    I'd use it to move out of CA so you can really buy some guns

    A Sig X6 comes to mind as does an early Sig P210. A S&W model 16-4 also comes to mind along with a nighthawk.

    I think I'd go with a Steyr Scout, a Leupold scout scope, and some 308 to put through it.

    Absolutely but the 7.62x51 is now $3300+. This would be my choice. I think The Predator model is $500 less and almost 2 pounds lighter but still with that LaRue excellence.

    $3K will get you a nice mid-range Beretta or Browning O/U. They make much more expensive guns, though I'm not entirely sure what that extra expense really gets you.

    For 3k you should be able to find a Beretta 682 Gold E sporting, or a 682 Gold Sporting. The Gold is an older model but I prefer it to the Gold E. The Gold E's are over $4k now new in the box. I believe Beretta is ending the 682 line and coming out with the 692 series. I'm not sure what all has been changed.

    Berettas fit me much better than the Brownings - try both. Look at Pacific Sporting Arms website for ideas. The 682s are mechanically the same as the 686's and 687's but are a bit heavier which is what you want in a competition gun. I've seen use 682 golds with subgauge tubes in the 3k range so they are available.

    Uh...guys...DumasRon dug this thread up from a deep November 30th grave if you hadn't noticed.. If the OP hasn't spent that $3000 by now, it is only worth about half in guns what it was several months ago....now it may just buy a Stag AR-15.

    Nephew spent money on other things so still waiting for him to save it up again for the car. I was 99 percent certain was sold. I do see the humor in the ar jokes re prices. My preferences are for blued firearms and walnut stocks. Still heavily leaning towards a sxs or ou shotgun for shooting clays. Doubt I will do better at it than I do with my Mossberg 500.

    Just for the lol'z I still want to suppress a shotgun -- even if it's eight feet long. :D

    Next splurge will however be a suppressed three hundred blackout setup either on an existing rifle or a new rifle (if prices ever come back down).

    That was the plan several years ago. However, I ended up putting a scout scope on a 30-30 lever action with a 16.75" barrel. I fell in love with this setup to the point that the Styer scout is no longer necessary. I can't argue that a 308 is balistically better but if my 30-30 isnt enough In those cases I have a 30-06 or a 45-70.

    A Colt revolver or an English double shotgun will hold their value and be a source of joy forever.
