    As I have thinned out my C&R collection some I have about $900.00 store credit at the local gun shop. Question is...what should I spend it on? Does not have to be C&R. :confused:

    A gun or a firearm.

    I have no interest in hunting. Possible handgun or rifle. Open to all suggestions.

    I just love these kinda postings... Dude, how bout a little more info?? I could give you a ton of ideas to spend your money on but you're in a gun forum and you've not let us know what you already have or even if you are looking for a new gun or something else.... The word "possible" means you've got money burning a hole in your pocket and you just gotta spend it.. Sorry, woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning I guess ( lol ).

    xring3: I think you should donate that money to me. I can put it to very good use- and I am a very noble and worthy cause. ;)

    Spend the Money now!! Shops have a habit of closing, you'd loose your $$$.
    Get something that strikes your fancy. A nice 1911 w/ some ammo? A classic S&W wheel gun??

    Let's see, four 10/22's, or a Glock an two 10/22's, or an M&P and two 10/22's, or a Springfield 1911, or a Remington 870, a 10/22 and three Mosins, or one 10/22 and $700 worth of ammo. Go to the gun shop and spend it.

    Ok folks...I'll spell out what I have been looking at. I saw a FN FAL for about $800.00, a S&W .38 air weight, .22 Browning auto rifle, .22 Browning pump, various models of Glock and so forth. I have enough C&R military ( I thought I stated that). Perhaps one rifle and one handgun. As far as donating the money, perhaps the home for wayward girls could use a donation. Just kidding!!!!!

    Thought you disappeared. Fal would be fun, 38 smith if you plan on ccw is a very good investment. I've never shot a Browning, but they are generally nice. I recommend a smith m&p over a glock, handle one and compare. Look at a pistol caliber carbine, LOTS of fun.Most firearms are good investments, much more so than a relationship with a girl ;)

    I'm certain I know why and it saddens me but a lot of classic old Colt and S&W revolvers are turning up a fire sale prices.

    There is a site called ARMSLIST that covers most of the US. Activity depends on the area you're in.It has quite a bit of dealer posts but if you track it carefully you can find some great private seller deals.

    Traveling a little has netted a few excellent face to face buys and swaps.
    With cash it's a buyers market.

    Why? He could have the store buy it as they are an FFL. That is a great idea. Cruise the internet till you find what you want, have the store buy it.

    OK.......came home the other day with a Browning .22 auto rifle and a S&W .38 spl model 637. Still have some credit leftover. I also have a M48 still to be sold and may take in a K31. At that point I will have thinned out the collection to one example of the models I need. Someday, I hope to go out and shoot. My lovely bride tends to keep me busy with honey do lists. Guess that is her way of spending my retirement.
