    A V3 AutoThrow and AutoTrickler, and the balance on reloading components.

    Hi...
    I am at the point in my life where I don't "need" any more firearms, but I still want quite a few.
    Nothing really interests me anymore other than single action revolvers, lever action and bolt action rifles or maybe a good Browning 12ga autoloader.
    I have a few things I need to acquire to get my Dillon 550 up and running...caliber conversion kits and die sets.

    If 1K were to magically land in my bank account, I would probably do what I do most weekends...do a gun shop tour with my son and search for a firearm in one of the above referenced categories.
    No guarantee I wouldn't get led astray by something else that I stumbled across. I have a bad habit of making impulse buys regarding firearms.

    Ironically enough if $1000 bucks dropped out of the sky and it came with a contract I had to sign that it had to be spent on a gun I’d get a BCM 16” inch LW with an MLOK rail.

    I have another BCM that’s a 20” inch that I really like, but I don’t have a 16”.

    I would seriously look at a Dan Wesson DWX which is a CZ / 1911 hybrid with a 1911 trigger. I have never actually seen one so I can't say I would buy it for sure.
    If the DWX doesn't suite me I would get a double stack 9mm 1911. I shoot my .45 1911's better than any of my other guns. I would like the same handling in a 9mm.
    I do not own a semi auto .223 but I don't really care for AR's. I would look at a stainless Mini 14, Sig MPX or Tavor X95... if I get a .223 semi I want something that can be stored in a pretty compact space in the truck. A folding Mini 14, MPX or the bull pup Tavor have a lot of appeal to me. I have a bolt action .223 for target shooting.
    An FN.49 has been on my list for a very long time. I would love a 30-06 but would be happy with a 8mm.
    A Rasheed in 7.62 x 39. I love the way the action functions on my Sweedish AG42 Ljungman and Hakim... the Rasheed is another one that has been on my list for a very long time.
    FN-AR is another rifle I would love to have but I would get one of the two above classics first.

    I've been wanting a Kimber K6 for carry, so I'd blow the money on one of those and a holster. If there's anything left over it'd go to some .357 or .224 projectiles for reloading.

    I actually have a small bonus coming up in March. My wife and I decided most of it's going straight to savings, but I'm thinking of siphoning off about 10% and getting a Taurus PT 92 that a local pawn shop's had for awhile.

    I have one more week at my current job. I’m moving to another where I will be in management meaning increase in salary, annual bonus, etc. I’m glad that some of us have some bright spots in our immediate futures.

    I'll probably have to settle on ammunition. Unfortunately everything nice, seems to be out of reach for a thousand dollar budget....even the optics and reloading equipment is up there. Won't be long before a pizza will run $50.

    I'm good on firearms for now, nothing really calling my name.

    I'm in the ammo/accessories pool. I could use a red dot, something in the range of Primary or Holosun most likely. The rest would go to a mix of reloading components, 22 ammo and maybe a magazine or three.

    My next one will be an Armscor VR80, which will be about a K after accessories and break-in ammo.

    I want a DW DWX, but that's more like $1600.

    If that is true I need another 1k... I want a cz 527 in 221 rem fireball. I am looking into building one since every time I find an original it is 1500 or more. They originally sold for 499 back around 2003 and the 223 rifle can be had at times for 500 or so. Just got to decide what stock style I want more... And find 1k that isn't nailed down...
