    What are you saving up for?

    I was reading a Thread on here by Southchatham "Does the feeling of wanting another gun ever stop?" and it got me to thinking everyone is always saving for something: hand gun, rifle, holster, ammo, whatever. So just for fun what is it that you are saving up for? Whatever it is.

    Me, im saving for a S&W 686 4" for my fiancé for x-mas, and maybe a AK47 after that.

    No it never stops. I'm saving for a Springfield M1A. This one is going to take awhile.

    I'm satisfied with what I have, but I would like a few more Glocks. If I could have anything else, it would be a little land to rebuild on and have my own place to shoot.

    A Glock 19 with night sights, a Ruger .380 lcp or another small pocket carry gun just to name a couple. You will never have all the guns you want. It's impossible.

    I am sad to say, that my desires for any additional firarms died...

    It died the day I stepped over the boundary into the PRK, occupied territory where there are no citizens, just subjects.

    My boss and I cannot wait until our company moves us both back out of the PRK...

    I think my next one will be a nice 5 shot .38 that will handle the +P.
    Then a nice pump shotgun with an 18.5 barrel for keeping in the camper.
    Then............Your right, it never ends.....

    A 10/22 and some goodies to go with it for my next Appleseed. After that I'll be saving for an HK P30 (and a holster to go with it).

    A CCW is like a parachute; if you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again.

    Saving for? Well, as someone has already pointed out, sometimes saving for anything is hard to do nowadays. Wife and I started buying the grand kids Christmas stuff over a month ago so that won't hit all at once. Other than that, I mainly save for ammo. We shot up a few hundred rounds today at the range, and I'd just like to replenish that over the next month. Wife's little .22 six-shooter has a broken ejector rod I need to find a replacement for or fix, etc....... Save for gas money to get back and forth to work. If I had more guns, I'd be shooting up more ammo, and right now that would sort of be compounding the issue....of what to save up for next. LOL!

    You know, 'they' say hell IS in fact getting colder, so maybe it will not be too many more eons

    Also, I'm saving up for an M1A3 Abrams Main Battle tank (the one that has yet to be fielded). WITH working cannon, AND the Quick Kill active protection system they are working on...you know...just in case...

    Also, a wheel gun for pocket carry
