1. CZ 452/455 FS
2. 20" AR in 5.56 (probably a M-16A2 clone)
3. A two stamp AR in .300 AAC (SBR and suppressor)
4. A 4" .357 DA wheel gun, haven't decided between Ruger or S&W
5. Haven't really thought this far ahead, but maybe something like a CZ 75

I'm always on the lookout for certain guns but I'm not searching for them. I usually look for examples that are priced low because they're ugly, dirty, a little rough, weird chambering, fixed choke, etc. Partly it's the bargain hunter in me and partly I'm drawn to older guns that have some character marks.

If the price was right I wouldn't be able to pass on these:

Rem. 1100 LT-20
Ruger #1 International in 7x57 or .308
Browning O/U
Win. 94 (especially in .32 WS)
Marlin 336 in .35 Rem.

I don't have any handgun acquisitions planned but I never know what will strike my fancy. Come to think of it, a pinned and recessed Model 66 would be nice...
To a much greater extent than most mechanical devices, firearms are terribly unforgiving of any overconfidence, complacency or negligence.

My current plan for the next guns I want to purchase:

Springfield XDm, probably the 4.5 inch, probably .40 cal, possibly .45. This will be my primary home defense handgun, taking the place of the one I have now.

.22 rifle, semiautomatic (not available at Dick's Sporting Goods), probably a Ruger, Marlin, or Remington

.22 pistol, semiauto, probably a Ruger Mark III, Browning Buck Mark, or Ruger SR22. Others possibly, if I find a good deal

Semi-auto rifle in a service caliber, probably Ruger Min-14, possibly Auto-Ordnance M1 Carbine

Shotgun, 12 gauge or 20 gauge, primarily intended for home defense. Mossberg 500 most likely

Lastly, a smaller pistol for concealed carry. Was thinking of a Kel-Tec PF-9 or Ruger LC9, but now thinking about the Springfield XDs

Sorry, that's six, not five. But that pretty much completes my plan. A lot of the guns I currently have will be sold concurrently with these purchases.

1) Beretta 92FS or M9A1
2) Browning High Power
3) Ruger 22/45 or Browning Buckmark
4) Ruger Vaquero .357 5.5" barrel or some Ruger single action revolver

The first two are classics, I don't need them but I'd be collecting for the historical interest, and maybe they'd become favorite 9mm handguns.

For 3), due to the continuing frustration finding 22LR, there's no point right now, and I already have four different 22LR handgun options.

4) I have a heritage Rough Rider in 22LR and really enjoy shooting it, so something better quality might be fun.

Mine generally aren't planned. They just happen. But when the next one 'happens' I'd prefer it were a pre-safety 336 Marlin in 35 Remington.

Beyond that? No plans.

I need another S&W 22 revolver,,,

I love pairing rifles with an appropriate handgun.

I have paired a Henry Acu-Bolt .22 rifle,,,
With a Rossi 511 .22revolver.

I also have an H&R Sportsman .22 rifle,,,
With an H&R 929 Sidekick .22 revolver.

Another is a Mossberg 702 Plinkster .22 rifle,,,
With a Ruger 10/22 Mark III .22 pistol.

I have two more rifles I want to pair with a handgun,,,
One is a CZ-452 Military Trainer,,,
The other is a Savage Mk-II F.

I'm thinking a Model 17 S&W .22 revolver,,,
That would pair up very nicely with the CZ-452.

It's completely open what I will get,,,
To pair up with the Savage rifle.

A lot of it will depend on what shows up,,,

I don't plan my gun purchases, they just happen when the mood is right.

Yes I do plan them.

1. A .22 Rifle - More than likely a Savage MKII

2. A S&W 642 for occasions I need something more discreet than the Glock 19.

3. An AR-15 platform rifle - I am likely going to try and build one to spread the cost out over several years.

4. A rifle in 30.06 or .308 with a laminate stock to hunt with. I love the sporterized Mauser my grandfather built for me and it is a great gun to hunt with; but it would be nice to have something I was less worried about banging around in the woods. I haven't looked much but the Savage Axis and Ruger American both come to mind as good options.

5. A semi-Auto shotgun; quite possibly a Browning Maxus.

1- A nice subcompact 9mm for deep CC
Frontrunners are a SS CS-9 S&W or one of the 3.5 barrel gen 3 SS variants
The Nano or a Glock 26 . The Sig 229 would be the frontrunner if were not SAO.
2- A 5 inch barrel or more 10mm
#1 is a S&W 1006 or 1026 to pair with my current 1066
One of the 1911 variants that have a ramp barrel and solid case support likely a Kimber or Rock Island.
3- A S&W standard not TSW 4013 to convert to a subcompact 10mm.
4- a nice older inexpensive ( under $400) High Power to mod into a EDC/IDPA shooter. Real Browning or FN would do fine. Match barrel, 3 dots, slick the trigger, remove the mag safe, custom high polish black finish no bite hammer checker rosewoods ect. Would be carried ( as I carry my current MK III adjustable sight HP) cond 1 cocked and locked strap under hammer as John Browning intended.

My "fun money" is pretty tigh right now due to some unexpected expenses so it may be awhile before I purchase another firearm. In fact, I'll probably buy a new gun safe first because mine is inadequate for what I have. After that, maybe a Walther PPQ 9mm and a Kel-Tec Sub 2000 in 9mm.

Unlike some, I do sorta' buy on impulse. I have purchased some of my favorite guns like that.

Will begin with the first of five, whatever it may be. Then I will buy the second of the five, and so on, in that order. Let us know if you need more help deciding how to buy in the proper sequence.

It does me absolutely no good to say, "X will be my next gun". Everytime I start looking for one make, model, or type of gun, I wind up buying something completely different.

The last example was a couple of weeks ago, when I went into my local gun store thinking of buying a shotgun, and wound up with a pristine Smith & Wesson Model 15-4. But the price was right, and I couldn't resist.

As my basic shooting needs are covered, there isn't anything I really have to have, so I can wait until I find a good deal on something I like. I don't currently own a .44 magnum handgun, and would like to find a Ruger Super Blackhawk; I would like to find a Remington 700 or equivalent in .300 H & H, just to have; mebbe a nice 12 gauge double barrel.

I'll make an accurate and infallible prediction of what everybody here's next five guns will be:

New topics for the various firearm specific sub-forums.

No, you don't owe me anything and yes, I'm always glad to help.

My next purchase will probably be a Marlin 30-30. After that a 1911 of some sort. Also interested in a Tavor.

I've already bought 3 firearms this year so I think I better not press my luck with the wife and wait till next year to get anything else.

Right now the only two I am really looking at are a Smith & Wesson M&P 45c and an M1 Garand. I've been wanting another M&P 45c pretty much since I sold the one I had and I joined a group that gives me access to the CMP's Garands so I want to buy one in the near future.
