    For this year? Not much, maybe a RDS for my Glock.

    Future guns? I've been toying with building a .308 AR while saving for something by Wilson or STI, not sure exactly which model (years out still so there'll be new options by the time I'm ready anyhow).

    A few extra magazines, powder, primers, brass, 300 Blackout upper, Ruger 6702 SR1911, Third Gen S&W. Oh, and for my wife to get the job she wants after graduation. The list of wants is longer than that, but I'll stop there.

    Found one old milsurp and put it on lay-away. It'll be my birthday present.

    And a truck.

    After sixty plus years of collecting/accumulating, my list is defined by what do I really want to keep/hand down. Way too many to shoot regularly. Blessed beyond belief. Kids are gonna crap at the inheritances. Gotta think it out so the premier stuff goes to them.

    Got one. Good choice.

    I’d love a used Beretta 686 Silver Pigeon for skeet shooting.

    I don't have a short list...

    In no particular order:

    1. Colt SSA clone in .357 mag with the 7.5" inch cavalry length barrel.
    2. Rossi 92 lever action with the 20" barrel in .357
    3. Ruger PCC with the M-lok forend
    4. A Glock 19
    5. A stainless, full size 1911 70s series in .45acp
    6. A Glock 20 sf
    7. An AR-10 (probably build out a PSA AR-10 lower)
    8. An AR-15 pistol with 9 or 10" barrel. And a 300 B/O upper with it
    9. A Savage Mk II FVSR
    10. Thompson Center Compass in 6.5 Creedmore
    11. Thompson Center Compass in .223

    I'd love a ton more reloading components

    And probably most importantly: a 22 suppressor, 308 suppressor, and 45 suppressor

    As far as guns are concerned I pretty much have what I want with a couple of exceptions. I would like to get a Ruger mini-14 to be honest. I don’t know why except it would be fun to bang away at steel plates with one.

    It looks like Santa's going to give me an Ishapore 2A1 for Christmas - and maybe an old truck... .

    I recently decided to knock a few off my shortlist, to make it even shorter.

    1. Kriss Vector
    2. PS90
    3. S&W .460XVR
    4. CZ Shadow 2 (B&B)
    5. JM Stamped Marlin Lever .45LC or .357M

    4 down, 1 to go.

    Parts to finish projects.

    Another AR lower (80% preferred, I enjoy the project)

    Arisaka T38 parts

    Remington 700 .270 win barrel

    Mauser 1914 firing pin, grip

    Lead shot, 16ga virgin hulls, 209 primers

    A place to use all that stuff and more

    Time to go to the place that was just mentioned

    Tools to make the stuff I want/need to finish projects.

    And if the bills go to the North Pole... a mountain howitzer or Napoleon cannon with artillery mount and limber.

    You can make a mountain howitzer or parrot rifle with a 5 in gas pipe and a good welder. Make the limber trouble might be finding period wheels. They can usually be bought from the onion, but don't tell them it's for an artillery piece.

    To Read some of the books received during the last ten Christmas’.

    Guns: seeking a first very Modern German handgun, an HK or Walther.
    Did you know that Walther’s US distribution is owned by S&W?

    Maybe there’s a corporate reason (S&W) why modern Walthers are seen as very underrated......
