Two grand would be a pretty good pop on a range gun but if I did I would likely buy another Colt Series 70 1911 frame in .45 ACP or a nice 9mm. Another gun I would like which I don't have is an older clean Browning Hi-Power. Always liked the Hi-Power but never hung on to one of them.

Get 4-6 Milsurp's from Classicfirearms.com, and a bunch of ammo?

Another vote for something in the $500-600 range and a lot of ammo. If a semi-auto include at least 5 magazines.

I would buy a Coonan, CZ tac sport orange, or a Freedom Arms revolver.

2K to spend

ruger blackhawk convertible single action revolver, one each in 45lc/acp and 357/38/9mm. each costs under $700 new and you can shoot the full lineup of centerfire handgun ammo.

Range gun?

Most likely a Lithgow bolt action in .308, with $900 of scope on it.


Either that, or two Remington V3 Tac-13's... one for each hand

Four Hi-Point C9's
Three Taurus G2's
Two Ruger EC9's
And a case of Winchester White Box in a pear tree

Coonan! Seriously though, they are a delight to shoot and garner tons of attention at the range.

You aren't getting a Sig P210 for that, unless its a pretty rough military spec model.

If you want an American Sig Sauer P210A, that's a different story and a different gun. No thanks. I'll stick to the real deal.

Same here, or a HK P7 because they are just SO cool to shoot (I have two that will go to my grave if need be.)
Great choices. However, if you want a real Sig P210, you'll be going over that amount.

While I think there are better range guns for $2000, a classic BHP is always a beautiful option and a nice investment.

Find an older Smith & Wesson Performance Center pistol. Some of them can still be had for $2000. They are high quality and very accurate with the Briley bushing.

I'm talking guns from the real Performance Center before it shut down. These days, S&W just slaps the name on guns with some slight alterations from the standard assembly line...








Something from the Sig Sauer Mastershop in Germany would be a great option also. Some can still be had for $2000...
