I have about 2500$ left to blow this month on toys.

I've narrowed it down to either

One galil 308 like new in box, pre-ban, pre-89, SA import.

OR

One inrange bulgy left folder Krink SBR and one AR pistol SBR.

I'm torn here. Can only go with one or the SBR's. What would you do? Go for fun or future value?

Galil.

Future value?
Come on - thats BS.
No one, and I mean, no one, ever sells a gun that is worth something.
We love them too much.
Guys who own MGs?
When they sell their "investment" they use the money to buy another MG.

Go for what you will enjoy most.

Go for the Galil, just because I want one

Get whichever one you enjoy shooting more. There are much better things to invest in than guns if your purpose is to make money.

well I caved. I'm gonna go with the galil and an AR pistol-then-SBR.

I need to go on a diet anyway. I could lose 100 pounds and still need to lose a couple to get healthy, so a couple of months shooting a two-ton gun and not having any money for food oughtta do it!

I absolutely would love to have a Galil...(and every other evil rifle, for that matter!). The more Shumer, Feinstein, Kennedy and that crowd hate it the more I want it!!!

With that said, I tend to buy guns that are not so collectible that I feel like I shouldn't shoot it.If you are going to buy a Galil just to put in the gun safe, I'd suggest buying a shooter instead. If you are in that tax bracket where you can buy a $2500.00 preban and take it to the range, then go for it! The Galil is one rifle with a high COOLNESS FACTOR.

I cashed out some prebans because they ended up being "safe queens"...but then again I'm not in a high tax bracket!

If you shoot it a lot you are hurting it's "investment" value. Have a KB and your investment is scrapmetal. I sold a Herstal FN FAL in 05 because I got tired of it sitting in the safe. Basically doubled my money. Big deal. In the 20 years that rifle sat in the safe I could have made a 100 times that much doing about anything else [ buying and selling motorcycles or cars etc ].

Flip a coin. If you are happy with the result, buy that weapon. If you feel the urge to "do two out of three", buy the other weapon.
