    Front-stuffer. Muzzleloading guns are a lot of fun at a slower pace

    A howitzer and a mousegun.


    Get the howitzer first. Mice guns are everywhere and fairly cheap...

    You've got hunting covered 7X over, smaller game and plinking is equally well covered, if you just want an excuse, that's different, I'd say a lighter recoiling bolt gun than .308, but with more oomph than .223 might be in order, IDK if you handload, but if not, it's high time you did! Time for reloading equipment if not already on hand, components, and a 6mm, .25, 6.5, 6.8, or 7mm chambering I think.....

    For small game, a nice, lithe 28 gauge - either SxS or O/U will make the hunt that much more enjoyable........

    Based on my own desires my wants after having what you have would be the following:

    .22lr revolver (Ruger GP100 .22lr, S&W 617, Ruger Single Six)
    .22lr lever (Winchester 9422, Marlin 39, or Uberti Silverboy)
    7.62x39 (CZ 527 / Ruger American bolt) and/or AR15 in 7.62x39 "AR47"

    Other than that you look like you have similar interests, I enjoy cheap ammo shooters.

    Came here to post M1 Garand.

    If you don't think you need one, you are wrong.

    If you don't think you want one, you are lying to yourself... and still wrong.

    1911

    Pistol Caliber Carbine in 9mm

    Another AR, which you will configure differently than your current one.

    A snub noses revolver

    You do not need anything else. What do YOU want on your budget?

    West Kentucky nailed it. Get an 1851 Navy .36 and get ready for fun. But get on the Blackpowder Forum first, so you do things right. Blackpowder guns aren’t hard, just different.

    If having fun is one of your needs, then you need a blackpowder rifle or two...Say, one caplock and one inline...After that, I'd suggest a flintlock...

    I'm with a Glockula and Horsey... A quarter bore or other similar bolt action medial between .223 and .30. I know because I was in your shoes exactly, when it came to rifles, then I got a 7mm-08 and it is filled a hole in my heart I didn't know existed! :D

    Wow...I have a new slogan. :D

    I agree a nice shooting 1911 should be on the list. Think about some of the other famous semi-auto's, too. CZ 75...or even better, a P-01 or P-06. A Browning Hi Power would be a good, 9mm, too.

    The OP's only real "need" isn't a need at all, but a venture into "collectible" guns, and the best and easiest way to do that is with vintage S&W revolvers. K frames and J frames are the most affordable, if you stick with .38 Special. If you go to N frames or go to .22 rimfire, you start spending noticeably more, but all are worth collecting. Almost a guaranteed value appreciation, as old S&W's are so low priced when compared to vintage Colt revolvers.

    How about the new integrated Suppressed Muzzleloader. https://bearingarms.com/tom-k/2017/...uces-50-state-legal-suppressed-muzzle-loader/ https://silencerco.com/maxim50/

    For those into black knighting, double points if you have hoplophobics as friends or family because you can explain to them that A) it is not a firearm covered by the ATF regulations, and B) it has the evil suppressor technology built in. [sarc/on] Obviously gangbangers will be lining up to buy them for drive by shootings and terrorists will flock to these .50 caliber menaces [sarc/off].

    A membership to the gun of the month club so you can catch up to a majority of us.:thumbup: Seriously, I have purchased a firearm or two and reloading gear for them because I have found a couple handfulls of matching caliber fired brass that needed to be put to use.;) I am more of an accumulator than a collector.
