There's only two guns that I'm wanting right now; one of those royal blue Wranglers, and a 6" blue Colt Diamondback .22lr revolver.

I can't find the first one, and can't afford the second one. If ARs got into crazy prices again, like when people paid over $2,000 for them, I'd see if I could give up my 20" Bushmaster for a Diamondback.

For some reason I think I need to have a 1941 Johnson Automatics.   And maybe an M2 carbine.

I'd like a 2011 of some type.

43x MOS.

I don't need it, but want a 44 mag revolver, and lever gun with a threaded barrel....

I'm wanting a 357 lever gun to go with my s&w revolvers.

I'm not buying anything at today's prices though.

I'm going in the other direction. I've sold about 30 guns in the past six weeks or so. Bought one. Will probably sell another half dozen or so in the coming weeks.

Can't think of anything else that I really"need".
Maybe MORE mags and ammo but I don't think you can have too much of either of those things.
I'm interested in one of those carcano rifles PSA has.
For some reason the new Taurus G3 TORO coming up had me looking.
Also been thinking about maybe trying to trade my G2 Glock 17 for an M&P 2.0 9mm to try one out.
That's about it tho.

Currently looking for Jap Type 99 LMG. I own probably the only semi-auto in the country, but I want to sell it for the real deal.

I started to make a list and felt greedy honestly. I could be happy with just a couple more, I just legitimately want so many!

I had the money saved up for an IBM when CMP first release the M1 Carbine.  Everyone wanted the Rockola, but I wanted the IBM.

Never bought it

I don't know what part of the state you're in but Ken up at C&S metall-werkes has a few BM-59s.
I don't know if he still has them or any details tho.

My man

I want too many, need only a few.

Higher quality AR, mp5, CZ 75 sp-01, a TBD full size poly pistol, garand. And for some reason I can't explain my heart lusts after a scar

If anyone is looking to offload one of the above let me know

Weird. I’m also desiring either a .357 mag lever action, or a .44 mag lever action and revolver.

The interest in pistol/revolver cartridge lever guns is high right now. I wonder what prompts the current craze in others and myself.  I justify the desire with thinking I need to get back into reloading, which benefits from guns that don’t send expended brass into orbit.

Single shot, long barrel 45/70 or similar chambering.

Another long range steel ringer. Maybe in a 7mm flavor...... maybe in a 6mm flavor.

I bought a Rossi 92 in .357 a few years back.  It is criminal how little I've shot it.  My single range day with it, it was a blast.  I was just messing around shooting steel at 45 yards, but that 16" barrel shot a lot better than I expected.

I got a new turkey gun and I'm leaning towards sending my used, good condition camo 26" Mossberg 935 down the road.  Any suggestions on fair market price with 3 factory chokes and a Jellyhead choke?  I figure I'll hit up a few kitchen table FFL buddies this morning as well to see what their thoughts are.  Kinda hard to price when nothing is in stock, but the cheapest new ones that I found in my Google search were $630 and $735.

That sounds as painful as the shotgun patterning I did Sunday shooting 3.5" 12 gauge rounds.

Last weekend, after 4 shots through my new to me Super Black Eagle, I decided that I would prefer to stand downrange and be shot by a 5th shot before I would shoot it.  

For anyone gauging the market, I got $600 for the 935 and 4 chokes yesterday.  I mighta coulda done a little better in  the current market, but I didn't want to have to dicker around with a bunch of tire kicking mouth breathers, so I was pretty satisfied.

Limbsaver is your friend.

Reduced felt recoil on everything I’ve put them on by more than 50%.

THIS! I bought a 20ga Mossberg Turkey gun about a year ago. So I sat down to pattern my 20ga shotgun with 3" turkey loads. Did NOT like the experience in the least! Even that 20ga rattled my teeth. Got a 'Limbsaver' for it and all is well.

Turkey and Deer Slugs are the WORST !!!

I was into shotguns long before deer rifles.

A buddy let me shoot his bolt action .308 and when I didn't think its recoil was so bad, he didn't believe it since I'd never shot a 'High Powered' rifle before.

Shotguns kick like a damn mule with turkey / deer loads compared to my hand loaded to 3k ft/second .30-06.

Soooo glad someone suggested Limbsaver all those years ago.  They're on damn near every hunting gun I have.

There may very well be an equivalent out there by now.  I really wouldn't know.


As to the topic of the thread :

I suppose getting a decent 1911 would be cool.  Same with a couple 3rd Gen. S&W semi-autos to include the 3913 and a Lady Smith for my wife.

I guess an AR-10 should be in the arsenal as well.

I have an M1 carbine with a bad bolt.  Should have looked into getting that fixed, but blew it off because I had discovered AR's.

Okay, just thought of something...a thermo scope and pair of binoculars. Just hard to validate the need to spend $6000-$8000 on a good set of these.

Uggh never sell to a gunshop.   The one I used to work for made a religion out of lowballing every gun that came through the door.  I remember a m82 that was part of a big batch of nice dead man's guns that a family brought in,  still in case, decent scope (can't recall exact model) and the whole batch netted the family maybe 5k.
Link Posted: 4/17/2021 11:07:23 PM EDT
For some unknown reason, I all sudden got a hankering for a good, cheap 410 single shot breakopen for a quick BOB.

Found a new Rossi with a 18.5" barrel at a pawnshop, but the price seems a little high at $145 and this model doesn't fold itself in half like other breakopens do. I do like that the fired shells actually eject from this model for quicker reload and barrel being much shorter than most.

Wife isn't into shooting rifle type guns, but I think even she would like this little cutie of a shotgun.
