I'm having a hard time deciding which route I want to go next.  I tend to prefer newer style/technology guns that are lighter, shorter and usable, meaning something I'd have a tendency to use out in the woods, on my ranch, not something to look at, goo goo over and sit in storage.  I'm not a long range shooter, more of a 0 to 150 or 200 yard shooter, mostly up close.  If I was going to shoot long, I'd use one of my current rifles.

I just recently purchased an HK USC which fits well with my style, as it's a common caliber that I already have a lot of and I'll definitely play with some, maybe use for some coyotes and who knows what else and I do like HK products.  I'd really like to get a PS90 but the caliber bothers me, as it's not something I have, and it's not something I expect to find a lot of around here and the PS90 would be the only thing I have the uses it.  Still tho, I'd love to have one in my collection.  Another thought was either the SL8 or maybe an FS2000 as I have a lot of .223 and it'd work well with my others.  I wouldn't object to a 9mm carbine either.  Lastly, I had a thought to build another AR either in 5.56 or 6.8, which I already both calibers.  

Any thoughts or suggestions?  I'm not wanting to spend a lot of cash, like under $2k.

With the decreased availability of 5.56/.223 ammo, my next build/purchase is going to be a 5.45x39mm. This is due to the abundance of ammo in this area, and the price is comparable to .223.

Just my .02

Maybe an MSAR or a Sig 556.  Both would be different but would fit in your collection.

I was looking at both of these actually but it just recently slipped my mind.  Haven't thought about anything in the 5.45 either... thanks for the input.

Taking a different tack here, but I'd recommend a CMP Garand and a bunch of HXP ammo.

How about a Robinson XCR or Sig 556?
