I'll probably only manage 1 or 2 guns from this list - but guns that interest me for 2009 are:

- Sig 220 SAO or HK45 (I plan to rent both to decide which one)
- Springfield Champion Operator 1911
- Keltec 380 or Kahr 380
- Beretta 92FS (I've owned a few of these over the years - currently have none)
- Beretta 85

What about U guys?

I'll be picking up the following in 2009, so long as they are available...

1. Scar-L 16s (it's already ordered and paid for, I'm just assuming it will be here in 2009)
2. Steyr Aug A3
3. Robinson Armament XCR-M
4. Bushmaster ACR????
5. 1911 (either Colt series 70 or Springfield mil (or) gi spec)

That's it. I'll pick up an AR or two if the price is right, but I don't want anything else.

Aside from the 6.5 Grendel I'm building out of my AR15 stripped receivers there isn't too much that I want to buy for 2009. I've spent plenty on guns this year, 2009 will be the year of ammo.

1. MC Operator (1911)
2. Springfield Champion Operator (possibly customized)
3. SCAR if available
4. FNP 45
5. P99 AS 9mm
6. Remi 700 for starter bolt gun
7. Benelli Supernova (for hunting)
8. Benelli M4
9. Some sort of AR in 5.56.


In reality, 1,4,5, and 7 will probably happen.

I'd go for the Sig P220 myself but an ELITE model. If you've ever shot with the SRT(Short Reset Trigger) trigger, you'll never want a Sig without it again. I have an Sig Elite and its well worth it over non SRT.

Well If I still have a job I want the following

7.62 AR
Sig 556
Socom II or equiv
.300 mag bolt
S&W 442

The armalite .338 lapua bolt for $1500 is tempting but I think I can only afford to shoot 1 or 2 rounds per year :lol:

Just an inquiry, why did you choose the Grendel over a Rem 260? I ask because I chose the 260 over the Grendel recently mainly due to the 308 casing and actions already built for it.

The only thing I'm looking at hard for 2009 is a Nighthawk Custom 1911.
I lusted after them for years - until I finally got to handle a few. I was a little let down, personally. That's why I went with that custom Springer.

Good to know! Now I'll need to find a couple to handle/shoot. Thanks man.

Collectors Firearms has some in Houston.

I personally think the Ed Browns feel better in the hand - however, after a local guy's experience with horrible customer service, I eliminated that one as well. I was so close to special ordering a stainless Special Forces model.

Excellent, thanks. Collectors is a lunch-time regular stop of mine (I don't buy there, I just fondle there).

I like hearing this type of info BEFORE I make a purchase. :D

Well, U may have a different opinion. But, it just didn't feel "beefy" enough for me - for a $2500+ handgun. The Springfields and Ed Browns felt that way to me, though.
