    I'm thinking about an AR-15, or an M1 Garand.... perhaps a week vacation with the woman.... or maybe a major upgrade to my computer.

    Anyone else buying guns? If not, what are your plans for tax refunds?

    I'm struggling with the thought of a S&W M327 snub nose. I really like it, but I can't rationalize its purchase.
    I like your idea of a vacation. Maybe I'll take my wife and the dogs and just get gone for a while.

    Be safe,
    Dave

    With my tax return I bought...

    Revolvers:
    .454casull Ruger Super Redhawk Alaskan / 2 1/4" (stainless) still on order
    .44mag Ruger Super Blackhawk Hunter / 7 1/2" (stainless)
    .357mag Ruger GP100 / 6" (stainless)
    .357mag Ruger SP101 / 2 1/4" (stainless)

    Pistols:
    .45acp Kimber Pro Carry II (stainless)
    9mm Taurus PT92 AFT (stainless)
    .32acp Beretta Tomcat (stainless)
    .22lr Ruger Mark II (stainless)

    Rifles:
    .45/70 Marlin 1895 GS (stainless)
    .30-.30 Marlin 336XLR (stainless)
    .30-.06 Ruger M77 MKII Sporter (stainless)

    and I bought a gunsafe.

    I kind of went nuts. I closed a business this year that was run from my home and the huge right off got me back a bigger return than I can ever expect to see again so I figured it was a once in a lifetime opportunity. here are all my purchases besides the last two rifles I picked up. The Taurus 65 and the NAA mini I already owned.

    Investments. The gummint isn't going to take care of you in your old age. Plan ahead or live in a box, that's my idea. :D

    Too many guns and so many wants (though can have only one) leaves me a bit confused. I'd really like to pick up a Kel Tec P3AT - "P-3-Eigh-ty". :)

    Another good grab would be a Savage chambered for .300 Win Mag. It's tough to beat the price and out of box accuracy of any Savage.

    Any way it's sliced, my purchase (including tax) must stay below $600.

    I'm debating on another P220 or maybe adding a P228 or P226 to the lineup. Already on layaway is a Mossberg 590 as well. Aside from that, probably a few more Benchmade knives, ammo, mags and other stuff. And a new set of tires. I also like to save a little as well.

    Holy Crap Penguin!

    All that with ONE refund? No "kind of" about it! ;)

    And where do you get off buying everything on my gun wish list -huh?!

    Seriously, lacking only an AK and a kel-tec Sub-2000, your collection would almost mirror mine, if I could afford it. Oh, and instead of the Taurus, I'd get the new XD-45. Hmmm, or - better yet, in-addition to the Taurus... :D

    So, ok, not exactly a mirror of my wish list, but close enough.

    Oh well, If I can't have them, someone should.

    BTW, let's see picks of the stainless Marlins!

    Speaking of stainless lever-actions, this is my favorite: Alaskan Co-Pilot

    I am not much one for the more military looking weapons. I prefer them to be pretty and shiny. :) The Taurus is actually a gun I have had for many years now. It was something from a time in my life when I was struggling financially and had to scrimp and save to buy. I love seeing how peoples taste in firearms mirror or contrast one anothers. Here is a pic of the two stainless Marlins.

    PP, what's the lever gun under the self-portrait?

    (Yeah, Marlin. Got that part.
    My last one was a 336 in .35.
    Miss that gun so much....)

    Nice. Super nice.

    Shiny Guns.

    I tend to prefer stainless firearms myself, just not becuase they're "shiny", but becuase they are more, well, stainless. :) However, I'm also drawn to the "Dark Side" of "scary-looking" weapons, such as the AK, or the XD. Neither of them would look right in SS.

    At a recent gun show, I actually saw a gold-plated (don't know if it was real gold) mac-10, labeled as an "Army commemorative". It was quite shiny. And pretty... as it pretty funny!

    I put most of it in savings, but I did buy myself a Gemtech Outback II :D Now if the F3 transfer from gemtech to my dealer would hurry up so I can start the transfer to me I will be a little happier.

    It is sitting in a savings account right now. I need a new computer and am thinking that something built around the AMD 64 FX 60 processor, 2 graphics accelerators, and 2 GB of RAM will do quite nicely. I am waiting for prices to come down before I make my purchase.

    On the gun front, I would like something in .375 H&H. I am leaning towards the CZ 550, but who knows.

    Worth every penny, Houndawg! Just be aware that it could effect your night vision under certain circumstances. Otherwise it's a good investment. I myself was sick and tired of watching my glasses fog up every time I hit the prone, including at the range for qualification.

    With the kind of money I'm expecting from my tax return, I'm planning on getting a few boxes of .357 Sig JHP.

    I had to read the thread title three times......

    I kept thinking it read, "What Are You BURYING With Your Tax Refund?"



    hmmm...that would make for a great separate thread...."Which Gun to Bury Before The Stasi Come A Knockin?"

    Hope you don't get audited and have to make a pay-back. I don't think the IRS accepts firearms.
