1 or 2 typically. I try to bring every thing the same caliber so ill take my 1895 and my BFR because both are 45-70s or ill take my marlin and my Coonan Because both are 357 magnums.
Shot placement is everything! I would rather take a round of 50BMG to the foot than a 22short to the base of the skull.
all 26 of my guns are 45/70 govt, 357 mag, 22 or 12 ga... I believe in keeping it simple. Wish my wife did as well...
