My list is quite...extensive, and I frequently venture off of it.

I don't know if they'll be my next guns or not, but the M1917 and HK P2000 LEM are pretty high on my list. I'll likely be completing my next AR build as my soonest acquisition as I already have everything except for a trigger.

Smith & Wesson .32 auto
Winchester 1873 new reproduction
CZ 75 in nickel

I know what I want for sure, I just don't have the funds for all of it yet

In random order:
- 12gauge shotgun (Mossberg500 or Keltec KSG)
- 308 Semiauto (FN SCAR17S)
- RIA 1911 Tactical
- DD M4V1
- Arsenal SAM7SF

If I somehow hit the Lotto, add the Barrett M107 to that list...

Your next 3 to 5 gun acquisitions planned?

Yep, that's the question. Just a snapshot in time of some people's "in the market for" positions...
HA! No.

I have perceived needs covered. Firearm purchases are kind of a "random wander" through what's available, with an eye to improving the quality of what I have available to me.

I have in mind to find a Charter .44 Bulldog (or Taurus .44 snub, whatever model that is),just because the idea of a revolver chambered in a rimmed round with .45 ACP ballistics is interesting.

Beyond that? No idea.

I also try to keep a rein on covetousness.

I'm on the lookout for only one; a Jager 1873 revolver, 5 1/2" barrel, .38-40 caliber. Imported by EMF and Mitchell Arms a few decades back.

Fortunately, for my bank account anyway, my short list is getting shorter.
Unfortunately for my bank account, my short list has gotten shorter.

1. Taurus 992 22LR/22Magnum revolver
2. Charter Arms Bulldog Stainless 44 Spcl. snubbie
3. CZ 75. Either 75BD, or SP01. Haven't decided yet
4. Stevens Model 59 410 bolt action shotgun. Just because that was my very first "all my own" shotgun when I was a kid. The original long gone, before I realized the importance of rule #1.

Only one more type will be bought (now age 59): a first "carry" handgun. The only handgun-so far-has been the WW2 Sauer 38H.

It will soon be a Sig 232 for "carry". If it's any larger, or I don't really like the style or it lacks a decocker for a Lefty, then it would not be carried anyway.

I'll pick up a brass frame navy 44 from Cabellas next week (contrary to some opinions brass frames are quite sufficient with light loads), especially at $150.
I also want a Cimarron open top 38, maybe this year yet.
Cry HAVOC! and let loose the chihuahuas of war.

My wife told me that I can't have too many guns, I agreed and told her I can never have too many guns...and then the trouble began

My next planned acquisitions, in no particular order:

1. A S&W 686

3. An AR-15
4. A Glock
