I started trying to buy specialized guns for every "need." I hit 5 shotguns. A trap gun, two shot utility, pump, and semi-auto. Before long I realized I was spreading my practice between them so much that I wasn't worth a darn with any of them. Now a semi-auto with screw in chokes for clays and defense. One single shot with a polychoke for squirrels camping and hiking. Once I realized it with shotguns I saw the same thing with other guns. Glock 27 is my only defensive pistol.
An encore "pistol" that has a 460 barrel for deer and will probably end up with a 204 ruger or 22-250 barrel for varmints.
More than one 22 though
Now that I read that I haven't done that well at paring them down, have I?
