Every year for the past couple years I've spent part of my Permanent Fund Dividend on a new firearm (I love Alaska!). This year will be no exception, especially with an extra 1,200 as the so called "energy rebate." The PFD check is supposed to be as much as 2,000 dollars, so that brings the total to 3,200 dollars.
I still can't decide what to buy though. I just bought the Glock 17 that was on my list, so that's off. I'm really considering the Glock 21SF, but would also like to get an EBR before they're no longer available. At most I'm looking to spend 1,500 of it, and plan to save the rest for other things. Here are the top five guns on my list...
AR-15 carbine (Bushmaster, RRA, or DPMS)
Ruger GP100 4"
Springfield 1911A1 Black SS
Yugo AK-47 Underfolder
This will definitely be my last gun purchase of 2008, so I want to make sure I am happy with what I decide to buy. So far the AR-15 and G21SF are the top two, so I might just get both.
So many good choices, darn it!
