I'm going to have to add a SA Hellcat as a possibility as well as a Dan Wesson DWX.
What is on my short list to Santa? More reloading supplies. I don't really need any new firearms although a Mini-14 would be nice, instead I need to reload more to shoot what I already own more often.
I took care of my short list got them both Marlin .444 rifle & S&W .22 Victory pistol. So now I am buying what like and see at the time i'm lgs shopping.
The Dan Wesson DWX has vaulted to the top of my list. The CZ 204 Ruger will have to wait.
I picked up two more milsurps, with one more in the pipeline.
I guess that I'm gonna need a bigger truck.
My list has been filled,nor i'm buying whatever I see and would like to have.I am putting money back to buy a Single Six or a Rossi 92 45 24" octagon tubular magazine. It gonna be a while before I buy either.
I don't rely on Santa, and when something pops up on my short list, I usually just buy it myself.
I know, but I just had a baby, and money is tighter than it's ever been. I don't see a new gun in my future for a while.
It's funny though, before I started reloading, a bolt action rifle chambered in 223 would have been boring to me. But now... The possibilities are endless. Plus I wouldn't mind trying my hand at coyote hunting some time in the future..
A better, easier to use, chrono, and an annealer.
Not happening for me money wise, but sure would like to.
Nothing expensive at all, just a 3 1/2" barreled, bird's head gripped Heritage SA. If Ruger offered this in a single six my want would be more expensive but they don't so the Heritage it is. Mrs Santa Clause has already agreed to this.
I want to get a look at the Nightforce NX8 2.5-20x50 F1. Supposed to be great, but isn't everything?
I'm looking at a platform to launch one of the Federal Edge TLR bullets now that they're available as components. Both the .308 200gr and .284 155gr are intriguing. I'm considering a CZ 550 in 28 Nosler for the .284. Possibly a M70 in .300 WSM for the .308. It's the first .308 bullet worth talking about in a long time IMO.
A third Beretta Pico as a safe queen to go along with my range Pico and my Carry.
A Beretta Apx Carry to go along with my Two Nano's.
Actually Have too many guns as it is. Do not really need any more.
What sucks about getting old ... er, and have been into firearms for 45+ years ...
About 8 years ago I started buying guns I passed on or couldn't afford 20-30 years ago and re-acquiring Guns that I regretted selling to buy other guns I thought I wanted.
So, I really don't have a short list and when I go to a show ... even a big one, I walk around and 98% of the time I look at something and it's either "had one, don't want another" or "got one" ... so now I keep looking for something I like the looks of ... for instance, I recently bought a stainless Mini-14 with a Choate stainless folding stock and I just "liked it", even tho I've had a couple and at the time (compared to an AR) the accuracy was crap so I'd sell them ... now I just accept it for what it is, (a 3-4" moa gun) but its compact and reliable, and its fine.
If $ 600 fell off a donut truck I would buy a Labradar "chrono." Right now I cannot justify the price but tune in tomorrow.
My Caldwell chrono works but it is a pain to tote and set up... and further the phone app does not function in my remote range.
I would like a 458 SOCOM upper.
A Glock 29SF 10mm would look very delightful under the tree.
Retro 4x carry handle scope from Brownell's
Any Colt firearm, but a 901 would be sweet since they quit making 308s. King Cobra Target model would do.
I'd like another decent red dot, have my eyes on one from Bushnell I might try.
If Santa is really out there a Colt marked 1918a3 by Ohio Ordnance would be the bestest gift ever!
Bought it three weeks ago-an early, very unexpected gift “from my wife”:
a Sig P225 (1987) with factory test target, box etc.
It was available only because a regular Armslist buddy decided to sell on that website.
A Trapdoor Springfield
An M1 Garand
S&W Victory .22 for plinking
A flintlock rifle
An older, blued S&W model 10 or 15 with a heavy barrel
A Beretta PX4 9mm
...my tastes are eclectic and my list is long. The priorities change every day.
Savage 308 Hog Hunter, but since that's not going to happen a Ken Onion Edition Work Sharp knife sharpener to help keep all the knives sharp for processing the deer I shot with my old 06 will do.
Santa answered my letter early. Should be picking up my Walther Q4 next week.
