    I'm looking for a deal on a three or four inch M657, or a short-barreled nickel M57.

    I might pick up another shotgun too. A Winchester 97 would be nice.

    And if I can find the resources, a nice Kel Tec SU-16.

    Let's just make this guns overall, since I have quite a few now and am looking for only a few more to come full circle.

    Right now I have (in order of purchase) a Henry lever action 22 LR, Colt HBAR 223, Remington 870, Remington 597 22 mag, Taurus 66 357 mag, and Liberty II 12 gauge. Next is some sort of pocket pistol (still searching). Eventually I want tupperware in a pistol (Glock or Sig). After that I do not know what I want until the time gets closer.

    For 2005.

    A SA 1911A1 that I can customize.

    Honestly, I think that I've come to the end of my gun buying. I need to look at the few that I have and give them updates.

    But you have to realize, I have fewer then Tam but more then AM (sorry AM, your a friend and I had to make at point). I have a C&R and will most likely get are few more rifles (did I mention, I don't like rifles and I have more then I really want, including an entire set of SKS rifles :( ).

    For my list for next year:

    Ammo, and more ammo, and then some ammo to keep the original ammo happy.

    FM Hi-power, may or may not get chromed and get a pair of pimp grips (ivory or pearl) as well as the gold trigger and the gold hammer. I believe that every man should have a pimp gun.

    Night sights for the HK. She/It should have a pair.

    A .32 cylinder for the Nagant. I've yet to fire that pistol :(.

    A real safe. Not a homark or a sentrey but a real safe. With what I have, maybe two real safes, depends on how well I can pack things.

    HK USP .45 12 round mags, if my gun store can get them.

    Just to round out the (small) collection:
    A pump shotgun
    Something black and .308
    And if I win the lottery, a FN 5.7.
    Oh, and ammoammoammoammoammoammoammoammo

    1. Lots of ammo....then more ammo
    2. DSA Fal or JLD PTR91
    3. HK USP.45


    If the opportunity presents itself:

    1. Snubby hammerless revolver
    2. Mosin Nagant rifle
    3. A rack grade CMP Garand to keep my SA Garand company

    Don't get me started. I'm actually in a pretty good place with regards to the "gotta have its". This is a really good thing, as I'm just not currently able to finance squat for the gun cabinent.

    1. EBR with as many evil features as possible. (16" threaded barrel, flash hider, accessory rail with forward grip, collapsible stock, bayonet lug, Beta-C mag . . . )

    2. Lightweight J-frame .357 or .38 +P

    Listed in order desired:

    1938 Tula PEM Sniper

    1916 Tula "Peter the Great" M91 (Have a line on one)

    1916 Izhevsk M91

    1916 M95 Nagant revolver (No I was not born in 1916, nor am I that much into WWI. One of my first Mosins was a 1916 Sestroryetsk, which is the harder of the three Russian arsenals to find. And I have a 1916 BSA No. 1 MkIII SMLE.)
    AMD-65 (Currently in process)

    Makarov

    K98k or M48

    Some sort of 9mm pistol, to go with my Kel-Tec (Not S&W, even though that's what the grip frame is.) Probably an XD.

    .50 BMG something!

    AK-74 build

    Romak-3 build

    .223 Handi-Rifle

    Kel-Tec SU-16

    More Mosins! :D

    Of course, what I'll end up with is:

    about 6 or seven more M38's and M44's, and a Makarov. :rolleyes:

    Not in any particular order:

    DSA FAL
    Marlin 45/70 Guide Gun
    Bushmaster
    G20
    KAHR K40
    2nd S&W 649
    2nd HK USP Compact .45

    (sigh)


    Just wishful thinking. Susan's medical bills have us in debt up to our eyebrows, so none of it is likely to happen (and I feel a little guilty wanting what's on that list, but. . .).

    Will be picking up an FN Five-seveN in the next couple weeks.

    Then I am going to start scouring the world for Lee-Enfields with my freshly minted C&R license (hopefully I'll have it by the end of January).

    Well

    First thing I need to get, so we can start practicing, is a matched set of blackpowder rifles. The wife wants to try black powder for elk this year, so we have to get the guns if she wants to prove to me shes ready.

    After that, I have a pretty huge hole in my collection. Since trading away my SP-101 I have NO .357 revolver. I want to fix this soon.

    I would like to get an EBR, but as long as the political climate stays like it is, that keeps moving down the list of priorities. It would help if my Marlin lever-action .357 wasn't so much fun and so accurate. Out to about 100 yards, I'm not sure there is anything I can do with my Marlin that I could actually do better with an AR.

    Other than that, I am really more interested in accesories this year. Maybe making some modifications to my Saiga to make it more of an EBR, new grips for some of my guns. And, I want to start reloading. For Christmas, I had my wife get me The ABC's of Reloading, so I can start learning.

    Guns I want? Here's a quick list:

    .300 WSM built by GA Precision with a Nightforce NXS on top

    Rock River AR15

    A couple of spare SKS's

    Mauser 6.5X55

    Finish building my 10/22


    What will I get? Well, I'm planning on finishing the 10/22. :rolleyes: Who knows what the new year will bring, though? Who knows, maybe a fabulously rich relative :scrutiny: that I've never met will leave me a fortune, or I'll win the Powerball lottery. Unfortunately, my family tree needs water, and I don't buy lottery tickets. But hey, I can hope! :neener:

    Gonna finish my AR (need a barrel and the specialty tools to assemble it). Other than that, I have no concrete plans. I'll probably spend gun money on reloading supplies and accessories for guns I already have.

    Rem 37 .22 target rifle - in process
    S.A. 1911 9mm - in process
    Browning Bushmark Target
    Sig Trailside

    Steyr M9
    unsingle barrel for my SKB 885​

    Time to win the Lotto!!

    870 Express (plan to turkey hunt this year)
