    Wink Don't let your wives read this one.

    I've only lived here in Alaska for 42 years, but this 'arsenal' has gotten me by:

    .22, .44, 12ga., 30-06.

    Probably pretty boring for the 'enthuasists', but it's put plenty of meat on the table over the years and provides for adaquate self defense.

    Rifle and handgun battery that I have been using for years. In reality I don't need anything else since the .338WM has been the only big game rifle I have used for several years now, and brings moose meat to my table each year.

    .338 WM, Hogue stock, Timney trigger, and Leupold Vary-X III 2.5-8x scope.
    .454 Casull, Freedom Arms with a 7-1/2" barrel, express sights, and Magna-Ported.

    The Casull is my backup handgun, loaded with 330+ grain Corborn hard-cast ammo. I would only use it to put a moose down at close range, or perhaps to shoot a bear that charges when I am making a deposit into a hole on the ground while hunting

    The rifle battery will be complete some day, and will look as follows:
    .338WM
    .270
    .22LR (Ruger 10/22 with a target barrel, titanium extractor, and synthetic stock, plus a Red Dot sight on top).

    P.S. No long-range shooting for me. My range is anything within 300 yards, and my longest shot on moose has been 275 yards. If I were a long-range hunter then the caliber would be in .338 launching a 250-grain bullet around 2,850-2,900 fps.

    Good point made.

    That would cover my NEEDS too, but I guess, I'm an "enthusiast", since I have a few MORE than my Needs.

    Spend your $$ on ammo, its drying up.
    I buy ammo in bulk, like food.

    Did I mention my SAKO M-39 was 150$?
    That I bought ammo at 62$ for 800 rds.

    My .22LR Romy Trainer was 75$,
    5,000rd case of rem gold.22lr was 90$ a wack?

    My rem 870 12G.3"mag was abuy at 250$, and reloaded 3" mags #2 steel is about 12$ a box

    My 9mm was 300$ and I got the ammo when it was 110$ a thousand.

    All are very accurate, or I sell them.

    You dont need big $$ to go shooting.

    You need accuracy and the skill.

    Buying so much ammo allows me to practise because "I can", and keeps the skills sharp.

    keep on shootn'
    If you can't Kill it with a 30-06, you should Hide.

    I like the AA batterys but the price keeps goin up so I got some rechargables, now those are handy.

    1) old fashion .06
    2) old fashion FAL
    3) old fashion M39 .22

    Is this a bug out list? or just a cool to have list, cause I could keep goin . I'm not a big hand gunner but the S&W 500 or the XD .45acp pack pretty well.

    --Redhawk .44 for bears
    --Rem 788 in .223 for predators
    --Wby Ultralightweight .280 for mountain animals
    --Wby MkV Stainless .300 Wby for general hunting rifle
    --Rem 11-87 12 ga in case I ever do any waterfowl hunting up there.
    --Colt Woodsman .22 pistol for bunnies or grouse

    I still need (want) to add a .375 for big bears. Not sure what make/model it will be yet.

    Also haven't gotten into CCW yet, so I may add a Sig P229 in .40 S&W or something like that for that purpose.

    Is there ever such a thing as a "complete" battery be it for AK or anywhere else?

    I surely hope not as I have entirely too much fun "discovering" and using as many new rifles and calibers as I can afford and then some LOL!!!
