    Generally, I crave guns with prancing ponies on them.

    Specifically, I want Snakes.

    A safe... Would really like something in 10mm. And then the wife's LCP makes me want a P238. Or even better a 700 5-r, but could not afford a scope

    currently I am afflicted with a desire to own a Colt 1911 Gold Cup....... saw a regular Colt 1911 at my local shop and liked it. Looked into it a little more and decided I'd rather have the Gold Cup. So my radar is on passive mode currently as i browse different online forum classifieds and visit other shops. No luck so far, but I did come across a nice used Ithaca model 37 12 guage($125). Gonna pick it up, have the front sight replaced and get it reblued. Will make a nice early Christmas gift for my nephew to hunt with this fall.

    And last but not least I would really like to find a Hammerli Virginian Dragoon in 357 mag. Can't seem to locate one anywhere.

    Not bugged to the degree of being obsessed, but right now, I'm eying the Ruger SR45 and the SIG P227 Carry SAS 2B.

    Most gun bugs come and go for me, and that's how I know they're bugs. The ones that are persistent are the ones I consider real needs:

    Latest bugs: bolt rifle in .338 WinMag, semi-auto 12ga, steel-framed pistol in 40S&W, 4" revolver in .357Mag, Glock 31 barrel

    Real needs: pocket-carry .380 or 9mm, AR in .223/5.56 with an added 300 Blackout upper (ok, that last one is a bug)

    Suppressors and tax stamps to make some SBRs. I also really want to get to a good training course soon, I wouldn't mind a carbine one, but I think I'm due for a pistol one.

    You must have a HUGE collection. I know a guy with a personal firearms collection numbering in the thousands. Not even he has every gun I would want to own, let alone could dream of.

    1911 kick. Have a bad, bad hankering for a Dan Wesson VBOB right now, and I want to send my Lightweight Champion Operator back to the SA Custom Shop for some work.

    Sheesh.

    At the moment just this:

    1. 30/30 lever action
    2. Better "assault rifle" which takes 5.56nato (I have an ar180b).

    I need to get serious about selling off my excess from when I was collecting like mad 15 years ago.

    Been reading quite a bit abou the new .17 that Winchester/Savage is going to release this year. It's the .17 SuperMagnum. Pushing 20 & 25 grain pills at 2600 and 3000 FPS, respectively. I guess it's based on the .27 shell that Winchester makes for construction guns. I'm 1st on the list to get one at a local shoppe.

    Even before things got crazy, I was seriously looking for a few items,
    A R-25 in .243 AND a .357 Desert Eagle

    I may still be able to find the Eagle ,but the R-25 is worth gold according to anybody selling one anyway.....

    As with many in the past - firearms I have "backed into" with no previous desire to own have pushed me in a new direction of interest.

    A converted (.45ACP/.45AR) Mak VI Enfield and a Llama .38 Super.

    I'd been dodging ever opening the Colt .38 Super conversion that came with my 9x23 1911 but after shooting the Llama, I might give it a go in the Colt now as well.

    Semi-auto version of a battle rifle - something is .308 / 7.62 x 51. Not a good time for that is it? I kind of feel I need one, not sure what I want, just feel a need for one.

    I'm also feeling the full auto version, but that's another story.

    I have the window-shopping bug, because I'm poor.

    I'm thinking, in the future, an SP101 in .327 magnum.

    .45 ACP. Not a 1911. I was looking at a nice Sig P220, then the Glock 30, then the Glock 36, then I just heard about the soon to be released Glock 30S...now I really want one.

    I also just read a good review of the Sig ACP, and I really want one for my G34 !!!

    I like that others noticed that sometimes it's just a bug, other times it's a genuine need. Usually, it's a bug.

    My bugs:

    A really nice 1911

    A pistol caliber carbine

    A Remington pump-action rifle in .308 or .30-06

    A nice old drilling

    I do need a Glock 23 (GenIII) then the bug is a .357Sig barrel

    Chopping the long full choke barrel on my 870

    Getting into reloading

    I need AMMO! I'm out of range-safe 5.56 & .50 Beowulf, and I'm not as stocked as I'd like to be in .45-70, .45LC, 12 bore 00 Buck, .410 bore 3" 000 Buck, and range-safe 7.62x39 & 54R (local indoor range says no steel case or steel core).

    Wanting to build up a what the M40 basic sniper rifle would have been had it had the Winchester Model 70 Action. So basically a M70, with a target barrel, hoping that maybe they will release another Stealth model as a Shot Show Special, if not I may be looking to pick up a cheap Ultimate Shadow model and re-barrell it. Get a McMillan stock, 1913 rail to mount some expensive scope on maybe a Nightforce or Huskemaw, and a nice Harris bipod, all in 7.62 NATO / .308 to keep ammo costs lower and not burn through barrels as a 'practice' rifle.

    That and I'm also toying with the idea of a 80% AR15. We'll see when they get out of backorder though!

    I have been trying to get my rifles topped with practical, handsome, classic looking scopes, without breaking the bank:

    I'm all but done with outfitting my AR. A set of back up iron sights, canted to 45 degrees left, is the last thing on my list aside from mags and ammo.

    Other than that, I'm itching for a .22 semi auto pistol, and a left handed .30-06 bolt action.

    The .22 I've kicked around for so long and have put off due to indecision on which one I want to get, but that left handed bolt action has been in my head for awhile. I've contemplated selling my M-44, ammo and accessories to help fund it.
