View Full Version : What's next?
I have G17, USP 45, AR, AK, Shotgun, 22 Rifle
So what's next?
I'd like it to be a handgun, I'm definitely going to order a 22 kit for the Glock....
I have two thousand USDs to spend -
I prefer to build a "battery" vs a collection. I'd say another G17 or another quality AR is in order.
Why not another semi-auto rifle. A second AR will work or something like a FAL. A M1 Garand or Springfield M1A could also be a option.
I firmly believe that "one is none" & "two is one" and so on.
There for I think everyone should have a Minimum of a "Pair and a Spare" of all their favorite platforms.
BTW: A Pair and a Spare = 3 of the same exact makes & models.
A G19 would compliment the G17 or you could pick up another G17. Another AR would also be a good suggestion.
However I am a firm believer that no gun collection is complete without a quality 1911. I would recommend the Springfield TRP or if you save just a few more $$$ you could have a Springfield Pro (my top choice).
Glock 26 and/or a S&W 642
You have no BUGs on your current list.
What's next for what? Filling the safe or something more useful?
What you buy next is going to depend on your perception of firearms in general. Is owning them the end-state, or are there activities you need the firearms for or uses you envision them for?
For example, TPD mentions not having a concealment piece. GREAT point, but if you aren't going to carry anyway, or can't in your state, maybe not applicable to your situation. Maybe you're a hunter and you're looking for some excitement, in which case a 6" 1911 in 10mm might be just what you need for taking hogs up close.
I'm a competition shooter and concealed carry and self-defense minded non-LE civilian. If I found myself suddenly in possession of your exact "collection" and had $2k burning a hole in my pocket I'd sell off the shotgun and the Universally Shitty Pistol, buy a Glock 19 and 26 (or maybe even a Kahr PM9 instead of the 26), and pick up a spare AR. This assumes that the first AR isn't a POS, and if it is then I'd ditch it too and get a pair of 6920s, Noveskes, BCMs, or Daniel Defense. I'd probably sell off the shotgun as well, or at least not replace it if it got stolen.
I just wish I had $2,000 to spend:mad:
Seriously I'll you've given us to work with is you want to spend $2K and you would like a pistol. I could do alot of things with 2K on one of three projects I have, none of which would be a new firearm. I have four more then I shoot right now and keep thinking I should sell them off to mod the ones I'm retaining.
Given your current on hand list I'd look at a second G17(maybe a 34), and a second AR, with optic. That should take you to $2K no problem.
I'm with JHC - build a "battery." Except if I had that quota filled, then I'd get a cool lever action and/or a packable survival rifle.
...But you want a pistol. A quality 1911 sounds good. A compact Glock for concealed carry would be smart as well as another AR.
