    Matt got me thinking about this:

    Here's your scenario - windfall money pops into your lap ( inheritance, lottery cash, bank bag off a fast moving armored car, :rolleyes:).

    Let's say $10K.

    You pay a few bills, maybe save some, buy some groceries for the pantry, some of the good stuff for the booze cabinet.

    And now you got some money burning a whole in your pocket.

    So, what gun do you buy? And why?

    Post pictures and inspire the rest of us. I have to think about mine, because I am not sure at the moment what is at the top of my wish list....

    I would want a very stock/military looking 1911 by Kimber with OD grips and a Super Match M1A with appropriate scope (have stock stained OD). I would spend the remainder on ammo for both.

    I really don't need anything at the moment but if I had throwaway money I'd get a Colt Python. Not the most robust of revolvers - but about the prettiest gun ever made. The Colt Royal blue finish is just the best I've ever seen...

    SEI M21/M14, Stoeger Double Defense w/EOTech or Aimpoint and a Cheytac M200 Intervention in .408 Chey w/military goodies. That just about exhausts the $10k after a small stash of ammo.

    That covers close up, medium range and reach the **** out and touch someone.

    Benelli M4, I need a shotgun, I don't have one yet.

    POF 415
    Piston AR and it looks awesome

    and a pair of Watchmen 1911's

    Then just buy ammo and extra accessories with the rest.
    Ask me next week and I'll probably have a different answer for you.

    Maverick 88 in 8 shot. [only about $220]

    [​IMG]
    Remington 572 22LR pump action [$500ish]

    I dont really need any other guns. I'd probably pick up one of these, though.

    [​IMG]
    Mossberg 500 in .410 bore. [$250-$270]

    I'd stock up alot of ammo for each, plus my current guns. Probably get a nice gun safe, too.

    If I were to spend all the money on a single gun, I'd go for a Grulla side-by-side shotgun. Beautiful weapons, made right next to my family's home town in Euzkadi.

    However, I would probably spend the cash on several cheaper guns. A Browning GP 35 with Robar's deluxe package would be at the top of my list (without the golden parts perhaps).

    Closely followed by a Korth Combat with 3" barrel.

    Without going into a long harangue, you don't really want a scope on an M1A...particulary a Super Match.

    If you doubt me...do it, and find out for yourself.

    :eek:

    Please, do educate us. Why would one not want to scope an M14? It seems to be quite commonplace in the military these days. Are they just idiots, or do you have some insight that they don't?

    All an M1A is is a Springfield Armory built M14, all of the workings are exactly the same. They gave it the M1A title to keep the antis at bay.

    The .338 Lapua Magnum was the first cartridge to be developed as a sniper round versing other cartages that were adapted as such. It can penetrate better then military personal armor up to and including 1,000 meters, and has a maximum effective range of 1,750 meters.

    I can't seem to decide on a firearm that I would like to add to my collection based on my own criteria. Several of the weapon systems I would like to add cost more than $10K.

    So, instead I am going to have THIS instead.

    Eat your heart out Benning!!

    Ouch. I like the look but even with lottery winnings I don't think I could justify that price. I was thinking around $2k each, freaking beautiful craftsmanship though.
