Hello, GS. Long time no see. Been getting pounded at work lately. I hesitate to say, for fear of calling down the thunder, but it looks like the load is lightening. I thought about catching up on all the posts, but there's no way I could. So if I missed anything, sorry.
Anyway, I got good news. I got TBH to green light my next firearm. So, I am trying to decide on what I want.
My wish list is really long, but I've got a few ideas right at the top. I've narrowed it so far to rifle or shotgun. A new pistol will wait. I know, pretty general still.
I've mentioned before I would like to look into an AR, so that's a consideration. I also have been kicking around historic battle rifles like the Mosin, Mauser, Garand, '03 Springfield.
But that's more for play. Practically, I could use a new shotgun. I want to hunt duck, goose, and quail. My current shotty could do it. With a few mods. I can't use steel, so I'd have to use the expensive non-toxics. It only uses 2.75" shells. Not a real issue IMO. I have to make a shotgun plug if I want to be legal. I seem to have lost the original and I can't find one that works. So, I'm kick around the idea of a Rem1100. I'd love the new browning A5, but too pricey.
My funds are up to $700.That's a little problem, especially with the AR.
So, I welcome your opinions. What do think? Rifle or shotty? AR or battle rifle? Should I look at used guns at pawn shops and gun shows? Or try out Cheaper Than Dirt, Cabela's, etc.?
Let me know what you think.
