    Question What to do with a spare $700.00

    So, I happen to have a spare $700.00, and can't decide how to spend it. My options are:

    1. Ammo and spare magazines for my handguns
    2. A new handgun
    3. Training (defensive pistol class, and ammo for the class)
    4. An AR or AK (if I can find one for the money, which I doubt)

    What would you do if you were in my shoes? For the record, I own 3 handguns and a .22 rifle (if that influences your opinion).

    I would say number 3 unless you already consider yourself proficient. If you are proficient, consider a shottie for home protection or a high power rifle if you are a hunter.

    buy a nice 30-30 or 30-06 for hunting (winchester model 70 with walnut stock) or a nice new handgun would be nice...

    And die to find out there isn't, than live my life
    As if there isn't, and die to find out there is.

    basic stuff is 3 mags per gun and 100 rounds of SD and 500 practice ammo.
    2 bricks of 22 to start and 1 more for each additional 22

    laser if that pleases you,, but not for SD.
    a red-dot on a 22 for bullseye shooting---unless you have young, good eyes

    $700 would do you a Lee 4 hole turret and 5 calibers and all accessories.
    payback is usually 1000 hand made rounds.
    after that you doubly what you send down range for no extra money.
    3 hours during the week at the bench gets you 400 rounds of pistol and 100 rifle

    the market is getting tight for good shooting, nice looking swede m96's under 500
    and swiss k31's for ~$300
    reload for either for 40 cents a round. factory is $1.00

    ---by all accessories i am including powder, primers and 1000 each of 5 calibers leads bullets.

    I'd get a silencer for one of my guns.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    I'm partial to the shotgun myself. Buy yourself a Saiga 12, and then save up just a little bit more to buy the parts to convert it and add a couple md-20 drums to your collection. Nothing like a 12 gauge drum dump in 3-4 seconds. It's both fun at the range and useful for home defense, not to mention with all of the high quality after market parts available, it's also infinitely customizable to however you want to set it it up.

    I like the idea of a whole reloading setup, considering the same myself.

    I'm still struggling with grasping the "spare $700" concept - you are truly my hero

    Send half to KaboomKaboom and the other half to me. I will spend it wisely!


    Like mentioned above, consider a shotgun for home defense options or a rifle for the day ET decides to come and harvest our planet.

    a tank of gas ......


    If I was you I would go for the AK. You can pick one up and some ammo for it for less than 700.
