    I'm trying to decide what to buy next, either a shotgun (870p or 590 A1), a remington 700 LTR, or a 1911 (leaning toward the Springfield operator).

    I already have: G19, P220, AR15 (soon to be 2), Garand, 1903A3, Rem. 597

    What do you guys think?

    Good point. I do plan on ordering some AR mags, a case of 30.06, and some more shit after Christmas.

    Long story short, I have $500 from selling a gun, and I'd like to put that towards another gun.

    Handguns are boring, wheee more underpowered weapons. I'd go for a long gun of some sort. Maybe even some more milsurps to start a collection based off the garand.

    im in the process of building my AR, next gun after that will be a S&W 642, then a 1911 and a beretta 92fs.

    this winter/next summer i want to get an ak74 and a -47 parts kit and a second AR lower receiver. after that, no more new guns for a while - just ammo.

    Why'd you just quote half my post? :big grin:

    Personally I really like the ballistics of 6.8 spc and want to build one. I need to get into reloading first though.

    I've thought about 6.8 too. I wish I had somewhere to have a nice reloading setup. Thats also why I haven't bought a safe yet, nowhere to put a decent sized one :hs:

    I may be crazy but I'm a pretty low volume shooter and I'm thinking about a hand help press so everything could go back into a small box when I'm done. I think sizing rifle cases would probably suck but....

    Man, my dad has (or used to have) a pretty basic reloading setup for 30.06 out in the shed. I need to find out if he still has that stuff. I know he got rid of all his 30.06 when he sold his Garand.
