    I don't really have a penchant for surplus stuff, but if I fell into $4k I'd likely be buying some AR lowers and a reloading setup, then bank the rest.

    Don't know your current economic situation, but at the moment cash seems to be a pretty good investment.

    I don't really love the surplus stuff either but you seem to. I'd buy all the surplus ammo I could. It won't get cheaper.

    ar lowers buy $4000 worth...the return on investment when you finally receive them and resell them with the demand right now ridiculous.. they they will be the new form of cash and better than investing the money :bowdown: then take the cash from the sale and buy whatever you want :bigthumb:

    Honestly I'd skip the surplus stuff. Why have a bunch of stuff you kinda like, but don't shoot that often, that you have to store. I tend to think, if I could only have one of a given item, what would I buy? Then I buy that.

    How many 1911's, shotguns, AK's can you shoot? I'd prefer one shotgun for home defense and that's it, given I don't shoot clay. Buying all the cheap shit keeps you from getting ridiculous shit.

    Instead get a very few awesome guns that 10 years from now you will still think are awesome.

    My list
    precision bolt gun (probably a custom 700 from one of the boutique shops)
    I'd probably SBR the AR and if I bought spare lower's I'd get a POF or similar billet lower (if you are just buying spares you can wait around for the right ones)
    Pistol that makes your pants sticky (that may be a sig, or that may be an SVI)
    Take a pistol/rifle/precision class with corresponding ammo/magazines

    Then I'd sell any extra stuff lying around because prices are higher than they'll even be post ban.

    ....or I'd save my 4k because tomorrow you could walk into the office and they tell you about the latest round of layoffs

    A.) I love my surplus shit, any given weekend i'll load my truck up with 10+ rifles, and 5-10 handguns and go shoot all day.

    B.) I work for my family, my economy is good. I have a fairly large savings account to fall back on if need bed.

    With that out of the way. Today I picked up a couple new toys.

    1 - Rock Island 1911 .45 Commander (I love RI stuff, cheap, I can beat them around and they stay tight. Unlike Vagina's.)
    2 - Rebuilt CZ 82 with 6 magazines
    3 - Police trade-in Sig P228 ( I love them, shoot well. Can conceal fairly easy.)
    4 - (Ordered) Nagant Revolver $96 from a gun shop, should be in monday. Cheap to shoot, cheap to purchase. Parts arent hard to find.
    5 - Nagant 44 Carbine ( This is the second one I own, I really enjoy the nagant carbines, full length 44's are for bitches.)
    6 - 3x DPMS Milled stripped lowers.
