    Hey guys. I am in the mood to buy a new gun. But to be honest I do not know what to get. I really can't say that I need anything. Can't even decide what type of gun to get.
    Decided to ask you guys to see if anybody has any interesting ideas.
    What are your favorites? Have you seen anything new that looks exciting? What is your next wish list gun? There really is no right answer, just looking for some ideas.

    Thanks Hogs. I will let you know what I come up with.

    It was that DDM4 porn I posted eh? HAHA. I highly recommend the 460 S&W Magnum in the 5" barrel. When you shoot it at the range, people will drop their pistols out of pure shock factor. If you miss a target at 7 yards, no fear, the shock wave off that baby will knock the target over. That is a 400 grain hard cast lead hand load (1700 fps out of the 5" barrel) next to a 223 round.

    I would highly recommend a uberti winchester copy 1873 in your choice of caliber and tuned by a cowboy action gunsmith. One of the fastest and most fun shooting rifles i've ever owned. 44/40 would be the best choice if you reload it makes an amazing shooter. Load that with black powder and a 200 grain bullet and its a great pig and deer killer as well.

    HK P7M8. Totally unique and superior in so many ways. If only they still made 'em.

    My latest infatuation is the Alaskan Co-Pilot by Wild West Guns in their .457 magnum. If you guys would just stop coming out with must-have INFI, maybe I could afford one.

    My Kimber is my favorite gun, they have worked out the problems they have had in the past. I just hit 1500 rounds through my gun today and I haven't had a single malfunction with any kind of ammo I have put through it. My next purchases are going to be a Sig p220 and probably a marlin lever of some kind

    Mainly depends what for, I have roughly two dozen at the moment ranging from a browning buckmark and GSG-5 (awesome .22 platform) to my Eagle .50.

    That said, my go-tos are:
    Rifle: Colt LE6920
    Shotgun: Benelli M1S90
    Handgun: Wilson CQB 1911, HK MK 23 and HK USPC 9mm

    I second Maximumpenetration's choice. A 460V is AWESOME! Definitely one of my "must have" handguns in the future.

    Well, for handguns. Let's start with the classics:

    Mauser Broomhandle
    Smith and Wesson K22
    WWII Colt 1911
    Webly Mark IV
    Smith and Wesson 25

    New handguns:
    Les Bear 1911
    Dan Wesson 1911
    Smith and Wesson 460V
    Desert Eagle 41 magnum
    Smith and Wesson 657
    Smith and Wesson 610
    Sig 938 (if you can find one at the moment)

    LWRC makes some bad a$$ 10.5" SBRs
    Daniel Defense
    Ruger Gunsight is pretty BA
    DPMS AR-10
    Barrett AR, 50 BMG, 416, or 338 Lapua

    Hell, just go all out and get a 375H&H double rifle or 416 Rigby.

    Shotguns, the Benelli M4, Serbu Super Shorty (wouldn't call it a favorite, but cool), or a short barrel shotgun out of an A5, that would be awesome.

    Or, you could go full auto and look for a Sten, old grease guns are great for burning ammo.

    Price range?

    I've gotten a liking to a Hi-power recently.

    But if price were not a big thing, I'd cough up about 3.5 large for a Sphinx Standard Model 3000 in your choice of 22+1 9mm, 19+1 .40, or 15+1 .45acp. The finest of Swiss engineering. Absolutely no MIM parts. Everything is machined in a state of the art facility in Switzerland. The fit and finish is better than many custom 1911s and the slide to frame fit is tighter than most as well. I'd go with an all steel frame, but you can go with titanium or even aluminum (and this is only for the middle receiver). For the grip, you can also decide on steel, titanium, or aluminum. This way you can tailor the weight to your needs. I'd also opt for the finger grooves. 3.3 pound single action trigger pull with something like a 6 pound double action.


    EDIT: And it says Kriss USA because Kriss is the importer now for Sphinx.

    Or, how about an AR pistol? [​IMG]

    Love my FAL, N-frame Smith's, Ruger Blackhawks. The AR in 458 SOCOMM is pretty sweet. I wouldn't mind having an FN SCAR in the .308 flavor, a Freedom Arms single action in .454 Casull, and left handed 338 Lapua bolt gun. .50 BMG's are great fun also.

    For a mouse gun/backup the new Boberg XR9S. Shoots 9mm +P and is very smooth and light. Recoil is not bad either. Check out the feed mechanism. It allows for a longer barrel in a small package.

    A 45 may be on the way also.

    Well.............. with all the 5.56 critic's and alleged lack of stopping power, the 6.8 SPC might be something worth looking into with the new bolt carrier design. If the 5.56 is having all the issues reported, it boggles the mind, why the Military continues to use it? Course, with all the AR's in service, it will always be a good idea to have one. I have also given thought to a different .308 rifle, as I have 2 Springfield's.
    If we go into dream weapon's, The Barrett and several other brand's in .50 BMG would be interesting to play with of course, that's big money, and something I personally can't afford :)

    I don't have anything to add because I currently live in a place where you'd have to be married to the police chief's daughter to get a License to Carry. BUT, I am hopefully moving to a wonderful place soon and my first moving gift to myself is going to be an LTC, followed closely by a gun to carry.

    This thread is great for me. I've been having a tough time deciding on what to buy. I want something high end, and Wilson Combat is looking better and better everyday. I like the CQB, but I will have to fire one before pulling the trigger on the purchase.

    I can't wait to see what you end up with!

    The A-10 rocks my favorite "gun":D
    M777, M134, M60, M2, M249, MP5, HK beltfed models, 1919&#8230;&#8230;oops got a little carried away when you said "favorite".

    You do pose a very difficult question to answer. For me my next firearm will most likely be a 1911 pistol or .308 rifle. Looking at a couple shotguns too. It kind of boils down to not only what you already own and like, but also what roll you want to fill. If it's target plinker, hunting/recreational piece, competition race gun or defensive staple, etc. the answers differ.
    I believe you are just looking for a suggestion or two of guns of any type. A few ideas have already been posted, I'll be watching this thread to see what else is suggested.

    Well Garth, I blame you again, with all the talk about HK's, I went out last Friday and bought a HK 45.
    Took it to the range Saturday evening, very very pleasant to shoot, ant it's accuracy surprised me.

    As far as a new gun, I really like my FN Ps 90
    My Kel Tec RFB is outrageous. (I am waiting for the Kel Tec KSG - shot gun to come in)
    I also picked up a CZ, VZ58 7.62x39 very nice rifle
    I will try and post pics later on in the week.

    My favorites?

    anything that goes boom

    but anyways, for exact models, a fun project is building a ruer 10/22 up to whatever the heck you want to. They can be set up as bull-pups (one kit out there now), super accurate target guns, or tacticool ARs and what not. and they are really cheap to shoot.

    any 1911 is a great choice, ruger mkIIIs are awesome.

    the next gun I get will either be a carry weapon (when I turn 21) which will be a snubby colt python or a wilson combat or some other 1911 or some other .357.

    next rifle will be one of a couple, some sort of AR (idk what type yet) a super accurate rifle that I can use for hunting and for taret shooting, I was thinking maybe a mil-spec .308, or an AR in .458 socom or .50 beowulf....why such large calibers? why not?

    or I will get an 870 and get a short barrel permit

    If you are in the mood for buying a new gun, I would go with something you can turn into a project (ie: build your own AR or 10/22 or set up an 870 just like you like it, etc...)
