i have about $500 burning a hole in my pocket. i am wanting to buy another gun but dont know if i want a pistol(sub compact) or another rifle of some sort.

i currently have a savage .308 rifle, shotgun, and a XD 9mm.

Is not spending the money an option? It'd be the smart thing to do.

How about a 10/22 with scope + accessories and ammo.

How about a fusion frame and slide kit? Build your own 1911. If you want a good cheap rifle find a K31 and ammo. Maybe scope it. I found mine for 130 and it's a damn accurate rifle stock. For the value I wish I'd bought more.

If i still lived in texas id sell you my xd9mm sub compact with that cross breed super tuck. I like the gun but, I like my kimber better.

What you might call solitude is something i look forward to.

that is an option...BUT this is a late xmas bonus from work that i was totally not expecting so im thinking spending it on a gun or ammo sounds more fun.


i think i have decided on trying to find a nice used subcompact, hopefully an xd 40 cal that will be a little easier to conceal than the xd9 i have now. but a 10/22 rifle would be a cheap plinker to shoot also. geez i need to win the lotto haha

If I had $500 to blow on a firearm, it would be an M1 garand.
