    Yes.

    A Keltec P32 or Beretta Tomcat.

    Not sure why, I’ve just always liked .32 auto.

    When I started in LE lots of the old timers carried .32’s and .25’s as backup guns.

    I’m leaning towards a KT and making it a third gun. Why the hell not.

    I always liked handguns but actually owned few until recent years when I suddenly got the urge to collect a few and try new things. I'm pretty practical so I started picking up a few options for concealed carry. I was effectively looking for options that filled some kind of niche for carry like something smaller (led to a Kahr CM9) or something that was carryable but offered more capacity (led to a G26).

    In the last year, I developed an interest in some top brands that I had never owned and also an interest in some metal framed guns to go with the polymer wonders. I started thinking about guns that I might pass on to my sons and some of the metal framed guns just had more appeal than the modern polymer gun. These two interests combined with a desire to own some G19-sized guns and lead me to purchase my first Sig (P239) and my first CZ (PCR). I haven't shot them a ton yet but they're cool and there's something nice about the way the P239 shoots.

    I'm usually looking for things that fill some kind of void so I've lately been thinking about getting a 40 because I don't own one and I've also been thinking about getting an HK because I've never owned one. I've now tried a Sig and CZ and HK is on my watchlist.

    If I did get another one it would be a Sig P365 with the 12 round mag - which of course is illegal in NY.

    I like the 32 a lot of old musicians. And gamblers carried them that's what got my interest started !

    I'm pretty much done with more polymer. Done with all autos unless I find a crazy deal somewhere.

    I still want another "carry" style revolver. It would need 6 shots and have either a 2 or 3 inch barrel. Leaning toward Kimber's K6S, although Colt and Smith are still potentials. Perhaps a Ruger Blackhawk in 45LC/ACP? Just 'cause.

    Eventually I want a lever gun in 357. I'm hoping that Henry expands their side gate series to those.

    Nothing is "gotta have". If I never bought another gun I'd be content.

    My heart is torn between either a nice Boss side-by-side shotgun in 16 guage, or a Holland and Holland 470 express double.


    My wallet is saying a used Hi-Point.

    My local dealer has a S&W 327 performance center, used but never fired that the price has dropped to $800. Light enough to carry but big enough that it would be comfortable to shoot at the range. I wish it had a 3" barrel but I have been wanting that "one" revolver for a while and I think this is it.

    and a Gen 5 19 with the front serations.

    Well, I had a AK that was peaking my interest but decided I didn't need another caliber in the house. So, my Sig 556 Patrol/SWAT will have to do for now...

    So, I've been interested in another Browning Hi Power 9 or 40 but everyone seems to think they have the last one on the planet for sale so the asking prices are in the stratosphere! I have one but two is always better than one!

    So, now I've been revisiting maybe a Witness in 10mm.

    Tomorrow may bring something else into play. It always does!

    Possibly an AR10 in .308. Might make a nice all around woods/mountain gun.

    When I buy a new gun I usually order it. I don't like guns that have had everyone's D-beaters all over it. So I'd say, yeah, I go on a mission.


    And yes, I've a no-lock "J" frame on the short list iffens I don't get sidetracked by something else. Lol!

    Thinking I need a .22 pistol for plinking. Accuracy matters and I’m thinking a S&W Victory or Browning Buckmark

    I actually wasnt even seriously looking for something new, but while perusing the local gun classifieds for a friend, I came upon someone offering a Glock 19 gen 3 in exchange for a Shield 9MM.

    I'm trading my Shield tomorrow for what'll be my second 19.

    Other than that I still have an itch for a 20 or a 40. Maybe for my birthday I'll find a deal on one.

    Not really on a mission but I have decided to get into the AR pistol craze. I ordered a PSA pistol lower and am now trying to decide on which barreled upper to start with, 5.56, 223 Wylde or a 300 Blackout.

    I have about ten on my watch list at any time plus another twenty on my if the price is right list. Right now I have four waiting at my FFL to pick up next time I'm home. Might be another depending how it goes on Gunbroker.

    A numbers matching PO8 Lugar. Have always wanted one. So much to learn about them, that I am half scared to do the deed.

    I keep thinking about a 9mm carbine (probably AR). I have a couple of normal lowers...and I gather than can be converted to 9mm, but the cost of doing that bugs me, and some of the conversions require modifying the Glock mags.
