What am I going to get myself for my birthday this year? This is the first year that I don't already know what I want and I'm just counting down the days to go and get it. I'm having trouble finding that one thing that really revs my engine. Thought about getting an iPad, but I really have no use for one and I'd probably lose interest with it after a few months. Then it's obsolete in a few years, so poor investment. I'm always up for a new gun. It's what I usually get myself. But seems like this year I haven't found too many guns that really get me ramped up. I'm trying to think, but I think I've only bought 3 new guns so far this year. I set up at a gun show this weekend and believe it or not, but there wasn't a single gun in the whole place that I just feel in love with. There were several that I wouldn't mind having, but nothing that I just needed to have. What are some gun options say in the ballpark of $1200 max that just really cool and/or fun to shoot? Rifles and pistols. I'm tired of buying safe queens. I thought about an M1 Carbine just for fun shooting. I reload, so ammo would not be nearly as expensive as buying off the shelf. Thought about a Beretta CX4 carbine too, but I'm not sold on that one either. I'm having writer's block for guns here. Need some help.
