually the Prototype Test for Enlisted as Combat Air Crew Members, but that’s another story)
But I didn’t care for the Cobras and my service was mostly as an Air Scout in OH-58 A and C Kiowas.
Much more activity and excitement.
But we did cross-train a little for the Cobras as well.
NO SUCH THING!!!
Your List will grow with time.
Many in my list are from my Military time.
I was very lucky VERY LUCKY to participate in some really off the wall programs.
Here is something else to think about folks.
I put together a meet not long ago and invited everyone here.
I call it The History Gathering.
If you had attended you could have added 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 26 to your own list.
That is what my group of friends had intended when we set it up.
Come On Out and Shoot History.
We had fun and introduced some really inexperience folks to shooting and the History tied to those firearms.
We were there to learn, shoot, and experience.
Nobody give a damn how we grouped on targets or anything thing else like that.
It was simply for the enjoyment and pride of being able to say “I Shot One Of Those!!”
Great Time we will do again this year.
I just wish we had better participation. Perhaps next time.
I’ll focus on the cartridges themselves and on firearms only. Off the top of my head that I can remember.
- .22 LR
- .22 WMR
- .223 / 5.56
- .308 / 7.62x51
- 9x18 Makarov
- 9x19 Luger
- 9x25 Dillon
- .357 Mag
- .40 S&W
- .45 ACP

Huh, the beginnings of Alzheimer have kicked in cause I can’t remember everything that I’ve shot over the years.
It just might take me a month to report back anything I can possibly remember other than what I have in my possession today, but some of you folks are definitely shooters that’s for sure
Good for you guys!
