I myself need a good pump action, a Mossberg 300, with dual pistol grips and a bayonette, but the short version for the house defense. Really its the only thing I need as per the old song: I gotta' shotgun,, a rifle,, and a .45, A country boy will Survive!"

But I am always looking for russian arms, Its a simple collection, but I think I can master it Ive seen all but one of the one i really want:

Mosin Nagant (Own)
Tokarev pistol (have 150 7.62x25 rounds)
Russian made AK47
SVT (I actually just found out it was russian)
PPSH-41 (Hard to find and hope it isnt full auto, but by the time I find one I might have my Class III)

Then Maybe onto german arm:

Lugar pistol
MP40
MG42 (again...by this time ill have a class3)

What do ya'll think?

Agreed

You beat me to it. This is my dream gun. Although I can't decide if I want it in new condition or "war used".

I would vote "like new" but used in the War. I wouldn't want a rifle that was brand new and never made it out to war. There is no story attached to the gun which is what half of collecting would mean to me.

I just found

a PSS in near-mint. The silencer still works, but I need to find some rounds for it.
What model Mosin Nagant do you have?

I have a few in mind

But the next on my list is a .45, more specifically a 1911. What make and model, however, is up for grabs.
After that is a 3 or 4" revolver in 357 mag. Possibly a GP100 or a S&W 686 if I have the money.
And then I will take the dive into polymer framed pistols; make, model and caliber unknown.

I currently own a Beretta 92FS, 1943 Mosin Nagant 91/30 in 7.62/54R, and a 1942 Lee Enfield in .303 British.

Don't miss.

Hard to choose

I am saving up for an AK-47 right now and then after that I will be getting a Mossberg 500 for my home defense. Already got my .45 1911. Once I get all of those I will probably get some Glock or XD. Something for carry. Possibly a revolver. I really enjoy shooting revolvers. I could make up a huge list of guns that I would buy. But realistically those are the ones that are coming up for me soon.

@ savage

Noob,
Good choice! Savage makes some great rifles, my fav is the 114 though the 110 has alot to recommend it. and they aren't really expensive either.

ok, fuck it...

so I went to a pawn shop to look for a table saw..I just couldnt stay away from the guns..

I did find a WASR AK47 for $300, is that a good deal? and its a pawn shop so I could haggle a little bit..

at the same pawn shop there was a Haskell JS45, (a .45 hand gun) are they any good, it was all metal and only $120..

It they both work, I might get both

That is not a bad deal. My brother just purchased an Egyptian made AK for 340. Those are the closest made AK's to the original Russians AKs. WASR's are not bad guns but you could purchase a brand new WASR for around 400 dollars. I would probably go that route but it is completely up to you. I would always consider buying a used AK because they last forever and they are cheap to repair if they ever break down.

WASR AK

I'm not much on AKs, but I've seen these and thought about them too. I was really thinking about getting a '74 variant, but it's hard to justify buying another rifle that won't fill a specific role. Especially when I already have a wish list that includes 20k in aftermarket parts for my truck and about three grand for a new rifle.

Mosin

my next purchase will be a Mosin M91/30. My friend just bought one at a gun show for 105 with ammo pouches, bayonet and sling, all original.
We haven't shot it yet but it seems to be in perfect working order.
And my friend is a gunsmith so he should know.
