Well, I can see both sides or to put is a different way I don't like the idea if pushed to either extreme.
If I handed someone a tricked out Remington 870 and a second barrel. This is the ultimate one gun arsenal IMHO. Good for hunting and personal protection from squirrels to Grs. Bear. It can take everything in the world if used correctly, BUT man it would suck hunting antelope in Wyoming especially if the other hunters were using Rem M700 in 270 with scopes.
The flip side is the people who have 300 or 500 different guns. There is no time to learn all the different intricacies of each gun.
I think the above list is complete, but as stated above I don't have all of those guns covered. For other areas, I have multiples as I continue to find something better.
