I'm assuming everyone is referring to 2013. Unless a really nice 2.5 inch SW Model 19/66 shows up, I think my only purchase this upcoming year will be HD shotgun.

It really depends on how funds look as we approach the end of the year. I've been looking to buy a 22lr rifle like the M&P15-22 or Mossberg Tactical22, and a 9mm pistol for carry and range use, probably an M&P9 or SR9c.

A G19 would be great too, but they seem to be always overpriced unless I buy police trade-ins

Depending on my funds, my first 1911. Local Cabellas had a brand new Cimarron 1911 with a parkerized finish for $399.95.

Earlier this year, I bought a S&W Model 21-4 in 44 Special and love it! Smoothest double action trigger pull ever!

Hoping to squeeze in a 870 before the year is over. Already purchased 2 pistols this year. (Glock 19 and Walther PPQ).

Planning on 2 pistols next year and building my first AR.

Nothing. Ask again in 2017 or so.

So far this year I have bought a Smith and Wesson MP 15 22 MOE with scope, rail covers, and grip, a Smith 37 airweight, a Glock 23 gen 4, and a Sig 229 extreme about a month ago. Next up is most likely a Sig 1911.

I've been trying to figure out how to finance a polymer 9mm. If I can get the funds together, and find a good deal on one, I'd like to buy a Ruger SR9c.

If by this year you mean the remainder of 2012, I really don't think any after thes several I've bought so far.
If you are looking into 2013, I still have my top list, and hope to check off a few.
Charter Arms Bulldog-Just always wanted one. Although I have my CCW needs well covered it may also be added to the rotation.
Taurus Tracker 992 4"SS-Another 22 rimfire range toy with the option of 22 WMR using the interchangeable cylinder.
Kel-Tec PMR30-If the availability improves, and the prices drop to what they should be. Not MSRP or above as they are now in my area.
Ruger Charger-Absolutely no reason. They just look like fun!
CZ SP01 Shadow-Who doesn't need another 9MM?
Whatever the C&R millsurp market brings up at a reasonable price.

Either a large frame revolver like a 686 or GP-100 (only handgun type I don't have yet) or maybe a real nice compact 9mm like a H&K P2000sk - don't really need it but compact 9s seem the most practical to me and might as well buy a good one.

I didn't buy any new guns but I did blow money on suppressors. I'm getting the process started on my third one now.

I feel I have my bases covered, HD, EDC. hunting, etc. So I'm after a few that I'm really wanting just because. That would be a Sig P229 Elite Dark and a 9mm 1911, probably an EMP unless I can find a nice commander size, then a Dillan XL650.

I want my first 1911 ... either a Kimber Stainless Pro Carry or a Colt XSE LW Commander (still undecided but my gun fund is about 1/2 way there)

OOps, forgot one on my short list
Ruger LCR-Just haven't yet decided 38+P or 357! Again, just 'cause I want one.

I don't own a Glock yet but think I want one. A Glock 26 looks about right.

I may have to look into one of the FNS'... I love FNH as a manufacturer and can imagine that their first striker fired gun should be fun to have.

Other than that maybe some sort of compact cc piece.

Get the Colt!! I've owned a Kimber Pro Carry II and it was 100% reliable after I found JHPs that it liked. But Kimbers can be picky about HPs. I also had to redo the trigger on my Kimber to get a good 4lb trigger pull.

I just bought my first and only pistol for this year. It's also my first Colts. I got a Colts LW Commander XSE. It's very well made, fit and finish are great, and accurate out of the box. But the trigger on mine runs 6.5 to 8 lb pull and it's not consistent. So next week I'll be putting in a Cylinder and Slide Tactical II 4lb trigger kit and replacing the series 80 parts with Brownells Series 80 Trigger Pull Reduction Kit. So it should have a nice 4lb trigger pull after that. I redo all of my 1911s to make sure they have a 4lb trigger pull. I won't go any lighter than that for a carry gun.

I bought 500 rds of 185 grn JHPs at a gun show a couple of years ago and none of my 1911s would feed them reliably. The Colts ate them without a problem and they shot accurately also!!

I am hoping to add another 50 to my collection. I am eyeing a Barrett M107 or a McMillan Tac50. Besides that maybe a HK MR556 or a PS90.
