    We had a thread about your last purchase for 2004. In the spirit of looking ahead and thoughtful planning, what is your first planned purchase for 2005? Have you even thought about it? If not, why not? :what:

    For me, I have a 3rd generation Glock 23 on layaway. It came with three drop-free normal capacity magazines (rare here in the People's Commonwealth) and was a spur of the moment decision.

    It will push my planned purchase of a Walther G22 rifle back to second. Unless a good condition, quality S&W turns up.

    edited to add: Imean an old S&W. There is nothing in their new offerings which I am interested in.

    I don't know yet, but the SHOT Show is at the end of January this year. I'm sure there will be some new models that will interest me. I hope...

    2 unfinished Bushmaster lowers for my extra uppers. Decided it would be better to have 3 guns rather than 1 gun and a bunch of spare parts :)

    G26 vs. AR vs. 625 vs. Benelli M1

    (I'm only allowed one gun a year by the Minister of Retiring by age 50).

    Maybe I'll wait for the SHOT show as well.

    According to the ATF a suppressor is a firearm too... so I guess a Gemtech Trinity 9mm suppressor. I finally got my M10/9 SMG running decently so it's time to dress it up.

    I need to add a 45 to my very limited collection, so that will be my first purchase this year.

    If I can get rid of my M48 at the gunshow, hopefully a Schmidt-Rubin will follow me home on the 1st :D

    I re-Glocked myself today, actually. I picked up a 3rd-gen G22 with 3 15-round mags in great condition for $450.

    I got it at the Manchester Firing Line and the gentlemen behind the counter even gave me 15 round for free to test it out right there on the spot, further proof that Jim McCloud and his staff are the best! :D

    Kahr PM9. I need a backup gun. Although I really want to see a CZ RAMI in person before I make this purchase.

    I am likely to spend money on training first.

    I'm going to finally get going on my PCR-8 Mag project. I'm going to order the upper and build my own lower. Just need that $800 in the bank to spare. I should be able to do it in 2005, but my credit cards will probably come first. Anyone want to buy a CZ 550 Varmit Laminated to help fund the project ;)

    It's currently in layaway, but...

    1980 S&W 66-1 with pinned and recessed cylinder, stainless, Bill Jordan grips and "target" sights, slightly used police turn in with bright prominent rifling, a minimum of scorching on the cylinder face, and minimal .38spl ring.

    I'll bring it home, polish it to mirror, and give it a name. Well, 2 of the 3 are true. I don't even name my cars :) Ok, that's not.... anyways...

    My first purchase will be the CZ SP-01 as soon as it comes out. I want the "Tactical" model as they are calling it. That is the one with the decocker. It will be the big brother to my P-01 and those who have been issued one for testing and evaluation are reporting that it holds 19 rounds!!! I have been saving money for this one since I heard it was coming.


    Possible purchases in 2005 should the money and opportunity present itself. I hope to at least end up with one from this list.

    CZ 452 Varmint in .17 HMR
    CZ 527 Varmint in .223 -or some other nice bolt action .223
    CZ PCR
    Steyr M9

    I also want to convert one of my 10/22's to .17 HM2

    It is going to be a great year. I wish all the best to THR members in 2005.

    Most likely a Remington 7600P, followed soon after by a new Para-Ordnance, either a Tac-S or the soon-to-be-released Colonel.

    Since HK is only importing Merkel shotguns now, I'm guessing you're referring to either one of the Benellis or fabarms which is still kinda accociated with the name becasue of past associations they had. Either way, there's no comparison between either and the mossy. Unless you compare a Benz and a Renault. :p

    Now then, Not 100% decided but it's looking like the next purchase will be a HK P2000sk in 9mm. Will be picking up a AcuSport Bisley in .44 on Sat or Mon but it's already paid for. Maybe a Ruger PC9GR too.

    Either way, regardless of the decisions made, I just hope that everyone has a safe and happy new year. :)

    Well, I'm thinking a Winchester model 70 in .25 WSSM. It'll make a nice light handy rifle for deer and antelope hunting. I also like the Turnbull custom Winchester 1886's. They're very nice.

    Regards

    Since I finally got a 'real' rifle (SKS), I'm thinking I need a either a full size handgun or maybe a .22lr handgun.

    I'll have about $1200 to spend next month, so I was thinking a Yugo SKS, a Steyr
    m9, and a Mossberg 590 mariner.

    Ruger Redhawk in .44 when government rebate check comes. I want to buy more but I'll need to purchase a few household items, i.e. new bed frame and a davenport.
