    Either an S&W 327 TRR8 or an S&W M&P R8 or an S&W 627 Pro. I haven’t chosen which one yet. o_O

    With a little extra cash I would get a new SIG P210.

    Repairs for the wife's Jeep. I wish that was a smartass comment, but it's reality. I'd been putting money aside for a retro AR build and was about to start ordering parts when the wife's Jeep broke down.

    Sigh....

    Oh WOW!

    A Jeep and guns makes me remember one of my favorite combat TV series...The Rat Patrol. I fell in love with the Jeep and Ma Duece blazing away as it crested a sand dune.

    But 1k will not forfilled that fantasy .

    Just did this a couple weeks ago. Bought a new PCC in .357 Magnum/.38 Special. No extra magazines needed. :cool:

    Ooooo! Look at you with the fancy schmancy taste!

    So how much does a vintage Sherman tank cost?

    LOL

    But it would buy you the Rat Patrol complete series on DVD or Blu Ray and then you could go gun shopping!

    Make that 5K and I'll go for a civilian model of one of these.

    Now I'm trying to decide whether it's worth the extra $70 for BFH or Standard.

    The standard enhanced LW upper is $598. The BFH enhanced LW is about $674.

    I'm probably just going to pony up the extra for the upgrade, it's worth it not to have to second guess it.

    I'd like to think I'd splurge on something fun, like a BHP, but I'd probably talk myself out of it and wind up buying more mags or ammo. (As I mentioned in a similar thread.)

    My next 2 guns (and probably last ones) will be a Baretta 92 Elite LTT and a Sig 229 Legion, both in 9mm. I'd put the $1000 toward the Sig.

    I'd seriously consider another upper for my AR15 if I had an extra grand

    Yep, I've always wanted a 45-70 and/or a .44 mag lever gun. I was at a gun show yesterday and one table had a Marlin 45-70 and Marlin .44 mag lever gun right next to each other. Both were priced $800 (used of course).
