Firearm 2012 purchase resolutions ???


December 25, 2011, 03:13 PM
For 2012, is there any "dream" firearm that you may like to buy?

For me, I would like to purchase an original S&W 627PC sub nose "Clint Eastwood" 8 shot .357 revolver.

No, not the new version.

I would like the pre-lock Lew Horton version.

Quick question ......... what is the going price for these original Lew Horton versions of the 627PC snub nose revolver in the PC case in like new to NIB condition?

So what's your 2012 "dream" firearm?

Season's Greetings!

Thanks .........

All of them? I do have a long list :)

Probably the first with be a 1917 or a Swiss 1889

December 25, 2011, 04:38 PM
No dream. I am going to by a RUGER M77/357. :)

December 25, 2011, 05:23 PM
I'm buying a PSE Revenge bow this year and deer hunting with it.

Last year I shot my first muzzle loader deer and this year I shot my first shotgun deer. Hope to rifle, shotgun, muzzle loader and bow hunt next year.

Got my buddy to buy a new muzzle loader last year and he shot a nice doe the next day.

No, probably not any dream guns.

Debating what I want to get now actually. I have a couple different wants. Maybe new glass, maybe a PSA, maybe a new .22, maybe a "new" M1, maybe components. Hard to say. I have a hard time deciding what to buy sometimes.

December 25, 2011, 06:33 PM
My dream fiream for 2012 is a Colt SP901

December 25, 2011, 06:41 PM
Honestly, I would have preferred to purchase no firearms in 2012, but I think that Dan Wesson Titan Elite might be more temptation than I can bear.

I've already started selling plasma and eating nothing but ramen noodles in anticipation of a possible buy.


December 25, 2011, 06:42 PM
Handgun: Ed Brown Executive Carry 1911

Rifle: Ruger #1 in .45-70 if a friend comes through on his invitation to hunt bears in Alaska.

December 25, 2011, 07:06 PM
IF, and I do mean IF I could fill my list money wise, there's no way I could buy 50 or 60 guns in one year without drawing a great amount of unneeded attention to myself by our uncle.

On the other hand, I did buy a looong wanted pistol for myself for Christmas. A SA EMP .40. So I guess I'm good for a year? or two?

I'm looking at 2012 to be the year I finally get a few long-put-off projects completed. Have a Ruger #1 that needs to be sent for a rechambering, a Single Six that needs some work and a Blackhawk that will be getting a complete makeover. So...unless something very intriguing comes along, I'm looking at fewer purchases hopefully. Quality over quantity! Besides, there's verrry few left on the "gotta get" list.

December 25, 2011, 07:32 PM
This might be my year to rekindle a relationship with a 1911.

December 25, 2011, 07:53 PM
I'm dreaming for a Kahr cm40, hope they are out for January gun shows

December 25, 2011, 08:14 PM
Find a job then buy my first 1911. Sick of not owning one.

December 25, 2011, 08:39 PM
I'm hoping for two new gun purchases in 2012.

I'm itching for an SKS, and after watching the Firefly Marathon on Science, I'm set on getting a Taurus model 85 (for the base of a Mal Reynolds pistol look-a-like build). Might get a model with the longer barrel though and in .22lr.

December 25, 2011, 08:55 PM
A RIA 1911 (45 or 9, havent decided)
Getting my Mak parked
An auto 12ga for my brother
A few 22 semis for plinking in NY

Double Vision
December 25, 2011, 09:22 PM
The short list includes a home defense scattergun and a revolver that the Mrs. will be comfortable with.

Striker Fired
December 25, 2011, 09:27 PM
A Caspian or STI frame and slide in the white. To build a custom 1911 of my own . Otherwise a SR1911 will do for now.

December 25, 2011, 09:29 PM
so many guns,so little money

December 25, 2011, 09:33 PM
This year's short list goals includes an M1, Colt AR and maybe the new Keltec .22 mag pistol...Will see tho...

Ignition Override
December 25, 2011, 09:43 PM
A second 'Service Grade' Garand from the CMP, if they will have many more available.
Five Enfields, but only one M-1...shameful.

Maybe "bad news" next November could result in imports of M-1s being blocked from other countries (?), as has already been the case regarding South Korea.

December 25, 2011, 10:04 PM
I plan to make zip, zero, nada in new gun purchases in 2012.

I’m getting an all around bolt action (deer/coyote) in the next couple of days and that will be the last for at least a year.

I’ll be taking all firearm related discretionary income and spending it on shooting and classes.

Cast of One
December 25, 2011, 10:25 PM
I have a standing goal of buying at least three guns per year. As of Christmas Day 2011, my three guns for 2012 will be a Colt King Cobra 6" stainless, M1 Thompson repro, and a M1903A3. Also thinking about substituting a Dillion 550 for the third gun. Two weeks from now, the list will have changed.

December 25, 2011, 10:32 PM
Something in a 4" .40 S&W. I didn't like the way the Glock felt in my hand, nor the Springer XD. A S&W M&P is on the short list but I'd like to find a CZ75 and FN to fondle. I'd like to find something with an external hammer and thumb safety - 1911 habits die hard.

December 25, 2011, 10:38 PM
CZ Shadow for USPSA Production.

December 25, 2011, 10:46 PM
I bought everything already

December 25, 2011, 11:35 PM
A .257 caliber bolt action rifle, a 9mm pocket gun, and something in .45ACP.

December 26, 2011, 12:20 AM
Well I'll be turning 21 in less then two months, so one of my resolutions is to go out and buy a .22 revolver (looking at the S&W 617 but the price is just plain awful:cuss:).

Dr.Mall Ninja
December 26, 2011, 12:35 AM
A Saiga and a 1911.. I had both then got in a situation where I needed to sell them... now ill have to go out a buy more.

December 26, 2011, 12:49 AM
My goal is a 22 silencer and possibly a new 22 for it or a barrel fit for it for my existing goodies. My dream would be enough land to shoot what i want to. Wife is wanting a purple gun...doesnt matter what just purple and goes bang.

December 26, 2011, 01:08 AM
DSA 11 inch SA58 - A .308 11" SBR - What's not to love?

Rock River .458 SOCOM (do you have to ask?)

Browning Buckmark (I don't have one and they look fun)

December 26, 2011, 07:43 AM
Springfield 1911
CZ 75

December 26, 2011, 08:22 AM
A Stag 3gun AR_15,
Glock 21
Bersa 380 for the wife.

December 26, 2011, 08:25 AM
I bought so many this year it is my resolution not to buy anymore until Oct. I've got to start thinking with my head (the one that pays the bills) and stop thinking with my.........trigger finger?

December 27, 2011, 04:17 AM
I'll be turning 18 this summer, and I would like to get a heavy bbl 20" or 24" quality AR15. Gotta get ready for the next AWB ;)

December 27, 2011, 10:39 AM
Tied at number 1 is a Ruger Mk2 22/45 and a Mosin Nagant. After that, a Makarov or CZ-82 would be fun.

Mauser lover
December 27, 2011, 10:52 AM
Hoping to get a couple of Mosin 91/30s and a Hi Standard Sentinel four inch or so.

Maybe a 1911, oh and how about one of those Garands, and a AR-15, maybe a Taurus .44 Mag Revolver and their eight shot .357 mag and a Mini-14 with a see through scope mount, oh I almost forgot, a Ruger M77 in .22-250 Rem.............

December 27, 2011, 11:43 AM
For me: Purchase less, shoot more. No plans to purchase any firearms this year, can't think of anything that I want(strange for me). Plan on shooting a lot and honing my skills.

Mikey Idaho
December 27, 2011, 12:46 PM
No dream guns, realistically this year I will buy a Browning Buckmark to round out my collection and either a Ruger LC9 or LCR once I get my concealed permit.

December 27, 2011, 04:04 PM
I keep looking at Ruger PC9s on the auction sites, but I really don't need one. I could also pick up a S&W M&P 15-22 later this year for my son. Can't think of much else I'm interested in getting at this point.

December 27, 2011, 08:01 PM
Only thing I plan on buying in the somewhat near future is a 1911. My birthday is April 2, that's most likely what I'll treat myself with.

I got an AR-15 for Christmas, so that was a big one off my list.

December 27, 2011, 08:14 PM
I've got a hankerin for a USGI M1 Carbine & a pretty nice K98 to add to the collection.

Got a '55 Springer Service Grd Special Garand for Christmas so you'd think I would be satisfied for a while....but nope! :D

December 27, 2011, 09:12 PM
a 3" 624 and a 625.

December 29, 2011, 01:24 AM
Hoping to buy an XD 40 tactical and a CZ P-01.

December 29, 2011, 01:29 AM
Something to back up my 1911 :uhoh:

Quick Shot xMLx
December 29, 2011, 01:34 AM
Not really a dream as I'll have the money in late Jan/early Feb but an AK-74(probably a WW) and a CZ SP-01.

After that I'm not quite sure, probably some kind of sub-compact for summer carry. Might buy another sub-comp Glock as I traded my 27 or might switch it up and try something like an M&P or something.

Ignition Override
December 29, 2011, 02:46 AM
Were companies interested in producing more than a few handgun choices for "lefties", some might have appeal, i.e. a sleek 380 or small 9mm in the PPK style.

December 29, 2011, 02:56 AM
A Caspian or STI frame and slide in the white. To build a custom 1911 of my own . Otherwise a SR1911 will do for now.
Will the SR1911 be more available in '12?

December 29, 2011, 03:07 AM
As long as finances follow through I would like to pick up either a Ruger SP101, GP100, Security Six or a S&W 686 for conceal carry.

December 29, 2011, 03:14 AM
I should make a resolution to not buy any guns this year and be more financially responsible but I've already got some things in the works. Innovative Arms is building me a .300 Blackout upper and rebuilding my 11.5" upper with their Warfighter Advanced Receiver.

December 29, 2011, 11:58 AM
KSG, Glock 21sf, 308 or 30.06 bolt gun with a nice piece of glass, come to think of it, why not both? And I've been hankering for a compact 1911.

Sadly, there's more guns that I like than surplus capital. :(

December 29, 2011, 06:03 PM
I want a Uberti 1873 in 45lc with a cch receiver. Octagon barrel about 24" long. I have never even held one in my hands but I think they are awesome looking.

Also a garand from CMP would be nice.


December 30, 2011, 01:18 AM
Hopefully a fullstock 10/22 and cz912.

Metal Tiger
December 30, 2011, 03:33 AM
AAR 300 BlackOut. Dream for a California boy.:banghead:

December 30, 2011, 03:44 AM
3 or 4 new Mosins, a rifle for the wife, possibly a .22 for the boy.

If I get that list done, it will be my biggest gun year ever.

December 30, 2011, 09:38 AM
Sig P220 .45 ACP
S&W Model 60 .357 Magnum
Savage Model 10 .308
Another 870, or something in 20 gauge.
M91/30 or maybe an SKS.

I'll probably come away with two of those.

December 30, 2011, 09:41 AM
9mm AR

Sauer Grapes
December 30, 2011, 10:21 AM
Dream list? Yeah I got one. I try to keep myself routed in reality

December 31, 2011, 01:21 PM
something in the 22 variety with a threaded barrel and a suppressor. If I didn't already have a ruger 22/45 (non threaded barrel) I would go that route, but since I've got one already I may look at something different just for variety.

December 31, 2011, 04:59 PM
Buy less guns, shoot more bullets

December 31, 2011, 07:14 PM
Suppressors only this year and ammo too...

December 31, 2011, 11:01 PM
hmmmmmmmm.... lets see......Sturmgeweher (MP44)? thompson m1a1? MP9?...... opps I forgot I was in NY.
I would like a ruger single six, CM9 from Kahr, and some type of AR.

January 1, 2012, 11:51 AM
I suspect there are a couple Colt revolvers in my 2012 future if business stays at least as good as last year.

I always have a list of firearms that I "want", but they aren't dreams. It is just a matter of matching up availability and my ability to buy them. Sometimes the two do not match up regardless of what I might wish.

Buck Kramer
January 1, 2012, 12:25 PM
No guns yet (I'm sure It will change) but for now I need to focus on bulk ammo orders :)

January 1, 2012, 01:29 PM
A 4 to 6 inch Ruger GP100 for the wife's house gun is THE priority for firearm purchases this year.

January 1, 2012, 01:54 PM
Only three more ars to build, another 6.8,5.7, and 6.5 Creedmore. The rest is to finish customizing the 9 Colt 1911s I got this year. That will probably cost me more than another three pistols or rifles. Too many other projects to mention.



January 1, 2012, 11:02 PM
Ruger SR1911. Pain in the bee-hind to acquire in Kalifornistan but it can be done.

January 2, 2012, 12:09 AM
Short list is a Ruger 22/45, a 1911, and possibly a Browning Citori. Lately I've been wanting to get more into trap/skeet shooting. I was going to pick up the .22 soon because I want to spend more time at the range without spending a fortune on ammo. Luckily, I hit the power ball for $400 on New Years Eve so I'll be ordering one as soon as I coordinate with a local FFL holder. The guy I usually use is a bit out of the way so I'm planning to use someone closer.

January 2, 2012, 01:45 PM
Great stuff.

Thanks .........

January 2, 2012, 03:38 PM
Browning 1911 22 and Ruger SR1911. Though I am now slightly interested in the Ruger SR 22 as well.

January 2, 2012, 05:18 PM
A dream gun would be a Sig p210.

An aspiration for 2012 will be another Colt 1911, maybe if prices ease up a bit from the 100 year anniversary of 2011...

January 2, 2012, 05:35 PM

Not getting a gun, but I am getting a PSE Bow Madness XS Bow!

So pumped for deer hunting next year.

January 2, 2012, 07:13 PM
My resolution is to sell one (or 2) to buy one. Self funding and thinning out the herd taking up my safe.

January 2, 2012, 08:38 PM
Browning 1911-22
Colt Python

January 3, 2012, 12:34 PM
Kel-Tec KSG...if it's ever released
Ruger SR1911
Remington 700 SPS Tactical AAC-SD

January 4, 2012, 02:59 PM
A shotgun suitable for 3-gun
A slush fund for great deals so I don't miss them like this past year....

January 4, 2012, 09:05 PM
One out of 3 down, just did the paperwork for my 22/45. 1911 & O/U to go...

January 4, 2012, 09:16 PM
A new CZ rifle to replace the one I gave my son. Hopefully...

January 4, 2012, 09:28 PM
More training. Lots more shooting.

In fact, I've got a range going up in the back yard later this week. It's only 100 yards, but it's a huge improvement over the current 90 minute drive each way to the range.

I am thinking about picking up a Colt 6920.

January 5, 2012, 12:18 AM
I have a couple of 'dream' firearms i'd like to get my hands on this year:
- a nice 1911 (Sig, Springfield, etc)
- either a .308 rifle or a 12ga shotgun

January 5, 2012, 10:13 AM
I will own a caracal before this year is up

January 5, 2012, 10:57 AM
My main firearms "resolution" for 2012 is just to get out to the range more often. That aside, I have a number of guns on my "to buy" list, but I really want to add a S&W 629 to my gun safe this year.

January 5, 2012, 10:38 PM
- A .22 semiauto- can't make up my mind- either a buckmark or a Sig classic
- A Gen 4 Glock 19 or 17

January 7, 2012, 12:16 AM
I have curtailed my purchases of new firearms and will concentrate on accessories which will include optics, other sighting devices, magazines, bipods, etc. I will also buy and fire more ammunition and take training courses to become a more capable fighter/hunter/ target shooter. I might buy .22 conversion kits or .22 versions of my fighting guns, but there is really no good reason for anyone that possesses a fair number of firearms to continue to buy w/o a good reason other than that they want another gun. How many people on this forum own more than 20 guns. I strongly suspect that there many here that do and will continue to purchase. It is not wrong for one to buy as many guns as you can, but for me it is not the most beneficial way to use my limited funds to achieve what I want. My latest gun last yr was a used glock that was fitted with a Suarez TSD RMR Trijicon sight. I like it and will begin putting these optics on more of my handguns. My next purchase will be aimpoints and eotechs for my AKs. Then eventually something I can really use that will be night vision optics once I learn more about it.

Wow, we are coming to the end of 2012. I didn't get anything that I put down on my list...

December 18, 2012, 03:37 PM
I just looked, and I fulfilled 50% of my wish list.

All I want in 2013 is to be able to keep them.

December 19, 2012, 11:16 AM
Yeah, that would be nice...
