those 3 calibers will cover all the bullet weights for almost all concievable needs,, if u need to stop a tank well then ?? run and hide or get out the canons
I just caught this one.
If you have to survive, that may mean MOVING, as in walking through fields and living off the land.
One rifle is ALL I want to carry under these circumstances, anything more is too much gear along with other needs.
That's how I percieve "all around".
And just to throw in my opinion, I consider the .357 to be the "all around" pistol caliber, despite my love of the .45LC.
We're talking all around, not favorites, and the practical and utilitarian in me says ready availability.
