Re: OK - could you cover ALL 'gun needs' with 42 firearms...???

My 'start' if going from scratch, and having to deal with existing cartridges and 'platforms', would be: 1. Ruger Redhawk 45 ACP/Colt. It covers CCW yet can reach out for home defense and hunting; compatable with 1911's and Marlin 1894's. 2. Marlin 1894 in 45 Colt. Better range, easy to shoot and re...
