As much ammo as I can afford.......especially 12ga target loads and .22LR. I shoot those the most and can't find any!

Guess if it is not that much $$$$ it cannot hurt to have.

Kind of nice to have the option of shooting three cheap (normally) available calibers. I always wanted a 9MM AR but I will settle for the Tavor

I've always wanted a Mini-14 but always put it off (usually for some pistol). The Mini-14 is going to the top of the list ... but only for a fair price. I have enough that I won't pay more than things are worth ... I'll just go without and be happy with what I have.

A basic 30rd AR...something along the lines of the SW M&P 15 sport. For some reason this wasn't really high on my list when the were affordable.

Also on the want list is a Glock 26 and a .357.

The M&P 15 sports are GREAT guns for the price. My brother in law got his two days before this insanity began. Great little shooter.

A Colt 6920 or three, a Benelli Supernova and a Remington 700 in .308. Although I may not have to wait on the last one.

sadly nothing, I made a solemn vow that since my collection trippled in size in 012 that I would not buy a single gun in 2013 unless my financial situation really changes directions.

Teetering between a Beretta PX4 Storm or a 92FS.

A Browning Hi-Power Standard. Not that I couldn't find one now (the local Marine Exchange still had one the last time I looked), but I'd have a hard time finding ammo for it locally. I can't even find 9mm dies for a non-ridiculous price right now.

Once I can get 9mm dies and build up my stock of small pistol primers, the Browning won't be far behind.

I can't really say if the barrel is "all that", but from a recoil perspective I don't notice much difference between the .40 Berretta and the 9mm XdM. To me the biggest upside is how it feels in hand. It's a much more comfortable grip than the Sprinfields I have, not that they are bad, it's just the Berretta almost feels custom made for my hand.

The DA first shot seems a bit long, maybe just a tad stiff, but it's very smooth with no "gritty" feel to it. Follow up SA shots are short and crisp. Breakdown is similar to a glock, but for some reason a lot easier to pull off.

Plus it's purdy.... . I got the full size Inox version and bought it used out of my favorite LGS. As far as I could tell I don't think it had ever had a round through it and I picked it up complete as from the factory for $400. Figured that was a decent enough deal, pre-Madness of course.

I'd do it again, for whatever that's worth.

Lots of doo dads, M1A mag pouches, Natl match M1A spring guide, Natl match piston, recoil buffer, SEI Coast Guard Compensator, XS Products 50 rd M1A drum, over the side scop mount for AK74, vortex SPARC.

Might try to get rid of this Herters .308 and replace it with brass. Just learned what a bimetal jacket does to your barrel and I don't like it. Probably another tuna can of 5.45x39, some .40 and .45

Reloading starter kit of some make.

I'll probably buy a few 20 rnd mags, some reloading supplies (primers, powder and bullets) maybe pick up some empty brass somewhere.

I'd like to finally get an AR and maybe a .45 combat style semi auto. I am hesitant to get too many more different calibers because then I'll feel the need stockpile for them.

Oh, and about 10 cases of this:

Maybe an IWI Tavor as well or the Beretta ARX. This all depends on how things go with the bills that are being proposed by Swinestine and the others.
