      What's your current "Gun Lust"?

      Anybody else feel like sharing what they are currently lusting after in the realm of semi-autos?

      Ever since seeing VAMarine's 10/22 project, I've been looking at them since Dad and I have quite a selection of 22 rifles here at home. My looking led me to searching out a cheap carbine that I could strip down, work on, install into a ZK-22 stock and make myself a nice little tactical plinker. I have enough handguns (for now), and I think it's time for me to build another rifle. It's been over a year since I built up my Mosin-Nagant, and I have the long-gun bug biting me.

      I'm also lusting after a long-gun chambered in either 308 Winchester or 7mm-08, but I've found it difficult to find accessible areas here in Iowa to shoot something like that at it's potential, and merely shooting paper at 100 yards wouldn't cut it.

      So, what are you drooling over? What do you find yourself on gunbroker lusting after? Care to share?

      I'm in the middle of an AR pistol build so right now I want to get that done. Maybe do a 9mm AR next?

      Nice projects and wish lists so far. Glad to see them.

      Ya know, I hate that I can't find a base model 10/22 with a .920 bull barrel 18.5" long (or shorter but threaded for a comp) to use as the base of my ZK22. I'm cheap and don't want to have to buy a new barrel. I think (JMHO) the 10/22 in bullpup configuration needs that beefy barrel otherwise it looks silly. Sometimes lust is frustrating. Am I right?

      My present desire is much simpler for a change. I'm just trying to decide on a single stack 40 for CC and which piece to sell or trade for it.

      I'm just trying to come up with the money for a Ruger LCR 9mm - a gun which I had zero interest in a month ago.

      Semi-auto only?
      That leaves me out.

      I'm hoping that, before I die, some really nice person will give me a cherry Swiss K31 rifle and 1,000 rounds (in Swiss stripper-clips).
      I have in mind some serious experimenting to do with it.

      I think that, with just a little modification, it will make a superb Scout Rifle.

      Cait43, ya been busy huh??
      Nice choices. My Son has the Rhino, and I have the Ruger SR1911CMD. Both are GREAT guns as I'm sure you already know. My Ruger is not the lightweight like yours, but I have handled the LW at my LGS. Definitely a nice handgun.

      As a newer handgun user, it has not taken me long to want more (and more, and..............). My first purchase was a Walther PPS 9mm, and I just took delivery last week of a Ruger LCP Custom .380. I am exceptionally pleased with both. However, a 1911 has GOT to be in my (hopefully, not too) distant future; I think they are absolutely beautiful. I would expect in the coming months I will also purchase a .22LR, although only now looking at what configuration as there are many out there with which I'd be very happy. For weeks all of my spare time has been with my face buried in a gun magazine, or online viewing (and sorting out the good/bad) videos of reviews.

      And of course, (don't hate me), I will get a Glock. I've shot three thus far - the 42, the 43, and the 19, however I'm leaning currently to the a 27.

      My JRC9TD, Carbine:

      AND my Glock 19, Gen 4:

      These have all been purchased in the past couple of months! I think I'm done for a while... UNLESS something special catches my eye.

      Lusting? Same one I have been lusting after for years, a Browning Hi Power in 9mm. Expensive, and you don't see them very often around here.

      I screwed up a couple of years ago when my LGS had a Browning Hi Power in beautiful condition, and I didn't buy it! I have never forgotten the one that "got away"!

      Seriously lusting for the Sig 320 with the new Romeo 1 optics mounted to co-witness. If I can find a good holster that will be my new carry gun.

      Taurus pt111 G2, Taurus pt22, Ruger LCP Custom, and a GSG 1911-22. My wife has a Ruger LCR 22lr and we also have an H&R revolver that my daughter shoots when we go to the range. They are all good shooting guns and have been mostly trouble free. The pt22 is ammo picky so I get issues occasionally with it depending on the ammo. The GSG is my favorite to shoot and I carry the Ruger LCP which is a pretty good shooter as well.. My wife carries the LCR. The others are just back ups or range guns.

      A dear friend of mine had one back in the early 90s and when I shot it I fell deeply in love with it. I asked him to let me have first dibs on that gun should he ever decide to part with it. Sadly, he got in a tight spot and sold it without checking with me first. A few years after that he passed away. Finally a couple of years ago I stumbled upon one still new in the box for a price I just couldn't pass up. It is the finest handgun I own.
