    Hello members, earlier I asked the same question, only it was a C note.
    http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?s=&threadid=30531

    Now you have ten crisp C notes, and of course don't worry about the taxes.:D Same deal as before, What do you buy?

    I had already planned on this second thread even before I read S_O_Laban
    .

    I am not surprised by the other threads' replies, and I really don't expect to be surprised on this one. I had/have a reason.

    Again-Have Fun! :D

    I'd tell my H&K monger to order me a P2000 as soon as it hit the market. Any money left over would be spent on 10 rounders and 9mm ammo..;)

    A Walther P-38K or a P5C.....but a grand won't buy both...or often even one of them. The last P-38K I saw for sale was $1,700.

    Okay, a cool 1k. Truth is I just saw yesterday a LNIB Colt Annaconda from quite a few years back. This gun has been sitting in an older Gentlemans personel collection for quite a few years. The gun was purchased with the intent of going to his son in the years to come but never came about because his son never took interest. As a result this Gentleman had the local dealer buy out all the guns (many ) he had purchased for this purpose. I don't really need a Colt Annaconda but hey somebody just handed me a grand right:D Truth is that just happens to be the flavor of the week for me. Ask me next week and you'll probably get a different anwser.



    edited to add: the asking price on the above gun was only 875:D

    I'd buy a Ruger Red Label in 28 gauge. With the few bucks left I'd get some 28 gauge ammo.

    If no Ruger 28 gauge was available I'd look for a long-barrelled Smith 657 and a nickeled M57. Those would fill out my collection of .41 Magnums nicely.

    I'll try and go for a two fer deal with something on my wish list. An IZH-27 stack-barrel and a Lyman Great Plains Hunter, or an 1895 Marlin. Either combo should put me at about $1000. Mebbe I can talk my pet gun dealer down on the price and get a box of famfire ammo for each thrown in.:D

    reloading consumables. A progressive press. A serious rifle, and ammo for same.

    Instruction. Most classes tend to be expensive and far away, and 1K FRN would certainly help with that.

    oh, here and there...
    i think the msrp is a bit higher, but here's hoping i could get a ds arms fal for a cool grand!

    or perhaps a beretta 391 semiautomatic shotgun and the leftover cash for cartridges. quite possibly the softest shooting shotgun i know of. with light target loads, it would make a great addition to introduce new shooters to shotgun sports and i would enjoy it greatly as well.

    decisions decisions....

    Now I get an HK P7M8, or a really nice 28-gauge stack barrel shotgun.

    I second the vote for a DS Arms FAL. Their STG-58 carbine.

    I would do that in a heartbeat if I had another $1000 in my pocket right now.

    A really, really well-kept GI 1911, "grandpa's pistol from the war" kind of thing. And/or another (again, well-kept) M1 Carbine. Maybe a Garand. After the firearm is picked out, probably ammo and cleaning supplies with what's left.

    This is, of course, assuming that I'd already spent the $100 from the first thread. :D
