So what are you guys doing for your firearms this year? What are you doing about it now?

Here are my New Year's Firearms resolutions:

FINISH ALL PROJECTS!!!
What am I doing about it? Well, my Browning Hi-Power is in the shoppe getting a new finish and new Novak Tritiums. I have already done the blending and polishing and have a new sear from Cylinder and Slide fitted, installed and tested. My Remington 700 in 300 Win Mag is having twin ejectors installed to compnsate for the Harris Extractor that really helped extraction but ruined the ejection. My Stainless 1911 NRM has been dehorned and reblasted, all MIM parts were replaced and it looks and shoots great.


BUY NEW QUALITY ACCOUTRAMENTS: I've already bought new Galco Leather for the 1911 and I am off to Galco tomorrow to get a nice FLETCH holster ( or something ) for the HP. Also getting a new Galco Belt. What I really need is more mags for everything. I have a lot of good GI AR and M14 mags and quite a few Wilson mags for the 1911 but the HP needs more facotry mags....needless to say I am getting more mags for everything.

AMMO....'nuff said. I need a healthy stash. I only have a couple hundred rounds for each gun as of now.


So...what about you guys?

not so much a new years resolution, but i have decided to make the rifle i have relatively complete before i move on to anything else( optic,more mags,diff stock, about 1500 more rounds, other stuff) by the end of the year i also want to have a pistol and a FAL. i get a feeling this never ends.

I'm saving for an HK sear pack. I might pick up a DSA STG Para Carbine this year as well, and maybe a USP 45 Compact. I already have a form 4 in process that will clear sometime this winter (AAC .45 Evolution). Any more, if I dont' have at least something pending, I just dont' feel right.

Funny you should ask!
After the Washington Hometown Forums Annual New Year's Day Shoot, I SWEAR I'll never bring more than 4 GUNS to a shoot again --- ever!
I 'resoluted' that after packing, carrying, getting rained on and wiping down about 11 guns this time!
I've finally gotten every friend, neighbor and relative out for a shoot with the various kinds of guns/actions/calibers/etc. and from now on we shoot fewer guns, but more often!
Some of you know what I mean, dont'cha?
Link Posted: 1/2/2006 12:51:11 PM EDT
Training and spend more time at the range. I have enough fucking guns (not like I wont buy any more this year )

One of my next "goals" is to replace the Springfield Receivers on my 2 M1As with LRBs. Actually the Scout is getting a chrome lined barrel in the process, too!!! That's about 2 grand or more in parts and labor so it's wayyy down on the list.

I am heading out for more gunleather tomorrow!

I'm confused? Are you saying you have more than 10 guns, and at least one MG? So you're in the selling market now?

Or you want to make sure you buy no more than 10 guns, and not to buy any MGs?

Just curious.

One word

Link Posted: 1/4/2006 4:39:54 AM EDT
Buy a lower for my dissipator upper
Buy a Glock to justify all the mags left over from the ones I sold
Either get the XCR when if finally ships or use the money towards a AR carbine and alot of ammo.
Get 2000 more rounds of 5.56 SHTF ammo
Get 400 more rounds of 45ACP
Get 1000 rounds of 38special
Get 300 rounds of 357 mag

Most importantly, not buy another handgun (Glock excluded) until I get better with the ones I already have.
Link Posted: 1/4/2006 7:21:15 AM EDT
Buy the appropriate accessories for my plain-jain guns..........I'm not purchasing any guns until my current collection is hooked up.
Link Posted: 1/4/2006 10:28:42 AM EDT
Get a PS-90 and mags and then take out a loan for the ammo.

Sell the 17L and then get a Glock 19 with doctor optic red dot.

But the final and real resolution is to actually get to go shooting more. A LOT MORE!!!!!!!!!!

Kimber Warrior
Maybe another 1911 after the Warrior. One without a rail.
A 14.5" M4 put together with rail, TG vert grip, and flashlight
Another midlength upper
Beretta Storm 9mm
Another Sig, I'm thinking a P220 .45, and either a P225 or P228 in 9mm.
An FAL if I can swing it

Practice, practice, practice.

Finish Building my HK53 SBR...

I've got the parts, I just need the $$$ ...

1) Become a Democrat.
2) Work hard to ban all private ownership of firearms.
3) Dump all my firearms and ammunition into a lake.


Oh, I can't ever remember ever having kept a New Years resolution. Guess I'll just stay conservative, keep my forearms and just send all my ammo down range.

As bad as it sounds... stop buying black rifle. I need a new truck and I think my small collection rivals that of most college students. I need to stop buying rifles and live a little.....

Very cool, guys!

Well, the High Power and the .300 Win. mag. experimental should be done this week or next ( lord willin' and the creek don't rise ) so I have already lined up my next projects. I WAS going to build up a new mid length but I have decided to update my Colt Sporter 1(A1) Rifle and Sporter 2(A1) Carbine to fully fenced/proper front pushpin lowers. I think it's cheeper than building a new Pony/Hybrid mid length and will "up" me two full utility weapons. Essentially my A1 will be a FULL 100 percent A1 and my Carbine will be the same, essentially mimicing my LE6520 but in A1 style.

I will work VERY hard at preserving the old slabside recievers for you guys so that someone can pick up nearly perfect slabside Colt lowers for retro projects.

Next on line:

I will be re-recievering my Springfield Armory M1A rifles with LRB forged recievers. My Scout will also be getting a chrome lined barrel in the process. look for this later in the year. I will also be putting the recievers up for grabs. The Scout will be a nice treat as it has a NEARLY BRAND NEW BARREL....only 250 rounds down range after I had Springfield replace the original barrel that had chatter marks in the neck of the chamber. Both guns are, of course, gorgeous....

This will bring all of my weapons fully up to date/spec technologically.

During this time I'll be picking up LOTS of mags and accessories......no weekends for me this year!!!

Beside the expected more guns, ammo, mags, and optics when I get home, I want to start handloading and shoot in a few competitions. And get rid of this damned flinch I've developed...
