    Need some help here

    As always I have a burning desire for more guns. Here are three that I want, help me decide the first to get. This is a serious list, and I mean it when I ask for your help, all three of these will be got at some point, but the first is up to you.
    Another Glock 19 Gen 3 (love it so much I want another before gen 3's are too hard to find)
    Ruger Single Six .22/.22 mag combo with blade front sight
    Ruger SR 556 gas piston AR (I like my gas piston keltec su-16 so much I want another gas piston .223)

    Glock 19.....ammo is very easy to get and cheap, 9mm is always a good defensive round too. I have a .22 rifle (Marlin 795) I use for hunting small game. I don't really see any use for a .22 in a handgun unless it's just for a fun target shooting gun. Again, ammo is plentiful and cheap. The Ruger 556 is WAY out of my affordability and off my radar so I won't even mention that one.

    Dude, pull 'it' out and go get what you want. Can't help you, because I do not read minds or cards or prentend to know what you want.

    Seriously, what you decide on will be good for you.

    I like redundancy in a carry gun, if your primary need to go to the smith you have a spare. If you use it the Police are going to have it a while, you'll need a spare. I vote for a 2nd G19 ......

    I have the Ruger single six, with both cylinders, and they are a blast.
    Last weekend we had the 7 yr. old shooting it and on the paper @ 7 yards. They are quite accurate with both, but especially the .22 mag.

    This gets my vote, then followed by the G19, or maybe the G26, and use the G19 mags in it, then the Ruger 556.

    Single Six is a lot of fun. I had one and traded it in a deal I couldn't pass up (for a S&W .38). Now I have one in H&R .32 mag and it's just as much fun as the .22 was!

    I'd pick whichever is in shortest supply - since there's such a rush on guns right now, the supply won't improve before November 6 (and I'm not feeding that notion, just acknowledging it).

    I think that kind of narrows it down to the Ruger carbine. I think you'll always be able to find the Glock you want (I'm including the used market), ditto for the Single Six.

    I had a G19 since 1992......2 years ago I traded it for a G30 (virtually the same size). Everything else just seemed clunky........ 9mm?? ehhhhh not interested thanks.

    its good to have a wish list --keep the $$ safe till a deal happens for one on your list.

    for CCW you have a primary; do you have a secondary? one that you pracatice weak hand, carry off side or when you need deeper cover.
    or as sgb points out--if its in for fixin or upgrades

    so perhaps keep an eye out for that type of gun....many like the 642

    Hey thanks, that was super 'helpful'. Glad you felt the need to spend 30 seconds typing out the fact that your to cool and manly to answer an easy question.

    I'm with you on the G19. Of course I would be. Thing is....they may be kinda hard to find since what I'm hearing is that some of those who went for a 4th gen are going back to the 3rd gen pistols. Glocks may be plentiful, but there's never a time like now. Your other wants could probably be found on overstock.com (okay...just kidding). If you hit the popular searches like I do almost every day.....you can come up with good deals on any of them. Judging the market and watching the market keeps one privy to developments and availability. You never want to pay too much, or top dollar for used at new price. If you decide on the G19 as your next buy, PM me. I can get one directly from Glock at LEO price. Would need to go through a FFL. AZ happens to be one of those taxable states by the way. We'd have to crunch the numbers.
