Ok guys I'm saving up for another firearm purchase, but I cant decide what I should get. I'll tell you what I currently have, and I would appreciate it if you guys would throw out some suggestions and reasons about what I should get next. I'm trying to acquire a "well-rounded" collection, but I'm a poor college student on a limited budget right now.

Here is what I have so far:
Winchester Model 70 Featherweight Classic in .270 Win
DPMS LAR-308T in .308 Win
Ruger 10/22
Remington 11-87 Premier in 20 ga.
Kimber Tactical Custom II in .45 ACP
Browning Buck Mark in .22LR

I'm leaning towards making my next purchase a Remington 700 in .308, but I've also got the 1911 itch again too.

What would you guys get?

You've got a nice little arsenal there. IMO you have the bases covered pretty well, (except an AR in 5.56/.223 ). What do you want most?

I think you're missing something. An AR-15 pehaps?

Man, for a second there I thought I was on ar15.com!


How about a 12ga? Any interest in reloading? Milsurp stuff is a lot of fun too!

Yea, maybe I should add a 5.56 AR. I don't really have a "varmint" type gun, so maybe an 20 inch freefloated AR with a nice Leupy Mark 4 would be the ticket for that eh?

You already have an LR308; I'm thinking a carbine.

BB the 308T is a 16in carbine.

Oh man, I will definitely have to think about that one.

Either an AR in 5.56 or an AK in 7.62.

Gotta agree. I'd probably either get a serious long-range upper for that LR308 or an AK or AR carbine in mouse caliber. But thats me

I like the basics; AR carbine, AK, FAL, M1A, G3, etc...

Take a look in the pic's thread in the M1A area, and there you will deff. see some nice set-ups that may point you in that direction! CQB you say? socom, short-medium range? scout squad long range? full length M1A match or any other really!
