This is just for those of us that are comfortable with this question so those that do not like to talk about what they have feel free to ignore this thread. What was your last firearm purchase and what will be your next? Handgun, rifle, or both. Maybe even why? I like seeing how the firearms tastes of different members vary from each other and from my own personal tastes.

Last- Taurus PT92 in stainless, because I did not own a 9mm
Next- Hopefully a Ruger .454casull Alaskan, because I like things that make big booms and I want to take it backpacking.

Last- .30-.30 Marlin 336XLR in stainless, because it is freakin' sweet.
Next- .30-.06 Ruger M77 Sporter in stainless, because I need something a little smaller than my .45/70 and my .30/.30 in case I ever find myself needing to hunt to feed myself.

In Nov I bought a .380 Sphinx, from the close by gun store, because I liked the looks of it.
I hate it when I stop in there for a coffee and to shoot the bull and the owner says, "Have I got something to show you.":D

Then I bought a FN 5.7 at a gun show because I think it might be interesting.

Then I bought the new Kel Tec PLR-16 at the gun show. I knew this would be interesting.

I think I'll try the new Skyy when I find one and the new Kel Tec 9mm.

I'm thinking about getting another Kel Tec PLR-16 for a car gun.

And I'm always on the lookout for buys on Makarovs (got 14 now :) ).

March 3, 2006, 08:07 PM
Hmmmm.... Not sure what my last purchase was. A S&W 638 snub nose I think.

Been gettin' itchy to buy a new gun though lately. Always wanted a Sig P226 to go with my P220 but my CZ75B SA fills that bill and I got enough handguns in every caliber now that buyin' another just becuz' is gettin' a little hard to justify - EVEN to my GUN LOVIN' self. Rifle wise I got the bases covered and I'm not really a rifle guy anyway.

Kinda like to have a compact semi-auto pistol chambered in .40 S&W. Something I can just drop in a pocket. Any suggestions?

March 3, 2006, 08:37 PM
My last two purchases were Wilson Classic pistols. Bought an all stainless last Aug and liked it so much that I bought another in stainless frame/black slide in Jan. GREAT pistols.

Good shooting and be safe.

Don't Tread On Me
March 3, 2006, 08:38 PM
Last: Kel-Tec .380. Works flawlessly. Perfect. :D

Prior to that: Kahr .45. Jam-o-matic. Sold. :(

Next: Springfield XD9 tactical. :)


Last: Nornico SKS (accepts AK mags) - nice rifle. :D

Next: Nothing on the horizon, but perhaps some sort of .308 or .30-06 caliber rifle, either a bolt-action, single-shot NEF, or a semi-auto like a Saiga or Garand.

March 3, 2006, 08:50 PM
I don't know. Ask my heirs.

March 3, 2006, 08:53 PM
I don't know. Ask my heirs.
A perfectly acceptable definition of "last" is "most recent". :)

March 3, 2006, 08:55 PM
last: glock 35
next: if my custom rifle gets done, it will be next. if i get the money up before the rifle is done, my next will likely be a trio of glock 22's.

after the rifle gets done, i'll have one more rifle built, and then i think i'm done, permanently, w/ long guns - no more coming or going.

March 3, 2006, 09:02 PM
Last handgun: Hi-Point 45, lots of fun

Next handgun: If my C&R goes through a nagant revolver, otherwise a Taurus 44 mag w/ 12" barrell and scope. Maybe.

Next Rifle: Romanian AK47 if I can find an outdoor range close enough to use it at otherwise a Hi-Point 45 carbine.

March 3, 2006, 09:06 PM
Last: Taurus PT-145 Millennium Pro .45 (great little gun at a bargain price, IMO)

Future: I really would like to get a Marlin levergun if I can get a bit of spare cash (and your pics aren't a very good deterrent to that PP :D )


March 3, 2006, 09:09 PM
Well, I don't have a last as I'm currently saving up for my first lol

When I get the money together I'm looking at a Ruger Mark II or Mark III to start out with. :)


March 3, 2006, 09:09 PM
i recently bought a savage 10. im buying 3 winchester model 94s next week.

March 3, 2006, 09:11 PM
Last Handgun: Colt 1991A1 XSE
Last rifle: select-fire FNC
Next: Either a Glock 19 for use and abuse or the FN FS2000, FN SCAR, SIG556, or Steyr AUG A3 when they come out.

March 3, 2006, 09:14 PM
Future: I really would like to get a Marlin levergun if I can get a bit of spare cash (and your pics aren't a very good deterrent to that PP )
Hey, I do what I can. :D
I really like the 2 Marlins I have (the .30-.30 336XLR and the .45/70 1895GS). I would recommend you get one. I am broke because of them myself but for once I have no buyers remorse at all. They make me feel like a cowboy. :D

March 3, 2006, 09:36 PM
My first handgun purchase was a few weeks ago with a P89 and next I am thinking about an SP101 so the wife can shoot her favorite round with the same gun I use with a new favorite round of mine.




March 3, 2006, 09:47 PM
My last purchase was a Thompson Center Classic .22 semiautomatic. My next purchase hopefully will be either a Browning Buckmark, a Ruger MKII or III, or a Lee Enfield so that I can get one of the Enfields sporterized in 7.62x39. I also STILL have to send my Glock off to get Robarized. And my Mosin Nagant M38 Scout project is almost finished, except that the stock is locked up in the post office till Monday. Then I want a Ruger Alaskan, for CCW:D By the time those guns are purchased I will have been transferred out of California so it will be time to start working on the AR15 collection. Of course I still have to work on accumulating an even larger pile of ammo than I already have. And I need a Savage or Ruger left handed bolt action in 30-06. Sig 229DAK to practice with since it is my duty weapon. I just realized I need to save a lot more money:eek:

March 3, 2006, 09:50 PM
Kifaru: Switch barrel in .300 WSM.

March 3, 2006, 09:53 PM
Last -- Swede M38
Next -- White Oak Armament DCM AR15

Last -- Star BM
Next -- Kimber Target Match

Last -- Stoeger Coach
Next -- Beretta 686 Silver Pigeon

When I turned 40 last year, I told my wife I thought it made sense to have as many guns in my collection as years I am old. Now that I've surpassed that number it is feeling like I'm in full feldged addictiton mode. Maybe 1.5X my age is a better target.

...and I need to live to be 200

March 3, 2006, 09:55 PM
Last: Walther P22--lots of fun
Next: S&W 360 PD, I need a revolver of some sort

Last: I've never actually bought a rifle, they've been inherited
Next: I really want a bolt action precision rifle in .308...just not sure which one

...all I have to do now is save the $$...


March 3, 2006, 09:57 PM
On my To-Buy List

Para Ordanance 14-45 1911 LDA (This one (http://www.paraord.com/product/product.html?id=49))

Fulton M1A EBR

FN FS2000 (when they are avlable in Black)

March 3, 2006, 10:06 PM
Last purchase: For Valentines Day I bought my wife a new-to-me, Browning lever action .22. She loves it. It was a hoot to watch my daughters jaw drop as she watched her mother shoot!

Next purchase: Been looking for a 1911 in 9mm, that I can justify (plinker status).

March 3, 2006, 10:10 PM
Last Handgun: Para Ordnance TAC-S -- Commander size with LDA.
Next Handgun: Not really sure, nothing in the works. If the TAC-S works out could be another LDA, but the jury is still out on that. Other than that plenty on the list but near future funds are going towards additional needs for my next rifle.

Last Rifle: This one is tough without digging out receipts as I bought several in Q4 2005. I think it was a Yugo M24/47 8MM.
Next Rifle: I guess this counts as "next", it is paid for but not in my possesion yet. RRA 16" Midlength Flat Top with chrome lined barrel and collapsable stock.

March 3, 2006, 10:13 PM
:D I bought a Glock 19 about 3 weeks ago.Getting a Ruger GP100 in a month or 2.

March 3, 2006, 11:09 PM
Next up for me will be one of the major pre-20th Century American martial arms, either a Springfield Trapdoor or a Krag. After that a Springfield 1903 and/or a U.S. Model 1917 Enfield. I don't care much for Garands, and their current price means I probably won't ever have one.

Last thing I buy will be some authentic, original Civil War era arms including an 1860 Army revolver and a Model 1860 Springfield musket. I already have a repro of the musket, but it will be nice to have an original with history.

March 3, 2006, 11:11 PM

Last: Para LDA CCO .45ACP
Next: Colt Series 70 Combat Commander in 9mm


Last: CZ 527 American Bolt-Action in .223 (good varmint gun!)
Next: Something in 30-06 for the 100th year mark of this cartridge.

March 3, 2006, 11:39 PM
Last -Winchester 94 Trapper in 44magnum
Next - FN PS-90 lets hope:rolleyes:

March 4, 2006, 03:24 AM
playboy, check this out, at sunday bowling I got 6 raffle tickets for 5$ from the area gun club. Around 6 weeks later a guy calls me on the phone to tell me that I won a 11-87 . Cool , but i have 8 shotguns didn't need another , so I traded it even up for a spring 1911 defender stainless compact. Did I tell u that it cost me 5$ ..... :eek: :neener:

March 4, 2006, 04:16 AM
My last gun purchases:
4" Smith and Wesson .500, a Glock 29 10mm, and a Springfiled 1911 Loaded model. (All purchased the same week)

Next gun purchase:
Required components to complete by FN FAL build.

March 4, 2006, 07:06 AM
I will play along.

The last handgun I purchased was a sub-compact Springfield XD in .40 S&W. I got it because I wanted a CCW gun in .40 S&W. Until a decent, non-1911 type, 10mm makes it to the market I have no plans to purchase another handgun in the foreseeable future.

The last rifle I bought was a Russian captured K98 built by Erma in the late 1930s. All of the markings are in tact. I bought it for historic reasons. I am leaning towards a CZ 550 in .375 H&H as my next rifle purchase. I would like to have a rifle chambered in one of the old safari type cartridges.

March 4, 2006, 07:17 AM
I had a small gun buying fit last month. A Springfield XD-9, a Ruger Mk II Standard, and a Ruger 10/22 "Wally World" special rifle.

My next? I'm not sure. My wife wants a shotgun, probably a 20 ga, and I want a Hi-Point 45. One of those probably.

March 4, 2006, 08:29 AM
Last handgun: Springfield XD45 (my carry gun)
Last rifle: Ruger 10/22 (that was a while ago)

Next handgun: ??? Not looking right now, maybe a short-barreled S&W M19 for summer IWB carry, maybe a .22LR semi-auto.
Next rifle: SKS, depending on the price and supply of its ammo at the local shop.


March 4, 2006, 08:37 AM
Last purchases:
Feb '06 - Sig P220
Jan '06 - Sig GSR Revolution 1911
Dec '05 - (2) Taurus PT111 (one was a gift)
Nov '05 - M4 assembled from parts
Oct '05 - Bushy AR15 pistol
Sep '05 - Bushy M4
Aug '05 - Glock 19
Jul '05 - Glock 21

Next purchase:
I hope I can hold off for at least a few months...but I do have an burning interest in a cowboy action pistol of some sort. Pray for me that I can be strong!!!!

March 4, 2006, 08:43 AM
Would love to buy a Ruger Vaquero in 32H&R Mag.

March 4, 2006, 09:29 AM
The last guns I bought were late last summer. I bought a Uberti colt flattop replica .45 Colt and a stainless Ruger 10/22 Wally World special. I'm getting the itch to buy a lever gun pretty soon. Maybe a Marlin .35 Remington (It turned 100 this year too) or a Savage 99.

March 4, 2006, 09:39 AM
Shotgun: Browning Gold Hunter

Handgun: CZ SP-01

Rifle: Don't plan on buying one any time soon.

March 4, 2006, 10:28 AM
I've recently been seduced by the lure of black powder revolvers. My last purchase was a repro 1851 Colt navy. My next will be one of the Colt Dragoons. Not sure which one yet.

March 4, 2006, 10:34 AM
My last purchase was a Benelli Nova 12 gauge. My next purchase will be a Bushmaster M-4A3 this summer.

March 4, 2006, 11:51 AM
My last two purchases were just last week. No handgun, but I bought an Evolution-9 suppressor (silencer) by AAC for my Glock 17 and a PTR-91. Next purchase will probably be either a Vector V51 (short barreled G3) or a dual-use 9mm suppressor like an SWR Trident.

Vitamin G
March 4, 2006, 12:36 PM
Last Handgun : Glock 20
Last Rifle : Built myself an ultimate 10/22

Next Handgun : Probably a Para doublestack in .40, and convert it to 10mm
Next rifle : Probably a savage or rem 700 in 30-06 for long range plinking.

March 4, 2006, 04:59 PM
S&W 396 Scandium 44 spl 5 shot 2 1/2" bbl revolver (used)
Baikal IZH 43 sxs 12 ga 20" bbl shotgun (used)

All in all, quite a fine day.

Who knows?

March 4, 2006, 05:01 PM
Last was mini-14

Hopefully my next will be a CZ-52 or Makarov.

March 4, 2006, 05:26 PM
xm-15/ M-forgery. I have yet to fire it! Going crazy...

March 4, 2006, 05:33 PM
Scared myself when I realized I can't remember what the last purchase was.
Think it was a Mossberg 500 slug gun, which I overhauled to be the baddest (red dot, folding stock, sidesaddle, black) & most legal (undefined, thus unregulated) gun in NY. Being not in NY any more, anyone want it?

Current (as in down payment made, balance upon arrival) purchase is an on-order Colt M4LE (11.5") which I am terribly excited about. Arrival date is July-Sept, with probably another 2 months NFA paperwork before taking possession. Also have AAC Omni suppressor on order to match.

Next purchase, if the limited supply remains available and finances agree, will be an AAC Phoenix (integral-suppressor Ruger Mk. II). "Hollywood quiet."

I like Georgia.

March 4, 2006, 07:17 PM
G'friend wants a pistol that "will fit in the palm of her hand"..oh yeah, and it has to be pretty. Huh? Looks like a Taurus PP22NG will be next.
PP22NG (http://www.taurususa.com/products/product-details.cfm?model=PP22NG&category=Pistol)

March 4, 2006, 08:39 PM
Last: KelTec P32
Next: Probably a Makarov

March 4, 2006, 08:50 PM
Last: Springfield Armory PX9707L. Semi-Loaded HiCap 1911 in 45ACP (of course!)
Next: A revolver in .357/38. Leaning towards S&W model 19. Mrs Thumper wants something simple.

Last: Yugo SKS 59/66, bought a local show for $118. Shoots and looks good.
On the way: CMP M1 Garand. Already paid, just waiting on shipping.
Next: Thinking of an Enfield or a 1903

Last: Mossberg 500. Does everything and priced right.
Next: A SxS, possibly in 16ga

Support Items:
Last: Lee Pro 1000 (Given to me by Skyder, Thanks Stew!)
Next: Dillon 550 or 650, as finances allow.

March 5, 2006, 01:30 AM
Today I bought a Mosin M-44 to add to the collection and a Taurus 4410 revolver. Can't wait to go to the range tomorrowand see how the .410 000 shells feel coming out of the 3 and 1/2" barrel...:what:

Next purchase will be a Rem 700 in .308

Turkey Creek
March 5, 2006, 09:29 AM
Last purchase- 1898 Krag
Next buy- Martini Henry preferably 1870's dated

I've reached an age where I like firearms that are older than myself and it's getting increasingly more difficult to find them :D

March 5, 2006, 10:50 AM
My last was a mossberg 500A riot 12
gauge.It cost 145 bucks OTD at a
local shop,it's at lease 90%.

I've got no ideal what my next one
will be.

March 5, 2006, 11:40 AM
Last- SIG P210-5 (Bought it when the news is will be discontinued came out.)
Next- One of the following:
RIA 1911 (2nd one. Almost bought one yesterday at a gun show but need to slow my spending.)
CZ75 SP-01 (Non-Tactical. Have not seen one yet in NE OH.)
Taurus 24/7 9mm
Taurus 24/7 .45 ACP (Held one yesterday and was surprised by the very comfortable gripsize - much less girth than regular hi-cap wide bodied .45ACP pistols.)
Springfield XD9 Tactical
Springfield XD45ACP Service
Springfield XD45ACP Tactical
[Actually have a long list but these are at the top.]

Last- JLD PTR-91 (Picked it up this past Friday evening.)
Next- One of the following:
DSA FAL Para Congo (Ordered 09/05, was told by dealer that it will be shipping Monday, tomorrow, Shop closes 7:00 M-F, easy to get to before closing.)
Vector RPD (Ordered 10/05, was told by (different) dealer that it shipped last Tuesday. Expected it to come in by Friday but it didn't. Should come in this Monday or Tuesday but the shop closes at 5:00 M-Th, 7:00 F. Won't be able to get there until Friday.)
It'll be a toss-up.

March 5, 2006, 12:56 PM
I've reached an age where I like firearms that are older than myself and it's getting increasingly more difficult to find them
Few more years and you will have to switch to collection slings and spears. :D

March 5, 2006, 01:06 PM
This year I've bought a lot the last was a Mini-14 and I was trying hard at the same auction to buy a Colt revolver but common sense kept getting the better of me. They all went for pretty much retail and I'm to cheap to pay retail for a used gun. Next up is a Browning Hi Power and an AR from Stag Arms.

March 5, 2006, 01:10 PM
Last: Ruger MarkIII Hunter .22
Next: 1911.45 (for Bullseye?)

March 5, 2006, 07:38 PM
For Christmas I bought myself a .460 S&W.

Yesterday, I got 2 10/22's. I'm going to replace trigger/sear/hammer/etc in both of them, bed both recievers, and put a fluted bull barrel on one of them.

March 5, 2006, 07:56 PM
My last gun purchase was a Colt Government Model in Bright Stainless Steel.

My next gun purchase will be a 22LR revolver. My hope is a Colt Diamondback but I may get a J or K framed Smith and Wesson.

March 5, 2006, 08:22 PM

March 5, 2006, 09:46 PM
Last pistol was a HK USP 45 that I bought about 2 months ago. Stopped by my local gun store today to ask about ordering a Kimber Pro Raptor II, LOVE the look of that gun! Last rifle is a Mitchells Mauser that I found at a pawn shop this past weekend for $200...:what: Premium grade. I almost fell over when the guy told me the price and my hands were almost shaking when I was filling out the 4473. Also picked up a CX4 Storm last week. We have a gun show coming up next weekend in KC, and I will be looking for a Marlin 1894 in 44 Mag.

March 5, 2006, 11:04 PM
Last: Glock 34, yesterday.
Next: Probably an SWR Trident9 suppressor, to use on the Glock and a 9mm SBR AR15 I'm building up.

March 5, 2006, 11:55 PM
My last gun was a glock, my next will be a J frame or an AK-47 (that I will give to my brother for his birthday)

My most recent shooting purchase was a bunch-o wolf in 9mm. I will be buying some new muffs next since my last pair snapped in half :mad:

March 6, 2006, 12:24 AM
Last: Glock 22 (last week)
Next: New Kel Tec PF-9 (hopefully within 2 or 3 months)

Figure I got something for carrying most of the year, and then get something for deeper concealment for whenever that seems necessary.


March 6, 2006, 01:04 AM
The M21 build currently being finished. That should be it for a while.

March 6, 2006, 01:39 AM
Previous Purchases:

Walther P22: First gun, wanted a small caliber, super fun to shoot and my favorite

Steyr M40A1: Wanted a larger caliber, went with a 40. Great ergonomics, liked the looks, and loved the triangular sights. Even has a rail to attach a light or laser.

Taurus Tracker .44magnum with 4" barrel: Liked the looks of the beefier barrel. Wanted a gun with a lot of kick at a decent price. Best "bang" for the buck with this gun @ under $300.

Next Purchase:

Berreta Tomcat, Sigarms P232, or other concealable pistol in the 32acp or 380auto variety.

And some sort of target rifle, have not done any research yet.

March 6, 2006, 02:07 AM
Last: I couldn't tell ya.

My last was a Walther PPK/S .380 in stainless. I needed something for slacks
and a dress shirt.

Next should will be a Springfield Custom Loaded Long Slide 1911-A1.....

next followed by the Long Slide.

Sadly, I haven't made a firearm purchase this year yet.

March 6, 2006, 07:48 AM
Not sure what my next will be. I don't often have alot of money so I have to buy cheap stuff and fix up myself or save up for a long time to get what I want.

I want an M1A or M1 rifle though. That is what I am holding out for.

Brother in Arms

March 6, 2006, 12:10 PM

Next: Kel-Tec PLR16, then Kel-Tec PF9, then Ruger Super Redhawk Alaskan in 454 Casull, then 1911, probably a Smith

Last: DPMS flat-top carbine
Next: Sig 556, then BAR Lightweight Stalker

I'll probably buy all of the above except the Ruger and 1911 this year.

March 7, 2006, 11:27 AM
In a rather stunning display of the variation available in current 1911s mine are:

last purchase - Ed Brown Executive Target - a $2K+ semi-custom full stainless no MIM hand finished jobbie with all the goodies

next purchase - RIA M1911 - a <$300 cast frame and slide GI-based jobbie with, well apart from a lowered and flared ejection port, NONE of the goodies :D

I'm using one of them as a project gun to learn to tweak some simple 1911 stuff myself and play around with. I'm using the other to do some heavy duty range work to improve my currently mediocre target shooting skills and consider some IDPA fun.

I'll leave it to you guys to guess which is which. :evil:

Greeting's All-

With all the guns (and equipment) I have bought and paid for over
the year's, my lovely wifey thinks its best that I stop~!:uhoh: Its true,
I have spent lots of $$$$$$ on firearms over the years; but
as everyone knows, there is always just one more that I got to
get.:eek: And too be honest, right now I can't think of what that

shooting time
March 7, 2006, 12:17 PM
My last purchase was a DPMS ar15 lower that i put a colt upper on
My next purchase would be a M60 machinegun if I can find one at a bargin price also a Kel Tec P3at as soon as I can find one at a deal

March 7, 2006, 12:21 PM
last gun- m1 carbine

next gun- auto ordinance thompson "tommy gun"- military foregrip

March 7, 2006, 12:23 PM
Springfield Armory mil-spec .45.
I've been saving for it specifically, to the exclusion of all else. :eek:
Passed up a couple of deals....

March 7, 2006, 06:21 PM
My wife has informed me that I am not allowed to buy any more guns...

...until we buy her a 1911 first...


March 7, 2006, 06:53 PM
Last - Sig P229 in .40S&W (yesterday)
Next - 1911 something, in .45ACP

Last (many moons ago) - Winchester 1892 SRC (later traded for Colt SAA)
Next - I dunno, have to make room in the gun safe first:) . My wife doesn't count my guns but she does notice when they start filling up closet space.

March 7, 2006, 06:57 PM
Picked up an XD-45 4" last Saturday, my next purchase will probably be a .22 pistol.

Walther P-22 or ruger 22/45 Mark III.

March 7, 2006, 07:01 PM
last FN 5n7 USG
Next FN PS90

March 7, 2006, 09:15 PM
I could get technical here, and break it down by having the purchase processed through a FFL (in my case, a CZ75 SemiCompact), or a private purchase/sale at a gun show (in my case, a CZ75B in gloss black finish, while I was waiting for the fellow from Kramer Gunleather to unpack his wares). As far as my next purchase, I'm considering a Ciener .22LR conversion unit for my FM/FN Hi-Power.

Not only that, but I've got a co-worker and a neighbor strongly thinking (read salivating) for a CZ75B (and as a side-purchase for the wife/SO the CZ75 Kadet in .22LR). I like being a bad influence.

March 7, 2006, 11:11 PM
My last purchase, a Romanian WASR. My next purchase, probably an AR lower.

Another ex-Californian here...

March 8, 2006, 11:56 AM

Pistol---Ruger Bearcat

Rifle---MAS 49/56 7.5mm

Next is a big question---already have an extensive collection----I'm in bill paying mode and just purchased a new car----so next will have to be something I'm willing to trade what I have already for---I haven't traded a gun for 3 years---so I'm pretty happy with what I have now------so it would have to be something pretty nice.

March 8, 2006, 11:09 PM
Last Rifle: Parts for Entry Tactical AR-15 from RRA to finish off my lower

Last & First shotgun: S&W 1000 auto - light, well balanced, fits like a glove, 3 chokes, good finish, nice scroll work, out the door bit under $300 I couldn't resist.

Last Pistol: Ruger P944 .40, sold 2 months after getting, just couldn't group with it?

Next Rifle: Springfield M1 or Remmy 700-PSS

Next Shotgun: either a O/U Trap gun or Remmy 870 HD

Next Pistol: looking for a used .40 or a Colt Commander

I bought two guns almost simutaneously last month, so I will list them both:

Para Hawg 9...

How do you like the Para 9? I've always wanted a 9mm 1911, but have been scared off because of potential feed problems with magazines. 9mm 1911 mags aren't the most common critters, and a bad one might be expensive to replace. Hopefully as 9mm 1911s become more popular, quality aftermarket mags will become more common and less expensive.

March 9, 2006, 09:55 AM
Last rifle: Saiga .308, a year or two ago
Next rifle: Marlin 1894C .357

Last pistol: Springfield loaded 1911

Uberti Arms 1873 CARBINE /w 16" barrel in 45LC

Last firearm I bought is a:

M2 60mm mortar with M5 mount (NFA Registered Destrive Device)
I keep getting funny looks at the range though :neener:

My favorite firearm is my cheesey SWD M11/9
1300rpm rocks :evil:

March 9, 2006, 09:24 PM
Next- One of the following:
DSA FAL Para Congo (Ordered 09/05, was told by dealer that it will be shipping Monday, tomorrow, Shop closes 7:00 M-F, easy to get to before closing.)
Vector RPD (Ordered 10/05, was told by (different) dealer that it shipped last Tuesday. Expected it to come in by Friday but it didn't. Should come in this Monday or Tuesday but the shop closes at 5:00 M-Th, 7:00 F. Won't be able to get there until Friday.)
It'll be a toss-up.

And the winner of this race is...


The Para.

March 16, 2006, 05:28 PM
Unissued Bulgarian Makarov, had to jump through a bunch of hoops to get this one, but Im going in to dros it on Monday.

March 16, 2006, 05:38 PM
I'm buying a .22 rifle. It's been too long since I owned one:)

The deals don't stop coming,my latest is a

March 17, 2006, 12:57 PM
Ordered a Walther PPK/S in 380 and picked up a used Browning (1995) Buck Mark with a 4" bbl. Shot it today and it outshoots the P22 that I traded in (big surprise).

March 17, 2006, 02:35 PM
well I just bought 2 in the span of a few weeks. A G19 and a G21.
I wanted a larger 9mm and I couldn't resist the price on the .45.
Of course I love tupperware

Wilson 17&26
March 17, 2006, 04:44 PM
I just picked up one of these :)
PF-9 will be next.


March 17, 2006, 05:05 PM
last one I bought? Marlin 917VSF

but that was a gift... time to buy something for ME.

There is another pre-war Colt in my future. Maybe a 1908 .380?

March 17, 2006, 05:07 PM
I'll be looking to pick up a Marlin 39 as soon as I get back to the States.

March 17, 2006, 08:54 PM

4. More AR-15's
5. More Mossy 500/590's

8. Suppressors
9. S&W 629

Who knows what will come inbetween these guns, I'll just keep buying things at they strike me

March 17, 2006, 08:57 PM
I guess I should change mine. I had hoped to buy a Ruger .454 Casull Alaskan but it has never come in to the shop. I instead bought the .45Colt Birds Head Vaquero.

March 17, 2006, 09:35 PM
Last purchase: one of the last M1903A3s from the CMP

Next purchase: it's been ordered, but I haven't paid for it yet, and I've got the rest of the parts. Oly Arms lower to build a 9mm AR (upper is RRA)

March 17, 2006, 09:53 PM
Last purchase a Glock 17.

Next purchase a Remington 870 and then an M1A. I will then have all the rifles and such that I have always wanted. If you believe that I have a bridge I want to sell you!

March 18, 2006, 11:15 AM
Last pistol was a Grendel P-12.380 for the better half, but she doesn't like it so it became my drss pistol.
Last rifle was a Kel_tec Sub2K, and I like it very much
Next pistol ? whatever strikes my fancy, that I can sneek in under budget
Next rifle possibly another AK/SKS because I like 7.62x39 as a stockplie weapon/round.

March 18, 2006, 11:27 AM
I put a Smith and Wesson 39-2, 9mm on lay-a-way yesterday. I guess that's both last and next. :D

March 18, 2006, 02:38 PM
My next gun purchase will be a S&W M&P 15 (S&W version of an AR15). I'll get it as soon as I can scrape up the cash!

March 18, 2006, 03:07 PM
Next rifle possibly another AK/SKS because I like 7.62x39 as a stockplie weapon/round.

I hope you're not trying to build your stockpile now, because it's gotten a little scarce lately.....:uhoh:

March 18, 2006, 03:09 PM
A 1911, but its sooooo hard to pick one......has got to be one of the hardest decisions of my life:eek:

March 18, 2006, 03:12 PM
Monkeybear...I would vote for a Kimber 1911. I love mine. I have the Pro Carry II stainless.

March 18, 2006, 04:33 PM
P7 so bad I can taste it. Saving my pennies.

March 18, 2006, 04:40 PM
I bought an old Mossberg 22 Magnum "chuckster". Sighted that little puppy in and she shoots great. Stripped the the old finish on the walnut stock and brought it back to life.:)

March 18, 2006, 04:42 PM

Well not really sure. May have been 3 truck bed loads of ammo, or was it that something for another member for a kid's event...

..then there was that 64MB USB drive for a 12 year old whom wanted do have the COTUS, BoR, Lists of Political Representatives, Mr. Bateman's "Metal and Wood" and Lendsringer's "Civil Disobedience,- and various other "important works"... Picture folder of her guns, Another "wish list folder" (includes daddy's 28 ga gun she claimed about 2 years ago)...

Or was it Ballistol ordered for some folks going thru concerns / being sensitive to cleaning , lube products since Cancer, Cancer treatments and such...

Well I do have a CCW renewal coming up, some special folks to meet if all pans out for me to attend the Tulsa gun show, would like to head to TN and meet some others...

...since purchasing gas is not only being responsible so as to not run out on the side of the road- I figure buying gas is "firearm responsible" when said gas is used to allow me tol share, assist, and pass forward to some folks that have asked for this or that...seems another one wants to learn about this "BB Gun and Ping Pong ball" dealie.

More to this bit than just guns.

Admit I do have a hankering for something(s) "personal" - sounds almost selfish. I want another Single Shot .410, A single shot .22 rifle - old ones, wood and blue, in great mechanical shape. [Seems I gave "one too many" away and none left for myself]. New "gun" - well that'd be a Spring Powered Marksman 2000 1911 styled BB Pistol. I want a blued one - so far only seen "steel" ones. Teaching tools - when I am not the one being the big kid with 'em...

I want some books...new works. Then again , never can have too many copies of Brister, or Ruark around either...

If Gary don't shut up - liable to give me a hankering for blackpowder in something or another. Dr. Rob don't help - him and that dad- burnded BP shotgun of his...;)

I will just give next purchases.

M1 Carbine

Something in a 9mm

Compact 870 build for BOV

In that order,. So please buy some decals to help with funds for the Carbine :D

March 30, 2007, 05:12 AM
Compact 870IMO, the 870 should be first.

Delivers 9 9 mm rnds in one shot.

Yeah, being "round",
they won't penetrate as deeply.

But being 9,
they will do
more damage.

March 30, 2007, 05:39 AM
IMO, the 870 should be first.

I was just saying what will be next, I already have an 870 ;)

March 30, 2007, 05:41 AM

March 30, 2007, 09:05 AM
Two Yugo SKS Carbines.

March 30, 2007, 10:11 AM
Last purchase was an S & W 500, 4 inch.
Reason why I bought it (besides using it for hunting), because its a modern, new design handgun and cartridge in this century. Keeping some of the classic lines of the classic revolvers.
Something like, at the time, the P38 was to that classic T.V. series (T.V. land), Man from U.N.C.L.E. With that flash suppressor on the end of it, besides the silencer. It must have been cool and ahead of its time. Next purchase might be a communicator pen. One that shoots some type of cartridge would be a bonus.

Ruger Single six

Next pistol:

March 30, 2007, 05:53 PM
Last - Galesi .25 ACP. Why? Why not? It was cheap, odd, and I didn't own a tiny gun.
Next - I need a 4" .38/.357. But I think Mr. Abby is going to claim the next handgun purchase.

Last - Smith&Wesson M&P 15. Sweeeeet....
Next - CMP M1 carbine. Alas, everything must be on hold so as not to divert any funds from this one...

I do a terrible job of planning these things. I'd be OK if occasionally I wasn't sucked into random impulse buys (like the .25). Then again, if it weren't for the random impulse buys, there'd be no adventure...

I've only bought two guns since this thread last surfaced--a Benelli SBE II last summer and a Kel-Tec PLR-16 that I picked up earlier this month. The two guns couldn't be more different, but they are two of my all-time favorite guns. I've already shot more birds with the Benelli than I did with my previous shotgun, and the PLR-16 is insanely fun to shoot.

My next purchases, in no particular order:

Remington 870 Marine.
Ruger Super Redhawk Alaskan in .454 Casull.
A varmint gun in either .223 or .22-250. I'm leaning towards either a Tikka T3 or a Savage, but I wouldn't rule out another AR, and the new Ruger Mini 14 has my interest.
Another 642 (for my wife).
An AK47 underfolder.

I'll probably be working on this list for the next few years. Somehow I need to fit the purchase of a new Shelby Mustang GT into that scenario.

March 30, 2007, 09:34 PM
Colt Tactical Carbine AR-15
Slowly becoming a drain on funds as it is "tacticalized.":D

Up in the air, but will probably be a Glock 29. I held one in my hand today at the gun show. The proprietor knows he has me. He says he generally has at least one in stock, which is a good thing.

Unfortunately, I also want a KelTec PLR-16 and a Savage Striker in .308

Enfield No. 4
Marlin 1894 in .357
.357 Revolver
Mossberg 500

March 30, 2007, 11:54 PM
My last purchase was a Glock 21 camo edition.

The next i am interested in a rifle chambered in .375 remington. I was impressed with the ballistics.Plus I like big honkin bullets.... LOL Anyone know who's chambering this bullet besides remington ? They are a little bit pricey..... Rick

March 31, 2007, 12:01 AM
a decent handgun. Am debating utility/can afford sooner vs what I really want/have to save for

In other words a snub nose .38 or .357 vs a Sig 239

March 31, 2007, 12:05 AM
Last purchase was a Springfield M1A just 2 days ago. As far as next goes,it will just depend on what mood hits me when I visit the gunstore.
Been looking at several diferent things, possibly a S&W 500 revolver. That would give me 3 different 50 Cal weapons.

March 31, 2007, 12:10 AM

Last: None
Next: Nothing 100%, but looking at CZ-75 and PLR-16


Last: Mosin Nagant M44
Next: Saving up for an AR-15 m4 16"

Last: None
Next: Mossberg 500

March 31, 2007, 12:33 AM
I think I'm done... for now. 10 firearms in a bunch of calibers strikes me as enough. Well, there is that little NAA mini-revolver that I have my eye on. .22LR or .22WMR, or two cylinders... decisions, decisions. ;)

March 31, 2007, 09:51 AM
Last purchase was another 10/22. Next thinking about a couple more Nagants and a bunch of ammo (to put up for some SHTF scenerios). I am also thinking about another 9mm pistol and a semi 30-06. I am wanting to consolodate cals so that I can share ammo. Right now I have a rifles in 6 cal. I would like to reduce that to 2 and buy more bulk ammo. I would also like to have another 12 ga and more buch shot.

Colt LE6920 Carbine, should be picking it up today.

Nothing else planned, I've pretty much got all the bases covered. Besides that, my wife is now watching me like a hawk since the "Colt LE6920" slipped by.

I should add another gone to my upcoming list: Browning BAR Lightweight Stalker in .308. I want an open-sight autoloader for carrying in thick woods, and I want something in .308 caliber. AR10-type guns are too damned heavy, as are the G91/FN-FAL clones. I might consider a Saiga, but I'm afraid once I started modifying a Saiga, I'd be hooked and become one of those Saiga nuts.;)

Regarding the PLR-16, I highly recommend it. Mine was a bit stiff for the first 200 rounds--I recommend cleaning it after no more than 50 rounds, and probably again at 100 and 200 rounds--but after everything bedded in it has worked flawlessly with all my AR magazines, even the old, worn-out ones.

March 31, 2007, 11:13 AM
Last purchase. CZ75B. It's on the way to a top CZ gunsmith for trigger work, new sights and grips. Next purchase. Maybe an 1873 Winchester replica, all slicked up. Eventually Smith and Wesson 686 4". SG

March 31, 2007, 06:03 PM
last pistol - Browning BDA 380. Didn't intend to, but I know better than to handle guns. Sort of like a puppy, you pick them up, caress them and tell them how nice they are, next thing you know they've followed you home.

Don't know the next one - been looking for a H&R break action .22 but haven't found one yet.

Last rifle - Marlin Camp 9. Next one would have been a Marlin 45-70 cowboy, but found a deal and it came home the same day as the Camp 9. Don't really have a "next rifle" picked out yet.

Still looking for a Marlin o/u 90 shotgun.


Nomad, 2nd
March 31, 2007, 06:25 PM
Last pistol:
A Pair of S&W 65's 3" No lock (Why buy one when you can have 2)
Why: I like No lock S&W's, and 3" is the BEST!

Last rifle:
A Pair of K31's One a shooter, one a collector
Why: I shot a buddies

Next pistol: I don't know

Next rifle: a pair of AK74's
Why: I just bought 60,000 rounds of 5.45x39

March 31, 2007, 07:03 PM
Next Purchase: Ruger GP100 or Glock 19

Last Purchase: XD45 ACP

March 31, 2007, 07:27 PM
Next planned purchase is a Weatherby Mark XXII rifle (bolt action 22); this hopefully will be followed by a Marlin 1894 (41 mag). Already have the scope for the Weatherby. It's going to happen. I keep putting off the 1894.
No planned handgun purchases at this time; Last one was a Model 18 Smith and it was not planned for.

March 31, 2007, 07:29 PM
Last Purchase: AR-15

Next: I dunno. A Glock, maybe.

April 1, 2007, 03:04 PM
Current is an FAL build into a DMR configuration.

Next will be an AR carbine build.


April 1, 2007, 03:19 PM
Well last year a had to sell off about 12 firearms from my collection to help an ex-girl friend that was ill an unable to work. Sence that time I recently compleated a Caspian 1911 build (recon rail) that is real sweet.

I just ordered and am awaiting the arrival my my newest buy, a FN FS2000.

there are several condenders for my next buy:
1. AR-15 (to replace the one I sold last year)
2. Hi-power
3. Kel-Tec P3AT (also to replace the one I had to sell)
4. Kahr CW40 or MP40
5. Whatever good deal I find (that interest me) at the gun show in 2 weeks.

April 1, 2007, 06:15 PM
I think I'm gonna start looking for a nice, C stock 1903A3.

Gotta put a few $$$ away first, though. The days of just whipping out the Mastercard at a gun show/shop when I see something I like are over.

The last gun I bought was a Ruger Single Six for my kids.

April 1, 2007, 06:24 PM
Last one: Rock River AR.

Next one: S&W M&P in 9 mm.

April 1, 2007, 06:42 PM
Next one Baker Rifle Replica 61 caliber flintlock.
If you have not seen the BBC series Sharpe's Rifles, join Netflix and get all 15 episodes. Not only is it excellent but the guys getting killed are French! A win-win in my book! To be a "chosen man" you had to be able to hit a man at 300 yards off a rest. Lots of shooting, swordplay, women being disrobed, explosions and some great long range shooting.(and no nutri-system ads!)

Then after that comes a DPMS 260 Remington 24" sniper with a 4-16 S&B PH Mil-Dot. You just never know when a mullah might pop up!

April 1, 2007, 06:56 PM
1895 Chilean Mauser was the last thing I got last Monday. Next will be ... whatever i can afford :D Want a Kel-Tec rifle of some sort or maybe a 9mm, don't have one yet. Just not sure yet.

April 1, 2007, 06:59 PM
Just bought (yesterday) a Glock 27, OD frame, Trijicon sights........Traded in two guns I never shoot anymore (SW 640 & 6906), plus got the LE Glock price!!!!!.....Will compliment my on-duty Glock 23......I am a pretty happy camper right now... Wow my post count is up to 2!!!! Look out.

April 1, 2007, 07:20 PM
Two weeks ago, I purchased my last and final gun...a Springfield Armory 1911-A1 Loaded in stainless steel. It's a beauty!

I bought my first gun, a Remington 870 Express Magnum, two years ago. I followed that purchase a few months later with a S&W Model 620 revolver.

Six months later, after lots of online research, I bought a Springfield Armory XD45 Service model.

My next two gun purchases were within the past six months for my wife, a Taurus Millenium Pro and a Kahr CW9.

So, I'm definitely finished buying guns. Although a nice AR would sure be fine to have, wouldn't it?

April 1, 2007, 08:20 PM
A year ago I posted my answer.

Was waiting for this:
Which finally showed up a couple months ago. Lovely bugger, breaks down nicely, on target to 100m out of the box, and quiet enough that the dominant noise (to the shooter) is the action cycling.

Next up:
Purchases will be slow for a while. The next dream is a kevlar-and-chrome Alaskan Co-Pilot (http://www.wildwestguns.com/CoPilot_And_Guide_Rifles/body_copilot_and_guide_rifles.html) in .457WWM / .45-70.
...though I'm tempted by a pair of Glock 19s, and if 922(o) falls (thanks to Parker may happen) I'd be straight on to an M4.
...and the thought of getting a M/N-44 just keeps nagging at me.

April 1, 2007, 08:40 PM
To supercede my last post, my last purchase since then is a CMP H&R M12.

(Partial photo)

April 1, 2007, 09:18 PM
Last purchase XD 45 Tact Yesterday --- (love it allready)
Next purchase probably Browning Buck Mark 22 -- for wife

April 1, 2007, 09:33 PM
Last was a Ruger .41 Mag Blackhawk-used of course, next bonds snake slayer .45/410. Also having a model 7 Rem. rebarreled to .358 Winchester.

April 1, 2007, 10:38 PM
I just picked up a Mosin Nagant 91/30, an ex-Dragoon built on a 1927 Tula reciever. It is in great condition.

I have no idea what I am going to get next. I would like an AK, though. I appreciate the Russian mindset when it comes to arms design.

April 1, 2007, 10:55 PM
Last purchases were yesterday-----M72 Yugo RPK in 7.62x39 [ 11.4 pounds with heavy 21 inch barrel ] and a CZ PCR 9mm

My next purchase will likely be "god only knows", as it depends on what comes into the shop that I can't pass up due to price.

April 1, 2007, 11:00 PM
wasr-10, then i promise no more guns until Kel-Tec RFB

April 1, 2007, 11:05 PM
Last two purchase were a Savage 775A Semi-auto 16ga shotgun and a Ruger MKIII .22.

I need to go shoot them.

April 1, 2007, 11:55 PM
Last: Yesterday picked up Sig GSR.

Next: Upper for AR build, Sig 556 I have ordered (and a deposite on) or something else that catches my eye. I am a very impulsive gun buyer. :banghead:

April 2, 2007, 12:30 AM
Last: Romanian Ak-47
Next: probably Mosin nagant M38 or M44 that will get scout scoped.

Can anyone recomend a good scout style mount for said rifle?

April 3, 2007, 08:37 PM
Last: FS2000
Next: Kel-tec bullpup or the FN SCAR which ever one comes out first.

Bazooka Joe71
April 3, 2007, 08:43 PM

Last: CZ75 SP01
Next: SA XD.45 service/compact(not sure)


Last: MN M44
Next: Either an M1 Garand or a 91/30(depends on when I can get to CMP, but both will be bought soon)

April 3, 2007, 09:22 PM
Just picked up a used Ruger Blackhawk with 2 cylinders: 45 Long Colt and 45 ACP.


April 3, 2007, 09:48 PM
Last purchase was an old .222 Savage 340. It is a remarkable shooter, at least with Hornady V-Max bullets. However, it is without a doubt by far the ugliest gun I own. Like riding a moped or dating a fat girl, it's fun until your friends see.

CZ just released the 527 in a left hand .223. That will be my next gun, unless I run across a Smith 696, which remains number one on my to-do list.

April 3, 2007, 09:56 PM
A second Mosin M-44 for $79.00 today.

April 3, 2007, 10:31 PM
Last gun i got was my Sig P226 Blackwater.

Next gun- There are so many i want its not even funny.

Rifles- Springfield M1A SOCOM II or a left handed Remington 700 LTR if they even make it in left hand model.

Handguns- Stainless P226 while i can still get one, Kimber Eclipse Target, Five-Seven, USP Compact 9mm

Theres just so many that i want!

Still 2 Many Choices!?
April 3, 2007, 11:03 PM
Last handgun was a Colt Commander series 80 so that I could speak for both firearms in all the Glock vs. 1911 threads:D ...

My last rifle was/is a .308 DSA FAL that I am waiting for, and probably will be waiting another 2-3 months for:cuss: :banghead: !!!!

Next I am torn between getting a suppressor for the AR's, SBR'ing an AR(or two), or a .308 precision rife...(maybe AR-10, good .308 bolt action, maybe a .50 hmmm)

Still 2 Many Choices!?

April 22, 2007, 01:56 AM
Last - HK USPc 40
Next - Kimber

Last - Romanian AK47
Next - Vepr

April 22, 2007, 06:03 PM
I danged near bought a Sig 239 with a DAK trigger. I found a nice used one that was local, but it was a 9mm and I wanted a .40 or .45 ACP for concealed carry. I might have bought a Sig 239 SAS if I had found one available but while I was searching for one I had an epiphany--I'm a Glock guy and I should stick with what I know works. I bought a 36 instead.

April 22, 2007, 06:05 PM
S&w 640-1

April 22, 2007, 06:08 PM
Does anyone on this forum know how to use the "Edit" feature?Frustrating,to say the least.:confused:

April 22, 2007, 06:18 PM
got the M&P

Have enough cash in hand to find myself the NRM Colt Series 70 of my dream at next week's gun show... but might end up biting on one of the .22 rifles I've been looking at all day. Taurus 62 & 63, Marlin 39a, CZ452 FS... so many rimfires, so little time.

April 22, 2007, 06:28 PM
Well my latest purchase is an XD 5" tactical .45acp. The problem is that my dealer cannot get one in stock yet (not such a bad thing, not in a hurry and could use the time to save more money)

The next purchase will be a Ruger SP101 in 357mag.

The purchase after that will be a taurus 24/7 in .45acp

April 22, 2007, 07:36 PM
My last purchase was a Colt 1911 Series 80... and man, I love it to death!

April 22, 2007, 07:41 PM

April 23, 2007, 12:29 AM
Just bought a milled receiver, underfolder Arsenal Arms AK-47 today, along with 1,000 rounds of ammo and two additional magazines. Had it in mind to also buy a Remington 870 Express 12 gauge shotgun with both front and rear vertical grips. Suck on that, MCarthy!!

Man, did I spend the money today (damn near $2,000) and last weekend at the Hilton show in Reno. I dropped a thousand there on a big-ass scope and a 16" free-float upper in a fluted heavy barrel for my multiple AR-15s.

I am single, not married, no kids and no debts of any kind...

April 23, 2007, 01:28 AM
Last rifle was a Mosin Nagant M44, I got it Sunday at the gun show.
Open to suggestion on next long gun. And AR would be nice, but they are aweful pricey.

Last pistol was S&W Sigma 9mm, next will be S&W 637 snubby.

April 23, 2007, 02:06 AM
Last cash purchase : FTF for a S&W 1006 for $500
