If you had 500-600 bucks that you didn't need for bills or what not. would you buy a new gun or more ammo for the guns you already have.

I would buy ammo, although new guns are always nice.:)

I do have $500+ bucks and I don't have any bills.

But I also don't need a new rifle or more ammo either.

Ammo is something I like to keep freshly stocked.

500 rounds for my main HD firearm, my 45ACP.

And 100 rounds of each other kind of calibre, for each of my hunting revolver, my hunting rifle, and my shotgun.

I use archery for small game, so I don't also need a 22LR, otherwise I would get two Ruger 22's, a pistol and a rifle, both semi-auto. Ruger has done the best job on cutting edge technology for the 22LR calibre.

What I need to do is get another dozen arrows sometime soon.

Probably after this coming bowhunting season, I will take care of that.

I am the kind of guy to check the pawn shops for something unique. One can never have enough guns.

I'd spend $300 of it on a new gun, and the rest on ammo. :D

I want to get another gun. I was thinking of a 9mm hand gun or 22 of kind. But I could use more ammo too.

What do you have already? One of my husband's guns is a .40 cal and he bought a conversion barrel to change it to a 9 mm. That is a good option. He got it from Lone Wolf Distributors I believe. They have a few different ones.

I have a hi point carbine in 9mm. Getting a 9mm handgun just makes since to me. I was thinking about a 22 1911 or some other 22 that was alittle different too. But I need ammo just as bad as I need a new gun. It's more like a should I stop getting more ammo and save for a new toy question.

If it was me and i didnt have a 22 rifle, that would be first. Then the rest in ammo, you can never have enough ammo. I keep on hand at least 1000 rounds for each gun. But i also do my own reloading. Hey theres another option, set yourself up to reload. Thats just me and free advice is what its worth. What ever you chose just make sure it makes you happy.

If you are completely proficient with the guns you have, then buy a new caliber gun. If you are not, buy ammo and range time.
