    So, I've been saving up money. I wanted to ask you guys and gals what you would do.

    I love guns and shooting. The gun I want to buy is the M1A. By the way, does anyone know if they are like on backorder or if they are in stock? :confused: Also, maybe suggest another gun? (looking for rifle)

    But also my truck is like... Plain. I want it to stand out a bit. I was thinking about getting intake headers exhaust. If you say this, any suggestions?

    Just wondering. Its a hard decision over on my end, so I was hoping i could get some feed back from people who know more than me. ;)


    (also, i meant to make a poll, cause I thought it would be cool... but i couldn't figure it out :()

    M1A is the shit. Anyone who tells you otherwise is a fool! Buy IT!!


    I'm definitely not one to buy a new rifle over parts either. But being an avid shooter, and someone who has personally shot this beast, this thing is ridiculous and shouldn't be passed up!


    PS: if you do decide to buy this thing, be prepared to fork over a hand full on optics. Between their range capabilities and recoil, its a never ending Battle keeping low MOAs with a junker on top.

    Man I lived in Tucson for a couple of years. I lived on River Road, it was nice. There are some ghetto areas though. Every city has them.

    Regarding the money, save the money. This economy is about to get even worse before it gets better. It would be nice to have some money stashed away.

    I have a T/C encore with a custom .308 barrel, still need to get the scope and mounts.

    I did it again. Got tired of paying truck payments and gas and traded in for a 2015 Honda Accord Sport since I enjoyed my 2013 Sport so much.
    New rifle.

    You will always be able to buy truck parts. Not so sure about guns in todays political field.

    I moved in 1999. There may be a mall near there now, but the mall was on Broadway when I lived there. River road was actually in foothills. I lived on the east side. 5755 East river road. Apt 1507. It was at River and Craycroft. I lived in that area because that's the place that had the best quality weed.

    And as to the availability of the M1A, most likely it's out of stock at a lot of places. I know that after the election people went on a buying spree and buying up AR/AK/FAL/M1A/SKS style guns.

    Last I heard there is still a large backorder and if you can find them you're paying several hundred more than what they used to cost. For example my WASR that I paid $350+tax for could be sold for ~$500. ARs that used to be $900 are fetching $1100-$1200.

    LOL, the place to go when I was there was a club called "Outback" I only went there a couple of times.

    Of course I visited "TD's" all the time.

    Nimbus brewery had some excellent microbrew, except I don't they were around in 98...at least I didn't hear of them in '98.

    Zachary's pizza was the best pizza in town.

    I should have said, I moved out of Tucson in 99

    Couldn't agree more! Obuma and company are more than likely not going to try and outlaw Tacoma part, but they will be after guns for sure.

    Gotta love supply and demand.
