Let's play a game
I am getting $1308 back on from taxes. If you had $1308 to spend and want 2 new guns, what would they be. You MUST buy 2 and cannot go over $1308. Also, It needs to be a Handgun and a shotgun or 2 handguns. Try to be specific. Caliber, brand name, model, etc.

Define "toys".

Knife and a gun?

Two guns?

An SUR and a piece of tail?

What are YOU looking to do?

Buy a really nice handgun. Or buy a pretty nice handgun and a shotgun. Buy a sh*t ton of ammo.

Use your imagination.

Okay. I already don't like the direction this is going. You are asking to much in my opinion...

If it were me??

I would put $200-$300 away. Some of it in my BOB ( $60-$80 ) and the rest is savings.

With $1,000 left over?

I would get ONE really good quality 1911 or SUR AR-15. Your choice.

With $1000 as a price range, there are a ton of SUPER quality options for either choice.

I would rather have ONE really durable, quality, well built, reliable, "I would bet my life on it" weapon than a dozen weapons that looked good but performed less than 100% in my eyes.

The VERY FIRST weapon I ever bought for myself when I was out on my own was a good, reliable pistol. Something that I KNEW could take care of business IF I was ever put in harms way.

I carried that weapon for over a decade in 5 states and a lot of individual cities.

Once I "Made It" I started building my collection.

Not before.

I never bought weapons for quantity.

I always bought something that I had researched to the last final degree and I KNEW it was a weapon that I 1) wanted and 2) could rely upon.

I would recommend getting the best quality weapon, in the category that fits YOUR needs, and I would not worry about "how many" weapons you have.....

OK. So one, easily concealable (on a motorcycle and carried daily), fairly light weight, EXTREMELY reliable weapon.....

If I had to buy a set of weapons based on your formula on quantity, but still had room for a highly level of quality I would probably purchase a CZ 83 or a CZ 2075 RAMI pistol for carry and conceal, and a Mossberg 590 for home defense. The rest of the money I would just sock away for a rainy day in my savings account.

I agree 1000% with Major Kusanagi. That's what you should do.

MoHawk 01-21-2010 01:13 AM

I just looked into the 2075 and am kind of impressed. as far as the 590 goes, I thought it had to be an 18in. barrel to be legal....?
