I have a total budget of $2k to spend on either one pistol or one rifle/scope combo. The money represents a significant amount of time and work on my part and I want to get a gun that will represent that. I want to get something unique, but not something that's collector value will be ruined if I shoot it a lot. I want a gun that I can enjoy shooting. I am particular about all my guns, so it will be well taken care of. I just don't want to buy something to sit in a safe and never be fired. I'm only interested in spending the money on a gun, something that I will always have and that will always be a reminder of the time and work I put in to get the gun. I'm not interested in suggestions like "Buy a Mosin and spend the rest on ammo." I'm looking for something fairly unique or not very commonly seen that will be fun to shoot. So let's see what everyone can come up with!
