    well, due to difficulties with the so-called tea party sheriff of racine county that has hung up my M16 xfer for over a year now a buyer was found and i sold it.

    sooo this means i have some extra money to get a few toys

    some ideas:

    larue OBR or some other extremely accurate semi auto 308 or bigger

    possible aimpoint comp M4 for the wife and a bcm carbine to replace her dpms (this is a definate she fell in love with my bcm even gave up the idea of the puppy paw handguards!!)

    colt saa 45colt IF i can find one

    im open to other cool suggestions to expand my collection that i havent considered

    Nighthawk !!!! If I had an extra cash to toss around it would prob be that or a bmg. I think I am done for a couple months after giving Dillon a couple grand.

    How many ARs do you have now?

    I was looking at the Savage 110 in 338 until I priced ammo :eek:

    Definitely sad to give up your FA M16 but some new friends in the safe will ease the pain I bet.

    yeah makes me a little pissed at our state attourney general and the sheriff neither has my vote next election. if things change or i move to a fa friendly county i will try again. when i initially bought it i didnt need a letter as i found out by the time the form3 xfer was done the ag ruled even trusts in wisconsin required a letter from the sheriff AND his signature

    well ive got a colt sp1, bcm, and a RRA, the wife has a dpms and maybe 4 uppers that arent mated to any specific receiver. the AR15 type/style is my favorite rifle.

    nighthawk?? ive got a colt series 70!! would cost more than the initial nighthawk to get it back to a series 70 style configuration :(

    the only thing that keeps a 50bmg out of my safe is i have no place to safely shoot one

    Ammunition and a couple classes. I find it more and more rewarding the more I learn and the better I become at running my carbines. More rewarding than filling a safe w/ firearms I am mediocre w/. We all think we can run our gun but there's a certain comfort in knowing you can.

    maybe a DD Ar ? I would like to add one to my AR family

    And training is always priceless, MJ has that one right.. I have a running subscription with panteao productions , I like to watch the videos and then run the drills that they teach. I have also taken combative pistol and carbine courses that were awesome.

    Jon, go with your gut.

    A LaRue OBR would seriously make me cream in my panties. A BCM to add to the stable for the wife, and a Dillon 650 with case feeder and trimmer, set up for .223 and I'd say that'd make me forget about that other thing you traded away......

    Jon,
    If you are considering .50 bmg u might look for a bolt action to throw on top of one of your existing lowers or maybe a new lower also. Thats on my soon To purchase list. And my buddy has a safe 900 yards at his place . So much to choose from.

    JonM, if i had a rifle chambered in 50BMG, i would find a place to shoot it, even if i had to drive 500 miles to get there! for me that would be the ultimate bolt action rifle!

    I do have a trust. Wisconsin requires a leo letter trust or not for any fa item. This is a very new thing that was not required by the leftist marxist previous ag of all things.

    If i ever get a 50 it will be a barret semi auto.

    No doubt a Nighthawk would be great but I'm also happy with my Series 70 and it's a real one, not retro.

    So many choices, so many great guns to buy! :D

    Yeah nothing beats the series 70 new or old style got one of each. Would love one of the new goldcups too.

    Im leaning heavy to making that obr 7.62 order. Need to research other 7.62 ar types but i cant think of any that really rings out to me

    How about a nice M1 Garand? I would also vote for the Colt SAA, one of the most beautiful guns made!

    Y'know a nice Hi Power would look good next to the Series 70 and Gold Cup, Jon!

    got a M1 from the original springfield armoury it is a WW2 gun. a new blued 4 or 5 inch colt SAA is DEFINATELY a must IF i can find one *sigh*

    i like the cz75 better than the hi power.

    im probably going gold cup, SAA, either cz75 or another cz97BD (my dad took my last one grrrr)

    rifle im looking at larue OBR 7.62 havent decided 18 or 20 inch or if there is another 7.62 semi that appeals. fn scar is out too many mixed reports on those and i dont like the side charger thing. the goal on the 7.62 is replicate the versatility and general functional ease of use of the soviet Dragunov SVD so it will get topped with a 7.62 nato calibrated 8x acog
