What 6 guns?

There are some good choices here. Doesn't surprise me to see so many 22 rf's.

What got me to thinking along these lines was a few years ago Craig Boddington did a survey on what rifles people would have if they could only have 4. Also I have an eight gun safe so this would put me close to the limit.

I can safely say this because my wife doesn't read the forum but I pretty well have enough guns. I will be storing my brother's guns for him while he is stationed on Guam. Between us we have (3) - 8 gun safes overloaded. I want more time to hunt.

What 6 guns?

Not fair, but since I don't hunt varmints it makes my life easier. I guess for North America:
12 gauge pump
.350 rem mag model 7 custom
.35 whelen 7600
.30-06 bolt action
.50 cal muzzle loader
7mm-08 or .280 bolt action

Those would cover everything I know I'll ever hunt, but if i was going to africa add:
.458 lott double
.375 h&h bolt
an ar-15 style .223 would be fun but expensive and a pain to find in canada.

It's not that they are hard to find in Canada(half a dozen or more vendors), it is the fact that they are restricted so we would not be able to hunt with them if we had them. They are strictly a target rifle for us until the Can. gov. gets their head out of their...... Thumbs up
