I'm an easy target. Just get me a quality handgun and put it in my hand. Next second I'm filling out the forms.

I want another range toy...Probably another 1911

A Springfield XDs as soon as it comes out in 9mm. If not a Beretta 92 compact.

Already bought a couple of months ago, but doesn't arrive for another 3 weeks.

STI Eagle 5.0 in 9mm with competition package and a couple of other upgrade goodies from Dawson.

Point being that the answer is none until such point as I'm satisfied that I have enough ammo to keep what I have going or the supply resumes.

That said, probably the new Steyr L.

My wants:
M&P9 fullsize
Springfield XDs
Ruger lcr 357

I do not forsee me having the money for any of these before Md's new laws go into effect Oct 1st so I probably will never get any of these as I do not want to have to get a liscense to purchase.

So... What gun are you looking to buy next?

I am between a .40 Sig P229 Enhanced Elite, or a 1911 (I have a few 1911 models that I am eyeing). It is next to impossible to get a CCW in Cali, so this would be for HD and the range. I love the way the .40 P229 Enhanced Elite shoots and feels, but it is next to impossible to find for the compliance of California; that's why I might just go with a 1911 for the meantime.

I am thinking along the lines of a 1911 model, just not sure which brand just yet.

update..Thinking hard about the Para Elite Stainless. Sharp looking gun, good price point, made in my home state (nc)

Should receive it in about a month.
Sig 556 S.O.A.R

After that I really want one of Sig's X line 226's. I might have to let go of a few to get one though.

I'll know it when I see it.

I recently passed on a Colt Officer's Model Match in .22 LR and a lightly used Ruger 1911. The Colt was on the high side. The Ruger was priced right but I have other 1911s and I just didn't want another right at this time.

Whatever speaks to me when I walk up to the glass counter. I can't tell you how many times I walked into the gun store looking for a specific gun and walked out with something completely different.

I've have a short list of handguns I'm looking into. My next will most likely be a Compact 45, like the Glock 30SF or XDm 3.8. I desperately waiting for FNH to release the FNS-9c.
M&P45: Check
FNX-9: Check
Ruger SP101 4.2": Check
Ruger LCP: Check
FNH FNS-9c: waiting
Glock 30SF or Gen4: most likely next.

Dream Guns.
S&W 627 V-Comp
Ruger GP100 Wiley Clapp edition

For me it will have to be a Ruger SR1911. I will wait until the market gets some stability back and then start actively looking again.

I am thinking that I may either get a Springfield M1A, Para USA double stack 1911, SCAR 17 (I know they are expensive). I think the wife wants an AR so she can put some pink Magpul stuff on it, so I may get her one of those. Could always appreciate another .22LR, maybe a Henry Golden Boy. All this depends on what I find and the deal that I can score on it.

I definitely "need" to have a pump action shotgun: most likely a replica "Trench Gun" (I am in love with the look of it).

I am also in search of a SA/DA revolver. I am now evaluating a real new entry in the market: the Olmi Armi 963MF. Their site will be on line shortly according to what they told me at a recent gun expo in Brescia (Italy).

followers (i.e. toys to come sooner or later):
a second single action for CAS
a long range rifle (1000m and beyond capable)
a single shot 45/70 for completing the old wild west collection
some more ex-ordnance...

I definitely need another safe too!

4513T, with an 1886 Winchester right behind. There's just something about a .45 caliber anything.

Not looking to buy anything at the moment, of course, that doesn't mean I won't. I wasn't looking to buy anything when I came across my last 5 or 6 purchases.

One of three choices, haven't decided:

- Ruger SR40C
- Small .32, Keltec or Beretta.
- Snub revolver, either .32H&R or .38sp.
