I just ordered a CZ-82 and 2 spare magazines.
Have a Random P-64 already and like the caliber.

I want to sell some of my 5 Chinese Model 56 SKS's that I bought in anticipation of the panic and use the profits to get another Walther P-1, a Star B and perhaps another CZ-83

Not much. I still want to sporterize my MN 91/30, get glass and a stock for my Stevens 200 .308, rebarrel my 7mm rem mag to .308 and install a scope on it, and I need to get started assembling my AR. I might try to find another 3rd generation Smith in .40 or .45. I might also get a new Charter arms bulldog. I bought an older on this year but I would like a newer one to take to the range.

Impossible to plan, I look for deals as they appear ... if I see something that fills a gap in the collection at the right price I get it. Just like hunting ... you go out into the wilderness and see what you can knock down, sure you might be looking for a nice Deer, but then something else might appear..

Hello lads, my first post here.

I would like a 1913 lithgow this year. Then I will be content for a long while.

Thanks for having me, I'm looking forward to joining in some enfield discussions if the opportunity arises.

I am going to start with an army helmet so it won't hurt when my wife grabs a skillet to clang my noggin for buying another gun.
No matter how many times you do it and nothing happens it only takes something going wrong one time to kill you.

Chinese SKS (used military), Chinese type 53 carbine (M/N), Yugo Model 59 SKS ( NOT 59/66, no granade launcher)
Hoping some other tuff shows up on the C&R list, but not gonna hold my breath with the current political atmosphere.

Hi all, my first post here.
I would like to pick up a MkII Cond or MkIV Cond SMLE this year.
Like Demo, look forward to joining in on any Enfield threads.

Look at that! More Lee Enfield collectors. Not sure what I'll be looking for this year, I'm more of a "spur of the moment opportunistic buyer". Just passed on a 1912 Sht .22 II the other day... already have one, and thought the money best left where it is in case I don't have the next rare one that comes up
There are some things that money cannot buy... For everything else there is Mastercard

I see an SVT in my future. It might not be this year, but I'll definitely be thinking about it all of 2013!!

Luckily, I bought my Enfield in 2012. Added a MAS 49/56 a few months later.

I would like to find a nice type 99 Arisaka this year. I like the looks of them.

"New" old guns

I finally put in an order with CMP for an M1 Garand, and I am trying to find a decent Walther P38 pistol.

Maybe a .22 conversion for my AR.
Anything that's a good deal and uses black powder.
Another Mosin, if I can find one at the right price.

My wife just bought me a 1903 Springfield for my B-day! It has a SN that places its manufacture in 1929 and a newer barrel with a stamp from 1944. So, now I'm moving on to trying to obtain an M1 Garand.

Well, I got a Ruger Takedown. I plan to get ammunition to feed it, but that's a daunting task lately.

Back in November, I told myself "I'll top off my personal store of ammo first of the year." So. Yeah.

Colt Police Positive Target 22LR
3-5 Steyr 1895s
An enfield in 308(sporter maybe)
A couple Nagant revolvers
A hipoint 9mm if I can find one for $125 or less
Maybe another K31
Any sporter I run across cheap

5THBATT, those No1's are very nice. My LE collection is primarily No4's and Mo5's, I do have a 41 Lithgow and 63 RFI. My holy grail No4 is a Maltby marked MkI*. Not sure of the exact numbers but I have read about 50K made with the *. No one seems to have a reason why.

This years list

VZ24-done X's2
Ruger 10/22TD
Krag carbine
another Garand maybe

Just picked up a Kar 88, thinking of getting the set
Kar 71, Kar 98A, Kar 98k
Finding a good k that I can afford will probably be the most tricky
I used to love being able to hit hard at 1000 yards. As I get older I find hitting a mini ram at 200 yards with the 22 oddly more satisfying.

Re: What are you planning to get in 2013?

Ammo... That's all I need lol.

A 1911 would be nice too, but I'd have to get it in 45 and that's just another caliber I'd have to stock and reload.
