    Do you have a gun or list of guns that you are either aiming to buy soon or else dreaming over / saving up for?

    Here's mine:

    -LMT 308 MWS, with an ACOG TA648 (the big fat 6x one) residing up top. Would be an awesome toy, mean woods rifle for deer, etc.

    -Colt 6720 or other lightweight AR carbine. Throw an Aimpoint up top and be done with it. Great for HD or blasting.

    -A decent AK in 7.62x39, traditional furniture, nothing fancy

    -7mm Remington Magnum bolt gun. I've always been intrigued by the performance of this catridge. Ideally this would be a high-performance precision rifle from a custom shop. This one is a pipe dream right now.

    -FN SCAR 17S. Another pipe dream due to cost, but I can't think of a more capable combat rifle.

    -A tacticool .22LR, just for kicks

    -H&K HK45. Gotta love a big, tough .45ACP combat pistol. FNP-45 would be a good substitute.

    -A really nice 1911.

    -Mauser 98k

    -M1 Garand

    -A decent FN FAL. Looks really fun.

    -A good shotgun for busting clays. A nice over/under would be ideal, but a good gas gun is a nice substitute.

    -FN FS2000. Wacky space gun that also manages to be an excellet fighting rifle.

    I try to keep my drooling list small, like 1.

    I rented a beretta 92fs the other day at the range for fun. It was absolutely fun as heck to shoot. I would not mind owning one.

    Ohio Ordnance 1918A3, or the blued version.

    No 'good' reason.

    Also thinking of a supressor for a .22

    I saw the video for the upcoming Keltec shotgun and that seems pretty neat.
    Not exactly drooling but I'd like one for sure.

    Far too many for my pocket book these days.

    Keltec KSG shotgun

    Keltec PMR 30

    GSG 1911-22

    GSG 522

    Ruger single six with .22LR and WMR cylinders
    Except for the shotgun, pretty much all just for fun. The shotgun's funn too, but that's not all I want it for.

    I'm back in school now, so I won't be able to afford any of these for a couple of years. But anyway, I'm currently drooling over:

    -3 inch SP101 357
    -Marlin 336 in 30 30
    -LCR 357

    O yeah those are in order of droolness too.

    For me it's a TVM early Lancaster .54X38" flint I'm almost ready to have built. I've been hunting exclusively with flintlocks for some years, now. This will be my "ultimate" rifle.

    I was drooling over the P-238 and the ruger LCR, so I caved in and picked them both up.

    I've been seriously considering getting into full auto next year. With my tax return and some company stock I plan on selling I'll have around $8000 or so. I've been looking at various Macs, they seem to be the most affordable of the transferable FA guns.

    • Glock 26 to match my 19.
    • Get rid of my extra g19 because I'm not even sure of why I have it?!
    • Make something useful out of this pile of AR parts I've acquired
    • Spike's tactical upper with rails (I don't own anything with an m4 profile barrel or an a frame front sight post...dang it, I feel like I still don't own an AR until I have those things)
    • A really nice scope to go on my new (to me) AR with 24" target crowned and fluted barrel. It just looks sad with no glass :eek:
    • eotech magnifier to go with the eotech on my franken-AR.
    • g17 to match my 19 and the 26 I don't have
    • AK to shoot all of this surplus ammo I have that came with an SKS that I don't like to shoot.
    • A decent 1911 that I can carry...I seem to have sold all of the 1911's I own except for one that I don't wish to carry
    • ruger blackhawk convertible in 9mm/357
    • Tons and tons and tons of 9mm and 223 ammo. I mean enough spam cans I can just put cushions on them and call it a couch...I can put my real couch in storage.
    • And lastly...everything at my local gun store that has a price tag :p

    I'm With Dr Rob on the Ohio Ordnance 1918A3
    I want to have a Garand again, in KW fit.
    I want to have an M1A again, too.
    I'd like an M1 carbine in WWII fit--Inland would suffice, but an IBM would be nice.

    In an ideal world, I'd find a nice VN-configured AR with open-prong flash-hider.
    And, for historical consistency, I'll need some form of M4orgery.

    In that same vein, I'd like a Johnson, too. And, should Ohio Ord need a new project, a semi version of the Johnson AR would be interesting.

    My world, sadly, is much less perfect than that--need to win the job "lottery" else none of the rest will much matter, sadly.
