    Ok, so I have a good shooting .22, a S&W .357 mag, a Remington 1100 limited edition, a Marlin 30-30, and I just got a Dragunov, and I'm already wanting another so what's next? I like having unique and different guns that no one else has, I also like military guns and I like to shoot them not just one to hang on the wall. I've considered getting a Beretta m9 or an AR-15 but I really have no idea what I want, so give me some suggestions.

    If you want something fun to shoot for cheap you might want to look into an SKS. A store around my area just had a buy 3 for 99 dollars each and get the 4th free. Ammo is usually 4.99 or so for 20 around here. This wont fit into your "different" category as most everyone I know has an SKS that thy plink with or hunt with.

    mcb611 - you might want to look into a good centerfire bolt action, esp. one that will give you some longer distances over the Dragunov and the .30-30.
    If yo're looking for a hunting rifle, determine your primary target first. Small game and varmits - .22-250 up to a .243. Larger varmits (coyotes) to deer - .25-06 to .270.
    Deer, wild/feral hogs, and larger - .270 throught the 30's (.30-06, .338, etc.).
    Have fun deciding!

    You could always get a CZ75. 9mm, 4.7 inch barrel, well rated, inexpensive.

    The Beretta is also a great choice.

    If you have any inkling that they might be a bit harder to find in a future we would rather not envision - get the AR now.

    Otherwise I also agree with the SKS or AK varients,fun and cheap to shoot.

    A friend and I just bought a couple of AK-74's only due to the CHEAP ammo.

    It was [ a few months back ] THE cheapest centerfire ammo to buy so we did :p,buy a 'few' rounds to play with.

    BTW the rifle shoots well and is very simular to the US military 5.56,the AK-74 is in 5.45 X 39 as compared to the US 5.56 X 45.

    How about your next three gun aquisitions? M1911, AR-15, M1 Garand; in whatever order you prefer.

    Get a Uberti London Navy 1851, .36 percussion revolver.

    It's military, (one of the most common Civil War handguns), the London model is steel frame rather than brass frame for durability, and when you go to the range, no one else will have one. Unless you are at a cowboy action shoot.

    You have some great smokeless powder guns. It's time to stretch yourself in another direction. Blackpowder guns are fun!

    And you can order one through the mail without having to go through an FFL.

    Tokarev pistol (dirt cheap ammo), FN FAL, Mosin Nagant (cheap rifle, cheap ammo).

    By the way, that SKS for $99 is a great deal; they are somewhere around $300 from the online vendors.

    MCB611;

    Just what is your "good shooting .22"? You might want to give thought to obtaining the companion rifle or handgun. If the rifle is what you're lacking, then at least consider the CZ452, it's outstanding. If it's the pistol you don't have, there's several on the market that are great.

    But, if you like the mil-surps & want a winner, getcherself a Swede. Almost all are capable of world-class accuracy at any reasonable range. Great sights, low recoil, and first-class manufacturing are all there. The cartridge itself is a sweetheart to reload.

    It looks like you lack an autoloader pistol, so I'll suggest a 1911. Lots of fun to shoot and an all-time military classic.

    You don't want a gun at all. You want to start reloading for the guns you already own!

    Definitely sounds like you need to add an auto pistol to your collection. The Ruger P series are great guns for their price and a lot of fun to shoot. The P-90 is a great way to get into .45 ACP if you don't want to mess with a 1911.

    I agree you need an auto pistol. I was of the "every collection needs a 1911" crowd, until I owned one for a while. It was a good gun, but never really lit me up. Turns out I'm happier with a Glock. Anyway, 1911, Beretta 92 variant, or if you like a little different, Browning Hi-Power.

    I think you also need a good bolt action in either .308 or .30-06. And if you like shootable milsurps, look at an Ishapore Enfield (.308) or a 1903a3 (.30-06).
