I'm looking for a deal on a three or four inch M657, or a short-barreled nickel M57.

I might pick up another shotgun too. A Winchester 97 would be nice.

December 28, 2004, 11:51 PM
CZ P-01
Taurus Tracker 627

And if I can find the resources, a nice Kel Tec SU-16.

Taurus 66
December 29, 2004, 12:01 AM
Let's just make this guns overall, since I have quite a few now and am looking for only a few more to come full circle.

Right now I have (in order of purchase) a Henry lever action 22 LR, Colt HBAR 223, Remington 870, Remington 597 22 mag, Taurus 66 357 mag, and Liberty II 12 gauge. Next is some sort of pocket pistol (still searching). Eventually I want tupperware in a pistol (Glock or Sig). After that I do not know what I want until the time gets closer.

December 29, 2004, 12:09 AM
I wasnted an AR but I couldn't wait until 2005. Bought a Bushy tonight. :D

December 29, 2004, 01:05 AM
Kahr P45
HK P2000

First purchase is gonna be a HK USP Expert being custom built from the frame up by Bruce Gray. I'd tell you the price but you'd cry. :what:

December 29, 2004, 01:24 AM
Berretta Neos
SA champion Loaded or STI Ranger
A 9mm- haven't decided which one

December 29, 2004, 01:40 AM
For 2005.

A SA 1911A1 that I can customize.

Honestly, I think that I've come to the end of my gun buying. I need to look at the few that I have and give them updates.

But you have to realize, I have fewer then Tam but more then AM (sorry AM, your a friend and I had to make at point). I have a C&R and will most likely get are few more rifles (did I mention, I don't like rifles and I have more then I really want, including an entire set of SKS rifles :( ).

For my list for next year:

Ammo, and more ammo, and then some ammo to keep the original ammo happy.

FM Hi-power, may or may not get chromed and get a pair of pimp grips (ivory or pearl) as well as the gold trigger and the gold hammer. I believe that every man should have a pimp gun.

Night sights for the HK. She/It should have a pair.

A .32 cylinder for the Nagant. I've yet to fire that pistol :(.

A real safe. Not a homark or a sentrey but a real safe. With what I have, maybe two real safes, depends on how well I can pack things.

HK USP .45 12 round mags, if my gun store can get them.


December 29, 2004, 06:36 AM
Just to round out the (small) collection:
A pump shotgun
Something black and .308
And if I win the lottery, a FN 5.7.
Oh, and ammoammoammoammoammoammoammoammo

December 29, 2004, 06:54 AM
1. Lots of ammo....then more ammo
2. DSA Fal or JLD PTR91
3. HK USP.45

If the opportunity presents itself:

1. Snubby hammerless revolver
2. Mosin Nagant rifle
3. A rack grade CMP Garand to keep my SA Garand company

December 29, 2004, 07:54 AM
I'm undecided...

either a DSA Para congo....or 5 Garands from CMP.

December 29, 2004, 08:21 AM
A decent Enfield rifle to replace the unsafe POS I bought recently.

Matt G
December 29, 2004, 08:24 AM
Don't get me started. I'm actually in a pretty good place with regards to the "gotta have its". This is a really good thing, as I'm just not currently able to finance squat for the gun cabinent.

December 29, 2004, 08:42 AM
1. EBR with as many evil features as possible. (16" threaded barrel, flash hider, accessory rail with forward grip, collapsible stock, bayonet lug, Beta-C mag . . . )

2. Lightweight J-frame .357 or .38 +P

December 29, 2004, 09:15 AM
Sig Mosquito and a .22lr levergun - not sure which one.

December 29, 2004, 09:15 AM
AR in 6.8spc :D

December 29, 2004, 09:59 AM
Listed in order desired:

1938 Tula PEM Sniper

1916 Tula "Peter the Great" M91 (Have a line on one)

1916 Izhevsk M91

1916 M95 Nagant revolver (No I was not born in 1916, nor am I that much into WWI. One of my first Mosins was a 1916 Sestroryetsk, which is the harder of the three Russian arsenals to find. And I have a 1916 BSA No. 1 MkIII SMLE.)
AMD-65 (Currently in process)


K98k or M48

Some sort of 9mm pistol, to go with my Kel-Tec (Not S&W, even though that's what the grip frame is.) Probably an XD.

.50 BMG something!

AK-74 build

Romak-3 build

.223 Handi-Rifle

Kel-Tec SU-16

More Mosins! :D

Of course, what I'll end up with is:

about 6 or seven more M38's and M44's, and a Makarov. :rolleyes:

December 29, 2004, 10:32 AM
Not in any particular order:

Marlin 45/70 Guide Gun
2nd S&W 649
2nd HK USP Compact .45


Just wishful thinking. Susan's medical bills have us in debt up to our eyebrows, so none of it is likely to happen (and I feel a little guilty wanting what's on that list, but. . .).


December 29, 2004, 11:11 AM
Will be picking up an FN Five-seveN in the next couple weeks.

Then I am going to start scouring the world for Lee-Enfields with my freshly minted C&R license (hopefully I'll have it by the end of January).


December 29, 2004, 11:20 AM
First thing I need to get, so we can start practicing, is a matched set of blackpowder rifles. The wife wants to try black powder for elk this year, so we have to get the guns if she wants to prove to me shes ready.

After that, I have a pretty huge hole in my collection. Since trading away my SP-101 I have NO .357 revolver. I want to fix this soon.

I would like to get an EBR, but as long as the political climate stays like it is, that keeps moving down the list of priorities. It would help if my Marlin lever-action .357 wasn't so much fun and so accurate. Out to about 100 yards, I'm not sure there is anything I can do with my Marlin that I could actually do better with an AR.

Other than that, I am really more interested in accesories this year. Maybe making some modifications to my Saiga to make it more of an EBR, new grips for some of my guns. And, I want to start reloading. For Christmas, I had my wife get me The ABC's of Reloading, so I can start learning.


December 29, 2004, 11:21 AM
Guns I want? Here's a quick list:

.300 WSM built by GA Precision with a Nightforce NXS on top

Rock River AR15

A couple of spare SKS's

Mauser 6.5X55

Finish building my 10/22

What will I get? Well, I'm planning on finishing the 10/22. :rolleyes: Who knows what the new year will bring, though? Who knows, maybe a fabulously rich relative :scrutiny: that I've never met will leave me a fortune, or I'll win the Powerball lottery. Unfortunately, my family tree needs water, and I don't buy lottery tickets. But hey, I can hope! :neener:

December 29, 2004, 11:25 AM
Gonna finish my AR (need a barrel and the specialty tools to assemble it). Other than that, I have no concrete plans. I'll probably spend gun money on reloading supplies and accessories for guns I already have.


December 29, 2004, 11:26 AM
'gad, I shouldn't have read this thread: It's given me way too many more ideas for spending $$$ I shouldn't.
NEEDs are NONE; WANTs are MANY. :what:

Already on the list are:

Rem 37 .22 target rifle - in process
S.A. 1911 9mm - in process
Browning Bushmark Target
Sig Trailside
Sig P226ST (in my next lifetime!)
Steyr M9
unsingle barrel for my SKB 885

Time to win the Lotto!!

December 29, 2004, 11:29 AM
Really want to get a 3" GP100. I want a Colt 1991 too.

December 29, 2004, 11:41 AM
Right now my list is fairly short (but it grows without warning)

Beretta Storm .40
870 Express (plan to turkey hunt this year)

December 29, 2004, 11:45 AM

Semi auto Saiga 12<~~~cant use a pump very well...GRRRRRRR!

Semi auto Saiga in 223 or 308 or 7.62/39...havent decided which yet...prolly 2 of the three

Mags and ammo and shells for above..LOTS of mags, ammo and shells! :)


Springy XD-9C to keep the one I got company

4 more Saiga 12's because they are gonna be declared DD when someone (in US) designs a drum for it :cuss:

Glock 20

KT SU-16

December 29, 2004, 11:46 AM
1st half of the yearwill be
getting my 8mm Mauser out of lay-a-way
then a 22lr
30-06 bolt
the last part of the year will be an ar15 or a mini 14 don't know witch yet.

December 29, 2004, 01:50 PM
I want one of these G36Ks that have been gussied up with XM8 parts.. :evil:


December 29, 2004, 02:09 PM
Para P-16ltd for conversion to 10mm.


December 29, 2004, 02:19 PM
A S&W M27 in good+ condition, for a decent price. I'd probably take a nickeled version if possible, but blued is good too.

A good shotgun. I'm thinking Stevens 311 in 12 gauge(with double triggers and 3 inch chambers, the way God intended it) or an 870 in the same.

A Springfield 1911 Milspec.

A lot of ammo.

December 29, 2004, 02:19 PM
Oh, man. What I want... pretty much everything. :devil:

A 12 guage of some sort,
my SW1911 back from my Dad,
A shooter Garand, before they all go away,
Maybe a K98 mauser, before they all go away,
a blackpowder rifle,
an EBR of the M4gery variety
a wheelgun in .357 or larger,
a tricked out racegun,
another carry piece,
Maybe a hunting rifle, a Ruger #1 or something,
a CZ, because I've heard such great things about them.
a 9mm autoloader of some sort to start toying with IDPA.

That's about it. For this year. :)


December 29, 2004, 02:22 PM
I'd like a couple Colt revolvers...an' a Sako 75 Finn Lite too while I'm at it!!

December 29, 2004, 02:50 PM
I know I want a S&W Model 41.

Maybe, a AK-47 with all the evil features, maybe.

December 29, 2004, 03:03 PM
WWI era 8mm Mauser rifle, Winchester model 12.

December 29, 2004, 03:07 PM
"What guns do you want to buy?"

All of them!!

The 8mm Mauser is always a good choice. Ammo is about as cheap as can be (spare 22lr) and accuracy is amazing. I've already got two! I would suggest an m48 (short edition).

BTW - 8mm Mausers in anywhere from Good to Very Good condition go for about $80 here in Tucson -- how much are you guys paying?


45 Carry
December 29, 2004, 03:12 PM
S&W Model 617 4", Model 629 Classic 5"
Ruger Mark II or III
Ugly Black Gun in .308

W Turner
December 29, 2004, 04:11 PM
- that neat little 16" BBL. .357 levergun I found yesterday that was made by Interarms

- the Iver Johnson pump action .22LR I found yesterday..

- Glock 17

- Kel-tec sub2K in 9mm to use the Glock mags

- quality bolt gun in .308.....or .30-06,.....or .270,.........or .243......despite the fact that I never seem to find the time to take up deer hunting.... :banghead:

- Lightweight Commander or SW Scandium Commander

- SA revolver

- .22LR revolver

- Garand or M1a

- Marlin 336- yeah, I know, I know

CRAP........now I'm just depressed


December 29, 2004, 04:18 PM
I know. I might as well wish on the moon for that one. Failing that. I want a .45 Colt N-frame.

December 29, 2004, 04:32 PM
1. M4gery upper for the lower I just built
2. Glock 30
3. 20in A2 AR-15
4. Sig P226ST in 357 Sig
5. AMMO!

December 29, 2004, 04:41 PM
I'm done buying guns.

No really. I am. I've got all the guns I want and that I need. I'd rather spend my $ on ammo.

Black Snowman
December 29, 2004, 04:46 PM
At least one of all of them, but it's a little out of my budget. I'll be happy if I manage to get my Oly Arms PCR-8 Mag complete by 2006. Financially, I shouldn't buy more than that. But I will. Probably a CZ/Tanfolgio/Jehrico 45 ACP and the CZ SP-01 if it's out this year. Maybe a couple more AR projects. Maybe another 10mm. A CZ 75B SA in .40 if I find a deal.

December 29, 2004, 05:09 PM
For the first time in a long time, there is no "got to have" gun on my wish list. Which is just as well, because I'm more focused on buying a 2005 Dodge SRT4 or Ford Mustang GT in a few months. Also I need a new couch and recliner.


lee n. field
December 29, 2004, 05:30 PM
Right now I'm thinking, SP-101 (once I've found a new home for the Taurus 66) and tart up my Mini-14 a bit (easier to work with what I have than stretch for a new EBR). I think of these as refining the collection.

A class if I can swing it.

December 29, 2004, 06:41 PM
1. EAA/Tanfoglio Witness .45 Compact/Compensated
2. Kel-Tec p3-AT
3. Semi-Auto 12 guage
4. Maybe something Class 3 - Ha, can't afford that one yet
5. Magnum wheelgun (357 or 44...) (I don't have any revolvers yet)
6. 50 cal muzzleloader
7. 308 Saiga

I'd also like some scopes for my Mausers and M44... and some more ATI stocks... wait, what? Santa already came and went?! Damn!


December 29, 2004, 06:42 PM
Assuming I win the lottery:

--Ruger Frontier in 7x57 with iron sights for backup
--Converted X-frame to 460 S&W

Assuming I don't:
--Another S&W model 13, in 3" OR a Speed Six
--Some really nice grips and some custom work for my existing Model 13
--A Marlin 1894 compact in .357.
--A new Mossberg 500 slugster so my old warhorse can retire and spend the next salmon season in someone's closet.

December 29, 2004, 06:46 PM
My list is pretty short right now, but stand back because I don't know how big this thing'll get!


December 29, 2004, 06:56 PM
colt pythons, colt pythons, colt pythons, colt pythons , and maybe a colt diamondback

sigma 40ve
December 29, 2004, 06:57 PM
Every one that I come to want or desire . All without raising the ire of my wife. I think I did good this year with picking up a few firearms before she finally began to raise her eyebrows.

December 31, 2004, 04:12 AM
Finnish M-39 various types
Enfields various types
SKS various types

December 31, 2004, 05:36 AM
How about a High Point 9mm? :eek:

December 31, 2004, 05:55 AM
I'd like a Colt Delta Elite & a 9mm BHP. Maybe a new lever gun in .357. That's about it.

:D :D

December 31, 2004, 07:13 AM
CMP Garand
AK47 clone
Yugo SKS
An AR15 with all the evil features :D

Billy Sparks
December 31, 2004, 07:56 AM
I thought I had already chimed in on this thread. Oh well, seeing as how I have the dreaded 1911 disease I want more 1911's Colts please.....

Chris Rhines
December 31, 2004, 08:02 AM
A Glock 23.
Another AR carbine, probably an 18" barrel with rifle gas system.
A Remington 700 AICS with a USO telescope.

- Chris

December 31, 2004, 10:19 AM
1. LRB M14SA - Either one put together by a competent M14-smith ($$$), or one of LRB's own complete builds ($$$). LRB is said to manufacture the best USGI-spec (w/o full auto) receivers since the rifles were in production for the US DoD in the early and mid-60s. Some say they are of even better quality than those produced by most of the original USGI M14 manufacturers! :cool:

2. Pre-'94 Bushy Lower - I live in an unfree state. :fire: I already have a Bushy carbine (sans evil features), I would like to be able to build up an 20" A4-gery with sinister bayonet lug and flash suppressor.

December 31, 2004, 02:50 PM

December 31, 2004, 06:38 PM
Almost Certainly:
Beretta Storm in .40

nice 12ga semi, specifically a Winchester Super X2 3".
another upper for the AR, (or even a complete rifle, I just know I'd get sick of having to always swap the uppers around)
either CZ 85 Compact in .40 or the P-04 when it comes out.

Would like:
a nice bolt action 'deer/hunting' rifle, like a Rem 700 in 300 Win Mag or 7mm Mag

Brian Williams
December 31, 2004, 07:23 PM
Lightweight AR???
S&W 58
Nef in 357 and cut the barrel to 16 and put a youth stock on it.

If some gunsmithing works for me I might get rid of a few I do not shoot.
S&W 1956 pre 10 4 screw
S&W 1950 K38 6"
Maybe my chopped and channeled, moonclipped 586 1/2 lug
Maybe my 940 if my lite 9mm reloads work in my franken942.

Gunsmithing to do
940 cylinder for my 642 and put the original 940 cylinder back in my 940.
ream 1 charge hole in my 35-1 to 22 mag.
get my Heavyduty converted to 45 colt then I do not need the 58

December 31, 2004, 07:41 PM
There are several I've had on my list for a while. They are really not "special", but I'd like to see them in the house.
I'd like a mod. 29 ,.44 mag, a mod 19, and a mod 25 .45 colt. I'd also like a M1A 'cause I need a 308 .I'll be looking this year...maybe I'll run up on "the deal" and come home with a real prize! :D

December 31, 2004, 07:47 PM
Happy New Year y'all:

1. Ruger New Vaquero blue 4 5/8 45LC :D
2. Lewis Machine and Tool (LMT) M4 :evil:
3. H&K USP Compact 45 stainless :D
4. Civilian version of the Army's new semi-auto 7.62 sniper rifle :cool:
5. Etc., etc., etc..

December 31, 2004, 07:57 PM
Wow, I have several on my list and I can get more fevers at any time.

.41 mag model 57 6"
.44 mag model 29 6.5 inch
.357 mag model 19 4"
.38 special model 10 4"
H&R .32 long
Hi standard centenal .22 mag 4"
beretta 92 9mm
454 casull revolver, not sure what brand yet
500 s&w revolver
pre-model 29 6.5 inch

Oh yeah, that 50 bmg revolver over in the general handguns section, maybe the .600 nitro too.

December 31, 2004, 08:49 PM
Not in any particular order:

Browning Buckmark Standard
Savage or Chuck Daly bolt gun in 7mm-08
Winchester 1300 or FN Police SG
Marlin 1895 .45-70 tweeked w/ WWG parts
Glock 27
Long term goal is a .338-06 AI or .35 Whelen AI built on a Chuck Daly Mauser action.

This list dosen't include purchases made once my C&R arrives. :D

December 31, 2004, 09:37 PM
It would be alot easier to list those that I don't want to buy!!!

Brian Williams
December 31, 2004, 10:29 PM
I forgot that I would like to build a Charles Daly Mini-Mauser in 25-222mag.

December 31, 2004, 10:36 PM
nice o/u shotgun

January 1, 2005, 12:16 AM
Thanks to THR member NJ3, my first gun of 2005 is waiting at the dealer for me now - it actually arrived yesterday, but as usual, the "instant" background check isn't, and I have to wait until I'm approved... :fire:


January 1, 2005, 12:35 AM
Looking for a Tarus 357 at the Sikeston new gun store, Sportsman Rod & Gun, at the Feeders building

January 1, 2005, 03:27 AM
You never know what deals you'll run into and can't walk away from but on my list right now is to just round out my USP collection w/ a USPc 45 :cool:

January 1, 2005, 06:59 AM
I'm going to try and restrain myself from getting any new guns this year. What i'm gonna do is swap (not an even swap. I'll pay $$$)) my Kahr K9 for a Para 14-40 W/ 14 rounders and my Charter Arms, Off Duty for a Smith M-36, blued.

I have bought at least 1 gun a month since Oct, 03. I'm addicted. Where's the 10 step program at?

Oh, my Para C6-45 will be at my dealer on Thur or Fri. I'm mailing the check on Mon. Got it off of Gunbrokers. It's the coolest little thang...............

January 1, 2005, 07:09 AM
Short list is 870, Delta Elite, 4" Python, ALS 50 BMG upper, and maybe a Glock 29.

Route 66
January 1, 2005, 07:36 AM
Either a Colt Defender or Kimber Ultra Carry, then either a SA sub-compact XD or a CZ P01 or a Glock 26. Too many choices and not enough time! :(

Zach S
January 1, 2005, 08:54 AM
5" Kimber Series I (a friend is selling his), 9mm AR, AK variant, P14-45, possibly another glock. I'd like a BAR-10 as well, but dont know if I can afford it - a lot of my money will likely be put into my 80 Fairmont since my 83 is slowly falling apart.

I'm also planning on .22 conversions for my GM, OM, and AR15.

January 1, 2005, 10:04 AM
I'm toying with the idea of an Ar-15 and maybe a M686 .357...


Have a great new year,


January 1, 2005, 03:51 PM
It's always a long list: I'd like to buy a Sig this year. A couple of good lever action rifles, and maybe a few more revolvers. First I've got to get my type M to Ernest Langdon, customize my CX Storm, and refinish and get a trigger job for my Colt Detective Special -- last gun purchase of 2004 -- literally. :D

January 1, 2005, 08:29 PM
My 2005 plans include
NNA Guardian 380
Another 1911

January 1, 2005, 10:29 PM
Complete my AR build...almost done!

I still feel un-American not owning some sort of 1911, so thats high on the list of course.

I would love to have a Springfield Sub-Compact XD9

4v50 Gary
January 2, 2005, 01:25 AM
Absolutely none. I said that last year and must have bought quite a few that strayed across my path. :( :p

January 2, 2005, 09:35 AM
I'm considering a vintage back-to-basics double action revolver, preferably S&W, in either .357 Mag or .38 Spl.

January 2, 2005, 05:56 PM
Just bought a S&W 1006 and a Colt Combat Commander XSE :D

January 2, 2005, 06:38 PM
I'm gonna have to buy/build an AR15. I probably can't afford it. Sure don't need it. But I'm always being picked on because I'm the only guy on the block that doesn't have an evil black rifle. :o

I'll also need to move closer to work (and the range) so I have more down time for playing with said AR.

January 2, 2005, 09:32 PM
My list goes like this.

S&W 1076
Mauser M2
AK type rifle.

plenty of ammo for ALL guns.

January 2, 2005, 09:47 PM
I think this year I want to get some reloading equipment, and possibly start having a few of my guns re-finished.

Maybe a Marlin lever action in 41 mag, also.

January 2, 2005, 10:18 PM
After my last 2 purchases (P99 + S&W 500) I think im done for awhile. At some point I would like to pickup a S&W 657 .41mag, but I am in no hurry to do so.

January 2, 2005, 10:27 PM
I plan on buying an M1 Garand from CMP, a Ruger 10/22, a SIG P220 and either a SIG P225 or P239. Should be a fun year!

January 2, 2005, 11:51 PM
Belgian Hi Power
Russian capture Nazi 98K
AK of some sort...probably a Romanian

January 3, 2005, 08:19 AM
Well I want alot of guns, but those I can realistically look to save up for kinda shorten the list a 'lil.

Lets see,

-high-end or custom AK
-an AR
-FN FiveseveN
-maybe a shotgun of some sort, Remington 870 marine magnum would be nice
-Remington 700 PSS, along with scope & bipod

Probably won't end up getting any of these, but maybe just maybe a custom ak will find itself in my possession.

Don't have to worry about ammo anymore! Got me a Dillon 550B press, and all the once fired brass(.45acp) I can pick up at the outdoor range for free!!!!!!!!!! As far as new guns for 2005: (1) Colt Defender .45acp
(2) Colt SAA .45colt 4 3/4"bbl
(3) Kel Tec p3at .380
(4) Browning Buckmark 5.5 field .22lr
That should hold me for a while!

I already HAVE guns, I don't NEED any more guns, or so I am told from time to time. What I don't have is an Apache helicopter. Payback is hell! :evil:

For 2005, provided my back gets better, I plan to spend most of my cash on ammo and training.

However, there are four guns I plan to pick up in 2005.

A Marlin 1894 in .357
An older Wingmaster or Ithaca 37
A Springfield GI for a project
A S&W K frame .38 (either M10, M15, M13, or M19)

I bought the Springfield GI yesterday so I'm already on the right track... :D

All of them, of course. :evil:

Realisticly, seeing as how I just got my .357 revolver, I'm looking to branch out into either a 1911, pump shotgun, black powder(flintlock, percussion cap, etc...), falling block, double barrel, drilling...

My collection goal: One of each action, in firing condition. I want it to take weeks to teach somebody how to work them all. I have so far: single shot shotgun, semi-auto shotgun, 2 military semis, lever-action, semi-auto .22 rifle, semi-auto pistols(2), revolvers(2), bolt action. :neener:

I've noticed that I like .30 caliber rifles, and CZ pistols. :cool:

Smith and Wesson Model 13 with 3" heavy barrel.

Some sort've .22 auto for target work.

Some sort've AR style rifle, probably a Bushmaster.
