    Hello all!!!
    I'm new to firearms blog and wanted to get a fun thread started and see what purchases everyone is looking forward to this year and why?
    My list for now:
    1. Walther P22Q: I want to pick one of these up so my girlfriend can plink with me and not be worried about recoil and the cheap cost of ammo.
    2. FNH FNX-9: Already own a 45 and a 40 so I'd like to finally add a 9mm to my small collection.
    3. Ruger Super Redhawk Alaskan 2-1/2" in 454 casull. Saw one being sold at a gunshow not too long ago and fell in love with it.

    That's pretty much it for now, depending how everything goes this year I'd like add other stuff maybe a shotgun.

    I look forward to seeing what everyone has on they're wishlist.

    Colt 1911 XSE. Wanting to add my first 1911, and I can probably only get one gun this year unless things start looking up.

    Those are some nice choices.
    CZ~75 tactical
    Ruger sp101 4"

    Be sure to stop by the introduction thread so you get a proper hello.

    I would love to get 1 gun a year. That would mean I have 51 guns and 1 big safe.

    I'm on the same boat. Work is real slow right now that's why I need a .22 to plink around. You won't regret a Colt XSE I wanted it to be my first 1911 as well but I wasn't patient and settled for a Kimber Custom II :(

    I've already determined not to settle. Told the local gun shop to get one in stock if they can. They said they will, because if I can't buy it for whatever reason, they can still sell it. Has to be government size, steel on steel. I looked at a commander XSE alloy frame, and really liked it, but that alloy frame makes it feel top heavy to me. I was told by another member here that the feeling goes away with ammo inserted, but I've already made my choice. Now I just need the funds...

    A Bushmaster AR-15 with a 20" barrel, preferably one of the target models.

    Funny you should say that, I just looked at some local classifieds and found a bushmaster m4, 16" barrel though, guy says "many upgrades, 10 mags and 2 cases of ammo"

    Its 1500, which I think is way too much, but that's two cases of ammo and I have no idea what sights might be on it.

    Not really what your looking for I think, but would you like a link?

    For me and my needs, I think 2012 will be the year of AMMO AMMO AMMO!!!

    But a Kahr P9 (9mm single stack, 7+1) is next on my gun list.

    I like Ruger revolvers, too. Bought one as my first gun. She's a beauty, indeed. Her name is "Maggie".

    Kahr has lots of nice pistols for the money I almost bought a CM9 once to be my carry piece. And I agree on stocking up on ammo if the SHTF I'll be in trouble with my crappy ammo stock.

    SKS (within the next few weeks hopefully)

    Nagant Revolver (probably right after the SKS since they are so cheap)

    RPK or AK-47 (I would perfer the RPK, but they are a little out of my price range)

    Remington 870 express (I want a shotty. :D)

    Marlin XL or XL7. (still trying to decide on caliber.)

    That will probably be all I could afford for the year, if even that.
