    My brother in law is retired LE and a firearms instructor, he has a crazy collection of firearms and tens of thousands of rounds stored (no, he’s not the weirdo sort, hes the: super fun to go shooting with sort!) I want to pick him up a few boxes of oddball ammo for Christmas. The kinda stuff that sits on the shelf and is a conversation starter more than anything. Anyone have input or opinions on what to buy him? He has a wide range of fire arms but his primary calibers are: 9mm (of course), .38, .357, .380, .25, .40, .22, .223, .308, 45-70, .300 .45, 10mm, and pretty much all the shotgun gauges…even the oddball ones. (I mean really, I left a bunch out, he has a lot of fun toys, lol)

    Again, I cant stress this enough, both he and I are well versed in the standard stuffs. I am looking for goofy, expensive, off the wall weird shit. Fire away folks! (pun intended!)

    I’d been talking about getting something oddball for a while. So my dad showed up last Christmas and gave me a Ruger No. 1 in 416 Rigby. It’s not the most oddball thing out there, but it’s not exactly common either. I don’t hunt anymore, so it’s just a range toy and conversation piece. I love the look on people’s faces when I pull a round out of the box. And it’s well worth the $12 a shot for the facial expressions and comments after they pull the trigger the first time.

    Not an odd caliber, but a bit out of the norm.

    I love the dragons breath idea.

    I know it’s not crazy out there/oddball, but 7.62×25 might be good. Cool soviet era surplus at about .30cpr. Blazing fast pistol round with a reputation for being able penetrate soft body armor and it’s something he could actually use. Tarkov pistols are easy to find at just over $200
