    I would say you need a little and a big of everything....rifle, shotgun, handgun. Then when you get that squared away get the really big 50 cals and a cannon of coarse.

    A 12 gauge shotgun with both sport and tactical setups
    A good 9mm pistol.
    A good .45 ACP pistol.
    An AR or AK battle rifle
    A .22 rifle

    Should cover every situation. Maybe a good bolt action long-range hunting rifle and a lever-action 30-30.

    Brands/models a personal choice but mine are:

    Remington 870
    CZ P-01
    HK 45c
    Saiga 308-1 conversion
    Henry classic

    The are a lot of options and a lot of possible reasons for your suggestions (fun, affordability, historical value)

    I look forward to hearing your thoughts!

    Firearms that every gun enthusiast should own? You mean, all of them?

    Hmmmmmmmm.....

    Defensive:
    1) a polymer pistol of major caliber
    2) a 1911 in .45 acp
    3) a shotgun that you are proficient with in 12 or 20 ga.
    4) A long range bolt action rifle ( .223 for caliber cooperation with my tactical)
    5) a tactical AR ( .223)
    6) a subcompact of major caliber, preferably the same as your polymer pistol.
    7. Ruger mk3 22/45


    Fun:
    1) Semi auto 22 LR
    2) Semi Auto 22 pistol
    3) Any of the guns from the defensive list
    4) anything that brings a smile to your face

    Anything with a silencer on it.

    Any .22
    Any bolt action, like a .300 Blackout
    Any single shot, like an Encore
    Any AR with a can
    Any AK with a can
    Any centerfire pistol with a can
