Default What's in your "Battery of Guns"?

Before I even had any guns, I read this great article by Massad Ayoob about having a "Battery of Guns":
http://www.backwoodshome.com/articles2/ayoob114.html

Basically a single firearm is not enough because everything has a different purpose. Ayoob's categories:

1) The .22
2) The Shotgun
3) The High Powered Rifle
4) The Defensive Handgun

My list:
1) M&P 15-22 (It's really just a range toy but I guess it counts)
2) IAC 982 12-gauge
3) Don't have one! (Well, I have a few C&Rs) Saiga 7.62x39
4) Either G19, M&P45 or GP100. (If I had to pick just one it would be a very tough choice)

What's in your battery?

I like "List Your List of Guns" threads almost as much has "what's the best SHTF _____" threads.

This is a concept I first read about many years ago in "Survival Guns". I try to always keep it in my mind when deciding what I need.

BTW: Mel Tappan died decades ago and while much in this book is outdated, I found it enlightening.

Few of each, but my "go-to" list:

1) Kel-Tec SU-22 - .22LR
2) Remington 870 - 12ga
3) Bushmaster ACR - 5.56 and 6.8 as soon as the barrels are available, hopefully in August
4) Glock 21C - .45ACP (have a fixed full length KKM barrel for night/HD use, which is the normal config - and the pièce de résistance - 10mm longslide conversion).

2) Mossberg 590A1 (18.5" barrel)
3) Springfield M1A Scout Squad
4) Glock 17

I think something in 5.56/.223 will come after the .22...and then a .308 bolt gun...and then...

1) The .22

4) The Defensive Handgun

1) Sig Trailside
2) None, never liked them, never will
3) Not sure what that means, I have bolt and semi 308's, semi 223's
4) Glock 17, it runs like my beater Seiko. If that doesn't cut it, I will break out my HK P30L
