I've got some $ coming in and have about $600 that I can spend on a new gun. I cannot prioritize. Currently, I have an M1 Carbine, a 20" Colt MT, an Arsenal AK, a Mossberg 590A1, a SigPro in .357 Sig, a ParaOrd .45, a .357 S&W snubbie and plenty of hunting rifles and shotguns. What should be next?

I'd like to take a tac carbine course next year, and want a 16" AR to do it with. I'd just buy an upper now and get a lower later.

I'd also like a 9mm to use in the course. I have about 10 Beretta 92 mags and four or five holsters, so that's what I'm leaning towards for a 9.

I'd like to start handgun hunting, and generally would like to have a big bad-ass .44.

I'd really like to have a CMP Garand, for the historical value and as a shooter.

Poll coming.

You post at AR15.com, and you have enough money to buy another AR.

You know what to do.

Get a Garand while the CMP still has them

I noticed that there are no .22's in that list. That's a problem. Aside from that, I'd opt for the Beretta due to the accessories you already have.

I voted for the 16" AR before I saw that you don't have a .30 cal. battle rifle... I'd say the Garand, M1a or FAL.

Big +1 for the CMP Garand!

I heard somewhere that they found several hundred Winchesters in the greek returns that they are going to sell next year. That is when you need to buy one.
