I've been lusting after one of those new Ruger Mark 4 22/45's that a local hardware store has.

The store is a bit nuts on their price (Last I checked, they wanted a little over 600 bucks for it), but I know I can find them cheaper if I do some searching online. Or just drive 30 minutes to Odessa and go to the Academy there instead. :lol:

It's actually amazing how much my taste in things is really to be a contrarian. I'm so hipster that I think mainstream hipsters are mainstream.

To prove my point, I've really been eyeing up those Beretta 92 series handguns since the Army no longer thinks they are in vogue...

I am "lusting" for a PSA AK that takes AR mags. They are supposedly only going to be $600-$800, I am still a little skeptical of 5.56 AKs after my Arsenal 106 experience but that was only one sample.

A threaded barrel for my S&W 41, and a 10mm auto barrel for my TNW ASR (Aero Survival Rifle).

A good 10mm pistol and PCC that use the same mags, but that isn't made by Hi Point

Then a Glock 20, ( or 21 with conversion). And a TNW ASR with 10mm bolt and barrel. Use the same mags.

I've considered that pairing, but I'm not much of a Glock fan. I'm currently considering a Just Right Carbine in 10mm or the TNW ASR (leaning towards the TNW ASR and a .45 ACP conversion kit as an extra) but I can't find a pistol in 10mm that I really like.

The Berreta ARX160. It’s modularity is cool but I love that it is fully ambidextrous. I’d love to be able to buy six to outfit the whole family.

Those are the ones that look like they have a guppy belly, right? Those are pretty neat and very affordable compared to a lot of other options.

I believe the ARX100 is the semi-auto/civilian version of the ARX160 select fire model....but Beretta also markets a semi-auto .22LR called the "ARX160". :crazy:

Yes, it does have a bit of a guppy profile. I believe Rick is correct and the 5.56 is the ARX 100. That's the one I'd like to get a half dozen of.

A 10mm conversion package for my Ruger PC9.

No, they don't make one... yet. But with the clever design features of the PC9 such a conversion isn't unlikely. The PC9 barrel is removable, as is the bolt face. It's a straight blowback design though but the use of a tungsten weight in the bolt lends itself to easy conversion with a replacement weight and spring. Barrel, bolt face, new weight, recoil spring, and magwell insert are all it would take. Probably be in the $200-$250 range I estimate.

Failing that, I'd settle for a CZ75 magwell insert so I could share mags with my pistol.

A .45 ACP conversion could work too... :awesome:

I really want a classic looking revolver...

I would love a 1917 in .45

But I really like the lines of the GP100 match Champion with 1/2 lug barrel

I've been eye-ballin' a blue GP myself. I've been wanting a 327 Fed gun for awhile, but given that I'm deep in reloading stuff for 44 special and 357 I likely won't go that route.

For decades I've wanted to get a Fitz special made on a original 1917 frame. I remember when those big WW1 & !! revolvers were pretty cheap and saw an article in a gun magazine where they built one up as a bedside gun.

As of now I bet you got me wrong

I have to admit to really eyeing the new Ruger Wrangler. Initial reviews seem positive, and at $250 it's very nearly an impulse buy (for a gun).

Tempted to get one, and a Henry lever sometime. Is there a "cheapass" category for cowboy action shooting? :D

Working cowboy you only need one revolver. Other than that no.

Thanks to a post RickOShea made in FA Chat, I now want one of those new Ruger PC9 carbines with the free float handguard (I have plans to make one into a modern PPsH-41 provided I can find a good 9mm Glock drum mag).

I also kind of want one of those Ruger Wrangler .22LR revolvers. I planned to buy a Heritage Rough Rider .22, but since Ruger's making a more budget friendly version of their Bearcat (which I think is what the Wrangler is based off of), I'm just going with Ruger instead.

And I still want Winchester to bring out a repro Model 1895 in 7.62x54r because I want a Russian Contract musket and don't want to risk screwing up a valuable original by shooting it.

Is lusting after enough space to set up my reloading gear (my Dillon 550 has been in a box since I PCSed to Fort Bragg in 2007, and my 3rd kid was born shortly thereafter) and time to use same considered 'firearms related'?
