    Hmm...
    I've been terribly tempted by one of the Beretta 81s that are available. Just for the fun of it.
    A P365XL...which will immediately have a RDS mounted on it.
    Maybe a Beretta 686 shotgun.
    But the Great Big Want item is a cased pair of Manton flintlock duellers. .50 caliber or less. (For those who don't follow antiques, this is about a $40K wish)

    More primers, powder, projectiles. And 22 rimfire. Ammo cans too.
    A mold or two for casting bullets. (TBD on future purchases)
    Thinking about a rifle but have no decision on that yet.
    A pistol in 45acp, but have not decided on what make.
    Most likely will purchase another large bore revolver, but haven't decided on that either. Leaning on something between my 44 & 460. BFR? We'll see.....
    Found an Anaconda yesterday but was priced WAAAaaaaayyyyyyyyyy outta my league.
    I'll buy it when I see it. (them)

    At the beginning of the year there was a thread asking what is on your list for 2019, I said that I was going to slow down and not get much of anything. So much for that lol, this year I have busier than the previous two years combined getting things. Every time I go in the local gun store they have a trade in that catches my eye, there are a couple saved sellers on gun broker that keep listing goodies.

    But I'm have been thinking one of the new manufactured Inland M1 carbines is on the agenda. Every time I see a nice GI they get bid up way high just saw a very nice Underwood go for $1600.00 just minutes ago on GB , thinking a new Inland with no collector value to shoot thousands of rounds through it in time and not wear out a collectible real GI carbine.

    I wonder why Springfield armory won't make a FAL, they use to, now they are "pre-ban" collectibles. Why can't FN U.S.A do a FAL, they make other rifles already. DSA is about the only game in town now, I have one and is good quality but there is no competition out there on a FAL thus if you don't pay for a DSA price you don't get a FAL. .

    Money towards an AR9 or Hardy siding for the garage.

    The latter would probably be more worthwhile given my inventory. The prior would certainly put a bigger smile on my face.

    I'm hoping that a Henry pump in 22lr is in my near future.

    Dear Santa,

    I haven't been the best behaved boy this year, but at least I didn't do anything to get my name listed in NICS. So please, all I want for Xmas this year are:
    • A SIG Sauer P229 M11-A1
    • A CZ 97 BD
    • A Beretta 92x
    • About 100 acres of remote property to set up a private outdoor shooting range
    I hope this isn't too much to ask. I promise to be on my extra best behavior next year.

    The only gun I am considering is the Keltec CMR-30 rifle so I can pair it with my PMR-30 pistol.

    Nothing, really... need to change that.


    Maybe I will give one of those Henry single shots a try.

    -Ruger Mk.IV 22/45 Lite
    -Suppressor to go with the above
    -Ruger GP100 .44 Special
    -Ruger Blackhawk .45 Colt/.45 Auto
    -Ruger PC Carbine

    See, I'm real easy to get gifts for! Just stop at the Ruger Store and put them in Santa's sleigh! Don't even have to bother with wrapping them!

    I pretty much have everything I ever wanted firearms wise, been stocking up on reloading supplies and .22's to hedge my bets on the next election.
    Of course the Son of a gun's always come up with something new every year to tempt me with. This year it's the Sig P365 XL and I'll probably pop for one when they come out with a thumb safety model. Then there's the 6.5 Creedmoor bolt gun that I would really like even though I would likely use it maybe three time a year and then I'd have to buy dies, bullets and brass. Better to stick with my other 6 rifles and save the dineros. ;)

    I found one slightly used a few years back at a local gun shop. It was their shorter barrel 475/480 chambering. I don't regret this purchase and it is much more comfortable to shoot than the Ruger SRH that I have. The thing is like a clock with perfect function.

    As far as a wish list goes..... I would like to get a Ruger LCR in 38spl. Have the 22 version. It would be a carry gun for me and will fit in other holsters I already own. Would like to get a CZ in 22 WMR with really nice wood when I find one. I look at shops that carry CZ's from time to time, but I have no interest in ordering one or buying through an online seller.
