Ok, let's say for whatever reason (personal, economical, political, etc.) you were limited to two handguns, two rifles and one shotgun what would you choose?

The handguns must be one rimfire and one centerfire.
The rifles must be one rimfire and one centerfire.
The shotgun is any you want.

Which guns and CALIBERS/GAUGE would you choose?

Gun choices...

Two Glock 23's in 40 S&W. One stays home for the wife.
One 243 Browning A-bolt composit Stalker.
One T/C Black Diamond .50 muzzle loader.
Remington 12 ga 1100 Auto.

Pretty much what I have now... :D

My government has deemed handguns to be "evil", so I know nothing about them and can't comment.

Rimfire rifles are of interest to me for plinking only, so I'd probably go with my model 90 Winchester.

Centrefire Rifles are my primary interest, and my current darling is my Remington 7600 in .35 Whelen (although I like almost all of them that don't have a bolt).

As for a shotgun, I don't use it much, but I like the feel of my IGA Condor although wish it had automatic ejectors.

Well, I don't do much small game hunting up here so here's my list:
Handguns a 1911 Colt 45 for house protection and a 500 Linebaugh for bear protection while fishing.

Rifles:
7x57 for deer, sheep, goats, caribou and small moose.
338 Win Mag for bears and big moose.

Shotgun:
I'd take Browning Sweet 16.

The rifles would be the old Remington 510 Range Master that my Dad gave me (my first gun) when I was nine years old... That old rifle sure holds some dear memories... The centerfire would be .30-06 because of it's wide range of bullet weights and powders. It can be loaded to very nearly equal .223 or .224 performance right on up to, heavier bullets boardering on magnum performance, and is good for just about anyting in the US except brown bears...
Handguns would be my little .22 rimfire single shot revolver and my S&W 629 stainless .357 6 inch... Not so sure about he shot gun though, but will pick my Winchester Ranger Deer Combo in 12 gauge..
