Everyone should own an open sight 30-30, an 870 in 20 ga and 12, a marlin model 60 or ruger 10/22, a Weatherby .257 mag (best gun in existence, it's a scientific fact!), a good wheel gun (.357 mag or better), a safe queen like a higher end over under, a good semi auto self defense pistol (glock, s&w, ruger, sig), a good AR, and I guess you can throw a 700 in the list for a bang around truck gun.

I agree. You can have 10 ARs that are all different calibers, sizes, weights, close quarters and long range heck you can even build a pistol AR only thing missing is the AR15 shotgun unless you count the M26

If I had to choose say 10

1. 870 can't beat a good pump
2. 10/22.
3. Bolt 223 or 22-250 for the small stuff
4. 30-30
5. Bolt 308
6. 1911
7. Ak if it ever hits the fan
8. Ar15 someone besides 223 probably 300bo or 6.8
9. Glock 17
10. Semi auto shotgun

Could go on what brand etc but that would probably be my list of i had to narrow down to 10 practical guns to own.
