    Hey all I've been reading this forum for some time and need some help.
    I'm itching for a new purchase but can't figure out what to get next and need some suggestions on what to get next.
    I currently own the following:

    rra ar-15 m4orgery
    remington 870
    xd-m .40
    wasr-10

    I'm totally drawing a blank on what else would be a good addition in both a shtf situation or a damn fine day at the range. Any help would be appreciated

    Some kind of .22 for sure. Grenade launcher. Can never have too many RPGs. Barrett 82a1 and a Howitzer if feasible.

    There's no mandatory quota system.

    If you don't know what you want to buy then it's not time to purchase.

    You have a list here. Tape it to the wall and toss a dart at it.

    :D

    +1 for the .22!
    you can get a pistol and rifle in the same caliber which is always handy.
    Any good lever gun or semi-auto in .22 can lay down some serious firepower and is relatively cheap... plus loads of fun to shoot!

    9MM for cheap practice/fun.

    .22 for really cheap practice/fun.

    .357, just because.

    1911 .45, because everyone should have one.

    Ammo

    More Ammo :)

    Just go for a Tank. :D

    Ok I see paranoia yes I'm new. We were all new once. I enjoy my membership to the range and love shooting sports from 5 stand, skeet, trap, to rifle and pistol. So if a new person has a question about recommendations on what to further my enjoyment more, let me hear them
    So the consensus seems like a .22, 9mm, and a .45. any recommendations on make and model?

    Springfield Fully Loaded .45
    Ruger GP-100
    30-06 or .270

    And, of course, a .22 like others have recommended.

    There, I feel better now that I spent a bunch of your money :D

    Have fun!

    Well, IMO the Ruger 10/22 would be an excellant choice. Lots of fun to be had with a .22LR, and about the most economical practice you can do.

    1. 22lr pistol
    2. 22lr rifle
    3. magnum revolver, preferably smith
    4. bolt action long range gun, savage will do, but get a decent scope.
    5. a grill or a BBQ pit, so we can all crowd around and eat food and compare notes.
