Just curious what the trends are out there: What was the last gun you bought, and what's the next one you intend on buying (or hope to get for Christmas!)

For me, the last one (bought this afternoon, haven't had a chance to fire it yet!) was a Glock G36. My next one is on order, a Les Baer Stinger.

Well, I got a Mosin Nagant 91/30 as an early Xmas gift from the sainted GF.

Next gun will either be a SKS or a S&W 60 2 1/4 .357.

I had the Smith and traded it for a Ruger P97, which is a fine gun, but I miss my snubbie!:(

Last was a Ruger Mark II Target - I never owned a .22 pistol before and wanted one :D

Next will probably be a decent bolt gun, probably .308. I'm leaning toward the savage 10FP-LE2 - seems to be best bang for buck. The CZ 550 looks pretty nice, but kinda expensive relative to the Savage.

But it'll all be moot if I don't get a job soon :uhoh: :(

last one was a Romanian M44 tactical-scout-sillyness project rifle. ( no two parts come close to matching, serial # wise, so why not skunk it out??)

next one will be either a Glock 20, a Springfield WWII Mil-Spec, or a Garand, assuming I qualify. now, to make my mind up. :neener:

the last go i got was an HK USP .40. I intend to make my next purchace either a Taurus Tracker .357 (i need a revolver) or a Arsenal SAM-7 (I need a rifle). depends which i find the best bargain on first.

Last one was a Remington 870 HD model.

Next one will be a Kimber Ultra Carry for the wife.

Next one for me will probably be a Yugo SKS (once the C&R gets here), unless I find a really great deal on an AK clone first...I just feel the urge to get something evil.

My most recently adopted gun is a 1982 Colt Diamondback .22 caliber revolver, blued, with a six-inch barrel. Now I'm in the mood for the exact same gun in .38 caliber—unless, of course, I happen to find a .22 caliber match pistol that looks interesting, or another Python, or a...

Last ones, a P3AT, a CZ40B, and an HK USPc .357.

Next, a Steyr S40, a Kahr PM9, and .223 varmit rifle. Either the Savage 110FP or CZ 527.

December 13, 2003, 08:50 PM
Last one was a Ruger SBH Hunter in .45LC. Next one I cannot decide on. A Ruger ss Bisley in .45LC, a HK P9S, a 1911 of some sort, a .357 da revolver, a high end .22 target pistol (Pardini, Hammerli) a single shot pistol (Competitor) a Ruger #1 in .45-70...
There's a number of new for 2004 models I've already heard of and added to the list but they'll likely take a while to hit the shelves with decent prices.

A Steyr SPP is the last gun I bought. For my next one I'm eyeing either a Ruger Single Six or 10/22. I need something that's mega cheap to shoot :p

Last one was a Uberti 1851 Navy from Dixie Gun Works. I had been wanting to upgrade my ASM for some time so finally "bit the bullet" and ordered the Uberti. Haven't shot it yet, but it looks great - fit and finish is outstanding.

Next one - wouldn't you know - right after the 1851 arrived a sale flyer came from Dixie and they had a Uberti 1861 Navy on sale for $185. I had not planned on getting this one, but the price was too good to pass up. It is on back-order. The only problem is how to explain this to the wife. Hopefully, it will be delivered when she is not home. Don't think she will understand that it was just too good a deal to pass up.

December 13, 2003, 09:36 PM
Last: A Kimber CustomII I bought almost a year ago.

Next: I want a 9mm, but can't decide which! Beretta, Glock, USP, Hi-Power, Sig...So many choices! I'll probably pick up whichever I can get the best deal on. I would also like to get a rifle, but I need to learn and research a bit more.

VKT Finn M-39 was my last and I am currently awaiting the arrival of my ORH Imbel FAL.

Last, NIB m-10 M&P from "78". Next, CZ-85c, bhp, 4 inch m-19, m-18 , more model 10's. Whatever presents itself when I have enough money for it. It is a sickness. Right???????????????????????????


*I can't get more M&P's out of my head*

My last one was actually two. A Buckmark Bullseye (.22lr) and a Bisley Super Blackhawk Hunter(.44 Mag).

Not sure on the next one yet. I have an interest in building a custom 10/22 or building a 1911 chambered in .400 cor-bon.

Of course, I've wanted a Desert Eagle for a long time...:D

Last = Ruger New Model Single Six .22LR/.22mag, stainless with walnut stocks.

But it is still in Christmas wrap. Santa delivered early.:D

Next gun will be a Kimber .45. Probably the Tactical Custom II, but maybe the Eclipse.

Or it could be a bolt-action rifle in .308. Then again, it could be a nice over/under shotgun.

So many choices.:uhoh:

Latest = Glock 27 (today). Also, in the past week and over the next couple of days, I'll be taking delivery of several guns that I've bought over the past few months and had shipped directly to a gunsmith for checking and smoothing-out. It's going to be gun heaven for a few days! Three rifles, six pistols and three revolvers... :D :D :D :D :D

Next gun - well, I'm jonesing after a Springfield Loaded 1911A1 full-size in the lightweight frame configuration. I'm trying to trade a Kimber and perhaps a couple of other bits and pieces for it. Wish me luck!

December 13, 2003, 11:11 PM
Last would be the AR-15 I just finished building. Next is undecided. Probably a bolt action milsurp of some variety. I keep waffling as to whether I want a Mauser, a Mosin and an Enfield.

Early Christmas was a new Springfield Stainless Loaded and an old Ruger Blackhawk 3 screw 357 4 5/8.

Next up is a Rem 700 Police Light Tactical 20" barrel 308 with a Leupold or Burris mildot.

Last was a Kimber Series I Classic Royal.

Next: Either a Marine Magnum 870, 870 HD, Benelli M1, or a SA XD-9 or XD-40 Subcompact.

Still haven't deciced yet. I want them all :o

December 14, 2003, 02:32 AM
- -That my LAST acquisition was a Remington 700 Safari in .375 H&H. I've shot it but only with iron sights. Just mounted an old Weaver K-1.5 for load development, but haven't shot it with scope yet.

But, I have JUST traded for Remington 700 Classic in .35Whelen, a piece I've been seeking for a couple of years now. The nifty little Weaver variable 1.5 to 4 X needs servicing, though. I'll probably shoot it with iron sights while that's being done.

Next firearm may be a bit down the road - - I've had some profound vehicle trouble recently and have hit near-max on credit card to un-strand myself. This is most probably when a three-inch S&W M65 will show up at a decent price . . . .
;)

Best,
Johnny

Last gun: Beretta 92G Elite without carbon fiber grips.

Next gun, probably a USP9C or AR-15 or Cx4 Storm, depending on the job situation.

Armor is coming before either though.

December 14, 2003, 04:48 AM
Colt 1911 series 70 Govt. (new production) and another series 70 Govt. (G70 suffix) worked up by Novak as an IPSC / IDPA blaster. Don't know if it's infatuation or real 1911 love, but boy did I get bit by the bug!


Marine 870 looks like a prospective future purchase.

December 14, 2003, 04:58 AM
Most recent was a 226. Next will probably be an SKS just because they're so cheap right now ("as new" $130 delivered :what: ). After that...I dunno, I want a 686+ but I really feel the need for a 1919. Of course, a Springfield Loaded would be awesome...or a Savage 10FP...or an AR...BAAAAHH too many things that I want. There's no telling what will come home with me next :uhoh:

Dannyboy
December 14, 2003, 07:13 AM
My last was my Sako 75 Hunter. My next will be one of these: Ruger Super RedHawk in .44, SIG P220, STI Trojan 5.0, or a BHP (the most likely one).

SDC
December 14, 2003, 07:26 AM
Last for me was a 2 for 1: a Bisley Vaquero and a Win 94AE Trail's End, both in 44 Mag. Next, I'm not sure; probably either a 629 or a used PPK that I've been looking at.

December 14, 2003, 08:46 AM
Last was a S&W 640 .357 Centennial.

Next will be a stainless 4" Ruger GP100 or a 6" S&W 27 if I can find a pristine one. Others on my list include a stainless Springfield Loaded Champion and 3" S&W 65 or 64.

The fat man in the red suit is bringing a Lyman Great Plains Rifle in .54 caliber so I can light off all this Triple 7 and magnum #11 caps I've aquired .
After that I should have my C&R license. Then [while rubbing hands together] hooo boy.................:D

Last gun was a Smith & Wesson Model 65

Next gun will be maybe a Ruger Bisley Blackhawk Hunter or a Ruger Super Redhawk. Also a Bersa Thunder 380 is on my list. Of course if I run into a nice Mountain Gun in 45 Colt first, the plan might change. :cool:

The last one I got was a SA WWII 1911.

The next one is a FEG Model PJK-9HP BHP clone.

The next one was going to be a wheelgun, but I realized that the FEG’s status on the CA DOJ list is going to expire Jan 17th. So I got one while the getting was still good!

December 15, 2003, 06:18 AM
Last gun bought was a S&W M10 becasue I've always wanted a revolver. I am still torn over my next purchase, either a 9mm SIG or a quality built post-ban FAL. I guess I'll decide when I have the cash in hand.
