So next year I am going to have a sufficient amount of funds to buy several weapons.

I was gonna have a poll but I am gonna narrow it down, please tell me what you think.

Thanks guys.

(I dont have a shotgun yet.)

Here we go:

Remington 870 3" OD w/pistol grip/ 3 round mag ext/ rifled sights and its NIB w/ hardcase for it.

CZ 95B .45acp

Springfield 1911 GI

Browning Buckmark Target 5.5

Wanted a WWII era rifle maybe a nagant or a 98k please help me with that if you have any suggestions.

If you want the 870, get it. Between the CZ 97B and the Springfield 1911, I would have a hard time deciding too. As far as the mil-surp goes, keep your eyes peeled and keep your options open. Look for an excellent specimen(condition) at a price you can afford. You never know what you'll stumble across when it comes to those mil-surps. It's part of the fun.

You seem to be on the right track.

I apologize it is the 97b. I was actually gonna get the springfield and the 97b. Here is the way I pictured it going down.

Get the 870 for HD and maybe some hunting.

Get the CZ97b for fun.

The SpringField I was going to
a.build it into a ball gun
b.build it into a bullseye pistol

Some may say that "hey socal you can get a good match gun for the same price you can build one for or less." (My FFL is a trained gunsmith and specializes in building 1911's" no major name or anything like that but he has a lot of experience and is willing to show me how to smith a 1911 thought I would take the time to do some "bonding" and some training.

Was hoping someone on here had some experience with the CZ. Anyone?

Shooter, If you look it up there are lots of threads on CZ's of all types. I own several and like my 97 alot. However, it is big and may not fit your hand so I would try it before I bought one. It is accurate. The trigger is DA/SA so it is different than a 1911. I like mine but they aren't for everybody.

umm... you should get what YOU want, not what people on a faceless internet forum want... but since you asked,

skip that list, and get a Dan Wesson Patriot or Pointman - WHY, you ask, because that is what I (Hemi) want... and you asked MY opinion...

Now, go think about what YOU want, then get it...
