    Got a 12 . I like 16 gage guns and a model 12 in 16 is a nice classic old pump

    Hard to argue with that. They are classics.

    When darkness be closin in
    I'm motivated, with the howlin wind
    With a list of chosen men, frozen in sin
    Knowin that your end is beginnin
    Swift silent and deadly
    There's no defending my plots, I know your every movement
    For six months I watch, coulda gotchu at your baby's mother's house
    Even at your down-low weed spot
    But the backdrop, wasn't flattering enough
    I didn't want people gathering and stuff
    Snapshots of blood splattering from the snuff
    Here - puff this here, while I figure which way, to split yo' wig
    Right now you as nervous, as a Farmer John pig
    As I dig into my tragic bag, take out the HK
    Twist on the silencer, insert the thirty-shot mag
    Bullet stuck to his brain like a magnet
    Skull in fragments, I leave the cleanup to Dragnet

    Makarov if you don't have one.

    In 9mm, a Beretta 92, or those new Canik Turkish ones seem REALLY good. Also CZ.

    9mm compact? Ruger's new one seems good:

    R.I.P. RUGER LC9S

    and:
    Ruger EC9s The Budget Single Stack 9mm


    How about 10mm?

    If you’re looking a #10mmthe @rockislandarmory Ultra FSis hard to beat. Perfectly balance and Incredibly accurate. @gunnerationx"

    .22 revolver?

    .357?

    SO many choices!

    You know I looked up the price for one of these not that long ago after getting my first broomhandle and very quickly showed myself the exit. ha

    I’m itching for either a 16ga (any rifle caliber) drilling (odd since I’m usually a skinflint) or a HiPower.

    Can’t quite decide

    I would take the money and buy another case or three of ammo while it's still cheap. If you actually have to ask someone what gun to buy, you're not ready to buy another one.

    You want the Sig P320 X-Five Coyote.

    Done.

    basically, a factory IDPA gun. 5" barrel (vs most other 320's are shorter, including the M17). Optics ready. tuned flat-face trigger. magwell. Four TWENTY-ONE round mags, standard.

    P320 XFive Coyote

    If I had my choice, it would be a lightweight Browning Buckmark, with 5" barrel, fiber sights, maybe wood grips. This would be for plinking, targets, and hunting, maybe even some friendly competitions. Are these legally for sale in shops in Massachusetts? I haven't even started to check yet.

    If there was a stupid gun to impulse buy for no reason a MK23 would be on there, somewhere, on that list.

    I liked mine. Despite it being stupid. It was cool, and shot like a laser. And if you get bored with it you'll get most of your money back.

    Yes they are. Rubber stock grips can be switched to wood easily. About $425 new.

    I have a Buckmark Hunter with wood grips and the Browning reflex sight on it. No pictures right now, but yes, they’re available.

    I’d go for another carry piece. Have a Glock 17 (yes, I carry that), Sig P250c in 45, a Kahr CM9, a Bersa Thunder .380, so why not another 9mm? 9mm ammo is so cheap right now. I’m thinking about a Sig P365 non safety with a light trigger. HST is on sale for half off the bricks on Target Sports right now. That’s some seriously cheap mince meat makers.

    The want list never ends, smh. I think it would be cheaper to get a commercial fishing boat and chase bluefin tuna at this point

    Barrett REC7 in 224 valkyrie
    Christensen Arms Ridgeline in 7mm-08
    6.5CM upper for my Sig 716
    Sig P220 in 10mm
    Colt Delta Elite
    CZ Bren 805
    Walther Q5 match
    Vepr 12
    JM stamped Marlin 1895 GBL
    Sig MPX
    Sig MCX
    Walther PPQ 45
    Springfield M1A loaded precision
    a couple surplus M1911s
    CZ 75

    Although, I'll probably just buy some ammo, mags, and a new scope. I've already bought 3 guns this year and my wife has been giving me the stink eye.

    I never had any interest in antique firearms, until I was given a Colt 1860 revolver several months back. It was a gift from a family member's friend who knew I was into firearms and thought I would appreciate the history of it. Holy crap what a cool gift! It was made in 1861 and has military acceptance markings. There is pretty much zero doubt that it served in civil war at some point.
    Right now the cylinder is soaking in transmission fluid and Free-All to help remove the original nipples. I have a set of replacement nipples, and hell yes I'm going to fire this thing. I'll save the original nipples of course.
