Had my 35th Birthday on Saturday. [<]:)] Everyone knowing my appreciation of firearms I received a gift certificate for 1,000 dollars from my wife, Parents and friends. [:D] Here is the question what should I get and why. I have a 44 magnum Ruger Red Hawk a Berreta 92 9mm a 12 gauge Mossberg shotgun and two AR 15’s. The AR’s are one post-ban kit gun with a PWA lower and heavy Wilson Target barrel 20” the other a pre-ban Colt Sporter with a 20”. Thinking of getting a AR 10 or FAL some come on guys give me some ideas. Thanks [:\] Craiger

The new Armalite 180 would be something to look at. Or how about a Dillon RL550B reloader and acc. to feed those you already have?

FAL has got to be the best rifle chambered in .308 IMO. Of course I've never shot an AR-10 but... Mags and parts are ALOT cheaper for an FAL. Plus, it's alway's nice to add a piece of firearms history to your collection. I say go FAL. I've yet to let somebody shoot it who doesn't like it, even though it's Century made.

O3Shoter I did not even consider the reloader that is a very good idea. I have never reloaded but have read about guys sharing recipes on loads. How hard is it to re-load? I do enjoy feeding the Kids [uzi] How much $$$ can a guy save reloading if you shoot 300 or four hundred rounds a month? Thanks for the idea. It seems the FAL is the weapon of choice I figure if I get another rifle it should be in .308 but that is not set in stone. This is probably stupid, cannot see a real good use for but really think is cool .50 AE semi auto pistol or a Tromix .458 socom upper. Craiger

Some suggestions - In .308 - 1. DSA FAL STG 58 (at $800, you gotta see it to believe it.) 2. M1A Double lug receiver and build up from there. In .223 - 1. LEGP AR15 2. Preban lower amd build up from there. 3. Armalite AR180B Others - 1. CMP M1 Garand (at $550, NOTHING else even comes close.) 2. Oly Arms pistol caliber uppers - 9mm or 40 S&W with a Trijicon reflex II.. PURE FUN!!!!!!!!!!!! That's all I can thing of right now.
