Gun buying plans
What are your realistic plans for future firearm purchases. I have kinda a long list, but it will be scattered out over the next ten years or so. post your wish lists. Here's mine in no particular order Handguns: 1911 probably Taurus or Springer, Walther P99, Makarov, Beretta M-9, Browning Hi-power, Kahr PM-9, Beretta Tomcat .32, Kel Tec P-32, NAA mini revolver, Ruger GP-100, Colt Vest Pocket model 1908 .25
Long arms: M-1 Carbine, .22 Bolt action with magazine (I'm still deciding what brand/make and model), Mossberg 500, and M-4 Carbine
My wish list consists of only two guns: a pre-safety Marlin 336 .30-30 that I will lightly modify with a scout scope and a few other things, and a Steyr Scout .308. I'll also get a plain, bead-sighted 18" barrel for my 870.
I will liquidate three guns from my battery: a Browning Buckmark .22, my M4gery, and my Mauser-actioned pseudo-scout.
The only gun that I want right now is the M&P 9 Compact. Of course, as soon as I get one, there will be something else I need.
#1. Finish building my 2nd AR15
#2. Wilson Combat 1911 .45acp
Then I'm done for a while... :smt033
i'm aiming for a keltec PLR-16 next, after that i might get one of the new single-stack keltec 9mm's 9don't remember the model). they should have any problems worked out of them by then.
I might get a 9MM handgun of some flavor and the only other guns I want are long guns, an M-1 (not the carbine model), but one like I carried in boot camp, sans the lead filled barrel, and MAYBE some sort of .50BMG (like a Barrett M-82) I could use a better 30.06, but if I get the M-1, that'll satisfy that need.
I am on a tight budget, (wife and kids) So it's gonna take a lil while,BUT a 1911(springfield) and a lever action 44 mag(Puma) is on my wish list.we'll see??
I want a Walther, HK, XD,and a BHP. I go to the gun show with them on my mind and a dang revolver will jump in my hand every time. I can't let it go and will go home with it. Back home I'll start dreaming about them pistols again.
I have a simple plan for purchasing my "next" firearms. I walk into my favorite gun store. Then out of the blue a gun pops up at me and says HEY! BUY ME! After that I fill out my forms and go on about buying my new firearm.
Two that I would like to add to my collection this year; a Colt Amrecian Eagle, and a Colt frontier Scout 2nd series.
i have several guns on the wish list. in no order what so ever:
Taurus ultra-lite, protector M851
SW 1911 DK
Sig P220 Carry Elite Stainless
SW Model 327 M&P R8
these would complete the collection :mrgreen:
I can relate. I'm afflicted with the same curse. There's no cure for sixgun fever.

I've already taken care of my need for a .30-06 rifle. Next rifles I want:
AR10 or M1A
.44 Magnum Win '92 or Marlin '94
HK P30 (looks like a long wait on that one) or HK USP40c
Still waiting on Ruger to bring out the Super Blackhawk Hunter in .480Ruger
Looking for a .357mag lever-action that is priced reasonably
finishing my .36 Kentucky long rifle for squirrel season
Pretty much a waiting game right now. If the gun makers would just make it....I would buy it now (with the exception of the sig and usp40c).
Next pistol (maybe) ................. EAA Witness Wonder Finish full size 10 mm! Gotta' have that POWER....:prayer:
Colt O1070XSE/New 1911 stainless, ambi front cocking serrations-NICE.
Glock 20 or something else in 10MM. And last but not at all least, probably my all time favorite a Colt Python 357. I can almost feel it in my hand.
Hey Thor, I have your M1 Garand in my gun safe. MFG April 1945 real Springfield Armory and can still send accurate 30.06 fire down range.
RRA AR 15 in the style of M4 (I'll order next Monday hopefully)
A couple of lever guns in pistol calibers (yet to be determined)
Super Redhawk in .44 magnumn
Blackhawk in Colt .45
have my Remington 700 sent off for re-barrel and complete rebuild.
AR 30 In .338 Lapua
Another Kimber in Stainless
And maybe another .45, but blued
Maybe a varmit/bolt gun in .223
any collectable's that I can get my hands on
,but my next major investment is reloading equip
But for now I'll have to be content breaking the new AR10/T in.
Just about any reasonably priced handgun as long as it has a pony on the side. Thor--I recently bought an M1 from CMP, and that is one great rifle. Shooting the Greek ammo in it without a glitch.
My wish list and it changes quite offend.
1. A Para with the LDA trigger system. If I can get this one I would be very happy. Black Watch Companion
Then I would like to get the Springfield EMP 9mm. This I'm hoping will be a handgun that my wife likes to shoot.
Next I want a match M1A. Must have a wood stock.
I'm hoping that I can get these 3 this year.
other guns I'm thinking about is the Witness Polymer 45 acp. I held one a few weeks back and it had a dull SS looking finish on it. I should of asked to shoot it.
I want 3 more revolvers in 45acp, 44 mag and 454. I think I will go with Ruger for the 44 and 454 but can't think of a company that makes a 45acp.
454 with the Low-Glare Stainless.
I really only have two on the list, for now. Leaning towards a Ruger P series 9mm, and something in a compact format preferably an auto. Maybe a Taurus for the compact, not sure though. Just can't make up my mind.
spacedoggy, S&W lists 2 45acp revolvers. Models 325, and 625. At around a m.s.r.p. of $900- $1100 they're out of my price range.
Taurus lists a 45 acp in their "Tracker" series. The web site was not working when I checked, so I didn't get a price.
Thanks drummin I already knew that but I won't own any S&W and this is why

It shot great out of the box, I find it light weight, to me I love the eye appeal, and I like the decocker. I take a gun out of my safe almost every night just to look at and fondel while I watch the boob tube with the wife. I pull this one the most.

38 SPL J-frame or similar
