I haven't seen this thread yet, so I figured I'd post it myself. So, Happy New Year to all the ARFCOMers! two questions: What will be your first new gun of the year? and: Money issues aside, if you could buy any one dream gun this year, what would it be? Rules: it must be real, and it must be legal. my answers: My first gun will be an compact/officers model 1911, probably a springfield. I hope to buy it by the end of january, but won't hold my breath for it. My dream gun for the year would be one of the following: M60E3, Barret M82A1, M16, or Ma Deuce. I can't really decide which of those is really the *one* dream gun for me, though. edited because I typed A3 instead of E3 on accident

My first gun is going to be an SKS. My dream gun for the year, which I may get if the money situation allows is a Lone Eagle. [img]http://www.gun-tests.com/newspics/1_3/Eagle.jpg[/img]

My first, only gun of the year, and dream gun will be a Bushmaster XM15E2S 20" HBAR. This will be my first AR. Still saving up but it shouldn't be TOO long before I get it..........

Next rifle is a Vepr K in 7.62X39. For my dream rifle, a Cooper 17 cal with a Leupold LPS side focus 2.5-10X45MM scope. If it ain't a Cooper it's a pooper [:D] [img]http://www.imagestation.com/picture/sraid45/p5cc6d0cb6e95302d17ffdb9ec13781c1/fcda83b0.jpg[/img]

I'd like to pick up an AK-74 clone, Bulgarian parts with the brake, and a Redstar arms trigger set. $450 it should cost me total. [img]http://www.joeken.com/AK74.jpg[/img] Got the mags, ammo, and Kobra sight for it already. Dream gun is a Scout M1A. Maybe my dream isn't very extravagant, but look at this economy!

First gun will be a Beretta 686E sporting clays gun. ONE of my dream guns is a full house Ballard for BPCR silhouette - [url]www.ballardrifles.com[/url] Another dream gun is a long range rifle built on a Nesika Bay action and Lilja barrel, with HS Precision Stock and NightForce scope.

Well, lets see. This year gotta be a Rem 700, and a 1911. They would be good additions.

My dream gun this year, which may happen would be a: Gewehr/Karabiner 43, with ZF4 scope and mount, in it's original stock in good condition. [img]quentinj.dynamic-dns.net/pics/gewehr43.gif[/img] Other guns I'd like to get this year will be: 4, 5 or 6 in stainless .357 revolver another M1 or two a Yugo and/or German Mauser a Yugo, or Romanian SKS a Russian SVT40 a Mosin-Nagant 91/30 That's pretty lofty. Don't think I'll be able to afford them, but someday, I'll have them all... oh yes... someday...

I think my next purchase, if I can afford to pay down on it at work, will be a Makarov. Then the Federal arms threaded bbl, and finally I'll build a supressor for it. This may take me 5-8 months moneywise though. BTW, is the Makarov round subsonic? McBalming

I received a Winchester 1300 12ga. for Christmas. I won't be able to afford much this year.... But if shall-issue goes through this year like I expect, I will probably get a keltec p32 and maybe a 1911.
Link Posted: 1/1/2003 1:45:15 PM EST
My first gun will be a Springfield Armory Loaded Operator 1911. My dream gun(s) will be replacing all the ones that I sold to pay for medical bills. Maybe along with buying the guns I sold I will save some money so next time that I have a problem I wont have to sell everything to take care of it.

Hmmmmmm.....last gun of the year was a Ruger MK512 on xmas eve day when I was supposed to be heading to dinner [:D] First of the year...as soon as the C&R gets here I'm get my 3rd SKS, a 91/30 and a K98 the first week! Non-C&R's: I plan to build up a couple more AR's and get another .45 this year. Dream gun...ClassIII M60E....I LOVE THE "PIG"!!!

82nd, shoot one over a chronograph to see if it's subsonic. I found out that it is though. McBalming

My first gun of the year is going to be the HK91 clone I have on layaway right now. My dream gun is a 1919A4 probably semi auto with tripod and 3000 30.06 rounds.
