What 6 guns?

I am here at work, things are slow, and there is nothing to hunt. So I hope the readers will indulge me in a question. If you were limited to 6 long guns for ALL of your hunting what calibers & actions would they be? No fair having an Encore with umpteen barrels. For this question each barrel would count as one of your guns. I'll go first.

.22 rf bolt action
.50 or 54 cal Hawken style muzzle loader
12 ga pump shotgun
.375 H&H bolt action (I like it for most of my big game hunting)
.243 bolt action (I am not a real dedicated varminter & this is a cross over rig)
.30/30 lever

My only qualification would be the centerfire rifles would have to shoot my handloads. I don't do factory ammunition.

.22 lr auto
.223 auto
12 gauge pump
30-30 Marlin lever
.308 bolt

Call me crazy, but for what I hunt I could do without the .338 and .223. I just wanted to get a full six.
