    Another Spend my $$$ thread.

    I have a little over 800.00 and don't know which direction I want to go.

    Do I get another "Evil Black Rifle" , another 1911 or something else.

    I already own.....

    Bushmaster M4

    2 Fn's

    Romanian underfolder AK

    Two 1911's one full size and one commander

    G23 and G20

    Colt detective special

    Winchester model 94 ae

    Mossberg 500a1

    2 .22 cal rifles

    2 hunting shotguns

    and then some...

    I'm thinking of another AR ,a basic full size rifle like the one I carried in the early 90's, or a high cap 1911 in 10mm. Other than that

    A hi-cap 1911 in 10mm? Bump up the budget.


    I'd probably just buy ammo.

    IMHO---Go with a EBR or an Assault style Rifle. You probably will always be able to obtain a 1911 platform (maybe not a double stack) but the AR will be worth a lot more in the long run.

    I can get into a Para P16 in .40 for around 600 and get a 10mm barrel later. I have ammo and I usually buy a little every payday.
    Plus I sold a gun for this money and I would hate to not have anything to show for it.

    Save it for an AR-10 later when you get more cash?

    Or something in .30-06

    I might be a bit less than objective but my vote is for ammo - of course you could wait till I restock a bit

    I have a p-16 and I like it allot. Get the stainless version. There are two or three on Gunbroker right now.

    I think it depends a lot on how and what you shoot. If you shoot rifles a lot, and seriously, I'd pick up another AK or AR. If you shoot rifles a lot, but not seriously, pick up a bunch of mags and ammo for what you shoot the most. If you favor pistols more, well, same deal (another pistol if you shoot 'em seriously, ammo if not).

    A person is justified in the use of deadly force, if such person reasonably believes deadly force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to such person or a third person.

    There are over 550 million firearms in worldwide circulation. That's one firearm for every twelve people on the planet. The only question is: How do we arm the other 11? (Yuri Orlov [Nicolas Cage] Lord of War)
