2013 What did you buy and keep.

OK boys and girls how many new guns did ya buy in 2013 and what are you projections for 2014?

Myself added another Tula 91/30
Built 4 AR15 ‘s and kept one
Added another Lee Enfield BSA 303
380 Tanfoglio as a project gun – it works kinda

As for 2014 I want – no I need another K98 and another Enfield
I need to add another 45acp just because you can never have enough.
Maybe this new year I will finally buy a 454 Casual I have always wanted and / or a 44 Desert Eagle
I’ll start another AR build just not sure what caliber yet.

I also bought a Tula M91/30 (1932 hex) w/ star.
Thinking of buying a Ruger American .308 cause I want to do reloads for the .308 and the .308 is on sale for 299 but they are out of them. If one comes in before the sale expires and I can get my hands on it, I will get it. Many of them shoot 1/4-1/2 moa an 100 Hope I don't get one that shoot 2 at 100

I added an M1 Garand, Steyr M95, and Winchester M12 shotgun to my collection. I also built an AR 15.

I already paid for a G19 that I'll be able to pick up in January, so that's happening in 2014. Aside from that, I'd like to see if I can get my hands on a Sig 2022 and build a second AR. I'm sure I'll end up adding stuff to my collection as well, but I don't really know what I'll get yet.

Bought two and sold none. New additions to the family include a S&W M27-2 with 5" barrel and S&W M13-4 with 3" barrel. As for what 2014 holds, well is suppose I'll just have to wait and see what tickles my fancy (I don't typically go looking for specific guns, I just seem to stumble across something that speaks to me).

Bought an M1 Garand, FNS-40, and an AR-15. Sold one AR for a good profit and bought another on the cheap and fixed it up and had nearly enough left over to buy the FNS.

Planned for 2014: LR-308, 870 Marine Magnum 12ga, Ruger SR1911, AR pistol, AK-47 and probably some other stuff.

I sold one to buy a Gen 4 G17. Planned for 2014? Mostly gunsmith work. S-12 needs a shorter barrel with a pinned/welded MOLOT brake, WASR-10 needs new furniture and front end work, Bubba'd M1903A3 and Lee-Enfield No. 4 Mk1 need to be restored. If I buy something it will probably be a bubba'd Mosin-Nagant project gun. Having too much fun with tools and I have too many projects.

ETA: I need a G26 before summer. NEED.

Bought a used Savage 111 in 7mm Rem Mag. With scope (piece of crap that went in the garbage!!) and bipod.

Hi Point pistol in 40S&W, came with holster.

This year selling my reproduction Colt Walker, and a Lyman new model Army in .44. Might sell the Hi Point.

Want to buy a Rock Island Armory .45ACP with the 4.25" barrel.

Come tax time I may try to buy another rifle. Not sure what yet. Thinking of a lever gun in .357Mag. with a red dot sight on it.

I brought a Springfield XDM(45), a Ruger SR22, a Henry US survival rifle and a Mossberg 500.

In 2014, I would like to by a Remington 700 BDL and maybe something else.

In 2013 I bought:

Glock 21 Gen 3
Glock 19 Gen 4
Kahr CW40
Ruger p95
Smith & Wesson M&P 45c

The only one I did not sell in 2013 was the M&P and I've been thinking about selling it. I have a habit of liking a gun when I buy it but a few months later finding something I hate about it and selling it to fund something else.

Didn't buy any guns in 2013.

I did buy a shoulder holster for my Cimarron Thunderer, some odds and ends for when I finally get around to shooting my BP revolver and a GI web sling.

Sold an EMP 9MM.

It was a slow year, firearms-wise.

Bought a house, though.

S&W JM 625 4" barrel. had to sell a S&W 66-2 to get it and now I am trying to buy the 66 back. The sale was to a friend that has yet to shoot the 66 and we did the deal in March.

Bought myself a rifle that I have wanted for a very long time, a Springfield Armory M1 Garand from the CMP. I am still waiting to receive it though, I expect I will have it sometime mid January.

I also kept all of my current guns, I never plan on selling any of them.

As for what 2014 brings, not sure. I'm more of an impulse buyer so I'll just wait and see I suppose .
I don't always go to the range, but when I do, I prefer dosAKs.

They say 5 out of 4 people are bad at math, but what do I know?

A WW2 Sauer 38H. None were produced after the Soviet invasion. The 38H looks like the modern Sig 232.
A second M-1 Garand (H&R), also from the CMP. They are the only "Garand strangers" I will ever trust.

A second SKS: the Yugo M59, which was mfg. with No grenade launcher!

Without a really good ammo supply already on hand, none would have been acquired.

2013 was a slow year on gun acquisitions for me as the wife and I bought a house so most of the extra money went there. Despite that, I acquired:

Remington 1911 R1S
S&W 22A

I did not sell or get rid of anything as a general rule, I keep every gun I buy.

As for 2014, I already have 2 on the way:

Savage Axis in 308 to use as a build
Complete AR lower
I like guns.

Came home from deployment in November and picked up my preordered "unit" SIG Scorpion .45, and then bought an XDs, and then a 92FS. Already have a buyer for my Gen4 G27 which the XDs has replaced for carry.

Bushmaster AR, Don't have it anymore, Gave it to my dad.

Beretta 92G, purchased used, Still shooting it.

Beretta M9, Purchased new, still in box, never shot, can't find a holster to fit the rail.

Remington 870, 20 ga. youth, pink camo, wife shot it this bird season, daughter will shoot it next year!

Ruger LC9, to replace my old LC9 that I gave to my best friend (he needed a gun for his truck and kept putting off the purchase!) Carry the gun every day!

Browning Silver Hunter Micro Midas 20 ga., my wife will be shooting it for birds in 2014!

Used Springfield M1A1! Just bought it this fall! Going to take one of kraigwy's military rifle classes with it this summer!

Those are my purchases for 2013 and disposals for 2013!

Have a happy new year, and good luck with your acquisitions!

Slow year in 2013 for me. I did sell an AR in January for a little bit of profit. Other than that, nothing new. Spent most of my firearms budget (which was virtually nil) on reloading.

2014 will be a little different. I can't buy guns left and right but I have to buy at least one for my oldest girl. She wants to hunt next year and it is that time. I have to pick her up a youth shotgun. If I'm lucky enough to have the money laying around to get one for myself It'll either be a Savage bolt project build or a .357 lever gun.
