I am fortunate enough to be able purchase another gun at this time. I know I have a decent collection (atleast in my mind), more than some folks, and less than many others. My question is, What next? Pistol or Rifle and which one. Thanks in advance for your recomendations.

Here is what I have -

Marlin 25N .22
Ruger 10/22 Bull Barrel
Ruger 10/22
Ruger SR22
Savage .17HMR
S&W M&P 15-22
S&W 15 Sport
Ruger Mini 14
Tikka .22-250
Marlin .30-30
Remmington 700 .270

Benneli Super Black Eagle
HK FP6

Walther P22
Browing .22
S&W 686+
Sig P232
Glock 17
Glock 27
Kimber 1911
S&W Tactical .40
Springfield XD.40
Ruger KP90

Okay, I thinks that all

You know with that many options your gonna have just as many suggestions, in my opinion go for the 17HMR, awesome lil caliber and really fun, plus its not too expensive and its not too LOUD!

Urr... am I missing something, or do you not have an AR? If you don't, then there's your answer. Either AR-10 or AR-15 pattern will suffice. :D

You need a battle rifle. Semi auto in .308. My 2.

No C&R?

How about a nice M1 Carbine?

+1 for the AR-10/AR-15

Since you already have a Mini 14, I would recommend an AR-10 or a M1A of some sort.

Guys, I think the S&W 15 Sport on his list is an AR and I think he already owns a 17HMR.

I'll agree with others and say a .308 semi-auto or another shotgun or something custom (depending on the type of shooting the OP prefers).

No AK pattern?

I would take the 10/22 bull barrel and Remy M700 in 223 or 308.

I think you already have a good selection of rifles so I'm going to suggest a handgun.

Sig P226 (W. German) 9mm
CZ 75 or CZ SP01 9mm
Ruger Vaquero 45LC

I'm looking at an SKS for my next purchase. I hear good things about them. Just my 2 cents...

Also, If it's a pistol you're looking for, the S&W M&P 9mm is a GREAT gun! People say it has a weird trigger but I have no problem with it lol. The quality of the thing is amazing and the accuracy is dead on.

What should I look at in an AK (brand) and what am I looking at as far as price? I know nothing about AK's so be gentle.....lol

J&G has a great deal on Saigas atm, very good platform to convert to a more traditional AK pattern.

Pause for a while on the collection and get a Dillon 550B or 650 reloading machine.

Then get a 10MM Glock 29.

Have fun.

I vote AK or SKS. Both are awesome. I have a Russian SKS, and a WASR-10, but after converting an S12 I wish I bought a Saiga 7.62 and converted it myself.

Yep, the AK are lots of fun. That is what you should get!

I'll be reasonable and echo the earlier sentiment of getting a reloading setup...


Oh who am I kidding? Get yourself a darn AK-47! Build your own for best results. If you can't, start with a WASR and see how you like it.

I think you need more wheel guns, but since this is the rifle forum I like the idea of a .308. :thumbsup:

S&W 686+
Sig P232
Glock 17
Glock 27
Kimber 1911
S&W Tactical .40
Springfield XD.40
Ruger KP90

Okay, I thinks that all

In no particular order:

1) Ammo in every caliber you have plus reloading supplies to forestall the inevitable impacts of commodity prices rising and subsequently ammo prices
2) A bigger gun safe with a suitably high fire rating, you've got enough there to drive an insurance company to close shop in your area
3) A large book with pictures of each weapon, it's serial and so on just in case something is stolen or your house is demolished/incinerated and you forgot to buy the higher cost thick walled/insulated fire rated gun safe

As for what "firearm" to purchase, that depends on what and whether you compete or plan to compete, or whether you hunt and in what kind of terrain, but you've got your "general purpose" bases pretty well covered. I'm glad to see a lot of practical weapons without the gee-whiz techno-tactical garbage that makes the mall ninjas happy.

+1 on the AK ! :D you have a unique blend of a collection there. I think it warrants one! Rifle! go Rifle!

I see you are new to collecting firearms so asking for assistance in choosing the next one(s) is perfectly understandable. ;) If it were me, I'd look for an M1A Scout Squad and then, perhaps, a Sig P220, a .308 bolt gun, and a couple more revolvers.

Try some pack and ball. They blow a great flame and you will really learn what a dirty gun is! I have 78 guns in total, mostly pre-64 mint collectables I do shoot and I do have a black gun but the pack and ball are a kick in the butt.

You have the "basics" covered. Anything forward would just be a want vs need. If you don't have them equiped yet I would get optics. I made the mistake of getting behind on putting optics on firearms and that's all I've purchased this year.

If you want a firearm I would get a Springfield M1A. Pick your poison for length/model. Maybe a CMP Garand and some ammo.
