    Afe CAI (removed back to stock intake), TSB 4 leaf pack with Firestone Air Bags and Daystar cradels, 3rd OEM HU, Wranger All Terrain Adventure with Kevlar 265/75/16, Cali raised LED pods, Wheeler Off Road Front Bump Stops.
    I just landed a new job which pretty much doubles what I'm making now, so I decided to treat myself to a couple nice things for my hard work. I want to mention that I have thought about purchasing firearms for over 2 years now, but life keeps getting in the way, so hopefully this time its for real.

    Purchase 1:
    Browning Buckmark
    Mosin Nagant
    Ruger 10/22

    Purchase 2:
    Berretta 92fs
    Rock River Arms LAR-15 Elite Operator 2

    Purchase 3:
    Colt 1911
    LWRC Repr

    For CCW:
    Sig P238 or Sig 229

    Models and color aren't finalized, but this is the plan out. Please critique, comments, shit storm, etc.. I need to know the best and the worst with my list so I won't be wasting the $$$$

    The .22s in your "Purchase 1" are excellent choices. I probably have put more rounds through the Buckmark and 10/22s I've owned than I have any other firearm, with the inclusion of a Ruger Mark II that I put so many bricks through that I literally shot the rifling out of it.

    Practice is what makes a good shooter. An old man my Grandpa knew could hit aspirins thrown in the air with a .22. I asked him how the heck he could do that and he said all you have to do is shoot about a truck load of ammo and you will finally get the hang of it.

    Just throw away that list...... seriously...

    After making purchase #1..... enough time will go by that your thoughts will change, your budget will change, and guns/designs will change.

    You will change your mind a gazillion times..... I guess you can 'dream' for now.

    Yeah, just throw the list away.

    Im into guns, and like collecting them, so Im always buying/selling and trading guns. Theres only 4 or 5 I wont get rid of, as they have been in my family, but all the others are available for trade/sell whenever I see something I simply cannot live without at the gun show! :)

    The Ruger 10/22 is the best gun ever period. I have shot more rounds out of my 10/22 then I can even start to count and for dirt cheap.

    I say just get what guns you want and like the feel of...no need for a list, besides if I had a list it would go on for pages and make me realize I don't have the money to get any of them.

    As popular as the Ruger 10/22s are, I still prefer my Remington pump 22 more.
    My dad has the Ruger and I do like it, but it has issues...
    1. Likes to jam
    2. Not all that accurate
    3. Harder to clean
    4. shorter barrel (good or bad on opinion)

    My Remington doesn't shoot as fast when his doesn't jam obviously, but is still pretty damn fast when going psycho on the pump.

    His is a stainless and synthetic and mine isn't though so maybe this is causing some of the issues? (stainless heating up? IDK)

    The Remington is much more accurate, longer barrel???

    Just my $.02 but I am not gun savvy, just a decent shot and love to shoot ;)

    I had a list, then It changed after I got my AR15..... First I wanted a Glock now I'm getting a Browning Maxus... I guess It's needs over wants when it comes to getting Firearms.

    Yeah I agree with you Snowrox about stock 10/22's. I have pretty much taken the action out of a stock ruger and put in a boyds stock with a bull barrel and nice scope and it makes it pretty accurate.

    Scratch the buckmark and put a ruger MKIII, they are awesome...I have shot 750 rounds of the cheapest dirtiest ammo out of mine and had no jams....though some didn't fire because of the cheap ass ammo. the 750 rounds were without cleaning.

    The 10/22 is very reliable, you just have to figure out what ammo it likes. each one is different. mine likes the bulk gold tip hollow point best (that I have found) and wont jam with those, but if I put some types of ammo in, it will stovepipe from time to time. If it is a hot loaded .22 round, you will have no problem with jams. that is what I have found out.


    Nice choice on the Nagant by the way, I too plan on getting one (before they jump in price, which they will sooner or later).

    after you get the first round of guns though, you will probably change your mind on the rest and start looking too much......and find different guns that you want instead.

    Good luck either way, make sure you learn to clean and maintain them and they will last lifetimes.

    I agree with Idaholandho. I've owned about 50 guns in my life, not including Army issue ones. I have kept few more than a year or two as I was never rich enough to keep a large collection and would trade in a gun toward another purchase when I wanted to try something new or if I needed a different caliber or gauge for a different hunting purpose. However, I have always had a mental list of guns that I wanted and have pretty much gone through it, with the exception of a high-end target pistol.

    10/22 jamming? what??? Must be a really dirty action and extractor or something. I have several and they never jam. Not until they are so full of mud that the bold doesn't cycle. Maybe a magazine issue? I have shot that truckload of ammo out of mine and still running strong.

    Nope, squeaky clean. Bought new, with new factory magazines and also aftermarket magazines.

    Dad's 10/22 might have 1000 rounds, he doesn't use it much. I do most of the shooting :D

    I would replace the Buckmark with a Ruger 22/45. You will get more bang for your buck since it has the same ergos as a 1911.

    I would also swap the REPR for a different AR-10. It is a great gun but has some proprietary parts that could be expensive to replace.

    Lastly, I would consider a 1911 for carry. It is easily concealable and is easy to manipulate with a little practice. Also you don't have to adjust anything between your home defense and carry guns. A government model at home and a commander or officer for carry.

    It also makes it a lot cheaper to pick a couple calibers per platform. That way you don't have to keep 8-10 different calibers. When I had a lot of different calibers I rarely bought in bulk and it cost me a lot more

    I would also throw a shotgun on the list. They are a lot of fun and devastating in a home defense situation

    my 10/22 loves the remington golden bullet and any CCI ammo.

    other like the federal bulk pack. Mine wont shoot the federal worth a damn.

    each 10/22 will be a little different. with a few simple upgrades you can make them into even better guns.

    If you have a 1911 or a Glock, you can get 22 conversion units.......realistic practice with inexpensive ammo...plus saves money and space since you don't have so many guns laying around (if that's a bad thing)

    yes yes yes yes yes

    i cannot second this enough

    I've bought very few of my guns brand spanking new and saved myself SOO much money...however that is negated because when I find a good deal I jump on it and dont stick to any sort of list or plan

    I have 2 duty weapons, a couple off duty weapons, a backup weapon...and then a bunch of "fun" guns

    Just remember also that it's 30 days in between each pistol and a CCP will be almost impossible unless you need it for your job in Cali. Good luck.
