This should prove interesting... Might not be a good idea to post what you already have... so let's call this a wish list of what "you would have, if you could." My curiosity mainly revolves around your logic behind the choices.
My collection (wish list) started out as what I could get cheap & what I liked. Now it's more of what I have ammo for.
.22 Short, Long, Long Rifle...

Ruger 10/22 Carbine w/ M1 Carbine Stock - Because it's cool!
Ruger 10/22 Rifle - Stainless - Good deal I couldn't pass up.
Henry AR7 Survival Rifle - Good deal I couldn't pass up.
Ruger MK111 - Fun, reliable, cheap to shoot but NEVER take it apart!

I think that covers it... The rest has left recently due to ammo availability & prices. More may go due to lack of interest & redundancy. Besides if TSHTF, it would break my heart to destroy them rather than allow them to fall into the wrong hands.

Well it's a good start! ;)

Damn... looks a bit greedy or excessive when it's in print. If this keeps up I might be labeled a "gun nut".

How sad... I'll bet you don't remember what side of the lake you were on either. It was a dark & stormy night...
Funny thing... right after I posted mine I had a huge yard sale & everything was sold. :)

I'm pretty satisfied at the moment. Personally, I own a ruger SR22 and a ruger p95 in .45 for pistols and a .308 rifle. In my family, we've also got .30-06, .223, a few 22 rifles, and a few shot guns not to mention 2 compound bows and 1 recurve bow.

I think there's a point where you over extend yourself and you can't adequately "prep" in all calibers... what we have right now is more than enough fire power for 99.9% of the wildlife we'd see in my BOL. I'd like to add a few things here and there, namely a .357 for my dad in the coming year (probably one for myself to match). I'd also consider an AR, but that's down the road a ways in my budget. To live a subsistence lifestyle right now, we're pretty much set.

I am pretty well set for now. More ammo would be good, could always use for barter. Probably would like a GOOD BOV.

In reality none had to do with prepping. I rarely hunt, going to the store is much easier. (But I do buy a license every year just to support Fish & Game). I like to target shoot but my main thing is collecting guns I like. The engineering, workmanship & history of certain guns has always intrigued me.

Edit... One thing I'd like to add... All of my guns are very well behaved. They never go out alone and don't go around hurting people.

Now is a good time that you/we might want to think about trading some guns and get something you/we may be deficient in such as night vision equipment. There are things on the market now that weren't available a few years back.

Excellent point! I wouldn't have come up with that on my own.

I love my Lee Enfield .303 scoped out with custom monty carlo sport stock,300 yards is no problem,too bad just the other day I leaned it against the bumper of my truck at the range and then backed right over it,gonna miss that one ;)


Edit-JPARIZ,what is your opinion on the Heritage single 6 22/22mag?I have two,one being the pearl stub birds head and the other is with the western camo grips and 5 1'2" barrel.I don't know about you,but these are the funnest plinksters i've ever had.I've had one for some time and just recently aquired the other.The older one has been through the mill,and for a cheap single action revolver,has proven to be very dependable and has held up well through the years,my only complaint would be the blueing could be better,but for the price I paid,I can't say anything negative about these.Love throwing mags through them.

I sold one of my SIG P226s today - an older SCT model, for 20% more than I paid for it. The guy may want some ammo too, so I may be able to make a little more to go with that.

I plan to use the proceeds to upgrade an optic for one of my rifles, or maybe upgrade from factory Hogue stocks on a couple of my bolt actions to something more solid, to aid in accuracy.

As for what I want - I really want a 7.62 AR-style battle rifle with a quality 20 inch barrel that is a gas piston design and is very accurate. None are available commercially yet, but when one is, that monster will be mine, all mine....

The FN SCAR Mk20 would be perfect, but I have been waiting so long now for a commercial version to be made available...it is my own Holy Grail.

Most of the guns on my wanted list are Military Surplus guns since that seems to be the direction my collection is heading. My wish list is way too long for print but I'll give you some highlights:

First and foremost I want my CMP Garand to arrive, probably another 3 weeks or so it should be here.

Need another Marlin 336, this one in .30WCF with a waffle top
Winchester 1886 in .33WCF
M1 Carbine hopefully with a WWII serial #
Mauser K98
Need to replace the SMLE that I sold years ago (stupid thing to do)
Springfield M1A

Handguns I'm looking for:
Ruger Blackhawk in .45 Colt
Milspec 1911 (haven't decided which one)
Colt SAA
Walther P38 (WWII issue would be great)
P08 Luger
Browning High Power
Colt 1908 and 1903 hammerless
