You’ve got one in the teens, 20s, 30s - you need one in the 40s now. Maybe a .40-65, .44-40, .45 colt, -.45-70/90/110/120 you know...real men’s calibers :lol:
There's still a few of Wile. E Coyote's ideas that I haven't tried yet.

Too many shotguns, not enough milsurps!
And maybe some pistol-caliber levers would be fun.
You should have at least seven .22LR, one for each day of the week.
And an air-rifle.
I'm not sure this list has an end :-)

While I don't think one 12g is too many shotguns ( :D ) I reckon blade is right there's soooooo many more to go. Stix is on the right track a wildcat of some sort would fit nicely in the harem and maybe a pcp air rifle(what other semi-auto can ya have without f@#kin around with cat c) a nice .44mag lever or 45/70 !!!
F@#k I love shopping with other people's money!!! :lol: :lol: :drinks:

I recommend cast lead in a straight wall cartridge - very different to your modern calibers.
