How would you spend $2000?

    I'm trying to muster up the discipline to save up about $2000 for a gun/guns. Help me think of some ways to spend it. I'm thinking either one SUPER nice gun or two nice guns. I'm not really interested in suggestions like "Buy a Mosin Nagant and spend the rest on ammo". I'm thinking something seriously unique and cool. But not something that will be too nice to shoot or something that shooting will hurt the collector value. Since my gun fund has never seen $2000 at one time, I'm not familiar with what the options are in that price range. So help me out here. Rifle and/or pistol!

    If I had $2K to dump right now, the first thing I'd go for is a Benelli M4 and more mags as well as a better sight for my Saiga .308. I'd be all set then!

    Nothing screams your criteria like a decent AR-10 with good glass and a nice stock and bipod. Then start slammin the 500 steel targets!

    Edit: after thinking about it, I wouldn't buy a Benelli. I really don't need a $1400 shotgun... I'd be jumping on the AR-10 bus...

    For the combination, how about a Ruger No.1 and a Colt 1911?

    Kriss Vector carbine with a few of their extended mags, and a sight.

    This gun is really cool.

    An AR-15 in 458 SOCOM with a Nikon 3x9x40 and a couple hundred rounds of ammo. Plus an OD Glock 20 if I could find one, and a couple hundred rounds for it. Unique enough and won't break the bank, plus I could use both for hunting.

    As far as spending 2 grand on guns, I would have to go with two er shaw mkVII rifles. One in matte stainless with a pepper stock in 17 fireball with a 22" barrel, the other in 8x57 mauser with a 22" matte stainless barrelled action in a nutmeg laminate stock, both would have helical fluting and wear leupold scopes.

    I would get a SAKO 85 Hunter in 30-06 with a Zeiss Conquest 3-9x40.

    That's always been my dream setup.

    Those Kriss Vectors are very cool looking. I have no idea what they cost, but is it possible to do a full auto and a short barrel for $2k?

    Is it possible to do any kind of other full auto for $2k or am I just dreaming?

    A bone stock kriss is about 1700, fully kitted out, an other 1k.

    4500 is about the low amount for full auto fun.

    Figured I was just dreaming on the full auto. But having one that's not full auto would seem like buying a new Camaro with a V-6. I'd want the muscle!

    I will keep looking I think.

    I must be misunderstanding something here. I thought that anything full auto from after 1986 was illegal, unless for military or police use.

    Unless, of course, you aren't from the U.S.

    You want to be able to look at it, handle it, shoot it, maybe re-sell it someday...

    Colt Python.

    I don't happen to own one at the moment, but I have owned one in the past. Held its value, shoots where it is supposed to, and you can re-sell it in a flash if you must. I had to. Stuff happens.

    Hmm... $2000.
    Well, honestly right now I'd buy an Orange Thunderverb 200W, but I'd still have to add about a grand (guitarists should know this).

    But for just gun stuff, I'd say the Saiga 7.62x39 I've been planning for a while. That would come to around $1200, so I'd have $800 left. With that I'd either build an AR or just get ammo for the rest of the toys.

    DMR fun: M1A with an optic and couple spare 20rd mags.

    Cowboy Set-Up: 2 New Vaqueros, Henry Big Boy and Stoeger Coach Gun.
