    Wilson EDC X9....but I need to hold one first, which seems impossible here in NC. Not even shoot one, just hold one.

    I’ve wanted a transferable 63A Stoner since 1997...

    The only thing really on my list right now is a Glock 41 and a Type 2 FN-FAL 50.00

    2 that will probably round me out and start me on not needing anything else..

    1. Lever action Winchester or Marlin in 30-30 or probably .357 Magnum
    2. Single stack 9MM probably a Glock 43X or Walther PPS

    need to sell a Dan Wesson .357 and a semi auto shotgun first though to finance that.

    When I set up the range at my hunting property I started shooting a lot more particularly 22s. I have a couple Ruger SR22s, a Ruger Standard (mk1), a Charter Arms 22, a Ruger Single Six, and a Charger clone. All are pretty fun to use on my knock down steel targets and plates. While I do run some centerfire pistols on the steel I can shoot a hundred more 22s cheaper than centerfire and get the same effect.

    So now I'm looking at higher capacity 22s like the Taurus TX22, the Keltec CP33 or even the Keltec P17.

    gun wise 2 guns then i can say im pretty much done...a lever action for Deer and Coyotes in 30-30 or .357 Magnum and a single stack 9mm for summer carry..im down to Glock 43x,48,PPS or Shield lol.

    then i move on to accessories for what i have...i had debated bolt action or lever action for my centerfire rifle(other than the M1 garand,ar15 and single shot .223)for hunting....and went lever action..i just love them more than bolts..

    Gun desires wax and wane with me. I'll really want something for a while. Research it. Maybe handle one at a gun shop and them the desire just fades. Was this way with a PMR-30. Almost bought one. Hesitated and now only sort of want one.

    Nothing really pinging my radar right now. Probably going to buy an LCP II pretty soon, but that is more about buying tools than having fun. My son 'borrowed' my LCP Custom and I do not think it is coming back.

    I have really been enjoying my Varmint AR at the 600 yard range. Some sort of new long range rifle may be on the horizon. Maybe in 6.5 Creedmoor.

    So, LCP II - soon.

    New rifle - maybe.

    I don't need a cotton pickin' thing! My BD is coming up in just a few days and I usually buy a BD present for myself. This year is especially frustrating as there is nothing on my "want" list at all!
