        I'd like to have a lever action in .35 Rem. Just because.

          For some reason I've got the hots for a 375 H&H

            I've got a few I'd like to have, but nothing I'm really pining for. Something bigger than what I'll likely ever need, like a 338, 375 or 416, just because. Something small for coyotes like a 5.56 (preferably in a scout rifle type platform) or a 243. I could use another 22 because that single shot cricket ain't cutting it. I really like deer calibers though, something like a 257 Bob, 25-06, or 260 would be nice, along with upgrading to a nicer 270. Oh and a 16ga double or A5. And I am looking at getting another handgun soon, so I'll throw 45 or 9mm on the list since all I currently have is a 38spl. Eventually I'm sure I'll get around to buying a muzzleloader to take advantage of the special seasons, and I'm leaning more towards a 54cal flintlock or percussion rather than the 50cal inline that seems to be the standard now.

              Yes.. and no.. and I don't know.

              Caliber's I'm pretty content with, though an SA in .308 I have a hankering for, I already have a Savage 11 chambered for it.

              If a great opportunity for a .50BMG or a 2 bore popped up I'd think about it real hard, but I certainly don't need one.

              A one pounder has also crossed the mind as a fun toy.

              If I'm to take to heart all of the "the founders meant muskets" folks I'd also like to own a 24 gun ship of the line... er.. I mean armed trading ship as that was acceptable if you had the means.

                I've got a few more I will eventually get, but don't quite need yet. .300 or 338 win mag, 416 rem or rigby, and a .44 revolver with a 7.5 inch barrel for deer hunting. Other than those, I am set....unless the right deal comes up.

                  Need (?) a .22 Hornet. Had one for years.
                  I killed a wider variety of game with that rifle than I did with any other gun I've ever owned.

                  Then there's the Ruger No.1 in .300 H&H Magnum. Not that I NEED one!
                  A No. 1 in .308 Win can be rechambered to .300 H&H. I want the barrel remarked "Hollands Super .30", the cartridges original designation.

                    I try to avoid the word "need" when discussing firearms.
                    It is too hard to defend.

                      I owned a Model 70 in .375 H&H Magnum a while back, but got rid of it because the recoil was horrendous.
                      It could have been a contributing factor to a torn retina I suffered at the time.

                        I have a .44 Magnum revolver (S&W Model 29) that can shoot .44 Special loads, but I would like to have a revolver chambered for the .44 Special, like the S&W Model 24-3.

                          Wow, that's pretty bad. Perhaps I need to send some range time with my brother's Ruger #1 in 375 H&H to get the feeling before deciding to get one. He's taken that one to Africa several times

                            Have you thought of the .41 ?

                              Shoot off hand for less felt recoil.
