Sean steals a meme

Larry wrote up a list of guns he wants. I think I shall swipe the meme and write my list.
1.       Mossberg 590A1 9 shot Ghost Ring sights (can you change out the barrels on the 590A1 to swap in a turkey barrel?)
2.       AR-15 of some type
3.       M1 Garand or an M1A (Appleseed!)
4.       XDm 4.5 in 9mm
5.       XDm 3.8 Compact in 9mm
6.       XDm 4.5 in .45ACP
7.       Kriss Vector
What do you think?

  1. Got a Mossberg, an AR, and an XDM45 4.5. All are good choices. Instead of Old Testament (Garand – .30-06), I went New Testament (LR-308 – .308). Still might get a 9mm and a .40, if just for ammo scrounging possibilities.

    I like the IDEA of the Kriss, but I could do a lot of other stuff with the money that buys one.

  2. Your list doesn’t seem long enough. Where’s the lever action? The 44 magnum? The silenced .308 boltie?

  3. I have an XD .45 and love my M&P .40 better. I still want XDm, as they look way better than XD (which I do love). I figure XDm 9mm is a good way to go, since I’m not in love with my first pistol, S&W 909 9mm.

    Being a lefty, I want my AR-15 style rifle to be from Stag Arms. Others also make fine rifles, but theirs is the first I saw specifically designed for lefties.

    Having just watched the latest Sons of Guns, I am now craving a lever action.

    I like the M1 Garand in Battlefield 1943, but I like my fingers more, so I may never own a real one. :)

  4. Ooh, damn, lever action. Yes, I wants one! (adds to list)

  5. @Newbius: I thought that the Garand was Old Testament, the M14 was New Testament, and that the AR rifles were Church of Latter Day Gunsmiths, Book of Stoner.

    @Bluesun: A lever action is so far down the list that I’d end up with a Single Action Army pistol first. A .44 Magnum? What for? I don’t like revolvers. A silenced .308? What would I use that for? If I was going to spend the money on a silenced weapon, I’d use a caliber that was more useful, like a 6.5 Grendel. If I’ve spent the money for the silencer, I want a round with better ballistics, and I want it in semi-auto so I can shoot the guy next to him as well.

  6. What for? WHAT FOR! Because guns are cool!

    I think my list has one of everything on it…

  7. If you get the 590, pick up some of the aguila or centurion minishotshells. You can get 12+1 of the aguila’s or 11+1 of the centurions in the 590. I’ve fired over 300 of them out of my 590 & never had a problem. Now my remington, otoh, wont feed them at all.
    As far as an AR goes, just pick up a saiga in .223. It’s even got the newest latest thing in AR’s, a gas piston! but on a better platform. Also available in .308

  8. Meme copy at my place, with a link back.

    As for your list:

    1) I have a Mossberg 500, 5 shot. AFAIK, barrels are always interchangeable in the series. Did you mean their model 51670?

    2) Own an AR-15, built from scratch, out of mostly DPMS parts.

    3) Got a Garand last spring. After Appleseed.

    4) Own the XDm 4.5 in 40 S&W.

    5) Agree on the XDm 3.8 in 9, except I own the XD subcompact in 9, which is really similar.

    6) Totally there on the XDm 45. This goes on my list.

    7) Never actually touched one. Just saw the videos.

    Thanks for the idea!

  9. @Graybeard: The shotgun I want is model 51663. 9 shot, ghost ring sights, fixed stock. The 51670 has a pistol grip/adjustable stock.

    The AR has moved up the list in priority. I am planning on spending some time with a friend who makes ARs. I’ll be buying the parts as I have money. It’ll be pretty nice.
