I feel satisfied for the time being with gun purchases.  I am now dipping into buying parts/lights/stuff.  For what I have now.

So what are some "must buy" items?

What I have.

AR
AK
USP
G19
XDSC
Rem 700
Keltec PF9


I also have more than enough Magazines for everything.  Plus a stockpile of ammo that will last me a few years.  I do need some decent glass for my rifle.

In order, ammo, magazines, slings, tac vest or plate carrier and armor, boots and socks, quality NV compatible optics, night vision.

Buy mags for any guns that you might want to own in the future.

Canned bacon.  The undereducated are driving pork prices down over the swine flu, now's the time to hop all over that shit.

Spare parts to keep 'em running.

Dude,

All of those add ons are cool, but get yourself a few extractors, an LPK, a couple of buffer springs, mag springs, maybe a complete bolt, maybe an ejector & spring, gas rings, etc.

Probably the best accessory is a CHL. Do you have one?

I surprised myself all the money I sunk into bullshit before getting my carry permit.

Thats a big gamble considering you face jailtime should a contingincy arise that causes you to discharge your weapon. It cost 230 bucks out the door to have the license arrive in my mailbox. Its the difference between a "Good shoot" and months of litigation/ jail.

Also consider some weapons training. Its the indian not the arrow.

I have had a CHL since I was 19.  Still have one.

In fact, I just updated my CHL to my new address.  I mailed it on monday, and recieved the updated one on friday.  I am impressed with the county sheriffs office.

I have all that, minus the LPK.  It is still on backorder.

IMO, every self defense rifle needs a light and back up iron sights. The rest is preference.

I personally use a Surefire 6P LED, MBUS, and vertical foregrip with waterproof storage for 2 CR123 batteries. I'm currently deciding on running my ACOG, my T-1, or both. I'll probably end up running both.

Also, I really like the MIAD since I have big hands and the A2 grip is pretty small.

Since you're in Oregon, hold off on the accessories and take a Thunder Ranch training course.

Actually, I have primary Iron sights right now
I am contemplating an eotech and some furniture.  Since my AR is a stock bushmaster.  I am waiting for parts a stripped lower to do a sbr.

I just ordered two mtac holsters, one for the G19 and one for the XD SC.  I am planning on retiring the keltec with the desantis cozy partner.

Training and more training.
