Mossberg 590

AR-15 AK Shorty
AR-15 Varmint
AR-10T .308

Remington 700 PSS in .300 Ultra
Winchester model 94 30/30... one original/one modern
Ruger 10/22's [a couple]
NEF .22 mag
Ruger M77 7mm Mag.

A couple of project guns.

Next will hopefully be an Armalite AR-10A4C in green as a brush gun.  But not until they unscrew the conversion kit prices and the whole 'send in the empty shells' crap.  Someone makes a .308 AR that uses FAL mags.  Maybe I'll go that route [hint-armalite].

It's a small collection, but it suites me until I can afford one of those arsenals I hear about in the news.

Soon I will get a Savage Arms .308.

Nice collection, eh? :-)  I've only been a gunowner for about a month.  But I'm beginning to feel the addiction already.

Got $900 going towards another piece to round it all off.  By the suggestions of board members, I might round off with a good bolt action, in a very high caliber!  What's left over from the 900 will be dropped in ammo, or, a fluted dissipator A3 upper with V-match flip up sight.

Ah...I sure do love the sight of a large brass pile over my right shoulder!

I believe I'm at over 45 different firearms, and having a C&R license doesn't help.

I went crazy with Mosin Nagants having:

M91/30's, one sniper and two regular
pair of M38's
pair of M39 Finnish
pair of M91/59's

A handful of like new Mausers such as:
3 1938 Turks
M48 Bosnian
Yugo M48

Romanian SKS
Chinese RPK
AR15 carbine from kit
Glenfield 778 12 gauge
Savage 110 (my deer rifle tack driver)
pair of Marlin 60's
Romanian M69 .22

.45 percussion Kentucky rifle
pair of .50 cal flintlocks for deer season

Pile of pistols:
3 Tokarevs
3 Makarovs
2 Nagant revolvers
Star B 9mm
.380 Davis semi
Pair of .38 snubbies (Taurus and S&W)

Probably missing some others, but that's it in a nutshell. My ammo situation is much worse!

How about some pictures? I don't have one of those shots of a big pile of weapons stacked up on the huge supply of ammo, but's here's a few items from my collection you might recognize (and a few you might not):

There a quite a few other pieces in the collection; revolvers, autos, shotguns, a couple of normal looking ARs, and, of course, a few safe's to keep them in.

I have no collection.  If I did, it would be standardized, with at least four weapons in each category with 10,000 rounds per weapon:

12 Guage

I don't dislike wildcat or exotic calibers, but I don't have any desire to own them, either.  I love the .22 the best.  Cheap, effective, and plentiful.

Here's a pic I took of part of my collection. I will get around to the rest of the long guns and handguns sometime. This is basically what would fit along the wall.

Left to right:

1)Savage SharpShooter Supply Douglas 8 twist 22BR topped with a Nikon Monarch 6.5.X20.

2)Anschutz M64MP 22LR topped with a Sightron 6X24.

3)H&R M12 22LR topped with a Tasco WC 6X24.

4)Rem 700 17Rem topped with a Weaver V16 4X16.

5)Savage 12BVSS 223 tuned by SSS with a SSS brake topped with a Sightron 10X40.

6)Colt MT6700.

7)Colt MT6530 now topped with a Weaver V16.

8)H&R M12 topped with Redfield International sights.

9)Ithaca M700 with 32" barrels fixed chokes.

10)Perazzi TM1 with 34" barrel fixed choke.

11)Browning BT100 with 34" barrel interchangable chokes.

The one laying on the ground is a Ruger 10/22 T/TS with a Volguartsen trigger package, mag release and bolt release.

I have about a dozen more long guns ranging from Winchester in 32-40, Ruger 10/22 Bicentenial edition and a few more Ithaca trap guns.

Handguns include 5 Glocks including M17, M19, M20, M21 and an M30 along with a few rimfires and a few revolvers.

I'd like to add a Savage 6MM type bolt gun, a M29 Glock and a RRA DCM AR with a varminter upper.

That's the Savage .223.

26" barrel with a brake makes for a fairly long looking barrel.

It has put a few eyes out.
