    Yup, for life!

    Seriously, 6 kids, almost 50, and I have small hands

    that eliminates almost every full size or doublestack firearm. Can't buy a custom built 1911 so on my list is the Springfield GI Champion. I'll mod it to end up with the basic commander sized .45 I want with just the right options.

    Then I call it good and work on "refining"; like getting my K9 front strap checkered, getting a suppressor for my .22's, you know....:)

    I applaud your desire to get into the Appleseed Project! At my first one I could only stay for Day One, but at my second I was thrilled to make Rifleman. My strong suggestion is to start off with a 10/22 and get your feet wet with all the challenges of training and NPOA with low-cost ammo, then step up to centerfire. I'm currently out of commission with a back repair healing up, but I hope to make to another Appleseed and dig my heels in with either one of my ARs or a borrowed M1A.

    Hoo-leeey Crap! I would love to buy that for her. She would freakin love it. She has shot my buddy's Ultra Raptor....Loved the 1911. Not sure if she'll be getting a Wilson before me

    That thing is cool. My wife didn't like the XD9sc I got her, so I traded it for a Ruger GP 100 6 inch. I'm just going to wait for her to tell me what she wants.

    Scuba, good idea. My wife likes my xd9sc...but wants an SP101 now. Funny, I almost bought her one a few months back and decided not to. If I picked it she probably wouldn't like it...let her pick it and she'll love it. OK...sorry everyone, not trying to jack the thread.

    My next thre purchases (in order of finding an example used at a good price): S&W 65 round butt 3" barrel, Marlin 1894CSS (might need to go new on that one), and a SxS 12 ga (double trigger, internal hammer, ejectors). Reloading components are also on the list. After that I'd rather spend some $ modifying what I have with a good smith, smoothing it up and making the best of it.

    My "at some point in the probably distant future" list: S&W M&P340, Caspian titanium Commander frame and stainless slide, factory fit and assembled with good components by a quality smith.

    Ah, so many guns...so little time.

    Anyhow, I'm saving up my pennies for a Ruger 22/45 (priority) and also for a Glock 36.

    Great topic, I am pretty satisfied with my collection. Being a southpaw shooter and having to adjust to right handed firearms all my life, I am now on the hunt for left handed firearms. A left handed Randall 1911 for EDC would suit me just fine but the collectors have them priced accordingly. Take care...Jeff

    Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.

    If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.

    The only gaping hole in my collection is a shotgun... leaning toward a Benelli M4...
