    Personally, if someone thrust $600 into my hand and said "I want you buy a new gun, any new gun" - it would probably be a CZ 527 in something like .22 Hornet, or perhaps 7.62x39.

    hmm $600 in my hands I would surf the net and do a lil shopping at dealers cost from some friends of mine and get maybe 4 or 5 old military sks's or a few saiga's I like quantity more than quality I buy cheap and repair broken guns and things like that. Ebay parts kits guns people played with and tried to mod and turned out wrong. The most expensive gun I have would be an fully tricked out sks with about $900 in it all together just to show off to some friends (and make a lil noise)

    Plenty of nifty guns for $600 or less.

    • Vector Arms underfolder AK47 clone
    • CZ P-01
    • Glock 19 (meh, maybe)
    • Kahr K40
    • Ruger PC9GR
    • Springfield XD-9
    • Steyr M9
    • Walther P99
    • Marlin 1895/1895G
    • Plenty of Ruger single action revolvers to choose from
    • Older S&W revolvers, stylish yet deadly :cool:
    The list goes on and on.

    LAK, I just got the CZ 527 in 7.62x39. I think it's great, I just hope it shoots as good as it looks and feels.

    That XD-45acp is one hell of a package. Looks like there isn't any need for the 45gap here in the USA anymore:D

    Glock-20 and Gock-36
    Sigarms P220 or P226 (CPO)
    Ruger PC-9 carbine
    Semi-auto SBR Uzi
    Springfield Armory XD-45acp and Mil-Spec
    Remington 870 Express

    The list goes on;)

    I think you need to resist the money burning a hole in your pocket until you get a clear idea of what you want a gun FOR. It might take long enough that you would be able to save up more money and get something nicer that would fill a real purpose.

    Dunham's near me has a sale once in a great while, $100 off any Armalite Rifle. That brings the cost of a brand new AR-180b down to $600 plus tax :rolleyes:

    +1 for the CZ P-01

    At a gun show, 600 will get you the gun, plus you'll still have cash left over for range ammo and a bottle of Tequila for the end of the night. :D

    Or go the Sig route if you don't like the CZ (a lot of people don't like the lack of readily available CZ gear).

    Great! No one beat me to it, here goes:

    Get yourself a Rock Island Armory 1911 .45acp!

    With the money you save over buying the other suggested pieces of firearms, get a progressive reloading machine...only way you can enjoy shooting a lot! Unless you just won the lottery...then I'll have to bill you for the advice!!! :)

    Honestly, I was shocked at the lack of 1911 replies.

    i left out details on purpose, i was more curious as to what others would buy with the same amount.

    there isn't anything i drastically need, but there's a few things i want, and a few things i'm considering.

    Actually, I kind of liked the fact that the recommendations weren't all 1911. :neener:

    A CZ75 is also a good recommendation.
