I have numerous calibers, but I prefer to keep to a single caliber per platform.
Four M&P's, all in 9mm; my 1911's are all .45acp, glocks are all 9mm, etc. It just really simplifies logistics and pretty much prevents the risk of mis-matching guns & magazines, etc.
I've been seriously tempted by the .300 blackout round. Imo it may well be the be the best caliber option for a defensive AR carbine, with the exception of ammo cost. But the main reason I haven't taken the plunge is that all my AR's are chambered in 5.56 (except one in .223 Wylde, which can use 5.56), and having a second caliber using the same platform & even same magazines, complicates things enough to put it outside my comfort zone. So far, at least; never know when I may talk myself into it...

Multiple calibers give you better odds of finding ammo you can use during "shortages."
I have handguns and long guns in a variety of calibers.

I'm a Full-Time RVer, so I don't have room to stock multiple calibers (in bulk).
While I do have a MKIII, 10/22 and an NAA MiniMag, my pistols are 9mm and my revolvers are .357.
Even my Sub2000 is 9mm.

.38, .357, and .40 2 of each caliber.
My purposes are for how I have to dress for certain occasions. Kinda like women, shoes and hand bags.

i bought the 40FS for my first handgun because it could shoot multiple calibers.
i added a 40 to 9 SL conversion barrel and a S&W 357 Sig barrel also.
i also have a 40c, a 9mm Shield and a S&W 642 38 special revolver.
i may end up buying a 1911 so that'll add 45 ACP to the mix.

Let me ask a variant: multiple calibers first or duplicates of current firearm battery? I believe in having multiple caliber capabilities for versatility but do you buy two firearms (1 = none, 2 = one) in each caliber before adding a new caliber/firearm platform?
I currently have an M&P 45, Ruger GP100, and an M&P15 rifle. I really want to buy a .308 rifle but I'm thinking I should double up on my current battery before branching out?

I have multiple calibers in pistols and revolvers. With the availability of ammo being a crap shoot at times, multiple calibers at least give you increased odds of finding ammo for your firearms. Sorta like not putting all your eggs in one basket. But I do still focus on one or two calibers to concentrate my practice on for personal carry.
