What guns are you thinking about or have already bought this year?

I have some builds that have been planned, but are not quite ready yet-No pics.
I will list the chamberings: 223 Rem, 6.5 Creed, 26 Nosler, and 375 Chey-Tac.
The 26 will be up first.
How about you guys???
Let's talk about guns!

    I probably won't be buying anything this year, but rather working on and improving what I have. Right now, my Garand is off being reparkerized.

    Im thinking about my Colt 1991A1.. I replaced the plastic trigger with an aluminum one from EGW. Also replaced the nylon MS housing with an all steel unit of the same origin.

    I need to shoot it.

    A 9mm Glock of some Model. 

    Possibly that Rem 700 CP, but not sure.

    22LR suppressor is getting bought Monday.  After that, I need to decide what else I’m doing with my dad cash

    Only thing on the radar would be a Ruger Blackhawk 30 carbine. Interesting targets of opportunity are always welcome though.

    Sig Sauer P365 and an AR upper as some of the ranches now say  .30 Cal or higher.  Maybe a supersonic .300BO

    I need to get back on my project that was going to be like a Mac10 but will be easier to make like a Tec9.

    First was the XD 9, that got done today. Only thing on the wish list is a .45 acp. Most likely a 1911.

    Still want a XDS for a carry gun. Now I will wait till the Mod 2 is out for awhile and the price to come down.

    Nothing really interests me right now......... except older .22 pistols. I would pick up a High Standard or similar but I never see them reasonable on the used rack....

    I'm Jonesing again for a 20 gauge coach shotgun with choke tubes. I don't know why; I don't NEED one, but I WANT one. I guess I'm gonna have to scratch that itch this year.

    Thus far picked up that R&D gun.
    I would Love to get a little 410 side x side but need to convince the dealer to sell it first.
    An annie in 22 hornet has been bothering me also.

    So many guns so little money.

    I plan to do rescues all year . If something interesting comes along ...... will most likely buy it but have no idea what it would be right now .
  • Big ChiefBig Chief Senior Member Posts: 32,981 Senior Member
    Nothing catches my fancy right now that I want. I need to shoot the ones I already own more before buying another.

    Been thunking about turning in my C&R Lic or just not renewing. The Surplus market is dry and way overpriced. I really don't see the benefit of keeping a C&R anymore. I seldom if ever shoot the MILSURP rifles anymore.

    So I need to start thunking about selling most of them off after I no longer am a C&R holder as a private seller.

    Daughters aren't interested much in guns, anyway.

    Like Gene I need to start making plans for the future as I get older.

    Who knows something new may come along or a vintage revolver for a decent price I can't live without.

    I still have a hankering for a 686 Plus with a 3" barrel, and for a Kimber Ultra Carry II .45 but in reality will likely buy my wife that Marlin 336C she wants before buying myself another gun.

    I picked up an early 70's Winchester 94 in 30-30 so far and I will likely pick up a Henry lever in .22mag and possibly in .327.

    I'm still interested in the Ruger 9mm carbine, just because.

    What I really need to do is to pay more attention to what I already have.

    AR pistols for all the kids before they start banning stuff again, I still "need" a .45 colt. A pistol caliber carbine is on the mental list too. More scopes and optics.

    Those Ruger 9mm carbines do look handy. TennMike has one. One in .45 ACP would be a hoot.

    Then again, 9mm is much cheaper to shoot and reload for. I don't know what velocity you gain in a carbine from a pistol, but I imagine it gives the 9mm some pep and loaded with JHPs for defense would be nothing to sneeze at. 

    Also, would be a lot easier to hit your target with than a handgun.

    Gun fund is flush but haven't found anything recently that has been especially of interest. Have been contemplating checking out the canik SFX. Seems to be well liked and I have a spare fast fire I could stick on it. Also may pick up a 9mm AR pistol after playing with Eli's. Lots of AR deals, but I don't really need any and probably wouldn't get shot a ton. We'll see.

    I'd like a 9mm carbine, but want one that I already have mags for. That Chiappa M1 that takes M9 mags is garbage for the money and the only other one is Ket-tec makes one that takes M&P mags or M9 mags. It's passable but I want better.  

    Hoping some enterprising individual will make an adapter for the Ruger that will one those.

    Wife and son have both requested their own version of my bad guy medicine...so that means picking up a couple winchester 94 post 64 ...or marlin 336;s in 30-30 and refinishing them.

  • Uncle FesterUncle Fester Senior Member Posts: 1,046 Senior Member
    I am looking for the biggest’s POS wood stocked bolt action rifle - budget $100.  I want to try refinishing a stock.  If I feel up to it, I might try refurbishing.

    Ruger MK77 rifle or Winchester M70 or Bergara for hunting.

    I'd like to find an Uberti clone of the Colt SAA 1873 in .45 Colt.  Color case hardened and nice walnut grips would make it even better.

    On another list that I dream about but will never happen is a Big Horn Armory lever action in .50 S&W.

    I like my Ruger 9mm takedown carbine a LOT! Also have a High Point and a Kel Tec carbine in 9mm. The High Point takes only High Point mags. but the Kel Tec takes G17 mags, and I haven't changed out the Ruger to take G17 mags yet, and probably won't; the mag block for the Glock mags was included with the rifle.

    I also have a .45ACP carbine. It's a Mech Tech CCU ( carbine conversion unit) on a 1911 lower frame. It's a hoot to shoot, and if you have a 1911 pistol gathering dust, well worth the price, and they make them for several chamberings for the Glock pistols. No excuses if you have either pistol that you don't shoot a lot and want a carbine in that chambering.

    Ruger GP100 in 22LR. Build the wife an AR, High point 10mm carbine. Not sure why I want this but I like the 9mm version I have.
