I think the next two things on my short list are a Sphinx SDP alpha and a CZ Scorpion evo 3 . The scorpion would be a cool pistol to form 1 on and turn into an SBR. the sphinx would be a great carry piece.

Hmmm, I would love to have another FAL even if its just a cheap parts kit build. 

 

Another M1A would be nice too...... 

 

Meh, I dunno really. I haven't purchased a firearm since sandy hook.

SIG P220 Elite 10mm (whenever it comes out).

 

Ruger GP100 Wiley Clapp .357 Magnum.

 

S&W M625-JM .45 ACP.

 

I'd (also) love to (finally) get a .44 Special revolver.

 

I so lust after the Sphinx SDP Compact and CZ P-07....very similar, with very different price tags, but excellent 9mm compact handguns nonetheless.

sphinx licenses the pistol design from CZ and then puts their super high quality Swiss spin on it. A CZ P07 may be a more reasonable choice for me ,but I was going for the dream.

I would like to get myself a Glock 19 for my 21st birthday, which is a little over a year away, so right now I am saving up for that purchase.

You'll love it, Griffen.

 

For me, my next firearm acquisition (probably my last for a long, long time) will be a Ruger LCRx in .38 Special.

Probably a .308 bolt gun of some kind or a 10/22.

I have a real infatuation with .38 special.

There's a bit of romance there, right?!  They're small and powerful...

You guys are making me drool a bit. I think I'll get my licence this year. In that case, a Ruger 10/22 would be first on the bill.

I have to disagree Duff. As long as you are not looking for a rifle with a ton of aftermarket options, the Marlin 795 is the way to go. It is about half the price of the 10/22 and many claim that it is more accurate. I do admit that the 10/22 is the best .22 rifle out there as far as customizability, but I think the Marlin 795 dominates the 10/22 in value.

I have to agree. There are other options, and I have owned most of them, but in my opinion, none are better than the 10-22.

Can I move in? I'm employed, can provide references, have decent credit and I'm willing to work around the house. :D

The entire reason I want a firearms licence is to eventually own an M1A. I have thought they were the coolest looking gun since watching Tour of Duty reruns as a kid.
