    Right now I'm having trouble deciding on what my next gun purchase should be.

    I have:
    XD40 Service
    Judge (Snakes and other crawly things I don't like)
    S&W 15-22 plinking and small game semi auto
    FNAR 308 Larger game semi auto
    BDL 700 270 bolt action
    Winchester Model 1894 30-30 lever action
    Wilson 12ga pump (older and needs care)
    Winchester 1300 Defender 12 ga pump
    Remington 20 ga semi auto (needs overhauled)
    Winchester model 67 bolt action single shot 22 cal (most accurate iron sighted gun I've ever shot)
    Nitro Express 12 ga break action shotgun single barrel (from around 1900) so I'm not confident to shoot it before inspection by a gunsmith.
    Harrington and Richardson 410 Break Action

    I'm thinking maybe a buckmark or ruger target pistol
    Maybe a good 1911
    243?

    I don't CC so I'm not worried about that (tho it might change in the future)

    I like the thought of an AR-15, but just don't see the need right now, plus it would be a money pit.

    If you were in my position, what would you consider to be essential firearms that I'm missing?

    Thanks

    Do they still sell the PK22/Pk380 combo package?

    My ex wants a PK22 for protection, but I keep telling her to get at least a 380. She has trouble pulling the slides on 9mm pistols.

    that's the one. I'll check it out tomorrow morning. Still not sure if I want a Walther though, but it would server my ex and myself at the same time.

    Winchester model 67 bolt action single shot 22 cal

    I have one of these too. If only my dad took better care of it; the bore is pitted and the gun doesn't have much bluing. Still accurate though and a great trainer.

    Why not spend the money to fix what you currently have now, and worry about new purchases later?

    I am. The person who's doing the re-bluing is a little behind. When he catches up I'll get my guns to him. He's only charging $50/gun to re-blue so I'm just going to let him do one to start to make sure the quality is good (probably the Remington 20 ga). He's a pastor but does gunsmithing also.

    Wilson 12ga pump (TLC then re-blued)
    Remington 20 ga semi auto (after rework it's getting re-blued)
    Winchester model 67 bolt action single shot 22 cal (re-blued)
    Nitro Express 12 ga break action shotgun single barrel (gunsmith inspection then re-blued if it's ok structurally)
    Harrington and Richardson 410 Break Action (re-blued)

    These have been in my family for a long time. It's too bad they were stored in my mothers basement.

    I'll be honest, if I were you at this point, I would spend the cash on getting those guns that mentioned, looked at by a gunsmith, overhalled, ect. Unless you have a specific need that none of your current firearms will fill.
